ROAD PIG (v2)
Series: Ten (1991)
Road Pig (version 2) was released carded as part of the tenth series (1991) as part of the Super Sonic Fighters subset. He was discontinued domestically in 1992.
Road Pig came with an orange machine gun, an orange double-barreled flamethrower, orange shoulder pads, and a green sonic backpack that made four electronic battle sounds (it included three 357a button size batteries), and a black figure stand.
Birthplace: Goblu, Michigan
The only Dreadnok to have ever gone through a probationary period, ROAD PIG is extremely obnoxious even by Dreadnok standards. This guy pushes the needle to red on the evil meter. I mean, we're talking low on the food chain and high on the nasty list. No one knows for sure how Road Pig obtained his inner-cooled incendiary burst flamethrower, and .45in XM1919A10 fully automatic blowback machine gun. Suffice to say, the guy he "borrowed" them from isn't around to talk about it anymore.
"Gross. You could say that. Road Pig doesn't drink orange soda and eat nutritious and yummy chocolate covered donuts like the other Dreadnoks. He subsists entirely on a diet of barbecue-flavored fried pork rinds, fast food burritos, frozen corn dogs and stale baseball card bubble gum. Once a year, when he brushes his teeth, he has to use industrial tub cleaner instead of toothpaste."
No variations of Road Pig (v2) are known to exist.
Road Pig's entire body was originally used to create the original Road Pig (1988).
