Raptor was animated only for commercials.
Robin Andreason, born December 9, 1958 in Manhattan, New York. A mathematical and financial genius by reputation, he was recruited by Tomax and Xamot for the Crimson Guard in 1983, and the poaching incident described on his filecard took place the following year, with him in full costume. (His penchant for suiting up was unknown prior to this.) He served Cobra in various capacities until the organization went underground in 1989. His appearance is represented by Version 1.

|Raptor was a yuppie tax consultant who took up falconry as a pastime and soon became obsessed with the avian blood-sport. He discovered that by breeding bigger and stronger birds and equipping them with steel-tipped talons, they were capable of attacking much more profitable game. Caught poaching on a Cobra mink ranch by DESTRO, Raptor joined the ranks of the Cobra legions and began work on developing a bird of prey strong enough to attack a G.I. Joe.|
"Raptor doesn't have any delusions about what he is even if he dresses up in that bird suit of his and spends most of his time in a giant bird cage. Those are means to an end, and the bottom line for Raptor is his non-taxable profit margin."
