whilst i don't condone casualt talk of sexual violence against women, to continue the metaphor; if they're going to screw you over, why would they care about your comfort?

What really odd is that if you want results and answers to your questions, ask them on facebook and not on their message boards. I've asked before about them holding back sets until the very end and shipping me a full set in one order. I never heard back from them. I mention it once on facebook and withing hours I had a direct response.

BTW, the answer is no, they won't hold back a full set and ship them at once. The reason was warehouse space.

Fine, so all of those people who don't want to get taken advantage of over shipping rates won't buy a set and they will still have them sitting around taking up space in their warehouse and eventually go on clearance, just like the set of 7 DTC set. Then I'll order a set.  ;)

Jinx is up. http://www.gijoeclub.com/images/2011/jinxFweb.jpg

Another must-have subscription figure, but where is her outfit from? Renegades? (She was in it, right?)

Here's the Jinx image:



Now I'm sad because that is a great figure. That means I'll want to buy it.

Dang.

I'm disappointed by Jinx.  Not so much about the outfit update, but by the fact that she doesn't have a full ninja mask like the classic figure.

I'd love to see her outfit cast in yellow, remove the blindfold (which is removable btw) and give her blond hair. Make her in a two pack with Cobra Commanders son...  ;)

As long as they keep put up the photos I'll keep copying and pasting them:

Alright - I'm gonna subscribe. The after market on the figs I don't want will probably pay for some of the cost of the figs that I do want. How much is this racket gonna be?

Not bad as an updated figure, but certainly not the jinx I'm interested in. This is the kind of figure I'd probably pick up at regular retail for $7.99, but not interested at the subscription procing. I'm kinda hoping that cover girl is a big departure from her original figure as well, as I will have much less temptation to subscribe. Cover girl is the only possible "must have" left in the bunch, with a few i would like, and the rest I have no interest in.
