CRIMSON GUARD IMMORTALS are fanatical super soldiers who swear a fearsome oath of absolute obedience to Cobra Commander. Advanced weapons' systems marksmen and martial arts experts, they are the most formidable fighters in the Cobra Legions. A "Siegie" (CG), when not serving as a personal bodyguard to the Head Snake, is involved in covert operations around the country under deep cover, assuming an apparently normal occupation and frequently running for public office.
"The Immortals are lawyers or accountants who pump iron, wear body armor and carry big guns. What they can't get by stomping and shooting, they'll get by suing and auditing."
No variations of Crimson Guard Immortal (v1) are known to exist.
Crimson Guard Immortal's body is entirely original - no parts were taken from other figures.
The head of the Crimson Guard Immortal was later used in 1993 to create the Name Your Own Cobra figure.
The entire mold of the Crimson Guard Immortal was later used in 2003 to create the Crimson Guard Immortal (v2).
Crimson Guard Immortal was available in the United Kingdom and Europe. A small number of variant Crimson Guard Immortals were available with a re-colored Rock Viper head instead of the normal head.
In India in 2000, Funskool released a Crimson Guard Immortal with slight paint differences and differently colored accessories.
