Motto: "I've got my eye on you-a Bull's Eye that is!"
METAL-HEAD is a walking anti-tank weapon! He can launch high-explosive rockets and guide them to their objectives on a laser beam, without the use of trigger devices. Instead, he uses a voice activeated wapons' command system made up of circuits and targeting computer modules built into various components of his blast suit. All he has to do is make visual contact with the target, let the coputer "read" the range, plot the trajectory, wait for the green light to flash, the yell "bang" to complete the firing sequence.
METAL-HEAD carries an ultra-portable Multiple Rocket Launcher (MRL) system strapped to a special backpack. He fires these precision-guided munitions (PGM) by vocal command and always hits his targets with devastating effect. Although he has a reputation for being undisciplined, he follows the orders of GENERAL MAYHEM without question. This is not out of obedience or fear; he just knows he gets to blow everythgin he wants into smithereens.
No variations of Metal-Head (v4) are known to exist.
Metal-Head (version 4) was created using the torso and waist of G.I. Joe Trooper (v2a) (2012) and G.I. Joe Trooper (v2b) (2012), the arms of Snake Eyes (v56) (2011), the legs of Jungle Viper (v3) (2010), and a new head.
