OK, so it's "Destro" and a "Crimson HISS." But it's still pretty close.

What's with the cutlass?

ya thats exactly what I thought! a Hyena! YES !

and ya its suppose to be the same mold as the original.

Id prefer a DTC hiss though, that was a superb update to an old classic

my favorite though remains the Hiss II now that in black would rock

For our UK brothers that don't know the G.I. Joe side of things ;)

The second version of Destro here in the States was the gold headed version, which this figure is based on. He led the Iron Grenadiers, his own private army, and carried a traditional sword at the time.

Now to make things a little cloudier, this Desrto is a repaint of the 25th gold head version, without the cape. But the colors are pretty clearly based on Red Jackal since he has a red ascot and silver head. Not to mention the big red tank. All of the details that were gold originally, including the sword, are now silver in this version.
