"The point at which you win a battle is when you've convinced the enemy that he has lost. This can be accomplished through something as simple as constant repetition. For example, you can see a commercial on TV ten times a day for a particular brand of cookies. One day at the supermarket, you're overcome by a sudden craving for cookies. Confronted by an array of unknown brands, you choose the one that you saw advertised. They've won...And you've lost."
No variations of Psyche-Out (v1) are known to exist.
Psyche-Out's body is completely original - all new body parts.
His entire mold was re-painted and re-used to create the 1988 Night Force Psyche-Out (v2).
Note that the back of the head has a hole in it where the antenna fits.
In the United Kingdom and Europe, Psyche-Out was recolored and released as Tiger Force Psyche-Out.
