Welcome to the Outpost. Today I’m Getting into the 1986 G.I.Joe medic Lifeline. Lifeline was a figure my older brother bought so I did have some play time with him as a kid. This was a really cool figure when it first hit shelves. The figure had a ton of detail and of course the signature white Rescue down his left leg that really jumped out at you.
Lifeline came with his signature medic rescue case with the respiratory mask and a pistol. The pistol ended up not making sense after an episode where Lifeline refused to use a weapon. This really developed Lifeline into a unique character. Lifeline was used extensively in the cartoon but I’m not sure how much in the comics.
He had a few nice upgrades including a Tiger Force, 2002 version packaged with Sideswipe, and an awesome modern figure with a removable helmet, medical equipment, and a real cool medical backboard. Lifeline is just one of those figures I loved as a kid because he was unique. I got very lucky finding the modern 2011 figure and I’m so happy I have this one. Who loves Lifeline? Which medic is your favorite over all? Sound off AFTER THE JUMP and let us know! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
