MARAUDER DRIVER/MARAUDER HALF-TRACK DRIVER
Series: Six (1987)
Dodger 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 Knockdown 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 Dodger as having been released in 1988.
Dodger came with a silver "laser sonic photon rifle" and a silver microphone.
Birthplace: South Bend, Indiana
Primary Specialty: Armored Vehicle Maintenance
Secondary Specialty: Electronics Maintenance
Dodger came carded two different ways. In late 1987, he was available carded by himself. In 1988, Dodger and Knockdown were carded together in special two-packs.
Dodger's gun was done with two different types of handles (pictured above). The first version has thicker handles, the second version has thin handles. Neither version is more difficult to find than the other.
No variations of the figure itself are known to exist.
Dodger's body is completely original - all new body parts.
Dodger's entire body mold was re-used in 1990 to create Dodger (v2).
