Series: Four (1985)
Tripwire (version 2), also known as Listen N Fun Tripwire, was released as part of the fourth series (1985) packaged exclusively with a "Listen n Fun" audio tape, The Cobra's Revenge.
At some point, the Listen N Fun Tripwire was available bagged - either pre-production or left-over stock.
Listen n Fun Tripwire did not come with a traditional filecard. However, there was a small yellow filecard-like description on the front of the card.
Tripwire came with a gray mine detector, three gray mines, and a gray backpack that held the mines.
Listen n Fun Tripwire also came with a Listen n Fun cassette tape.
Tripwire's proficient with all NATO and Warsaw Pact explosives, detonators, and blasting machines.
No variations of Tripwire (v2) are known to exist.
Tripwire's body was created using the exact same mold as the original Tripwire (1983). The mold was later used to create Tiger Force Tripwire (v3) (1988) and Tripwire (v4) (2001).
Note that the head only turns left and right, because the original mold was made in 1983 before the implementation of the swiveling "ball" head that allowed heads to look up and down in addition to left and right.
