"I still grease my hair with motor oil, but I'm not half as shiny as those Mega-Monsters!"
CLUTCH has worked as a mechanic for some of the top drivers on the professional racing circuit. After he helped win the Indy 500, DUKE recruited him as chief vehicle technician in charge of the G.I. Joe motor pool. Clutch accepted Duke's offer because he knew it was both an honor and a challenge. Having worked in a close-knit pit crew during his racing days, Clutch knew the importance of team work and how to operate like a well oiled machine. He brings these team qualities to the MEGA-MARINES, keeping the MONSTER BLASTER A.P.C. at peak performance level and firing mega-concussion missiles at MEGA-MONSTERS every chance he gets. He's a crack shot with M-16s, M-60s and the A.P.C.'s huge missle cannon!
Some Clutch (v3) figures had upper arms that were yellow with orange paint while others had upper arms that were orange with yellow paint.
Clutch's body is entirely original - no parts were taken from other figures.
Versions of Clutch
In 2003, Clutch was renamed "Double Clutch." So while there are several names, they are all based on the character "Clutch."
