Series: Thirteen (1994)
Lifeline was released carded in the thirteenth series (1994) as part of the Battle Corps subset. The Battle Corps figures were numbered 1 through 13 - Lifeline was number 8.
Lifeline was discontinued in 1994.
Lifeline came with a yellow flare launcher, a yellow flashlight, a yellow knife, a yellow case, a gray microphone, a black missile launcher (spring loaded, actually fired), black string, a yellow grappling hook, and a yellow figure stand.
Except for the mouthpiece, grappling hook, black string, and missile launcher, all of Lifeline's accessories came attached to one plastic "tree." The accessories were removed from the tree.
Birthplace: Seattle, Washington
Primary Specialty: Medic

Some versions of Lifeline had the mouthpiece glued on. Other versions did not.
There are two variants of Lifeline's packaging and filecard. The earlier first variant featured the G.I.Joe logo horizontally at the top of the card. The filecard on the back of the packaging was the "standard" size. The later second variant featured the G.I.Joe logo vertically on the left side of the card and the filecard was reduced down to "baseball card" size.
Versions of Lifeline
In 2004, Lifeline was renamed "Sgt. Lifeline." Note that most versions are named Edwin C. Steen. Version Three did not come with a file card, and version five and Sgt. Lifeline are named Greg Scott.
