Does anybody have any experience with the collector's club figure subscription service? Good or bad experiences? And just how exactly do you join it? Do you join the club and then buy a subscription? Marvel Universe/Infinite is no longer enough to satisfy my addiction, I have branched out to Joe and Star Wars. My poor wife.

I think you can do both at the same time. I haven't really heard anything bad about it. Sometimes their figure choices aren't to everyone's liking, but take an 12 figure wave of any property and you will have that.

Thanks man, I will have to think about it. It would be nice to have the figures come to me without the hunt.

Yeah. I've thought about it. But, I tend to avoid some of the more out there Cobras and ninjas. Just not my thing.

I looked into it initially, but the cost of joining the club and the sub was just too damn much.

It is pretty expensive. It seems like each year they have a handful of figures that I really like, but the price is a bit much. I am on the fence.

I know a lot of folks sell off the ones they don't like. It's only bad if everybody doesn't like the same figure.

What do you all think of this? Is the GI Joe brand on its way out?

I doubt that it's dead.  It's supposed to be the cornerstone of their movieverse.

These look really cool. I am looking forward to the Kickstarter. I missed out on the adventure people one that ended recently. Their have been so many cool action figure kick starters these last 2-3 years that it is hard to keep up.

Those look amazing.

I still have a fear that a 6" GIJoe line would put me in the poor house
