If you are a fan or collector of G.I.Joe, 2015 and 2016 have not been two of the brighter years in the long history of the brand. In fact rumors have been swirling for a while now that the GI.Joe Collectors Club itself would be closing its doors at the end of this year. This due to comments from G.I.Joe Club runner Brian Savage which stated,
We will not be taking any more memberships after March 16th, as this will ensure that everyone will et this years’ free membership figure. All remaining Memberships will end on or before the December 2016 Newsletter issue.
But, in the March issue of the G.I.Joe Collectors Club Newsletter there is now a caveat which was previously not included in Brian Savages statement. In this month’s newsletter it reads,
FSS 5.0 information will be coming soon
Now, seeing as how it takes over a year for the club to develop, advertise, run the subscription period, and mail out a brand new action figure subscription service to the subscribers, this would all but ensure that the club will indeed not be ending in December of 2016. So for fans of G.I.Joe, who have had almost nothing to be excited about for the past 2 years, this is exciting news!
