The Power of Packaging: Psyche-Out
Yesterday’s post got me thinking again about 1987, and what a unique year it was for GI Joe figures. Some say that the Cobra strangeness represents a slide, but I find the year most intriguing in terms of the breadth of specialties and new designs covered. Psyche-Out was no doubt an odd figure to see back then, due to the subject matter as well as the toy itself. I didn’t waste much time in getting the figure, and I’m sure the package art helped sway my decision. It’s another that I think in some ways outshines the toy inside.
