Sold in 1987 as part of series 6 in a special 3-Pack, Sgt. Slaughter’s Renegades could very well be G.I. Joe’s equivalent to groups like The A-Team, DC Comic’s The Suicide Squad or even the Dirty Dozen.
They a small group that has no official status and are sent out to create all sort of havoc on the enemy forces but if capture are not acknowledge by the government because of there wild actions or chaos/damage they might leave in there wake.
A extreme trio of toughs for sure that could only be lead by Pro Wrestler turn G.I. Joe Sgt. Slaughter and each of them have there own interesting backgrounds so let me give you the rundown on each of them….
First up with have Taurus who was a former circus acrobat from Europe who did undercover work for Interpol before being recruited for the Renegades team.
Next we have Mercer who is the only Cobra Viper to have defected to the G.I. Joe team and lived to tell about.
And finally Red Dog who is a former barefooted football placekicker and “B” Movie stuntman.
A very unique team and one I would want to have my back to deal with the likes of The Dreadnoks or Cobra’s Battle Android Troopers(B.A.T.s).
