One of my favorite action figures from the 1984 G.I. Joe action figure series is the original flamethrower trooper Blowtorch. Blowtorch would have only minor roles in the comic book series and the cartoon and would ultimately be replaced by Charbroil later on in the line. Still, Blowtorch was one of the first colorful G.I. Joe action figures (before it was way overdone) and most of the G.I. Joe figures released before him were in green or muted army uniform colors.
Blowtorch used entirely new sculpts and, to my knowledge, his parts were never used for other figures.
