Scrap the vehicle pack and give us Heartwrencher, perhaps? I was thinking Ninja Force Scarlett, as well- don't know if that would earn a new headsculpt, though...

IF it wasn't for the fact that They probably wouldn't give us a straight answer I'd officially ask them if The Figure is a character new to the Club's offerings or not But they most likely would not so I won't bother.

Steel Raven- meh I guess the Iron Klaw needs some troops, but I would rather have someone connected to Sunbow or early MARVEL/IDW storylines.

Keeping with the Raven theme- What about Raven the Strato-Viper Pilot. We'd get a female Cobra Pilot, a new head sculpt and probably a removable helmet.

Mara would also be a cool out of left field character. Perfect companion to the new Shipwreck figure and the 2 Eels from last year not to mention the Undertow(s) from the '15 Convention set.

Shooter is a great guess. ( not
The first in my group to think of her though... :0/) but I did think of TF Jinx unmasked, or a new head sculpt with a removable cowl. TF just seems to be the track of theme they are taking ( yeah, I know...DUHHH!! Lol. :0) ). I'm excited for this lot of figures! Well mainly because it's my first FSS, but I really looking forward to adding the to my collection!

As much as I'd love see a Tiger Force Jinx ( yeah, yeah, yeah...Lol! ) the more I thought of it, I started to wonder how much they may focus on the club comic. Being my first year here I'm still learning how the guesswork brings forth knowledge.

Nice thing is there are only 4 international TF figures really left for the Club to do
Hit & Run

sm.bigkid.28@gmail.com
07-16-2015, 06:55 PM
I would say the most likely would be Ninja Force Scarlett, Munitia or Mistriss Armada since it does say we're getting a new head sculpt. Many of the others can use existing parts but those three are different enough that the club would need to do something different.

NS550@aol.com
07-17-2015, 05:57 AM
I feel like I may be the only one that would not be excited for a ninja force scarlet. Shooter would be great but I doubt they'd put two first time figures in the same line, they already have billy. The female doc would be nice, her only print so far was in that con set in vintage format. I think my top choice would be for a GI Jane considering last year they put out the Joe Colton at joecon, but I saw a lot of good points to say it may be Munitia. The wait for this one will be tough!

Post #54 and the clues aren't that helpful. New head sculpt, female figure... too generic. I was hoping for some ADDITIONAL NEW clues, like an enemy of GI Joe, Character is from the Sunbow/MARVEL/IDW/DDP/ Toyline Joe verse. Still vague to keep the mystery, but not so overly generic it could be anyone.

I'm not thinking Scarlett myself seeing as how of the various Females from the Vintage Era Scarlett is the only one that the Club hasn't gotten their hands on before now (Of course Duke, Storm Shadow, Snake-Eyes, Roadblock, and a decent bunch of other Men have also escaped the Club's Clutches so far (even if Clutch didn't))

markkurowski@hotmail.com
10-28-2015, 02:18 PM
There are still a three more original TF figures that need to be done that I recall, (Roadblock, Dusty, and Tripwire) in addition to the foreign ones. My vote for the mystery denial figure would be for TF Jinx.

rjhiii@sover.net
10-28-2015, 04:14 PM
That would certainly be a major let down, but it might explain why the clues this year are as generic as : It will be made of plastic, It will have paint...lol!

kelty11@verizon.net
11-15-2015, 11:40 AM
I second that! TF Jinx would be a major let down. TF Blizzard or traditional Blizzard on the other hand...

jrgrfg@aol.com
11-15-2015, 07:58 PM
Yes, a TF Jinx as the 13th figure would be a MAYOR let down. I would be happy with any yet made female like Steel Raven, Munitia, Mayday etc.

iamcanadian@sasktel.net
12-09-2015, 11:31 AM
With a new head sculpt as a clue, that would leave out Marisa. I also believe that would leave out shooter, as Freestyle is basically how shooter looked in the comic, all she would need is a sniper rifle and a name change.
Can ninja force Scarlet actually be done with existing parts and a new head sculpt? I don't think accurately.
I think Munitia or GI Jane are likely candidates. An ARAH accurate covergirl is also a possibility, but I doubt it.

rjhiii@sover.net
12-09-2015, 11:44 AM
I would say Shooter is more of a small pony tail pulled back and /or a short haircut which is different than Freestyle whose hair is up to fit in the helmet.

iamcanadian@sasktel.net
12-09-2015, 12:33 PM
I don't know. Looks pretty much like the same person. Skin tone is even similar. I think the hair isn't different enough to warrant a new head sculpt.

Tiger Force Jinx seems the most plausible. She is in the latest club comic, has her mask off and on at different points. I would love it. Even better if she came with two heads, one unmasked and one masked.

bassistcarlos@sbcglobal.net
03-13-2016, 10:35 AM
I agree, but really; another Jinx? That'll be the 5th ME version of Jinx, when some figures have yet to get one modern era figure. I'm probably wrong, but I'm hoping she's part of FSS 5; and the club really surprises us. Nothing against Jinx, I just prefer a variety of characters, over variations of an individual.

iamcanadian@sasktel.net
03-14-2016, 01:49 PM
I've been checking parts and now think Ninja Force Scarlett can be accomplished with just a new head sculpt. You could use ROC Baroness torso and upper legs, Zarana arms and feet and Zandar lower legs to get a fairly close build. I'd prefer the head sculpt to not be a pony tail but the long flowing main she has in the comic. If I had Zarana's arms and feet I'd give it a shot. Still think it's going to be Munitia or Jane though.

rjhiii@sover.net
03-18-2016, 12:39 PM
Sadly, I have come to the conclusion that we are getting Tiger Force Jinx- Oh yeah...whoopie...

Who would have wanted the first ever Shooter? or Mistress Amanda, Mara, Cadet Deming, or Raven? Or a ME Munitia, or Iron Klaw's right hand woman Steel Raven. What we really need is a TF Jinx to go with the four other ME Jinx figures already produced.

I come tot his conclusion from the clues given, the delay to FSS 4.0 and the recent appearance (about the time the 13th should have already reached us if no delays had occurred) of TF Jinx in the Club comic. I am hoping the Club goes out with a huge bang on FSS 5.0 and has no, zero, none, nadda repaints, but only previously un-produced figures AND ME versions of characters in the holes from 87 up in order in their original look that have no figures in the ME whatsoever. This means sadly, no original Sneak Peak, no Charboil ( IMO the ROC one is good enough anyways), No Tan Clutch (the POC is close enough), No Listen N Fun Tripwire, No real Motor Viper (Nitro Viper from ROC is close enough)...

charles.phillips@penske.com
03-18-2016, 04:57 PM
Steel Raven would be awesome. I really like Iron Klaw and that crew. TF Jinx seems to be the one though. Obviously the club has a hard job, having to please Hasbro (yes/no on what parts/character to use) having to please the fans (impossible, since we all have different wants) and then to have to be last in line in China for the orders. I'm just glad we get anything. I tend to buy two or three of the limited supply Hasbro puts out just to satisfy my desire for Joes. At least the club tries, so yeah, unless it's more Grand Slam repaints I'll be happy with whatever we get.

arock1922@yahoo.com
03-18-2016, 07:25 PM
Perhaps they plan on using a new, unmasked Jinx head with the "buzz cut" for the Heartwrencher exclusive. I could easily see a female Dreadnok having a buzz cut.

Wait! I have not received the magazine yet (road to Italy is so long :S...), but, at the same time there are of clues said she is not.
We got in last 4 years 2 unmasked Jinx, I can understand all, but I feel quite silly they set a third new head for a character which received 2 new ones in last 2 shows.
Evenmore we get 2 TF in 4.0 line

So
Up to the end - until the final spoiler - I rest with Munitia, she is also appeared in the Club comics last year...
and I really believe Jinx TF is 1/13 of FSS 5.0.

Wait! I have not received the magazine yet (road to Italy is so long :S...), but, at the same time there are of clues said she is not.
We got in last 4 years 2 unmasked Jinx, I can understand all, but I feel quite silly they set a third new head for a character which received 2 new ones in last 2 shows.

Good points. May the guessing continue.... I too think Munitia is likely.

That would be a cool choice as well as Steel Raven or Munitia.

I have accepted the fact that it will be TF Jinx, even though I really, really wanted Shooter...

Yeah,... the more my nephew and I discuss the fact that the last two figs in the run will be Tiger Force the more were convinced its Jinx as well..But my fingers are crossed for Shooter, or Steel Raven. Next shipment is already a week late, so I wonder whats going on though?:confused:

My preference is Steel Raven. Second to her I would take almost any of the other ladies except TF Jinx.

I hope not; the nerd rage would be off the chart! The 13th slot is definitely not the place to put a brand new character.

rjhiii@sover.net

Stilleto will be an SDCC exclusive, and probably the only Joe representation. Not even a line to support her.

See I differ in opinion. I think it would be awesome to get a brand new character as the 13th. I think lack of new characters has been one of the lines biggest mistakes. That being said, we'll get TF Jinx. Which would be a disappointment, but I'm sure I'll like it...eventually.

I love Tiger Force. I super hope its Tiger Force JInx. If it isnt then I guess we wont be getting her ever. Im tired of all the people jumping on the negativity bandwagon for each figure, its ignorant. People simply like to bash anything thats popular so they seem cool. I dont know who these other extremely rare characters are. I consider myself a Joe fan but I dont read the new IDW comics, I would be tremendously meh for Steel Raven.

kelty11@verizon.net
05-21-2016, 10:15 AM
Knowing that the next shipment will be TF-centric I have given up hope of receiving anyone else but TF jinx.

Slamgod7140@hotmail.com
05-21-2016, 11:08 AM
Wow, likeing this rant a bit there GOLD5. Totally with you on the Jinx. As much as I can hope for, or would totally dig seeing something new-ish, or one off/original, I have to admit I am a TF fanboy and I would love to see a Jinx in my collection.

jrgrfg@aol.com
05-21-2016, 12:05 PM
TF Jinx for the 13th would be a major disappointment. I know some people do want her for their TF set, so she would be more tolerable in the regular FSS 5 line up. But to get her as the 13th mystery figure, that would just suck.

bassistcarlos@sbcglobal.net
05-21-2016, 05:49 PM
Tiger Force never did anything for me, but we're a diverse bunch. Due to the limited production of the 13th figure, I'd rather see it be a figure that some can take and some could leave. Figures that don't have any modern era representation, like Shooter & Steel Raven, ought to be available in greater numbers than the 13th figure; and easier to get.

But then what would be the selling point of the FSS? The 13th figure should be a rare, highly sought after figure to drive the sales. I think FSS 3.0 would have sold a lot better than it did, but because of the surprise Grand Slam of FSS 2.0, most club members didn't feel like they had to order a set for that "special" figure the club was offering anymore.

In my honest opinion, I think if the club gave us original characters, or "first time produced" figures, now there's a big draw and a lot more people would have signed up for FSS sets.

But that's just my opinion.

while i would have no issue with Munitia, all i can see in my head is a 50th Baroness with blue accents, and i don't want that. the evidence for TF Jinx is pretty compelling, but would that be the first character repeat within FSS? that seems like something they would avoid.

Technically they have done two B.A T.s, Nano & Inferno.

Not sure if that counts though.

I think the club did good ok with Blackout and Frostbite figures. Both figures, one as a new sculpt era figure & one as an arctic driver, both fit that category of some would take it, some could leave it. Grand Slam was a bit of a let down because, possibly like Jinx, there were already a few modern era versions of the figure. Grand Slam wasn't "exclusive enough". I think Jinx will be the same. I agree with you, if the club used the "first time in the modern era" as a selling point, it would drive sales. But since they didn't, it's not out of possibility for the club to release a 3rd modern era version of Grand Slam, a 3rd modern era version of Frostbite, or possibly a 5th modern era version of Jinx. 25th & ROC Grand Slam as well as Retaliation Jinx are pretty easy to get, which their exclusivity less appealing. However, if the club did something like Marauder SGT. Slaughter or Maurader Footloose, Battle Corps Keel Haul, it would still be exclusive, but not the only option for people who want that character.

I think that Billy should have been the mystery 13th figure now that it look like it will be TF Jinx. Although we all could be wrong!!

05-22-2016, 03:34 PM
I'm not totally convinced it isn't heartwrencher. given the impending and unceremonious end to the club, that may have scraped the vehicle and pushed the figure to fss. I'm doubtful we'll see fss 5, and another exclusive that hasn't been mentioned since last year seems unlikely as well.

Army builders though, Rock. There are supposed to be several versions of that character. But I do understand the point. I like that idea of exclusivity for sure. Surprised we never really talked about that, honestly, it's a good point.

Billy was this year's strongest selling point. It wouldn't have made sense to keep him a surprise. I'm not sure when the club knew that the end of their contract was coming, but I'm glad they got to Billy and Pythona before the end. I think they'll do the same with "original colors" Sneak Peak for FSS 5. It will be a strong selling point for the ARAH completists.

I want to stay positive!Even in FSS 2.0 the final delivery was made by 2 Oktober guards, but we got an unrelated figure... Grand Slam was "unexpected"... maybe also here.... we could get a (positive) unexpected figure... :o

I have a question for Admin:
With people going on Summer Vacations and also considering the rise of package theft (my local police department advised citizens via Twitter of a rash of package theft in my area) why have we not been given a quick update of when to expect the Final FSS 4.0 Shipment including the 13th figure (to remain on topic)?

I think it would have been helpful to address this in the most recent member communication email that went out shortly after Con. Any thoughts on that? Thank you in advance!

cjlloyd1,
I have heard the last week of July. I will be on vacation that week and will have the post office hold all my mail and I will pick it up in person when I get back. If you used the FedEx shipping option they might have a similar service.
And since this is a thread about the 13th figure, I think it is Tiger Force Jinx.

c.j.lloyd1@juno.com
07-08-2016, 07:43 PM
I think it is Tiger Force Jinx as well.
As far as the shipping options go those are chosen in advance and I have USPS and I can't change that now. In the future I will likely choose a shipping service with more options. At the moment I just want to know when they are shipping so I can let my neighbor who doesn't work keep an eye out for the package. That's why I asked.

kwo_bubba@hotmail.com
07-08-2016, 08:14 PM
I'd like to know how someone on one of the forums already got the last figures. There's no way they were accidentally sent since they have an extra box attached. Someone at the club must've got some out to somebody.

kwo_bubba@hotmail.com
07-08-2016, 08:15 PM
And yeah, they aren't shipping until the end of the month. That's been confirmed. Homefront Heroes needs to be going out then.

jared.vitosh@gmail.com
07-08-2016, 09:40 PM
cjlloyd1, sorry for not being clearer earlier. I use the USPS shipping as well and I was trying to say that you can go online and have the post office stop delivering all your mail and pick it up later. That is probably what I will do since I will be gone. I mentioned FedEx might have that option to for those that use it, but I don't use it myself.

Not telling anyone anything you don't know, but the figures are shipping next week, so we should have them by next Friday, and the mystery will be solved. I'm thinking TF Jinx as well. As long as she looks cool I won't complain. I'm thinking a repaint of Vypra, maybe with a head more accurate to the V 1 and 2 Jinx's? New head memo kinda throws me off, as they've had 4 or more ME Jinx figures, so why not just repaint one of those? But, a new head will be interesting to see. I kinda hope they don't just put 2 heads in there. Those always scare me to death when I'm trying to change them, I'm afraid the neck ball will break off like it did with 2 different BATs for me (25th anniversary-broken in the package and his head popped off when I pulled him out of the bubble; and the Arctic BAT-broke when I tried just moving the head!)

Josiahdongraham@gmail.com
07-13-2016, 04:37 PM
I had two Arctic Bat's do that to me too!! Since we're getting Steel Raven in the next FSS I'm hoping for either Dr Knox or Tiger Force Jinx with a movie accurate headsculpt. I'm pretty certain it will be jinx

I did not get mine yet either, just saw the expensive one go up on EBay and get sold right away at $90. Glad I subbed as that is almost a quarter of the cost of subbing the whole FSS.

Some people don't like to know until it arrives and many of us tried not to spoil the surprise.

Good news. I'm seeing on other forums that some of the "lost" 13th figure boxes are starting to show up thanks to postal workers opening the invoice to read the address inside. I've seen multiple reports of that happening.
