G.I. Joe Collectors Club reveals FSS 3.0 Psyche Out!

Ever since the Night Force set was revealed a few years ago, fans had been clamoring online for regular versions of the Night Force characters (which is why it seems so strange that many folks are complaining about that very thing happening with the FSS this time around).

One of those characters was Psyche Out.

Well, the Club has revealed the FSS 3.0 Psyche Out today, and he’s a bit different accessory-wise from the Night Force version.  He still has the wrist radars and the hand-held, but he no longer has the PoC Recondo backpack (which frankly was a fantastic touch by the Club for the Con version) and he comes with a Zartan backpack instead.

Keep watching GIJoeClub.com for the latest updates and check out the image below.

Very cool behind the scenes look at Sideshow Collectibles

There are only fringes of these videos that deal directly with G.I. Joe, but any kind of “behind the scenes” perspective when it comes to toy making is pretty interesting.  These are no different.

The folks at Sideshow Collectibles were interviewed by Tested.com and a pair of very revealing videos were released showing those interviews.  A great look at pre-production design, and preparing something for production.  These two videos focus on the Premium Format figures specifically, so expect to see some Crimson Baroness cameos.  Check out the videos on SideshowToy.com or embedded below.
