Featured In

The VAMP Mark II was featured in several of the various media of GI Joe through the years, including Trading Cards, Comic Books, Cartoons and Commercials.

Variations

The mail-in version of the Vamp Mark II was different than the original retail version. The mail-in version was made of a lighter brown plastic, it included gas cans instead of water cans, and had other small color differences. This mail-in version was also molded in Brazil.

Additionally, when Hasbro released the Tiger Sting and the mail-away Vamp Mk II four years later, they made some changes to the parts that attached to the body. The roof panel is slightly different and the missile launcher box was revised to add two vertical stems on the non-vent side of the missile box. Thus, they altered the blueprints and instructions to indicate the vent side of the assembled missile box facing upwards. Because the mail-away version of the Vamp Mk II uses the '89 Tiger Sting body and parts molds, we have chosen to build and photograph the mail-away version the same as the Tiger Sting instructions.

International Releases

In Brazil in 1985, the VAMP Mark II was released in Brazil as the Blindado De Assalto.
