LT. FALCON (v2)
Series: Eleven (1991)
Lt. Falcon (v2) was first released carded as part of the tenth series (1991) as part of the Super Sonic Fighters subset. He was discontinued domestically in 1992.
Lt. Falcon came with a blue sonic backpack that made four electronic battle sounds (it included three 357a button size batteries), black copter blades that attached to the backpack, a black assault rifle, a black laser rifle, and black display stand.
Grade: O-2 (1st Lt.)
Birthplace: Fayetteville, North Carolina
Primary Specialty: Infantry
Secondary Specialty: Medic
A second generation Special Forces trooper, LT. FALCON has snake easting and jumping out of airplanes in his blood. A qualified expert with all NATO and Soviet Bloc small arms, he can field strip, clean and reassemble most common military pistols, submachine guns and assault rifles in complete darkness and not wind up with leftover parts! Specially trained to maintain and modify all of the Sonic Fighters' innovative and highly advanced weapons systems, Lt. Falcon is also cross-trained in demolitions, medicine and languages (Spanish, French, Arabic and Swahili).
"Falcon knows that the only kind of respect that's worth having is the kind that's EARNED and not handed out with rank. When you go stepping out into bad-guy country with the Falcon, you can depend on him to pull his own weight and put his butt on the line when the 'worst possible scenario' becomes a bone-chilling reality. He leads by example, and to a grunt in the field, that's the best kind of leadership, bar none."
Assigned Armaments: 5.56MM XAR2 Automatic Assault Rifle, and "Scatter Blast" laser rifle with laser tracking sensors.
*Lieutenant Falcon's security number has been specially modified to prevent breaches in G.I. Joe Security.
No variations of Lt. Falcon (v2) are known to exist.
Versions of Falcon
In 1988, Falcon became renamed "Lt. Falcon," and in 2011 he was named back to "Falcon." So while there are different names, they are all based on the character "Falcon."
