Motto: "You keep telling me that my ma-deuce is not a hand-held weapon, and I keep saying, maybe not for your hands."
The earliest release of Roadblock had a shorter neck (left) than the later release (right).
Versions of Roadblock
Note that Roadblock (v8) has a file name of "Charles L. Griffith," making that figure a version of "Double Blast" (2001). However, the conventional wisdom is that this was simply an error on Hasbro's part, and that the figure is supposed to be the "Marvin F. Hinton" Roadblock of the other versions.
