Figure Releases

Versions: 1. 2003/I (Spy Troops Wave 5) 2. 2003/II (Night Force) 3. 2004 (Tiger Force)
Version 1: 2003 Spy Troops Wave 5 two-pack assortment (03/I)
Fig. #0681: Infiltrator/SniperMOS 1: Infantry [11B]

Two-Pack Accessories: green jungle hat (new); green vest (new, soft plastic, joins in back); green waist belt (shared with 03 Burn Out, with attached knife); brown ghillie suit (common for 03 figures); silver assault rifle (86 Leatherneck's M16/M203 with Sound Attack tab); brown sniper rifle (new, Accuracy International AWP)

When CROSS HAIR goes out into the field after a target, he tries to become the field. He can blend in with his surroundings so completely that an enemy standing five feet away won't see him. He studies his target so closely and so intensely that he can make accurate predictions about where the target is going to move and at what speed. Unfortunately, CROSS HAIR tends to behave this way in the barracks as well. Many G.I. JOE team members have been rudely surprised to find CROSS HAIR looking over their shoulders when they thought they were alone.
The sharpness of his vision is off the scale. When he was asked to read the last line at his army entrance exam eye-test, he responded with the copyright notice on the bottom of the chart. CROSS HAIR once spotted COBRA C.L.A.W.S. COMMANDER at extreme range and got off one shot that didn't appear to have any effect. "I didn't miss," he said, "Is it my fault he was wearing body armor?"
"When I'm in full under-cover mode you can forget about the needle in the haystack; I become just another piece of straw in the haystack."
Variations: Most copies have a head originally molded in Cross Hair's skin color; a few heads are painted. The single-pack variant lacks the dark paint-wipe on the green portions of the uniform and has differently colored accessories. The single-pack filecard omits the second paragraph of text.
