Here’s the first detailed look at the 2017 GI Joe Collector’s Club exclusive free figure, the Man of Mysteries: The Arcane Adventurer.

The Arcane Adventurer has a lot of really cool gear. Check out that sheet of hieroglyphics and special gun cartridges.

This guy is the newest member of the GI Joe Adventure Team, and he’s one part X-Files and one part Fringe. He’s designed to help deal with all the supernatural and cryptozoological elements that the AT keep encountering. He’s seen it all and yeah, it may have given him a grey streak in his hair, but he’s more than equipped to handle it.

The figure ships free to members in nothing but his turtleneck sweater and boxer shorts. That’s your free gift as part of the GI Joe Collector’s Club.

In addition, you can buy his outfit and gear separately in the GI Joe Club store.

And if you missed out on the sign-up period (that was until this past March) you can buy him separately with his gear at the GI Joe Club store.

This is probably one of the nicest, most elaborate 12″ figure sets that the GI Joe Club has come up with in quite some time. He has a special ruby AT dog tag, glow in the dark “laser” sword, glow in the dark mummy’s tomb, plus a whole host of other cool stuff including goggles and gun. This is a great set. Can’t wait until it shows up.

A few weeks back we got a great Adventure Team Photo of the Week from Stan J. Koy. And now Stan’s back with another incredible photo of his Adventure Team crew out at work. This one comes from the old days of the Trenches calendar. What a fantastic shot here, with Joe teaming up with his modern UK counterpart, Action Man.

And don’t forget to check out Stan’s previous AT Photo of the Week: Right Here!

We just love all the work that went into creating this diorama. Don’t let Stan have all the fun, submit your own Adventure Team photo at Adventure Team Photo of the Week and your photo could appear right here on this website, just like this one!

It’s time for another Adventure Team Photo of the Week this time from over at the Action Man Mobile Ops Forums where ActionYankee showed off this great kitbash of a 40th Action Man fuzzhead. This is the sort of intense battle we could see any Adventure Team fan falling into. And while this is technically the AT’s British cousin, it’s still a fantastic photo.

When trouble happens, call the Blue Berets for some serious artillery!

He’s dubbed this guy the Blue Beret Heavy Weapons specialist, and you can see why. Here’s what this is comprised of: Action Man Blue Beret Soldier ( Named Sean), 1 40th Action Man Infantry and Support Weapons set, several sandbags, a Timeless Joe Bazooka and Shells, and a Timeless Joe Holster and .45. Now that’s an arsenal anyone would be fearful of!

We’ve got a fun shot this time for our Adventure Team Photo of the Week! We’re certain that the Sea Adventurer will love this one from Mike Burke‎. It depicts the Sea Adventurer about to send one of his fellow AT members on an important dive. It looks like they’re already submerged deep in the depths of the ocean in the Sea Wolf submarine.

Find that submerged satellite and come home safe Joe!

Yep, this one is going to be a tough assignment… But GI Joe can handle it!

Is it a week? Then it must be time for another Adventure Team Photo of the Week! This week we get an exciting photo from Daniel Preece‎, who crafted this cool shot of a custom Adventure Team Headquarters playset. He whipped this up in Photoshop and printed it out himself. Just check out the boys on duty, preparing for another world-class adventure!

"Stand by for Adventure!"

“Stand by for Adventure!”

Here’s what Daniel had to say about the photo, “Back in my graphic arts days I fancied building my own AT Headquarters using the “flat image walls” that were in style in the 70s. Here are two panels I came up with using Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. I think I got the pics from the Not Your Average Joe website. Map was from Google. The rest is made up, inspired by the ATHQ itself.”

Check out these vintage t-shirts, featuring classic Adventure Team artwork. Fun stuff, right? You can tell this photo is from the late 70s or early 80s. But these shirts never existed, did they? Well not exactly. The first clue you can look for is that the AT logo on these shirts actually is an AC.

These vintage t-shirts are from the Brazil version of GI Joe.

These vintage t-shirts are from the Brazil version of GI Joe.

See these are actually t-shirts from Brazil, and their version of the GI Joe Adventure Team. Known there as Falcon, Joe was every bit the everyman he is in the United States, but also a bit more unique. These shirts reflect the “Adventure Collector” (Colecionador de Aventuras) era of Falcon, making him an Indiana Jones style character. Not unlike the Adventure Team, but with less of a focus on the “team”. We’ll be taking a deeper look at Falcon and some of the other versions of the GI Joe Adventure Team around the world as this website develops. But how cool would it be to have one of these t-shirts today?

It’s been a while since we’ve done an Adventure Team Photo of the Week but it seemed like now was a good time to get back into things. This photo is from Stan J. Koy, posted up on one of the Facebook Adventure Team groups. Hopefully Stan doesn’t mind us reposting here, because it’s such a nice bit of photography. And it’s pre-digital era too, which makes it even sweeter.

Now that's a volcano jumper!

Now that’s a volcano jumper!

Here’s what Stan had to say about the photo, “Proof once again that The Adventure Team Has The Situation Controlled! My still favorite- a muscle body Land Adventurer whom restarted my 12″ Joe passion in the late 1980’s, here on my honeymoon in Hawaii, hiking the Iki Trail on Kilauea on March 20th, 1998! I was on a budget- so that was an orange jumpsuit and not the Volcano Jumper one…but I’ve fixed and completed that for him since!”

The GI Joe Adventure Team never actually had a trading card set. When you think about that, it’s an odd omission. Consider that they had every other popular item of the 1970s. From lunchboxes to Colorforms, the Adventure Team had it all. Except trading cards. That is, until now! Every couple of weeks I will be posting up a trading card designed in a vintage style representing a bit of a “What if” for the GI Joe Adventure Team. Today I unveil the first card.

Tall Yellow AT Card 1

The first of many!

AT Card Back1

The cards are designed to give a hint of a story, but in classic Adventure Team tradition, they won’t give a full story. Instead it’s up to you to decide where the adventure goes from there. I thought that would have been a fun way to make the cards stand out back then.

The GI Joe Collector’s Club has been adding a variety of new items to their store, despite the rumors for the last few years that 12″ was dead to the club. First up is the pre-orders for the new Lost Talkers, allowing you to complete the set of four. Then they released a limited edition Air Security figure with full outfit (which has since sold out). Now they are offering up two “custom” items.

Just when you thought the Club was done with accessories...

Just when you thought the Club was done with accessories…

First up is the Air Security accessories. These were items that were included in the recent “Backyard Patrol” figure release. So if you missed out on that figure, at least you can get part of him. But it’s the second item that I found more intriguing.

Who's this for?

Who’s this for?

The Club is now selling a custom “slouch” hat. This isn’t from any previously released sets, so it’s a bit of a mystery why they’re selling it now. But it appears to be a custom made accessory and the Club is encouraging you to buy it for use on customs. It sure does look like a good sign to me that the GI Joe Collector’s Club is still cranking out new stuff and sweet surprises.

The GI Joe Collector’s Club has released a new mock up of the upcoming 2016 subscription figure, which is an all new version of the Atomic Man himself, Mike Power. This figure looks great, with a revamped head sculpt to make him look a bit tougher as the old sculpt was a bit Ken-like. He now has two atomic powered legs and his eye will now feature an LED light. Plus his skivvies that he comes in, will include shoes and is based on the vintage uniform from the Secret Mountain Outpost. It’s all together a great redo of the classic character.

Mike looks better than ever, with LED eye, two bionic legs and a revamped head sculpt.

As always the Club has created a uniform set for their free figure and Mike Power’s is called Field Mission Alpha. It’s got a ton of cool gear, much of which hasn’t been available for a while. The uniform itself is also based on the classic Mike Power short sleeve style. This new Atomic Man will look awesome all geared up.

His new mission pack will be sold separately.

It should be noted this is a “mock up” and while the sculpt is final, it’s only in digital format. As we saw with Doctor Isotope, minor changes could occur between now and release date. Make sure you sign up to the GIJCC before March 2016, so you can insure you get your hands on the all new Atomic Man, Mike Power!
