Deep Six never won any awards for being friendly. Became a Navy diver so that "I could be alone." Enjoys bottlecap collecting, solitaire and the New York Times crossword puzzles. Only 12 out of 50 Navy divers passed the strict requirements for the coveted diver position on the Joe Team. Eight washed out in the practical application testing. Of the 4 finalists, Deep Six could hold his breath the longest.
Torpedo says: "Down in the depths where light doesn't reach and the water pressure can crush you like an eggshell - that's where Deep Six likes it!"
Toy Notes: Item #6049. The least articulated vintage figure, moving only at the shoulders.

Always a loner and an individualist, DEEP SIX rarely talks to his G.I. Joe teammates and barely remembers their code names, but his loyalty to the organization is unquestionable. He has recently given up crossword puzzles and bottle-cap collecting to devote his off-duty hours to recording and studying whale songs. He is a qualified underwater demolitions instructor and an avid supporter of public television.
"Cobra is always coming up with new underwater specialists, none of which can fill Deep Six's flippers. It severely cuts down on efficiency if, while sabotaging off-shore drilling platforms or trans-oceanic cables, Cobra divers have to constantly look over their shoulders to make sure that Deep Six isn't sneaking up behind them to cut their air hoses!"

Version 3: summer 1992 Eco-Warriors premium carded figure assortment
Deep Water Specialist
Deep-Six

  • head: Deep Six (92)

Accessories: black speargun (89 Deep Six's), large grey dolphin with white belly (new, "Finback"), pink large-footprint flippers with curved toe and ridge down middle (new), black figure stand (common).
DEEP-SIX'S armored diving suit is built not only to withstand the pressures of deep water, but is specially coated to resist the corrosive action of the worst aquatic pollutants, including Cobra's toxic sludge! Unlike deep water suits of yore. Deep-Six's new suit benefits from new advances in metallurgy, ceramics, and bonded polymers to give him unparalleled freedom of movement and flexibility. Together with his trained dolphin "Finback," Deep-Six can penetrate any underwater obstacle Cobra deploys on the ocean floor!
Variations: A few (possibly only 24) early figures had a black and white orca instead of a dolphin. These probably did not make it to store shelves.
Toy Notes: Features a temperature-based color change. Item #6821. In the 1992 insert catalog, concept art appears instead of the actual figure.

DEEP SIX is a loner and an individualist who rarely engages in casual conversation with his G.I. JOE teammates. If he's on a mission, he's totally focused on the task at hand. Don't look for him to join a pick-up game of basketball; he prefers crossword puzzles and other solitary activities. He may keep to himself, but his loyalty to the team is without question and he gives everything he's got to help the team achieve victory. As a Master Diver, he ranks at the top in terms of experience and knowledge in all areas of underwater diving and salvage. If a dangerous undersea mission needs to be done, DEEP SIX is always the first to step forward.
