Series: Twelve (1993)
The Detonator was first released boxed in U.S. toy stores in 1993. It included the driver, Nitro-Viper. The Detonator was discontinued in 1994.
Driver/Pilot: NITRO-VIPER (v1)
Nitro-Viper was released as part of the twelfth series (1993) boxed with the Cobra Detonator. He was discontinued domestically in 1994.
Nitro-Viper holds the dubious distinction of being the only G.I. Joe character released during 1982 - 1994 not to come with a filecard. In 1994, noted 3 3/4" collector Michael Livanos created a Nitro-Viper filecard that was "sanctioned" by Hasbro.
