OOC Notes

  • As with every Sky Patrol action figure, Altitude's body mold originally came from a pre-existing character but with an all new head mold.
  • The Sky Patrol parachutes and backpacks are repaints of the green Parachute Pack first available by mail in 1984.
  • A "Spc. Altitude" figure was available in 2009, but the file name and filecard text came from Free Fall, and the character design was reminiscent of Rip-Cord.
  • The third Native American member of the Joe team, after Airborne and Spirit.
  • A SGM or CSM is referred to, and addressed, as "Sergeant Major". The Sergeant Major of the Army is a separate and unique position, but is still addressed as "Sergeant Major".
