|RAMPAGE enlisted for basic at the same time as BEACHHEAD, and the two served in the same Ranger detachment. RAMPAGE was recommended for the job when the G.I. JOE team needed someone to honcho the power of the SPLIT FIRE vehicle. RAMPAGE is perfectly at home muscling three tons of steel at full barrel into the winding box canyons or narrow mountain passes that make up a typical mission. Having honed his vehicle skills in the rough terrain of Afghanistan and Bosnia, hunting COBRA patrols in anything less than the worst conditions imaginable would be a let-down. A stickler for perfection, RAMPAGE insists on doing all of the repair and re-calibration of his equipment himself. The G.I. JOE team likes having RAMPAGE around because he lets them read his comic books (as long as they don't crimp the spines).|
"You can tell BEACHHEAD and RAMPAGE are old friends. They're both self-assured and self-reliant. They even dress alike a lot of the time."
|Toy Notes: Item #55431. The unrelated figure Rampage available by mail in 1991 was a renamed variation of Heavy Metal (85).
