Lol.. so there’s no confusion who he is.
The set comes with a really cool-looking night vision headgear setup for Tunnel Rat.

For more stopping power, Tunnel Rat comes with his heavy machine gun, complete with night vision scope.
Removable ammo box for the heavy machine gun.
The machine gun has deployable front bi-pods to help steady the shooter’s aim.
Lastly, in case you never heard about it, Tunnel Rat’s facial sculpt is based off of legendary G.i. Joe comic creator Larry Hama (from when he was younger).
Overall, I love it! Hasbro did this fella right! Almost everything on the figure itself is made from new tooling, the little details like the shoulder tampo are cool. His accessories are very nice nods to the vintage toy and everything comes together very, very nicely. One of the best figures to come out in the line for the Joe team for sure!
Hasbro’s oddball codename for Tunnel Rat is Dickens.
