Metal-Head vs. Raptor GIJOE March Madness 2012
Metal-Head joined Destro's Iron Grenadier army as his anti-tank specialist. When he began working for Cobra, he was there as a double-agent, spying on Cobra Commander for Destro. The Joes first encountered Metal-Head during the Battle of Benzheen when he personally went up against a group of G.I. Joe armored vehicles on foot, armed with his advanced missile system. Before the battle could be won, it was announced that Benzheen's Emir made a deal with Cobra, putting an end to hostilities. Metal-Head soon reported back to Destro in Scotland, warning that Cobra was planning to attack Castle Destro. Cobra Commander proved him right by launching an attack that led to the destruction of the castle.
Before he ever donned his bird outfit, Raptor was your typical white-collar tax consultant. It wasn't until he got into falconry that birds of prey became his life, leaving the finance world behind. Raptor turned to hunting and poaching, using and breeding his winged predators to produce and outfit larger and stronger birds of prey. After targeting minks on a Cobra-owned ranch, he was apprehended by Destro and later was brought into the fold. While his world revolves around making predatory birds to attack G.I. Joe, he still knows it's all about the money.

As much as I love Raptor, I had to vote for Metal Head because I loved his performance in the DiC cartoon so much it hurts.

I never really liked either character....but the convention version of Metal head, and the battle corps '94 figure of metal head were both very cool.

Metal Head got kinda a bad rap for the way he was in the DIC cartoons, but if you read the file card he is really a cool character, he became the "Bazooka" of the DIC series and undeserved comic relief.
Take a load off and watch some GIJOE videos.
That's the way the Pogo Ballistic Battle Ball bounces.

Kinda close between these two since Metal Head is 'bird brained'.

Metalhead has been my personal pick to win it all. He has had appearances in the comics and the cartoons. While I have a hard time watching the DIC gi joe cartoon it seems metal head is one of the stars and a reason to keep watching. Hes an IG or a cobra ,,, He is a human missle launcher... Pretty badass imo!!!!

I still think Raptor is getting to many votes because of that awesome custom that shows off the characters potential. I'd rather add to my IG ranks. Metal Head ftw.
