    Nothing mainstream was ever produced that I'm aware of, but a collector, and I believe it was Firemarshallbill on the MM site here made some custom ones a few years ago, possibly for the 50th anniversary. This was over on the Trenches and with their database issues, all of that info is now gone.

    This (and a couple others, also with unique names like "Ace") was simply the prototype figure produced by Hasbro, a mock up to sell the idea of GI Joe. It was never mass produced.

    hey thanks for the info guys ,the mystery deepens as a guy i know showed me this odd 12 inch figure and it bears more than a passing resemblance to rocky

    hes on a odd type gi joe clone body ,which looks vaguely feminine to my eye







    anyone recognize him
