Who Is....?

M/Sgt W.C. Culbert?

Dragonfly Gunner.

I haven't found a filecard with that name. Anyone have any idea?

I don't think it was anyone in particular GI I do remember that being asked in an Action Force issue years ago.
Spock, where the hell's the power you promised?

Side of the Dragonfly toy. Theres W Hardy, and WC Culbert.

Evidently, after a bit of research the one on the Skystriker that isn't Ace is also an unknown character.

A bit wierd though - unless, if you think about it, say it was F.Talltree, or W.Weems and a child didn't have that figure... If it's one you can't get then they won't get confused about who the co-pilot/gunner *should* be (Does that make sense?)

Makes total sense to me Rob - so I'd be very worried if I were you! :-D

Makes you wonder if the toy's designers were putting thier own real names on the toys don't it?

Larry Hama put a lot real people's names on the Joes. guys he was in the army with, other friends, and people at Hasbro as well as historical figures - Frostbite's surname 'Seward' is taken from the guy who oversaw America's purchase of Alaska from Russia, which at the time was called 'Seward's Folly'...
