IRON GRENADIER DRIVER
Series: Twenty Eight (2012)
Darklon (version 2) was released bagged in the Iron Grenadier Ground Assault two pack with Sergeant Major Duncan at the 2012 International G.I.Joe Convention (New Orleans, LA) from the Official G.I. Joe Collectors' Club.
Note that the Collector's Club did not have the full supply of the Iron Grenadier Ground Assault at the convention and, as a result, many sets were later mailed to the attendees afterwards.
Darklon came with black webgear, two gray rifles, a gold pistol, and a black display stand.
Primary Specialty: Mercenary
Secondary Specialty: Assault Vehicle Driver
Motto: "Get in my way and I'll squash you like a gnat on my windscreen!"
DARKLON is a distant cousin of the DESTRO clan and the last of a long line of privateers, mercenaries, and investment bankers. From his cast iron castle in the Alps, he dispatches his private armies to do battle for the highest bidder. He is completely unhindered by ideology or ethics, and is motivated purely by greed, a trait that makes him a perfect fit for his occasional employers, the IRON GRENADIERS.
DESTRO often clashes with DARKLON over his cousin's sarcastic attitude and his affinity for odd uniforms. With such a grating personality, he is only hired to test drive prototype vehicles or special missions that require his unparalleled driving skills. It is this expertise that will be needed to escape the Russian territory and bring DESTRO his captured prey.
No variations of Darklon (v2) are known to exist.
