Series: Twenty One (2005)
Firefly was released as part of the twenty-first series (2005), as part of the Toys R Us exclusive Crimson Guard Force set.
Two different versions of the set were available, one featuring Tomax (v5) and the other featuring Xamot (v5). Both sets also included four Crimson Guard (v6) figures along with Firefly (v13).
Firefly came with a black submachine gun, a black walkie-talkie, a black backpack, a black backpack cover, and a black battle stand.
FIREFLY has forgotten more about explosives and detonating devices than most so-called experts have ever known. He is also a world-class long-range rifleman and an expert in the field of close-range combat with pistol and submachine gun. FIREFLY had a high enough degree of skill in martial arts to infiltrate the same ninja clan that produced STORM SHADOW and SNAKE EYES. All of these are merely physical skills. What makes FIREFLY especially dangerous is his shrewd tactical mind combined with absolute ruthlessness. Recently captured COBRA documents indicate that FIREFLY is an active participant in their top-secret Venom program and has allowed DR. MINDBENDER to test new batches of the Venom serum on him. If true, the COBRA saboteur is now twice as deadly as he was before.
No variations of Firefly (v13) are known to exist.
Firefly (v13) was created from the same body as the original Firefly (1984). The mold was also used to create Firefly (v4) (1998), Firefly (v5) (2000), Firefly (v7) (2002), Wreckage (2003), Firefly (v8) (2003), Firefly (v9) (2003), and Firefly (v11) (2004). The body was also used to create Firefly (v12) (2005).
