Series: Five (1986)
Wet-Suit (version 2) 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, Mainframe 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."
Wet-Suit came with an orange sled, orange backpack, orange flashlight, a black mouthpiece, and two black flippers.
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.

The entire body of Wet-Suit (v2) was originally used to create Wet-Suit (1986). The same mold was used to create Wet-Suit (v5) (1998), Wet-Suit (v6) (2001), and Wet-Suit (v9) (2002).
The arms and waistpiece were later recolored and used to create Super Trooper and Rapid Fire. The waistpiece and legs were later recolored and used to create Shipwreck (v2) (1994), Shipwreck (v3) (1998), and Shipwreck (v4) (2002).
