First Sergeant Donnelly is a member of Captain Lennox's US Army Ranger unit, a smart-mouthed Bostonian stationed at SOCCENT Forward Operations Base in Qatar. Though as the highest-ranked enlisted man in the unit (the 'top kick', no not that one) he should really display more leadership skills, he's actually the guy that thinks we're all gonna die.

Coming back from a hard mission behind enemy lines, Lennox's men discussed what they were going to do once they got home. Donnelly asked his buddies if they remembered weekends, how enjoyable a flat beer and a cold hot dog while watching the Red Sox at Fenway was, to which they agreed, suggesting that they all wanted to go home to enjoy their weekends and not a reflection on the quality of food served at their "base" mess.
After SOCCENT was destroyed by a mysterious MH-53 Pave Low that turned into a giant robot, Donnelly expressed disbelief when Sergeant Epps theorized that the reason their small-arms fire bounced off the enemy was due to some kind of invisible force field. Donnelly scoffed, saying that sort of imaginary technology only existed in fiction such as comic books. A spooked Figueroa commented that his mother had a gift of premonition, and it was passed on to him, to which Donnelly remarked that Fig should use his magic voodoo powers to get them the hell back home.
Later that day, as they neared local boy Mahfouz's village, a tremor in the sand caused a billboard tower to come down and crash directly behind Donnelly. The oblivious sergeant asked to no one in particular what that was, prompting Fig to exclaim (in Spanish) that the tower fell over and almost killed him. Suddenly, Epps fired wildly into the sand as a large spiked metal tail sneaked up behind Lennox. Donnelly joined in as the tail revealed itself to be a huge metal scorpion that dove into the sand and out of sight. Still again, Donnelly searched the ground for signs of the creature when it
silently slid LOUDLY BLASTED out of the sand from behind (which did not, I repeat did NOT earn a reaction. Epic Fail.) and impaled him on his tail, dragging him under the sand, never to be seen again.

- This pack features a Deluxe Scorponok repainted with 'sand' paint applications on his body and comes with non-posable figurines of Sergeant Epps, Jorge Figueroa and Donnelly. They are packaged in a special window box featuring a diorama depicting the battle at Mahfouz's village. Sadly, Donnelly's figure is not in a pose very conducive to being impaled.
- The Top Trump Cards describe Donnelly as having a mind as sharp as a bear-trap. In the movie, not so much. More like as sharp as a baseball bat.
