See variations below.
DESTRO has built up his army of IRON GRENADIER troopers from among his bodyguards. Chosen for their endurance, tenacity and pure meanness, IRON GRENADIER troopers are part of the weapon supplier's plans to take control of the COBRA organization. The IRON GRENADIER force has been trained to infiltrate an area and spread panic and chaos, resulting in an increased demand for weapons - supplied by DESTRO, of course. An IRON GRENADIER trooper is like an obnoxious salesman with guns. In fact, he gets a commission on any armaments sold because of his efforts, and receives incentive points for starting riots and encouraging armed revolts.
"We have no hearts, we have no fears, we'll sell you guns, we'll sell you spears... We are the IRON GRENADIERS!" (part of the IRON GRENADIER marching song)
Iron Grenadier was carded in Comic Pack #7 with Destro (v19a) or Destro (v19b).
The Comic Pack #7 release of Iron Grenadier had thicker, glossier red paint on the helmet.
Additionally, instead of the red pistol, the Comic Pack #86 release of Iron Grenadier came with a black one.
The 50th Anniversary release came with a different display stand.
Iron Grenadier (version 6) was created using the body of Cobra Commander (v28) (2008) with a new head and lower legs.
