Thor's Day Hero: Beach Head
As a kid 1986 was a pretty good year for toys. Being an avid GI Joe fan up until that point I was blown away (once again) by the new lineup in 1986. The Dreadnoks got a new member (who looked like half the friends my parents had), there was a really cool new sniper and even Cobra got a crazy android trooper. But Beach Head was by far the coolest that year.
He wasn't a ninja, but he had a cool mask sort of like one. He had a chest rig loaded with ammo mags, a cool sub-machinegun, and a backpack that had a crossbow on it. He had a few, brief shining moments in the comics, but he was very underplayed. Backyard action however was where Beach Head really cleaned house, often having to save the rest of team because they went and got captured or some such. For cool equipment and good childhood memories Beach Head is a welcome addition to the Thor's Day Heroes.
