Blowtorch came with a yellow and red helmet with hose.
Birthplace: Tampa, Florida
Primary Specialty: Infantry Special Weapons
Secondary Specialty: Combat Engineer
Motto: "Understanding how fire and firepower are related leads to weapons development, and we need all the advantages we muster against COBRA forces."
A qualified expert with all known military flame-throwers, pyrotechnics and heat-projection devices, BLOWTORCH is also extremely proficient in defending against them. He is currently studying for advanced degrees in both structural and chemical engineering because he feels that he can't ever know too much about the weapons he uses and has used against him, and about the structures he might be called upon to attack or protect. Harsh arctic weather conditions reduce the effectiveness of flame weapons, which is why BLOWTORCH has a personal bone to pick with COBRA SNOW SERPENTS. Aside from his rather annoying habit of pushing the "test" button on every smoke detector he comes across, BLOWTORCH is fairly realistic and practical.
The new RAGING TYPHOON vehicle gives the GI JOE team some much-needed firepower. With its SPY TROOPS modes, it can be reconfigured for land, sea, or air combat - a perfect vehicle to match the interest BLOWTORCH has in structural engineering!
No variations of Blowtorch (v1) are known to exist.
The body was modified from Blowtorch (v2) (2002). Note that the forearms and the calves sport connection pegs for blocks.
