Filecard Information

File Name: Kibbey, Alvin R.
SN: RA 757-79-3518
Grade: E-5
Birthplace: Gatlinburg, Tennessee
Primary Specialty: Infantry
Secondary Specialty: Computer Technology
Motto: "You get me into the action, I'll get us out."

Breaker established himself as the G.I. Joe team's first communications expert. He is the link between the battlefield and headquarters. Manning the radio may seem like an easy job for some, but it's as crucial to operations as ammunition is to any weapon. Without the radioman, you lose the ability to call in an air strike, provide artillery coordinates, request a Medivac or find the extraction site. The key is to treat the equipment like a crystal vase. Breaker never takes it off, and constantly monitors all the frequencies, providing situation reports to the command center. His ability to crack enemy codes and to jam their transmissions keeps the team one step ahead. Along with his specialized education, he speaks seven languages. During this time, he began to study computer technology. Knowing that modern battlefield operations had become coordinated, he qualified with the latest hardware. As soon as he received word that the original team was re-organizing, he was ready to return and use his new area of expertise to its full advantage.

After the Team's first encounter with COBRA Forces, they found a suitable location and in the tradition of the men and women who served their country before them, raised the flag in their honor, and declared - STARS and STRIPES FOREVER!

From General Hawk's File: "Breaker is efficient and self-assured. He has the uncanny ability to turn adverse situations to his favor. His one annoying trait is the constant need to chew gum and pop bubbles with it. The team often wonders which is more sticky, his beard, or the situations that he seems to always get out of."

Variations

No variations of Breaker (v2) are known to exist.

Body Construction

Breaker (v2)'s head and legs are repaints of the 1986 Hawk (version 2), the arms are repaints of the 1983 Gung-Ho (version 1), and the torso and waist are repaints of the 1986 Roadblock (version 2).

Versions of Breaker

In 2008 Breaker was renamed "Cpl. Breaker." So while there are several names, they are all based on the character "Breaker." Note that while some Breakers have a file name of Alvin Kibbey and some have a file name of Abel Shaz, all seemed to be based on the same character.
