Series: Five (1986)
Leatherneck (v2) was released as part of the fifth series (1986) in the Toys R Us exclusive Special Mission Brazil boxed set. The boxed set included Claymore, Dial-Tone v2, Mainframe v2, Wet Suit v2, and a cassette tape.
The tape tells the adventures of Claymore, Dialtone, Mainframe, WetSuit, and Leatherneck in their mission to Brazil, and is dated 1986. Its quality is mediocre - the voices, dialogue, sound effects, and story are laughably poor. The second side of the tape is blank so "you can record your own adventures."
Leatherneck came with a gray rifle and a green backpack.
Also pictured is the bag of accessories that came with the Special Mission: Brazil set. It includes accessories for all five figures. Originally, these weapons would be extremely difficult to find. However, in later years, a toy dealer purchased Hasbro's left-over stock and made them available to toy collectors.
