Crazylegs could have been the greatest organist in the world if his fingers hadn't been too short. The Airborne Rangers don't care how perfectly you can play Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, they're only concerned with your willingness to jump out of a helicopter into a hot LZ with nothing but a rifle, a couple of grenades, and the best wishes of your commanding officer. Crazylegs is of course, Airborne Ranger qualified and has been cross-trained as a forward artillery observer.
"We can be storming a hardened position, right into the teeth of an enfilade—green t racer so thick in the air you can smell the magnesium, AP mines going off with intersecting cones of fire, bouncing bettys . . . The works! Crazylegs comes ducking and weaving through all this with a weird light in his eyes and humming a selection from Johann Sebastian Bach!"

"Night Force operates stealthily in environments where the team is usually outnumbered and outgunned. Darkness is their best defense, only until the first shot has been fired! Once the team's presence and position has been compromised, it's up to Crazylegs to provide enough firepower and confusion to cover a tactical withdrawal. He loads 100% tracer ammo instead of the usual 1 to 5 ratio. This makes the other guy think there are twice as many out there coming at him!"
Toy Notes: Carded in a Toys 'R Us-exclusive two-pack with Outback. Item #6709-2. This figure is considered a moderately high-demand item.
