Granadiero


Estopim


Brazil

Carded Figure (front)

Carded Figure (back)


Figure Description

Estopim was an exclusive figure released carded in Brazil around 1987 by the Estrela toy company.

The figure was later emulated by the Argentinian toy company Plastirama and used to create a version of Sokerk (v1).


Filecard Translation

Granadeiro (Grenadier)
Code Name: Estopim

Granadeiro joined the Commandos and became a specialist in explosives and armaments: he can assemble and disassemble any kind of explosive weapon that comes to his hands. But his favorite weapons are grenades. With them he can reach close targets, and so be where he likes the most: where the action is taking place. Because of his courage he is respected by everybody. His only handicap is his lack of patience: you don't need to be a Cobra to make Estopim "explode" in rage.


Accessories:


Estopim came with a tan helmet, a black machine gun, and a black bipod.


Body Construction:

The figure is made from the same mold of the swivel-arm Grunt. However, the figure uses the bulkier waistpiece from the straight-arm Grunt and the lower arms of Airborne (1983).
