G.I.Joe desert expert, Dusty v1 came with a unique camouflage cloth attached to his helmet (non-removable) that protects his neck and back of his head. While very sturdy and not often ripped off, this piece of cloth may fade faster than the rest of the figure, appearing as if it were solid tan and not camouflaged with brown spots.
Dusty has a red badge on his left shirt sleeve that sometimes may wear off from play use. Dusty's American flag on the right side of his chest is supposed to only be red and white - no blue.
Dusty's FAMAS rifle is of French origin and is an anagram for "Fusil d'Assaut de la Manufacture d'Armes de Saint-Étienne," which translates to Assault Rifle from the Saint-Étienne Weapons Factory.
