BULLHORN is an extremely calm individual, possessing an open and compassionate personality. He's exactly the type of person needed to negotiate with wackos and fanatics who have an axe to grind with society. Of course, that same steely coolness also comes in handy when he is forced to take decisive action that requires an accurate and lethal delivery of firepower!
"Everyone is willing to talk to Bullhorn! And why shouldn't they be? He has the looks of a choirboy and is a good listener. This guy has more finesse than the slickest diplomat, using it to convince his adversaries that he actually CARES about their problems. That's when they discover the folly of messing with a former hand-to-hand combat instructor from Quantico who is also a contender for the national practical pistol title!"

BULLHORN is the crisis negotiator and tactical intervention specialist for the G. I. JOE Special Weapons and Tactics team. Prior to enlistment, he was a Practical Shooting Champion and hand-to-hand combat insructor at the F.B.I. Academy in Quantico, Virginia. Although a highly skilled fighter, he is an extremely calm individual, possessing an open and compassionate personality. This makes him exactly the type of person needed to negotiate with psychopaths and fanatics who have an axe to grind with society. Of course, that same steely coolness also comes in handy when he is forced to take decisive action that requires an accurate and lethal delivery of firepower!
BULLHORN's primary function is to resolve high-risk situations with a minimum loss of life, injury, or property damage, by neutralizing threats that are a clear and present danger. He is usually able to defuse a situation through verbal communication, but even with a completely unreasonable target he is often able to finesse them enough to let their guard down—just long enough for a sharpshooter or assault team to disarm the threat. On the flip side, he gets completely wild behind the wheel of his assigned S.W.A.T. vehicle, a necessity if he wants to get to the area of operations before the shooting starts. But, what good are negotiation skills against an adversary that does not reason, but is programmed?
"They say talk is cheap, but I can make it worth your life!"
Toy Notes: Included with an exclusive Hammer recolor at the SWAT/Headhunters-themed 2008 convention. This figure is considered a high-demand item.
