This is an all new character introduced to the GiJoe mythos in this set. Supposedly, he’s the member of the Oktober Guard who sold out and joined Destro’s Iron Grenadiers, as shown in the Convention comic.
I can’t say I like the sculpt of this figure. Seems a bit too young for a general. Supposedly, the sculpt is based off the likeness of Hasbro Toys’ Global Brand Manager VP, Derryl DePriest.
The team leader of the Oktober Guard, he’s appeared a few times in the cartoons. He was killed by Iron Grenadiers while on a rescue mission in the old Marvel Comics.
With Col. Red Star from the 25th Anniversary 2pack. After Brekhov was killed, Red Star was introduced in the Marvel comics as the new leader of Oktober Guard. Roadblock quickly mentioned that Red Star looks similar to Brekhov, to which Red Star says “it’s a long story for another time” but it isn’t explained further at any point in the comic’s run.
Uhhh… yeah I don’t see the resemblance… Roadblock must need glasses.
The Oktober Guard higher ups.
The strong, silent-type member of the team.
Heavy weapons specialist
Strangely, he comes with a knife sheathe on his gear, but I didn’t see any knife in the package…
Horror Show was always my favorite of the bunch in the old Sunbow GiJoe cartoons.
Aside from Dragonski (not included in this boxset), Daina is the only other surviving member of the Oktober Guard, the rest were all killed by the Iron Grenadiers in a botched rescue mission (Col. Brekhov, Schrage, Stormavik, Horror Show).
