1991 Red Star: Oktober Guard Officer
Includes: removable hat, knife, backpack with antenna, mini Gatling gun with 2 barrels, ammo belt, AK47 machine gun, *spring-loaded missile launcher and missile.
When it's time for close-quarters combat, Red Star comes prepared.
Red Star earned that cold stare in Afghanistan.
1991 introduced oversized, spring-loaded weapons. These powerful weapons shoot over 10 feet.
Red Star was originally released on a red card, meaning that he was a bad guy. This was a factory error.
The file card said Cobra, but Hasbro noticed the error and decided to cover Cobra with a blue G.I. Joe sticker.
Later versions of Red Star were released on a blue card, meaning that he was a good guy. Evidently Cold War tensions had subsided.
