Series: Six (1987)
Blocker was first released carded invidually as part of the Battleforce 2000 subset of G.I.Joe at the very end of the sixth series (1987). In 1988 he was available carded in a special two-pack with Maverick and was discontinued the following year.
Even if they are not listed in the 1987 catalog, the Battleforce 2000 figures are considered part of the 1987 series since they made it to toy shelves in the 1987 calendar year. Be aware that some toy listings will list Blocker as having been released in 1988.
Blocker came with a silver pistol.
Some versions of Blocker included a visor that was very difficult to remove [SEE VARIATIONS BELOW].
Grade: E-5 (Sergeant)
Birthplace: Boston, Massachusetts
Primary Specialty: Mechanized Recon

Blocker came carded two different ways. In late 1987, he was available carded by himself. In 1988, Blocker and Maverick were carded together in special two-packs.
As for the figure itself, there are two versions of Blocker. A second version of Blocker with a visor was also available. The version with the visor also has a red inner left arm. The visored Blocker is somewhat more difficult to find than the one without the visor.
Blocker's body is completely original - all new body parts.
