Series: Eleven (1992)
Bullet-Proof was released carded as part of the eleventh series (1992) as part of the Drug Elimination Force (D.E.F.) subset. He was discontinued domestically in 1993.
Bullet-Proof came with a green helmet, a removable green microphone (that attached to the helmet), a green assault rifle, a green backpack, a green Electronic Battle-Flash Missile Launcher (spring loaded, that actually fired), a green missile, and a black figure stand.
The Electronic Battle-Flash Missile Launcher not only was spring loaded, but it also included a small light inside. When the missile was fired, it would light up.
In 1993, the same backpack, rifle, and missile - along with a missile launcher (minus Battle Flash) and the helmet and mouthpiece molded together were available with Bullet-Proof (v2).

"I don't believe in any magic charms. I'm just really careful and I practice shooting every day!"
BULLET-PROOF served in Central America, the Golden Triangle, and the Caribbean as a field officer of the Drug Enforcement Agency before drawing the assignment to head G.I. Joe's D.E.F. detachment. His code name wasn't picked out of a hat. It was given to him by the very people he tracked down - the world's drug leaders and their private armies of Uzi-wielding thugs! In countless raids and all-out fire fights they saw him leading his men into the thick of the action and he never took a single hit. They said, "He must be bullet proof!"
No variations of Bullet-Proof (v1) are known to exist.
Bullet-Proof's body is entirely original - no parts were taken from other figures.
Bullet-Proof's entire mold was re-used in 1993 to create Bullet-Proof (v2).
In Brazil in 1995, the mold of Bullet-Proof was used to create Tiro Certo.
