Accessories

T.A.R.G.A.T. came with a purple face shield, a red missile launcher (spring loaded, actually fired), two pink missiles, a pink rifle, a pink submachine gun, a pink pistol, and a pink figure stand.

Except for the face shield and missile launcher, all of T.A.R.G.A.T.'s accessories came attached to one plastic "tree." The accessories were removed from the tree.

Filecard Information

Motto: "If you think sky diving to Earth from a plane is dangerous, try doing it from a Cobra Invader orbiting the moon!"

These terror troopers are deployed into orbit from Cobra Invaders wearing specialized, self-contained space suits. The suits contain ceramic composite heat shielding armor that provides coolant safety during atmospheric re-entry. When two or three of them return to Earth at the same time, they are often mistaken for a meteor shower - until they start shooting like typical Cobra terrorists! They are considered to be formidable battle opponents with exceptional firepower capabilities, so next time you see a meteor shower, it might be a good idea to stand beside a G.I. Joe...just in case.
