Brazil - Comandos em Ação History - Tocha

While he was released in the U.S. as Flamethrower, Codename: Blowtorch, in Brazil he was released as Lança Chamas, Nome de Código : Tocha.

Tocha was part of the third Comandos em Ação series in 1986. Beginning in 1986, the Brazilian figures did not have the Estrela logo on them. Instead, they had Hasbro logos.

The figure did not come with the same accessories as the U.S. version. While the mask, flamethrower, and backpack were the same, the helmet was not. The U.S. version of Blowtorch came with a helmet with details molded on them, while the Brazilian Tocha came with a plain yellow helmet.

Lança Chamas translates into "Flame Thrower", while Tocha means "Torch".
