ROADBLOCK leads the G.I. JOE team in the fight against COBRA. Growing up on tough city streets, he was headed down the wrong path until SNAKE EYES saw his potential. After years of intensive ninja training and military experience, ROADBLOCK has developed the unique BATTLE-KATA fighting system that uses on-the-fly weapon switching and martial arts moves to take out attackers.
No variations of Roadblock (v21) are known to exist.
Roadblock (version 21) was created using all new molds. Note the non-removable handle molded into his right hand.
Versions of Roadblock
Note that Roadblock v8 has a file name of "Charles L. Griffith," making that figure a version of "Double Blast" (2001). However, the conventional wisdom is that this was simply an error on Hasbro's part, and that the figure is supposed to be the "Marvin F. Hinton" Roadblock of the other versions.
