He was discontinued domestically in 1994.
Roadblock came with a blue helmet with a removable red face shield, three gold guns, a gold machete, a dark blue missile launcher (spring loaded, actually fired), two gold missiles, and a gold figure stand.

No variations of Roadblock (v6) are known to exist.
Roadblock was created using the same body mold as General Hawk (1991). The body mold was also used to create General Hawk (v3) (1993) and Roadblock (v7) (1994).
Roadblock's head was reused from Roadblock (v4) (1992) and Roadblock (v5) (1993), and was then reused on Roadblock (v7) (1994).
In Canada, Roadblock was released in dual-language packaging.
Versions of Roadblock
Note that Roadblock (v8) has a file name of "Charles L. Griffith," making that figure a version of "Double Blast" (2001). However, the conventional wisdom is that this was simply an error on Hasbro's part, and that the figure is supposed to be the "Marvin F. Hinton" Roadblock of the other versions.
