The survival instincts of Sgt. Stalker were honed at an early age on the mean streets of his home town, a fact which gives him a distinctive edge over those who first received their combat training in their late teens under less demanding circumstances. He's no posed; He doesn't just walk the walk and talk the talk. He's the real thing, and he's taking names. Ranger trained and Airborne qualified, Sgt. Stalker has gone through some of the toughest programs the Army can offer. He is resilient and resourceful, capable of adapting to changing situations and not hidebound by standard procedures. He knows through experience that no battle plan survives the first shot and that the soldier who thinks the fastest on his feet is the one who will win the day.
"So FIREFLY got himself some new genes; What's the big deal? I could kick his butt before he got them, and I can kick his butt now."
Many consistent, though small, changes with each release of Sgt. Stalker exist. Early single carded figures had a slightly different shade of yellow than the original two-pack figure. Later Valor vs Venom single carded figures had a new shade of yellow, darker green pants, and a slighly different flesh tone. 2008 Single carded figures had additional shade differences such as the yellow forearms which were different than any previous release.
Sgt. Stalker (v4) has an entirely new body sculpt.
Versions of Stalker
In 2002, Stalker was renamed "Sgt. Stalker." So while there are several names, they are all based on the character "Stalker."
In 2006, a Lonzo R. Wilkinson figure was released, showing Stalker from his years prior to G.I.Joe.
