Notes: Sunbow's H.I.S.S. Drivers wore the 1983 outfit with a less pronounced helmet crest, and the visor had a red outline and was no wider than the face mask. There were no wristbands, and the chest straps had a thick black outline. By chance, their appearance in The Funhouse made it into the first season's closing credits, so they were seen by viewers every day despite their scant use in the show proper. Also, a character resembling a blue H.I.S.S. Driver is seen (very briefly) parachuting from an exploding Cobra jet in A Real American Hero Part 4.

Reissues: Reissued in mail offers 1987-1988 and 1992 (Chilling Events, Operation Blackout, End of Slaughter, Top Secret, Mission Rescue: Code Blue). In several of these brochures, his name is switched with that of Stinger Driver. This and his appearance in the Stinger in the G.I. Joe Bugle offer suggests Hasbro may have long confused these characters for some unknown reason.
