Kurt was the kid who could hold his breath the longest. He was also the kid who had the largest collection of plastic dinosaurs on the block. He was a weird kid who grew up to be an even stranger adult. It takes a mighty weird person to walk into a cloud of toxic gas strong enough to fell a mutant weight-lifter cockroach wearing a protective suit built under contract for the government by the lowest bidder.

"Airtight is an unreformed practical joker; sneezing powder, plastic barf, whoopee cushion - the whole bit!! No prank is too low for him. You'd think that other Joes would hate his guts, but they don't. Because when the bad guys escalate the fire fight and start playing dirty, it's old Airtight who suits-up and wades into the thick of it."


No variations of Airtight (v1) are known to exist.

Featured In

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

Body Construction

Airtight's body is completely original - all new body parts. None of his parts were ever used in other figures.

Starting with this series (Series Four, 1985), the head joint on G.I.Joe figures was changed into a head "ball." This ball allowed the head to look up and down, in addition to left and right.

In Brazil, Airtight was recolored in Tiger Force colors and released as Tigre Anti-Radiacao: Ar Puro.
