FAST ATTACK VEHICLE
Series: Six (1987)
The Crossfire was released boxed in U.S. toy stores in 1987. It included a driver, Rumbler. The Crossfire was discontinued domestically in 1988.
The Crossfire featured a 70 foot range, a low speed mode for higher power over rough terrain, a high speed mode for quick attacks, 7 radio controlled functions, and a scale speed that topped 100 MPH. The Crossfire was a joint venture between Hasbro and Nikko R/C Toys of Japan. The Crossfire was based on a "toy-grade" 1/18th scale R/C buggy released by Nikko in 1986, called the Thunder Eagle.
Driver/Pilot: RUMBLER (v1)
Rumbler was first released as part of the sixth series (1987) packaged exclusively with the R/C Crossfire fast attack vehicle. It was shipped in limited quantities and he was discontinued after one year.
In 1993, Rumbler was available at the G.I.Joe Convention as a convention exclusive with different accessories misnamed "Footloose."
Easily Broken/Lost Pieces
The two red missiles, the red gun sight, and the red R/C flag sticker are small and easily lost.
There were two versions of the Crossfire - the Alpha 27 and Delta 49 versions. These were clearly marked on the side of the vehicle and marked different frequencies so that two Crossfires could be used simultaneously without interfering with each other. The Alpha 27 operated on 27 MHz and the Delta 49 operated on 49 MHz.
The vehicle mold was repainted or retooled for the following vehicles:
This was the only usage of the Crossfire mold.
