Tonight is the deadline and we wanted to answer club member requests to see the heads under the helmets for our FSS 4.0 club exclusive: Barricade and Interrogator modern era action figures. As we posted previously, these required the use of existing head tools with a unique coloration to match their vintage counterparts. Check out the previews below...

1267
G.I. JOE BUNKER BUSTER --- Code Name: BARRICADE

1268
COBRA INFORMATION EXTRACTOR --- Code Name: INTERROGATOR

Don't miss out on ordering your FSS 4.0 subscription tonight (7/15) at midnight (Eastern time)!

That is an unfortunate head to use on Interrogator. Conversely, nice re-use of the Chuckles head.

Agreed. I can always pull a different head for Interrogator, I suppose.

You know, I always thought the vintage Barricade head looked like the Dusty head, with its parting and all. They should have used a blacked out Dusty for Barricade, and the Chuckles re-do for Bullhorn.

It's cool the club is showing this stuff, but it is kind of taking the fun and mystery out finding out whats under the helmet when I have the figures in hand.

Perhaps, but for some it might be the difference between ordering and not. At least, I suspect that's what the club is counting on.

Please note that when you have helmets, not all heads will fit inside....

Great choice for Barricade's head! The Interrogator head is nice on it's own, but I'm not digging it for him.

The re-use of Chuckles head might have me displaying him without the helmet on. I like it!

Out of idle curiosity-- was any consideration given to trying to adapt the GvC era head? Or is the scale just not the right fit?

Never thought of the chuckles head for bullhorn, that'd almost work perfectly, as would the dusty head for barricade. Maybe the dusty head wouldn't fit the helmet?

That Dusty head will fit most anything. The Chuckles head is a little bigger. I used that helmet for a Salvo and managed to fit both Serpentor and Dwayne Jonhson's Roadblock head in that thing. I think the comic from on high refers to an unmasked head for Interrogator, since that helmet was pulled from an 0-ring style figure, wherein the heads overall are much smaller.

The Barricade looks really good. Interrogator is OK. I like the traditional Interrogator helmet so I'm cool with it not being a top choice pick for the head underneath.
Barricade is a bit on the silly side and probably my least favourite of this wave but I understand the reasons for including him, so giving him a really good head under the helmet is a good idea.

You can't "adapt" heads. You would have to make a whole new tool (mold) which would not make financial sense for s head that has a helmet.

I collect my joes carded so a head inside the helmet makes no difference to me.
