The camouflage patterns on Recondo's legs were done in three different styles. One version has brown stripes in a particular pattern (pictured below), another version has dark green stripes in another pattern, and the third has bright green stripes.
The bright green stripes variation is more difficult to find than the others.
Recondo's body mold is entirely original and not made up from previous molds.
Recondo's entire mold was re-used in 1988 for the Tiger Force Recondo (v2).
Recondo's chest piece and waist piece was re-colored and re-used in some versions of Starduster.
Note that the figure's head only turns left and right - it does not allow the head to look up and down. The heads only turned left and right until the the swivel ball head that was introduced in 1985 (Series Four).
