Would you want the Joe Club to offer you?

I've never been a member of the Club. A large part of that is the value for the price I would pay, but it's also a lack of enthusiasm for what the offer. Yes they put some excellent figures ( the Oktober Gaurd) but they also put out plenty of poor ones ( TNT , an easily customized Cover Girl etc)

I have never understood why they don't focus on making a smaller variety of figs, but making more so they can sell more, insist on packaging things rather than selling them bagged, and have avoided offering small individual items. I know I would join if I could buy bagged troop builders, extra non spring loaded vehicle weapons , figure stand, or good accessory packs.

I was curious about your thoughts.

My interest with the club pretty much died with ARAH.

as much as Rah was a part of my child that was one thing holding me back from the club in years past, as I wanted to get items that would fit on my current shelf and not stick out. I think that some of their ideas and designs in the rah style were superior repaints to what we are getting now. It's possibly because using the same style as Hasbro, more is off the table as to what they are allowed to do and use.

Same as Chad. No plans to collect any of the Millennium Edition stuff.
