Packaging Information

Filecard Information

File Name: LaFitte, Ettiene R.
SN: 656-2456-ER89
Grade: E-7 (Sergeant)
Primary Specialty: Reconnaissance
Secondary Specialty: Heavy Weapons
Motto: "I like things hot: my food and my missions! Send me where it's meanest - that's why I'm a Marine!"


The very earliest carded Gung-Ho figures had slight packaging differences. Among them - the text on the back of the card described Cobra as a "terrorist" organization, and the figures were posed to have the heads looking at each other.

Later carded figures had no mention of the word "terrorist," the figure heads looked out and not at each other, and the packaging included the 2002 figure catalog.

These later packagings also included a new color background that no longer had the white "explosions" around the figure. The filecard for Gung-Ho was also changed by removing the text "The name Etienne R. LaFitte does not apply to any known, living person," and adding the text "Characters and events referenced herein are fictional and are not intended to depict actual characters and events." The character's name was also changed from "Gung-Ho" to "Gung Ho" on the later card.

Body Construction

The mold was re-used to create Gung Ho (v9) (2002), Gung Ho (v10) (2002) and Gung Ho (v12) (2004).

Note the changes made from previous versions of 3 3/4" figures - including new waist construction.
