''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.

''Raw guts, gumption and common sense make him one of America's best!''
Mac Tough was the second of the original 8 American Defense team members, numbered AD-2. Remco repainted Mac Tough a few times to make different characters. Among them was Commando Hank, which Bucky had previously made a custom of. When I built my custom, I wanted to use different parts to give Mac Tough his own look and identity, so I started with a large body Roadblock as a base. That instantly set him apart.
