Series: Twenty Three (2007)
Duke (v23) was released in G.I. Joe Battle Pack #1, a five pack which also includes Snake Eyes, Scarlett, Roadblock, and Gung Ho to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. The set also included a G.I. Joe Logo music box.
Duke (version twenty-three) was later released with the fourth wave of single packs celebrating the 25th Anniversary of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero.
Duke (v23) came with a black rifle, a black pistol, a green helmet, a green bandolier, a black display stand, and black binoculars.
Carded Duke (v23)s came with this backpack instead of the binoculars.
Grade: E-8 (Master Sergeant)
Birthplace: St. Louis, Missouri
Primary Specialty: Airborne Infantryman
Secondary Specialty: Artillery, Small-arms armorer
The Battle Set box has two different plastic insert versions, resulting in different poses of the figure in box.
Duke was later released carded, either emphasizing the 25th Anniversary of G.I. Joe, or the G.I. Joe cartoon. Carded Dukes included a backpack accessory instead of binoculars.
Early figures had no backpack hole. Later figures (starting around the time of Wave 3's release) added this.
Duke (version twenty-three) was created using all new molds. The feet are shared with Cobra (v2) (2007).
