The Evacuator Trilogy is a trilogy of films in the 3D Universe made from 1984 to 1992, starring Jack Howitzer as Tim, a crazed ex-Marine who is recruited by the US Government periodically for various tasks such as search-and-rescue missions, working undercover as a special ed teacher, and traveling back in time.

The first two films Evacuator (1984) and Exploder: Evacuator Part II (1986) mainly focus on Tim venturing to Vietnam and Cambodia for rescue purposes and to kill Communists. The Discharger: Evacuator Part III (1986 - 1992) Is the Third and final film which little is known about, other than that there are many posters for it around San Andreas, and that it seems to feature Tim travelling back in time as an African American android with a small minigun. A separate film Special Needs Cop (1992) features a far different story, with Tim flying out of Cambodia and back to the United States early in the film to teach a pre-school for handicapped children.

The trilogy parodies trigger-happy patriotic action movies of the 1980s with muscle-bound heroes, such as Rambo, Commando, and Terminator . It also comes with its own action figure play set, though many figures and props are "sold separately," also a play on the merchandising of G.I. Joe action figures of the time, or possibly even the short-lived Rambo toy line.
