News from the G.I. Joe Collectors Club roundtable – FSS 4.0 and PYTHONA!

It was a whirlwind 60 minute panel this afternoon as the G.I. Joe Collectors Club revealed their assortment for FSS 4.0 as well as the 2016 Club Exclusive figure and vehicle/figure assortment.

Because of some confusion last time with artwork being misinterpreted as final figures, they did not reveal any artwork or mock ups, just the list of names.  The lineup is as follows:

  1. Barricade
  2. Billy (Cobra Commander’s son)
  3. Bullhorn
  4. Interrogator
  5. Law & Order
  6. Cobra Inferno B.A.T.
  7. Nunchuk
  8. Night Creeper (Ice Ninja)
  9. Pathfinder
  10. Jammer (Z-Force Communications)
  11. Tiger Force Sneak Peek (UK Repaint)
  12. Tiger Force Outback (UK Repaint)

Items of note are that Billy will be the adult version, and not the child, Law & Order will be based on their classic color scheme, the Inferno B.A.T. will be based on the v1 look (expect some translucent red).  Night Creeper is based on the ’98 repaint, while Jammer will be using the Convention exclusive Stalker head sculpt.

Tiger Force Outback will have a newly sculpted head as well as the UK deco while Sneak Peek was promised a newly tooled accessory!  The periscope, perhaps?

Along with the fourth FSS, the Collectors Club announced their 2016 Club Incentive offerings, including PYTHONA!!  A shocking development for sure, and one that had the fans standing in their seats.

Along with Pythona, the Club announced a Heartwrencher with 4-WD vehicle as their vehicle/figure incentive, too.  Heartwrencher was a Dreadnok created in the Devils Due universe who has never had her own action figure made before.

All in all, this sounds like an exceptionally solid line up for the fourth FSS and finally getting a Pythona figure as the incentive?  Truly astounding.  Kudos to the Club for ponying up and getting it done!
