Headhunter Driver











Previous character: Headhunter BAT
Next character: Hotwire

 

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Headhunter Drivers were never animated.

Headcanon

Given their own status and uniforms beginning in 1991, Headhunter Drivers were the most elite of the Headhunters, trained in all regular Headhunter Guard operations but also expert at demolitions and handling ground vehicles of all sorts. Their appearance is represented by Version 1.

Like their infantry-based companions, the HEADHUNTER DRIVERS are expected to be highly skilled street warriors and personal bodyguards to GRISTLE. But those selected to be the Crime Boss's chauffeurs are further expected to be experts in whatever civilian or military vehicle they scrounge up from whatever obscure locale they currently infest. They have been known to use discarded COBRA assault vehicles, stolen G.I. JOE transports, or even custom craft they cobbled together themselves. All they really need is a working engine, some armor plating, and the addition of a few big guns to get them on the move.
HEADHUNTER DRIVERS know they will not just be carrying their illegal materials or transporting their fellow troops. Eventually someone will stumble onto their operation, and those same conveyances have to quickly become escape craft.
"Driving GRISTLE around is a sweet gig—he always wants something blown up, or someone driven over, just for kicks!"
Toy Notes: Free to attendees of the 2008 Headhunter-themed Convention (in lieu of the usual free vehicle, reportedly a Rage canceled due to broken molds). This figure is considered a high-demand item.
