Series: Twelve (1993)
Bullet-Proof (version 2) was released carded as part of the twelfth series (1993). The 1993 Battle Corps figures were numbered 1 through 36 - Bullet-Proof was number 34.
Bullet-Proof was intended to be part of the 1993 assortment of D.E.F. (Drug Elimination Force) subset. However, Hasbro decided not to release any D.E.F. toys in 1993 and instead repackaged them as Battle Corps toys.
He was discontinued domestically in 1994.
Bullet-Proof came with a green helmet, green rifle, green backpack, green missile launcher (spring loaded, actually fired), a green missile, and a black figure stand.
The helmet is extremely similar to the one included with the original Bullet-Proof. However, on the original, the helmet and mouthpiece were two separate pieces. This version's helmet and mouthpiece are glued together and are not separable.

Motto: "I don't believe in any magic charms. I'm just really careful and I practice shooting every day!"
BULLET-PROOF served as a field officer in Central America, the Golden Triangle, and the Caribbean before drawing the assignment to head G.I. Joe's urban Battle Corps detachment. His code name wasn't picked out of a hat. It was given to him by the very people he tracked down including Cobra criminals and private armies of Uzi-wielding thugs! In countless raids and all-out fire fights, they saw him leading his men right into the thick of the action and he never took a single hit. In amazement they said, "He must be bullet proof!"
