Motto: "The G.I. JOE team? Merely the inferior American counterpart to the OKTOBER GUARD."
COLONEL BREKHOV is a tough, cigar-chomping veteran with a no-nonsense, no apologies style. He is the distinguished battlefield officer of the OKTOBER GUARD team. He genuinely cares about the welfare of his country and its people, and he feels that the best way he can serve them is to be the best soldier possible.
COLONEL BREKHOV is what some would call an 'old war horse' because the military is all he knows. He is a superb strategist and is fearless in battle. His tactical mind is not above setting aside political differences to overcome any threat posed against his team, because in the Russian approach to combat, there are no rules. He often uses the Dnepr (motorcycle) to spearhead assaults against enemy forces.
Colonel Brekhov (v3) was available both boxed and bagged.
The reissued box set came with a different certificate of authenticity, and the tacks on the pin are set higher.
