Detached from the crack Black Sea Regiment of the Soviet Naval Infantry (equivalent of our Marine Corps), RED STAR now commands the Russian version of the G.I. Joe Team, known as the Oktober Guard. He was the youngest chess master in Odessa at the age of eleven, and is a published Pushkin scholar, his monograph on "Boris Godonov" being considered the definitive work. In his spare time, he coaches the pistol team at the Dynamo Sports Club in Moscow.
"Red Star came home from that mess in Afghanistan with a bad attitude and a funny look in the eye, but when they needed an experienced field commander to lead the Oktober Guard, he leaped at the chance. He wasn't about to let the top volunteers from all the best units be led by some party toad with relatives in the high command and a yen to become a hero of the Soviet Union."
Variations: The earliest filecards were printed identifying Red Star as a Cobra, corrected with a sticker.
Toy Notes: Item #6588. The prototype shown in the 1991 insert catalog has a black missile.

RED STAR commands the OKTOBER GUARD, which is the Russian version of the G.I. JOE team, and was formerly part of the "crack" Black Sea Regiment of the Soviet Naval Infantry (the equivalent of the United States Marine Corps). He was the youngest chess master in Odessa at the age of eleven, and is published a Pushkin scholar, his monograph on "Boris Godonov" being considered the definitive work. In his spare time, he coaches the pistol team at the Dynamo Sports Club in Moscow.
"When an experienced field commander was needed to lead the OKTOBER GUARD, RED STAR leaped at the chance. He wasn't about to let the top volunteers from all the best units be led by just anyone; they deserved the best, and he made sure they got it."
Toy Notes: Carded in a two-pack with Duke and an original comic (#6). Item #32163.
