Greg Berndtson, former Design Director Plus, began working on the G.I. Joe brand by doing the accessory details for the figures during its earliest days of development. He later went on to work on such things such as the Jump Jet Pack, Wolverine, Tomahawk, Cobra Maggot, Amphibious Personnel Carrier (APC) carry case, and many other Joe vehicles. Greg is largely known for his involvement in developing the U.S.S. Flagg Aircraft carrier and helping convince upper management to approve this massive playset! In mid-1985, he became Design Director for the G.I. Joe brand and was in this position until August, 1994.
