This is it. The entire character roster of everybody that shows up on the Technohol 13 web site, from A through Z.

the Battle Copter (Gi Joe): while the Air Commandos can get somewhere in a hurry and do so in a quiet manner, they're admittedly at the mercy of the weather somewhat.

the Battle Wagon: a large offensive vehicle, the Battle Wagon lives up to its name. It looks like a giant, oversized pickup truck with a missile launcher mounted where the bed should be.

Prowl 2 (RiD): dedicated to the memory of his hero, Prowl, Prowl 2 has strived to bring law and order to all of Cybertron, but has always felt inadequate to his idol's legacy. Of course, now that he has a serious personality disorder, one can see why...! Availability:

The R.H.I.N.O. comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Rapid Run: the middle ground between Midnight Express and Railspike, Rapid Run is a mature Autobot warrior; he's grown up, but not aged. On the other hand, he's absorbed a lot of human culture and slang, making him glib and overconfident, oddly enough. Availability:

the Retaliator: a highly advanced and somewhat customized vehicle, the Retaliator is a helicopter primarily designed with the flying style of Gi Joe pilot Updraft in mind.

General Rey: a reprogrammed clone of Serpentor himself, General Phillip A. Rey was given to the Jugglers as a secret weapon - to be used in a double cross against them at a later date. Rey decided to be his own man however, and has defeated his mental programming! Availability:

Rip It: a surly, destructive gear-head, Fredd would almost be more at home in the Dreadnoks than in the Cobra H.I.S.S. Driver corps. A one-man engine of destrction, he likes nothing more than tearing apart the things that others have created, such as cars, homes, or even national identity! Rip It comes in Classic and Saga styles!

Rogues (Modron): a nigh-perfect example of law, Mechanus is still subject to chaos. Usually introduced from without, this often results in a modron who manifests individual will, and eventually feels compelled to express it - at all costs! Availability:
Rollbar (Gi Joe): an unrepentant gear head and street 'tuner', Robert enlisted in order to play with the truly heavy gear the Army's got on hand... not to mention because he wanted to do something more important with his life. Thanks to his obsessive level of skill, Robert's managed both! Rollbar comes in Classic and Saga styles!

the R.O.C.C.: a heavily fortified tractor trailer, the R.O.C.C. (or Rolling Operations Command Center) is the latest in a long line of Gi Joe field bases.

Rumbler: a former IRS agent, Earl-Bob was 'encouraged' to enlist instead - this after he'd demolished seven government vehicles and incurred several lawsuits in the course of his 'aggressive' work to apprehend tax evaders, stamp dodgers, and moonshiners! Availability:

Ruslan: little is known about the newest recruit into the technically defunct Oktober Guard. Of course, since the Gi Joe team has been 'inactive' for some time, its quite possible that Russia assigned Ruslan to the group in an official capacity... Availability:
Rutterkin (Tanar'ri): while rutterkin are stronger and smarter than the teeming hordes of dretches and manes, they are not used in Blood War efforts. No, for reasons unknown, the rutterkin are generally shunned by their demonic fellows instead. Availability:
Salvo (Gi Joe): David is quite like to Rampart, having joined the military to indulge in his favorite hobby. The difference is that while Rampart blows things up as a part of his love for computerized gaming action, David prefers a more 'low tech' approach! Availability:
Salvo (New U): Michael Crawley is a stereotypical nerd, more interested in science than in people. When the White Event 'blessed' him with the ability to blow things up with his mind, his lack of social skills hindered his ability to mesh with fellow paranormals. Availability:
Saxon St. John: an insane genius in the employ of the Club, Saxon had developed advanced, cybernetic armor paradigm. Of course, since he could find no volunteers to undergo the surgery to tie them to the armor, Saxon had to improvise... Availability:

Sci-Fi: Seymour does everything slow; no matter how hard you try, you simply can't get the man to hurry anything along. Of course, that's what you want in someone who has to focus energy weapons onto targets a mile away: a whole lot of patience! Availability:
Scoop: with his degrees in electrical engineering and journalism, Leonard Michaels could've easily become a member of any network news team he wished to. However, he enlisted in the Army to use his skills to get at the 'real' stories out there, and documents them alongside the Gi Joe team! Scoop comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Scourge (RiD): most powerful of the Decepticons save for Galvatron himself, Scourge was originally an Autobot who was turned to evil, thanks to the power of Megatron's diabolical Spark. Of course, he gained ambition along with Megatron's evil, so watch out! Availability:
Scrap-Iron: originally just an employee of Destro's MARS corporation, Scrap-Iron joined Cobra in an effort to field test his latest armament designs. The never-ending opportunities to destroy the imperfect are simply a fringe benefit of the job! Availability:

Scuzz: abused child and general hooligan Dennis Cuzinski was on the fast track to a life of crime when the White Event cursed him by making all of his bodily fluids acidic. Naturally, this didn't help the disposition of 'Scuzz' a bit! Availability:

Secundus (Modron): the very existence of the four secundus is something few are aware of, as they only associate with the nine tertians below them - and Primus itself. Each secundus oversees four quartons (and thus, sixteen of Regulus' cogs). Availability:
Sedara: a young Mujahedin warrior with the parability of teleportation, Sedara Bakut used it to devastating effect against the Soviets. After her own father betrayed her to the enemy, she decided she was done with that war, joining Psi-force instead. Availability:
Señor Surly: after a life of abandonment and betrayal, lesser men would've descended into abject self-pity and despair. Enrique Gutierrez did no such thing however, instead becoming a college student and vigilante, and later a member of the Crazy Hate! Availability:

The Shark 9000 is a heavy duty patrol boat armed with a water cannon and a dual torpedo launcher, which can pursue an opponent on the water or - if necessary - on land for short periods! The Shark 9000 comes in Classic and Saga styles!

Shooter: leading a spiritual and charitable life outside of the military, few would guess at SFC Jodie Craig's actual Army job. A highly decorated sniper, she was one of the original members of the GI Joe team - even if they didn't even know it! Availability:
Short-Fuze: coming from two previous generations of Army guys, it was only natural that Eric would himself enlist. His natural mathematical capabilities made him a demon with a mortar, a skill which made him a candidate for the new GI Joe team! Availability:
Shrage: a former East German infantryman, Shrage was drawn into the Oktober Guard thanks to his spotless record and unique personality profile. While not big on things like 'words' or 'talking', Shrage definitely says what he means as a man of action! Availability:

Skid-Z: like Side Burn, Skid-Z is built for speed. Furthermore, he possesses incredibly accurate reflexes that allow him to handle better than any other Autobot out there, making him a great scout - when he's not obsessively participating in races... Availability:
Skidmark: Cyril seems a perfectly tempered young man with an uncanny attention for detail and propriety - at least, until you put him behind the wheel of any vehicle. That's when you meat the real Cyril, and learn why he received his curious code name! Availability:
Skids: though something of a scatterbrain and definitely slower than his fellows, Skids is definitely a valued member of the Autobot team. This because, in his role as their theoretician, he's always got some data useful against the Decepticons! Availability:

the Skystorm X-wing Chopper: a prototype, stopped-rotor aircraft, the Skystorm can take off and land like a helicopter, but its rotor can stop in mid-flight to let its jet turbines take over. This means it's a helicopter and a fighter jet at the same time! Availability:
Skystriker: Alexander Russo, the Gi Joe pilot known as Skystriker, was born to fly. His father ran a Maryland Air Force base, and he became a fighter pilot himself after watching them flying over head for so long. He's so good the Joes snatched him up for their elite Tiger Force unit! Skystriker comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Skystriker: GI Joe's first high-speed combat aircraft is a modified Grumman F-14 Tomcat. This swing-wing, super-sonic fighter jet was adopted by the Joe team after Cobra upped the ante, so to speak, when using their own high speed craft in terrorist operations. Availability:

Slythor: the bizarre alien creature known only as Slythor is one of the Manimals, expatriates of the Lunartix Empire that have found themselves in our own Milky Way galaxy. This, of course, means that Slythor drops by earth to cause mayhem every once in a while... Slythor comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Smokejumper: an amazing tactician, the high-flying Smokejumper is also rather light on armament. Since he's so focused on doing his job, the high-ups thought it a good idea to team him with the heavily armed, if not too bright Dreadwind. Oddly, this worked. Availability:
the Smoke Screen Transport: the aptly named Smoke Screen Transport looks like a combat truck, but is in fact a delivery mechanism for a small, vectored thrust spy craft that it houses. When in position, its drivers can launch the craft to spy on Cobra! Availability:
