Airwave was first released as an action figure in 1990, as part of the Sky Patrol line. The figure came with a silver helmet (with visor pegs), a bronze visor (shieldlike), a brown backpack (84 Parachute Pack) with silver parachute, and a silver machine gun/grenade launcher. His mold, with the exception of his head, was previously used for the Cobra character 'Motor-Viper'.[4]
