AGENT SCARLETT (v1)
Agent Scarlett came with a black Sound Attack crossbow with bow and bolt, a black backpack and a black rifle. The backpack/screw hole for Agent Scarlett is too short and does not allow for her backpack to fit. For this reason, some collectors may include the backpack with Zartan (v4).
The packaging also included a color background.
Birthplace: Atlanta, Georgia

The U.S. military relies on special agents to gather information about the plans of its enemies. These agents put their lives on the line to find and bring back this important knowledge. One of these agents is AGENT SCARLETT. She started her counterintelligence work by analyzing evidence, setting up surveillance equipment and preparing reports. After she proved her abilities in small missions, she began to conduct full operations. Much of her job is finding and verifying information, but that's dangerous work when you're dealing with sources that are part of the evil COBRA organization. On one secret operation, she encountered ZARTAN, a master of disguises who jeopardized the mission by impersonating a GI JOE team member. Now AGENT SCARLETT vows to unmask ZARTAN so that he can never enganger anyone again.
"People ask me what it takes to be a good agent. I say: integrity, courage, and intelligence."
Three versions of Agent Scarlett exist. The earliest released version has a waistline on the torso that does not fit smoothly into the waist. The second and third have the waist shown, with a different paint mask on the underside of the torso where the o-ring enters the torso. The second one has the green stripes go all the way to the hole in the base of the torso, and the third has them stop about 1/4 of an inch from the hole. This third version is the most common, while the first version is the rarest.
Agent Scarlett has an entirely new body sculpt. This mold was used to make Agent Scarlett (v2) (2002).
Additional points of articulation were added to several new 2002 figures. Agent Scarlett has a swivel in her left thigh just above the knee. Additionally her left knee has an external rivet rather than an internal pin like her right leg. Note the return of the O-ring design absent from earlier new figures from 2002.
Versions of Scarlett
In 2002, Scarlett was renamed "Agent Scarlett," renamed Scarlett in 2004, and went back to Agent Scarlett for a 2005 release. So while there are multiple names, they are all based on the character "Scarlett."
