COVERT COMPUTER SPECIALIST
Series: Five (1986)
Mainframe (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, Leatherneck 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."
Mainframe came with a black telephone, a gray backpack, a gray handheld computer, and a black hose.
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.
Birthplace: Phoenix, Arizona
Primary Specialty: Computer Technology

Versions of Mainframe
In 2008, Mainframe was renamed "Dataframe," and in 2011 he was renamed again as "Sgt. Mainframe." So while there are multiple names, they are all based on the character "Mainframe."
