Here is another tip for getting your collectibles for cheap or to flip. Hasbro has decided to make 2 G.I. Joe/Trasnformers sets for their club members. The two sets are Marissa Faireborn and Afterbreaker (does not transform, boo) and Old Snake with a duo of BAT Drones. Retailers are already pre-selling these for around $65 for the first set and $115 for the latter.
Here is the kicker, if you want these for your collection and don’t want to pay markup or simply to try and flip for a few bucks go to toyarama.com and join either the G.I. Joe or Transformers club, it’s that simple. It will cost you $44 but you get a free figure and more chances at exclusives like these that other non-club members don’t have. You are going to sell the free figure on eBay to help recover your membership cost, or you can keep it. I went ahead and totaled it up and you are looking at $165 total then $10 to ship if you’re cheap like me.
This one is pretty simple. You might want to jump on this while supplies last. Once this trick gets out they won’t he around long.
