Version 1: 1987 regular carded assortment
Fig. #0116: M.P.MOS 1: Military Police [31B]
MOS2: Intelligence [35M]
  • head: Law (87, 91, 00)
  • arms: Law (87, 91, 00)
  • torso: Law (87, 91, 00)
  • waist: Law (87, 91, 00)
  • legs: Law (87, 91, 00)
Accessories: white helmet (new, with flared brim and "MP" on front); black Uzi (86 Low-Light's); black side-handle baton (new); black leash (new, with spiked collar); brown German Shepherd "Order" (new, with black muzzle and back stripe)
Law & Order walked a beat in Houston's Fifth Ward for two years before Law decided that there must be a more fulfilling way to be a cop, so he and his canine "Order" enlisted for the M.P.'s. Law is a trained dog-handler with a natural affinity for animals. He is also Airborne qualified.
"M.P.'s are responsible for the security of an installation. That may sound like a cushy job if all they are guarding is a garrison full of clerks, cooks, and accountants, but it's another matter altogether when they're acting as the defensive line for an elite unit like the Joes. The bad guys are going to send in the best they have and that's not good enough to get past Law & Order. You don't want to mess with him and that dog of his. Chew your leg right off, he will. After that, you still have to deal with the dog!"
Toy Notes: Item #6478. Law's face was modeled after Hasbro marketing director Kirk Bozigian.

As head of security for G.I. Joe, LAW has acquired a reputation as a relentless stickler for detail and a cool-headed fighter when the chips are down. He's a slow-talking, mule-headed, obstreperous hoot owl with an attitude, but he gets the job done. So when the Sonic Fighters Division was looking for someone to protect the most expensive and highly classified equipment in the entire G.I. Joe arsenal, LAW was the first man on the roster. A trained martial arts expert, LAW is also Airborne qualified.
"Law's the kind of soldier who isn't easily impressed. He's walked a beat for days at a time, fought off entire armies of invading forces and apprehended some of the most dangerous masterminds in the Cobra Legions. And that's just before breakfast."

He's a slow-talking, mule-headed, military cop, but he gets the job done. So when the Battle Corps team needed another member to protect the innocent and bust Cobra enemies, Law was the first man on the roster. He's the kind of soldier who's walked a beat for days at a time trying to eliminate as many criminals as he can. Nothing pleases him more than seeing justice served.
Motto: "No street is safe when Cobras are around, and no Cobra is safe when I'm around!"
