Brazil - Dragon



Pictured above are the front and back of an opened cardback for Bazuqueiro, Nome de Código : Dragon. He was released as part of the first Comandos em Ação series in 1984.

Dragon was a straight-arm figure and has no date stamp on the body. The back of the figure features the Estrela logo on raised lettering. The figure came with a green bazooka, a green backpack, and a green helmet. He was released in the U.S. as Bazooka Soldier, Codename: Zap. The term "Bazuqueiro" translates into "Bazooka Soldier".

While the vehicles released in 1984 did not come with vehicle drivers, the packaging and filecards were linked to encourage kids to buy both. The filecard of Dragon explained that he operated the Moto Metralha (Machine Gun Motorcycle).
