Body Construction

Sgt Slaughter's body is completely original - all new body parts.

Sgt Slaughter's head, chest, and arms were re-used to create Sgt Slaughter (v2) (1986). The entire body and mold were re-used to create Slaughters Marauders Sgt. Slaughter (v4) (1989).

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.
