My first FSS with the club. Got mine today! Got the usual piddly QC complaints, but VERY pleased with these two. AND there are better ones( more anticipated, and sought after for me) on the way!!! Can't wait for the next two! PLUS, I have a 2014 ZI con set arriving tomorrow. Happier than a pig in dirt right now! 😃

I took Fed Ex, and I see others with same getting tracking info. I just assume the installment payers go out after the full payers. Which is fair.

Got mine this afternoon. I got to say, I didn't know what think about the Arctic Night Creeper till I had it in hand. I like it! It's just a cool figure. Thats it! Just cool! Baricade is another story.... Love that helmet! unfortunately, this is the figure that has me beleiving we should be on the look out on the QC side of things. The Factory put the helmet on mine before the hair application dried and some was scraped away. Its fixable, and so far none of my facebook freinds who have recieved theirs have the issue. I hope all of yours are OK. This figure, IMO, is very well done, and looks fantastic. The accessories are perfect for him as well. All in all, very happy with batch #2!! Looking forward to Billy Arboc and Interrogator!!

Rguthei1@twcny.rr.com
03-15-2016, 06:59 AM
#2!! Looking forward to Billy Arboc and Interrogator!! maybe hold off on the spoilers next month. While mine did reach me yesterday some people might not have received their figures yet. I bet Billy and Interrogator will be towards the end

kelty11@verizon.net

Batch number 2 is fantastic. The Arctic Night Creeper is the best though (have to track down the other 2 Night Creeper figures from 2009)

Other than the 2nd set of figures shipping three weeks after the 1st set of figures, does anybody know when the 3rd shipment is coming?

Are we back to every 4 weeks now?

arock1922@yahoo.com

Impatient? (I'm assuming that's a playful little joke, but if it's not...)

We were told when we ordered last June that the figures would ship between October/November-ish through March/April-ish. Considering that we got our first pair of figures the last week of February, and it was never really disclosed to us WHY they were so far behind, all I asked was if there is an "intended" schedule in place now. I wasn't looking for exact dates. Besides I'm sure I'm not the only one who's curious.

Slamgod7140@hotmail.com
03-18-2016, 11:40 PM
We got both first shipments (at least I did) 3 weeks apart almost to the day. The club did state directly they were sending them at those intervals. Should see the next set middle first week of April, Rock.

I have Jammer in my guess as well. Only along with Pathfinder. Should ship soon, if not already.

Question, does the thirteenth figure get mailed with 11/12 or does it come out later?

j_yoders@hotmail.com

Really hoping they post that Fire B.A.T. in the store after. Would love to army build that with my million other B.A.T.S.

I did not get Billy, Interrogator or Fire Bat. Did the club ship random figures to people. I got a character from 1990 and a UK version of a US figure) - Don't want to spoil it for everyone else.

kelty11@verizon.net
04-07-2016, 09:11 AM
Here's my two cents on the these figures:
1. Pathfinder - This is an excellent figure; great assortment of weapons; Receiving this figure was kind of a nostalgia trip for me as I got the original for Christmas 1990 (which was my massive Joe Christmas) :):(
2. Jammer - another excellent addition to the SAF collection. It's a shame we probably won't get a complete SAF/ UK Joe set before the end of 2016.

iamcanadian@sasktel.net
04-07-2016, 01:46 PM
Thought for sure that the BAT would've been in this round. Maybe I'll get the billy set when mine show up in a couple weeks.

kelty11@verizon.net
04-24-2016, 10:47 AM
I got mine yesterday and I think they are great. Bullhorn is especially fantastic as he comes with all of his original accessories from 1990 and The Inferno BAT is much better than I thought it would be.

Speaking of Bullhorn, it is a real shame that we will never be able to complete the 1990 series of figures (Thanks a lot Hasbro and corporate greed). Between Hasbro and club a vast majority of the 1990 characters have been released (including the forthcoming Sky Patrol). We only need Ambush, Capt. Grid Iron, Freefall, Laser Viper, Rampart, Rock Viper (maybe), Salvo, Stretcher and Sub-Zero, Cold Front, Decimator, Mjr Storm, Overlord, Updraft and Vapor.

Here's hoping that FSS 5 includes Laser-Viper and Salvo (he has been on every forum wishlist since FSS 1 was announced back in 2011/12.

Very, very true and very sad. I was hoping to some day have ME versions of Sneak Peak (maybe in FFS5), Crystal Ball, Fast Draw (I can't even count the number of times he has shown up on our request lists), Dress Blues Gung-Ho, Astro-Viper, Blizzard, Hydro-Viper, Toxo-Viper Ver 1, Backblast, Countdown, Payload (ver 1 or 2), Deep Six, Rock N Roll, Scoop, Stalker with Kayak and TARGAT (also a frequent presence on forum lists), etc, etc. :)

Slamgod7140@hotmail.com
04-25-2016, 09:57 PM
In all seriousness, the three I'd love to see from those extensive lists are Rock and Roll ver2, TARGAT, and Payload for sure. Dress blues Gung Ho would be a great bonus!!

I asked this on another thread, but I'll ask it here too. Will the Club be selling the FSS figures in the Club Store this time? In previous FSS they hit the Club Store about 1-2 months after delivery to the subscribers. We're 4 shipments in; almost a month since BotCon; and nothing. I'm thinking about the "must purchase and ship by 12/31" rule, and wonder if they'll be a mad dash after Thanksgiving. MY budget would like to spread the 4 figures I want out over a couple of months, so I can sign up for FSS 5.

Well, I going to venture that with the con happening this week the schedules will be all screwed up and we haven't a hope in hades of getting our last three figs until July. Should have been here this weekend IMHO. If I don't see them by Tues, I think I might get a bit cranky. not holding my breath though. :/

Is it just me, or does it already feel like this FSS isn't holding its value. I feel like a chunk of these figures are selling at less than what we paid for them already. And it's not that I got the FSS for its collector's value, but I also don't want to feel like I'm wasting money, but it definitely seems like I would have been better off cherry-picking this go round, even at the increased costs that that entails.

No, they are for the most part still over the cost of the sub. $30-$60 selling on average. Yes some of the less desirable figures (Barricade are around $20-$25), but Billy, Law and Order Sell around $60 to make up for it. I think that more people subbed than usual thinking this is the "last one" and scalpers really went nuts thinking they had a $$$$ goldmine as the last sets ever. Then you have those that, IMHO, try to discourage people from subbing by running down the parts choices, the figures offered etc, threatening to not sub. There goal is to get less people to subscribe because they buy multiple subs to drive up the value. I piecemealed the FSS 1.0, and paid double for my niece and nephew and subbed ever since. It is best to just go in for yourself, if you don't like certain figures and are not a completist then you have some good trade fodder for someone that is.
