The original Bludd figure is notable for having a right arm that is one solid piece of black plastic with no joints. It has been speculated that this was meant to represent an artificial or mechanical limb, though it was not portrayed as such in any fiction. Later releases altered the arm to the normal multi-jointed Joe style.
Major Bludd first appeared in the Marvel Comics series G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #15 (September 1983), and is named in issue #16.
