''American Defense... the very name strikes terror into the hearts of the enemies of freedom! American Defense... the elite secret troop of specialized fighters in Defense of Freedom! American Defense... headed by the Super Eight Attack Squad... America's best Defense!'' - Taken from back of 1986 packaging.

American Defense was a line of 3 3/4'' military toys sold exclusively at Kmart in the eighties. The line started with Galoob's A-Team molds and Remco grew it from there. It was later produced by different companies and ended up in dollar stores and discount outlets. Similar to GI Joe, it included a wide variety of colorful characters. However, without a cartoon, comic or any marketing to back it up, the line rode GI Joe's coattails for a while and then disappeared.

Frogman was a super simple custom to make. I had a spare AOCI Wetsuit. Since the colors are so close, I started there. Even though he is completely painted, he remains completely poseable.

To teach, improve, share, entertain and showcase the work of the customizing community.
