Featured In

Cobra Stinger Driver was featured in several of the various media of GI Joe through the years, including Trading Cards, Comic Books, Cartoons and Commercials.

Body Construction

Cobra Stinger Driver's entire body was from the same exact mold as the swivel-arm version of Cobra Officer. The mold was later used for Python Trooper from the eighth series (1989).

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).

Versions of Stinger Driver

In 2007, the Stinger Driver was renamed "Vehicle Driver." So while there are different names, they are all based on this Cobra specialty.
