No variations of Roadblock (v3) are known to exist.
In 1992 in China, Roadblock (version 3) was released carded in China under the name "Barricade."
Versions of Roadblock
Note that Roadblock (v8) has a file name of "Charles L. Griffith," making that figure a version of "Double Blast" (2001). However, the conventional wisdom is that this was simply an error on Hasbro's part, and that the figure is supposed to be the "Marvin F. Hinton" Roadblock of the other versions.
