JET PACK TROOPER
Series: Four (1987)
This version of Starduster, began shipping in late 1985 and probably stopped shipping around approximately 1988. Starduster's initial release, was tied in directly with the G.I. Joe Action Stars breakfast cereal (by Ralston) and the toy tie-in marketing promotion. He would later be available, later, through other Hasbro Direct mail-in offers.
This version of Starduster came with a silver grenade launcher, a light blue helmet with a black star painted on top, a black visor, and a green jetpack.
The same grenade launcher, helmet, and visor were available with all versions of Starduster. The jetpack is the same as the one released in 1982 and 1983 as the JUMP Jet Pack.
A black recolored version of the grenade launcher was earlier available with Gung-Ho and the 1997 Gung-Ho (v6). Beware of these accessories as they are not the original accessories that came with this version of Starduster.
No variations of Starduster (v1A) are known to exist.
