Brazil - Comandos em Ação History - Leopardo



While he was released in the U.S. as Jungle Trooper, Codename: Recondo, in Brazil he was released as Patrulheiro da Selva, Nome de Código : Leopardo.

Leopardo 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. Leopardo came with the same accessories as the U.S. version.

While some of the Comandos em Ação vehicles did not come with vehicle drivers, the packaging and filecards were linked to encourage kids to buy a particular figure to go with their vehicle. The filecard of Leopardo explained that he operated the Transporte Tãtico Anfíbio (APC).

Patrulheiro da Selva translates into "Jungle Patrol", while Leopardo means "Leopard".
