Spirit v1 was available as a carded figure. The most common form of damage to Spirit is actually to his bald eagle, Freedom. Freedom's talon's are often broken, making it impossible to latch Freedom onto Spirit's wrist. His unique belt is removable and commonly missing. As far as paintwear goes, the white on the handle of knife and feathers (both non-removable and molded onto his shirt). The blue shirt is sometimes discolored. Other paintwear can be found at his wrists from Freesom beings snapped on and off.
Spirit is one of few Joes depicted with long hair. His removable belt is also a bit of an anomaly in the G.I.Joe line.
