This fuchsia version of Viper was only available at the 2002 G.I.Joe Convention "Legacy of Valor" at Norfolk, Virginia.
Viper was included with a bagged set (unofficially named the "Fuchsia Guard") that included a Fuchsia Baroness,
Fuchsia Tomax, Fuchsia Xamot, and twelve fuchsia Vipers.
The 2002 Convention featured a Crimson Strike Team as a Convention Exclusive.
However, the first sets of figures for the Convention were accidentally produced in fuchsia/pink.
The problem was corrected and the red Crimson Strike Team was available at the Convention.
The sets of mistaken fuchsia/pink figures were available for sale at the Convention.
Take care not to confuse the Fuchsia Viper with the Crimson Viper.
Viper came with a black rifle and a black backpack.
