First and foremost, this video is NSFW and NS for a younger audience, but it’s pretty funny regardless. One of the most common ongoing jokes in G.I. Joe spoofs is “what if G.I. Joe were actually super violent like real war!!?!” but nonetheless, this Robot Chicken skit is still pretty hilarious.

A good way to start the week! The G.I. Joe Collectors Club has revealed a first look at the FSS 3.0 Muskrat. Using the same parts recipe as the Night Force version, but in more traditional colors, we’re also getting some nice accessory adjustments here, even including a brand new swamp skimmer!
Muskrat was one of my favorite figures with the Nocturnal Fire set, I’m psyched to see him here in the same colors as the ’88 version. Well done, Club! Check out GIJoeClub.com for the latest and greatest FSS news, and I’ve mirrored the image below.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I LOVE that swamp skimmer! Looks like a nice, brand spanking new update to the original, complete with a handle to go with the foot peg. Really awesome.

Obviously not wanting the reveal of the G.I. Joe 50th Anniversary figures to steal all the thunder, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club has given us our first FSS 3.0 reveal!
Spearhead and Max in their original 1988 color scheme! This is a Photoshop mock up, so final colors may change, but it’s a good idea of what we’re looking to get when the next FSS kicks off.

Hot of the heels of an especially great Convention exclusive set, we now have an equally great membership incentive figure! Available carded at the Convention itself (and through the Club store), the free membership figure started arriving last week.
Well, I got mine, and you can check out the review at the G.I. Joe Collectors Club Review page, or also linked below.

It’s been a bit of a break since we posted our last episode, and it seems like the world of G.I. Joe has turned inside out and backwards since then. Excitement about Toy Fair blitzed the online community, only to be defused by the rumor that Hasbro will not be in attendance at JoeCon, and an underlying uncertainty about the future of our favorite brand. We also had a chat with none other than BJ Ward, the voice of Scarlett from the Sunbow animated series!
Well, to celebrate the sure fire collapse of all toy related patriotism, Gary took a strike from the show and is absent from Episode 90. Actually, Chuck is, too, but we figured that was more due to laziness.
However, Mike and Justin called in the reserves as Dave from Toy World Order and the immortal Erik Arana from Boss Fight Studio joined us on the program! Check out the latest episode on Podbean or embedded below, and hit up the Show Notes after the jump.

As I was driving down to New Jersey this weekend, my phone started buzzing, indicating some serious social media activity going on. Obviously waiting until I was in a safe place to stop, I checked out what all the hub bub was about and discovered that indeed, big G.I. Joe news had broken on the weekend, and it was a weekend that I wasn’t going to be near a computer.
So along with the last two figures of FSS 2.0 (two excellent figures, which have been unfortunately overshadowed by the drama surrounding figure #13) lucky recipients also got their hands on the mysterious “thirteenth figure”. And like every other G.I. Joe fan on the Internet, I will push aside Dragonsky and Big Bear, and focus my crosshairs on #13. However, I will do so after the jump so as not to reveal any spoilers.
