Brazil - Forca Destro (Iron Grenadiers)


Image Close-Up

The Estrela toy company did not just release the U.S. versions of G.I.Joe toys, but made several changes before releasing the toys. As a result, there are many exclusive figures and toys that were only available in Brazil.

Pictured above is a portion from a Brazilian Estrela toy catalog from approximately 1991. This portion describes Forca Destro - the force that battles against Battleforce 2000. Basically the Iron Grenadiers. However, note that Dr.Mindbender, Astro-Viper, and the Overlord (in Brazil known as Ciclon) are pictured as being part of Destro's organization. In addition, because these two figures were not released carded in the U.S., note the all-new artwork for both Destro and the Overlord.
