I’m delighted to announce the launch of the Tommy’s War Collectors Club for 2018.
Since it’s original launch in 2016 the club has grown to over 150 members in 2017, and with a 20% discount on all purchases online and at shows many members have saved more than the cost of the membership – and received a free figure!
While there is one significant change to the club in 2018, the cost remains the same;
- UK members – £25.00
- EU (outside the UK) – £30.00
- Rest of the World – £35.00
The aim of the club is simple. To offer the best value for regular Tommy’s War customers with a discount on purchases and an exclusive figure each year.
For 2018 I’ve listened to what members are telling me and changed things slightly. Now, rather than by selecting a figure by ballot and waiting while it is sculpted and manufactured, the figure is produced in advance and available when the customer joins the club (so, sent with the Membership Pack).
I’m delighted to announce the Collectors Club Special for 2018 will be a Private, of the 7th Bn Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers as they appeared at Hulluch in 1916. Part of the Irish 16th Division and were involved in an infamous incident at Hulluch in April 1916 where elements of the Division were gassed.
The figure is depicted in cold weather gear from over the 1915/16 winter including a leather jerkin and wellington boots. He carries the PH Hood which failed so miserably for Hulluch leading to production of the Small Box Respirator being expedited.
Members will also receive a 2018 membership card;
Plus, all members receive 4 newsletters and all available catalogues sent directly in the post. For 2018 I’ve beefed-up the membership pack so it has a little more impact and all new members receive the previous newsletters that are available (that’s all to date except issue 1).
Don’t forget, when you join you can also select your exclusive membership figure now, so from a drop-down list you can choose from TW32CC01 (Sniper, Western Front 1916), TW32CC02 (Sergeant, Household Cavalry, Western front 1916) and TW32CC03 (Private, 7th Bn Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, Hulluch 1916).

I think we’ve now got a really strong selection of Collectors Club Specials, and the option to select is proving quite popular. My next task is to get all three painted as box art (which I’m moving on to next, so watch this space!) and, of course, choose a subject for 2019, which I plan to have ready for September 2018.
I’m asked if customers who have never been a member can buy the other Collectors Club Specials. The figures are only available to members and not on general sale. However, members can buy multiple memberships and while the maximum discount is set at 20% is does allow the customer to receive the exclusive figure.
Example; A UK customer pays £25.00 for a membership and selects figure TW32CC03. They then log back in and purchase a second membership at £20.00 (£25.00 less their discount of 20%) and select figure TW32CC01. That customer received both Collector Club Specials – but on future orders will find 20% discounts applied to their orders.
I believe the Collectors Club offers good value for money, and it’s a great way to enjoy Tommy’s War figures. I’m currently working on releases for 2018 and I’m planning more exciting figures in the range, so join now and take advantage of the discount and bag yourself one of the exclusive figures today!
