Maverick graduated at the top of his class from the Air Force Academy and promptly volunteered for every experimental program that came down the line. Consequently, he is one of the few pilots qualified to operate the entire range of multifunction, programmable keyboard controls, voice-actuated weapons systems, and "open-loop" cybernetic situations analysis computers. He has the physical strength to withstand massive G-forces, the reflexes of a gymnast, and a clarity of eyesight that reads off the scale . . .
"He's a natural flyer. He can't remember a time when he wasn't flying. Honest. You see, his mom flew a crop duster all across the corn belt. An old Stearman biplane. This was back before day-care, right? She'd just strap him in, hand him a water gun and a jelly sandwich, and take off for a day of dusting bollworms!"
Toy Notes: Saw a brief limited release on a single card in time for the 1987 Christmas season.
Re-releases: Also carded for more general release in a two-pack with Blocker (87) in 1988, at about the time the BF2000 vehicles were released. Item #6523. A recolored version was released in Brazil as Biomassa. Some parts were used to create the Brazil-exclusive figures Aguia Comando and Albatroz.
