Destro came with two black submachine guns, a black walkie talkie, and a black backpack.
The packaging also included a color background.
Birthplace: Callander, Scotland
Primary Specialty: Weapons Manufacturer
Secondary Specialty: Terrorist
Motto: "Some people call me corrupt. To me, I'm just a businessman supplying what people want."
The very earliest carded Destros had slight packaging differences. Among them - the text on the back of the card described Cobra as a "terrorist" organization, and the figures were posed to have the heads looking at each other.
Later carded figures had no mention of the word "terrorist," the figure heads looked out and not at each other, and the packaging included the 2002 figure catalog.
These later packagings also included a new color background that no longer had the white "explosions" around the figure. The filecard for Destro was also changed by removing the text "The name James McCullen Destro does not apply to any known, living person," and adding the text "Characters and events referenced herein are fictional and are not intended to depict actual characters and events." The text of the body of the filecard was also changed.
Destro (version 7) has an entirely new body sculpt. The same mold was used to create Destro (v8) (2002) and Destro (v9) (2002).
Note the changes made from previous versions of 3 3/4" figures - including new waist construction.
Versions of Destro
In 2009, Hasbro released a figure named "James McCullen XXIV," the actual name of the "Destro" identity.
