These IRON GRENADIER officers are handpicked to be DESTRO's personal bodyguards. They are always no further than a caber toss away from their leader at all times. In battle, their higher military acumen and desire to control others is used to command squads of IRON GRENADIER troopers. They coordinate destruction to simulate any type of potential attack DESTRO wants his customers to fear - and then make them pay through the nose to defend against it.
IRON GRENADIER officers spearhead incursions into new territory. They act as agents provocateurs, saboteurs, or outright terrorists. Their goal is to impel an unsuspecting country towards chaos and turmoil, thereby creating new markets for M.A.R.S. (Military Armaments Research Systems) weaponry where none existed before. They maintain this tenacious behavior because their pay is a percentage of gross sales.
Iron Grenadier (v11) 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.
