Grand Slam just suffered from the "Too many Joes" syndrome. He had no real use in most of the stories. He was an artillery man and most of the time, the Joes didn't need artillery.
He had a better toy life as he came with the Jet Pack, Night Scepter, etc..
The DDP thing was because he came as a DTC figure at about the same time.

Rumor is that when GI Joe first began he regularly made passes at Scarlett, commonly referred to Snake Eyes as "that Snake guy", grunts loudly instead of calling Grunt by his codename, spreads rumors that Stalker's codename was given to him by the local police, told Short Fuse he needs glasses, called red pads "gay" and says that's why he switched to silver instead, always addresses Zap as "zap, bang, pow", says guys that drive vehicles don't have the balls to run or fly into battle, and guys with beards are just covering their ugly faces to protect innocent bystanders. Apparently he has since been shunned by the entire team. Hama was just being kind.

DDP also put Shockwave on that team I think, Shockwave is pretty much in the same boat as Grand Slam.
Guys you gotta support G.I. Joe or else we won't have G.I. Joe on the shelves and they haven't released Spaceshot. We can't have an anniversary line without Spaceshot!

they needed to fart out a figure to put with a small-mid size vehicle, cause even back then vehicles with drivers sold better. They knew it would be a loss to have Flash in 3 seperate selling points, so they included GS as a crapper...
But little did they realise back then that characters with multiple versions would be their bread and butter, hence Snake Eyes is up to what? 27 freakin' versions?
I would have bought several multi-colored Flash's (even in the 25th collection, Flash has the Silver pads...laser resistant)
But the Bro' didn't know any better so the original team is doomed with an unlucky number.
