This special version of Budo was available carded in India in 1995. G.I.Joe toys in India were produced by the Funskool toy company.
Budo came with a silver helmet, a silver sword, a red sword, a silver sai, and a brown backpack. The red sword could attach to a hook on Budo's waist.
Unlike the U.S. version, Budo's helmet did not have a red band on it - the entire helmet is silver.
The figure is made from the exact same mold of the U.S. release of Budo (1988).
However, the pants on the Indian version of Budo is much lighter than the U.S. version.
In addition, the Indian plastic used is of a lower quality.
