I found this guy at a goodwill. He seems to be a bunch of gi-joes put together. Anyone seen anything like this before? Thanks and what a cool site this is!

That's what's known as a Frankensteined figure. That's the good/bad of having a line of figures held together with a Phillips head screw - easy for anyone to customize but you end up finding a lot of weird stuff like this. The head and back of the chest (and possibly the left arm) are from a H.I.S.S. Driver, the front of the chest is from a Dreadnok (I think Ripper), the right arm is from a B.A.T. and the pelvis and legs are from, I believe, Stalker.

When I was a kid I used to take that screw out then throw figure in the air and watch him explode when he hit the ground lol. But yeah I was a young as 10 years old when I used to mix and match GI Joe parts

That's one odd conception, even by Frankenjoe standards.

The parts for this guys are all over the place:

1984 Wild Weasel head and back of torso.
1985 Torch front torso.
1983 HISS Driver left arm.
1986 B.A.T. right arm.
1984 Ripcord waist and legs.

Makes me wonder if the owner put him together with parts from trashed figures just so they wouldn't go to waste.
