Unproduced : Tiger Force



The original Tiger Force assortment shown to the public in 1988 was made of seven members: Duke, Dusty, Lifeline, Recondo, Rip Cord, Wild Bill, and an all-new figure, Sabretooth (a repainted Firefly). However, before they were released, Recondo replaced Wild Bill as the helicopter pilot, and Wild Bill, Rip Cord, and Sabretooth were replaced by Tripwire, Flint, and Bazooka. Tiger Force versions of Wild Bill, Rip Cord and Sabretooth were never produced. Still, there are remnants of G.I.Joe history left by the unproduced two unproduced Tiger Force figures - Rip Cord and Sabretooth.

Pictured above is an advertisement from a toy advertisement in 1988. On the left in the foreground is Sabretooth. Then from left to right are Recondo, Dusty, Duke, Rip Cord, and Lifeline.

Also of note is the Collectors Guide that was available mail-order from Hasbro Direct in 1993. It lists the unproduced Sabretooth, Rip Cord, and Wild Bill as members of Tiger Force. In addition, in Europe, Recondo was renamed and released anyway as Wild Bill.
