One day I was playing with my Joes in my room. My Mom walked in and gave me a box of toys that her friend had left over from a garage sale. A small box; some random Star Wars, Six Million Dollar Man, and other miscellaneous stuff....just random pieces......
and this guy.
The Action Force, SAS Commando, apparently named Beaver (just found that out). I didn't know his name or anything, I just thought....HOLY CRAP IS THIS GUY COOL!! Ya see, I quickly noticed that, clad in black, he looked like a frikin silent killing machine.....and that's how I used him. I got a bit jaded with Snake Eyes being a bit overexposed so this guy became my silent, one man hit squad. He'd go in to hot spots first and clear out the guard or set up a sniper location. Expert in all forms of hand to hand combat as well as the use of any weapon ever made. His extremely high IQ made him able to adapt to any situation and be able to quickly achieve his objective. I didn't even name him. It was all classified. Hawk would just review a mission and if it was particularly difficult, he'd turn to Breaker and say "Call Him In."
He also came with the One Man Boat pictured below. I don't have that anymore, but most of the time that was how he'd make his entry into a hot spot. I missed this guy and just recently tracked him down and will have to snag the boat eventually. Its funny how this figure was just a random leftover given to me. I had no idea that Action Force was a big toy line with a story and all that (I do now and am really contemplating getting into these guys), but I took a shine to him and made up an entire persona and role for him into my play. Its great that a child's imagination can create memories that follow him into adulthood.
