Think Outside the Toy Box: GI Joe & Transformers Club Exclusives

IMG_1970-1

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.

There are already popping up on eBay.  Marissa and Afterbreaker is already at $75 and Old Snake is $125.

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.
