He's a sad, sad, lonely man, deluding himself with memories of his life in the west village in the 1970's, and who has spent far too much time in the company of his parrot. He's a cautionary tale to all naval enthusiasts and ornithophiles everywhere. I figure he probably drinks too much, too.

Shipwreck is one the best characters. He is GI JOE. I loved him as a kid and love him now. Joined the Joe team because Lady jaye was hot. Classic. Also what was he doing hanging out in a cobra bar anyway when he met flint and mutt. Just a cool dude.
Love that knowing is half the battle spoof, when he approaches the kid and asks him if his mom spent a lot of time in dockside bars.
...."My God it's like looking in a mirror." lol

He is a dunken sailor who is hardly ever in on missions and mostly a background guy. He's also good buddies with Clutch.

Well after the village people broke up. Spirit, Toll Booth, Shipwreck, and Wild Bill all enlisted in gi joe. It was the 80s and disco was over.
But as for Ripper. He found work in Cobra after a brief stint as Rob Halford decoy before moving to Australia and becoming an extra in "Mad Max".
So yeah, I don't use Shipwreck. I always though he was a silly character. I do however use Shipwreck in the wet suit, that figure rocked!

Its weird, even though I loved him in the cartoon and comics as a kid, when I was brought to the toy store to pick out a few joes ( 10 dollar a week allowance!!) I couldn't justify buying him over some of the other choices on the shelf ( come on think about it, sailor or army dudes!) . Maybe if I had a flagg I would have thought differently!

i liked shipwreck when i was a kid cause he had that cool whip weapon thing. Many cobras were whipped, hung, or strangled with it. I also liked him cause a sailor fits in with the aircraft carrier that I had. As a matter of fact, he never left the thing. He was always on it. I liked him as a kid. Not so much as an adult......the 25th version SUCKS and I hope that new 5 pack version is better
