Series: Eleven (1992)
Stalker (v3) was released carded as part of the eleventh series (1992) as part of the Talking Battle Commanders. He was discontinued domestically in 1993.
Stalker came with a black rifle, a black laser pistol, and a black figure stand.
The yellow backpack was permanently attached to the back of the figure and could not be removed (except with a screwdriver, see BODY CONSTRUCTION below). The backpack had 3 buttons that would play battle commands : Let's Party!, Attack!, and Blitz 'em!. The fourth button played an electronic combat sound. The backpack ran on three A-76 button size batteries - included with the figure.
Birthplace: Detroit, Michigan
Primary Specialty: Infantry
Secondary Specialty: Medic/Interpreter
No variations of Stalker (v3) are known to exist.
Stalker's body is entirely original - no parts were taken from other figures. The mold was later re-used to create Sgt. Stalker (v3) (2003).
Note that the backpack is not easily removable. To remove the backpack, the backpack needs to be opened by unscrewing the four visible screws. Once the backpack is opened, inside are three long screws that attach the backpack to the figure.
Versions of Stalker
In 2002, Stalker was renamed "Sgt. Stalker." So while there are several names, they are all based on the character "Stalker."
In 2006, a Lonzo R. Wilkinson figure was released, showing Stalker from his years prior to G.I.Joe.
