ASSAULT COPTER LOCUST (XH-1)
Series: Sixteen (2000)
The Assault Copter Locust [XH-1] was released boxed in U.S. toy stores in 2000. The box included the driver, Wild Bill (v4).
The Locust was originally to be called the Dragonfly, but Hasbro lost the trademark to the name, so chose to rename it the Locust. Pre-production boxes pictured at the G.I.Joe Convention in 2000 show the name Dragonfly.
Spinning Rotor Blades
Driver/Pilot: WILD BILL (v4)
Easily Broken/Lost Pieces
There are several pieces that can come off and become easily lost - including the canopy, the nose turret, the hook and winch, the six missiles, the side gun, the black hose that attaches to the side gun, the two red rubber pieces at the ends of the rotors, and the white piece that is pushed to cause the rotors to spin.
Also, check the spinning rotation of the rotors. The rotors should NEVER be pulled out, as that will break the spinning action.
No variations of Locust are known to exist.
