Body Construction

Crankcase's body mold is entirely original and not made up from previous molds.

Crankcase's legs were later recolored and re-used to create Major Storm.

Starting with this series (Series Four, 1985), the head joint on G.I.Joe figures was changed into a head "ball." This ball allowed the head to look up and down, in addition to left and right.
