Archive: Snow Job - Arctic Survival Specialist (Arctic Threat)

May 2, 2011

Snow Job was released in the summer of 2010 as part of the first wave of figures in the Pursuit of Cobra line. The Pursuit of Cobra line features environment-themed missions in which the G.I. Joe team pursues Cobra operatives to the ends of the earth. As part of the Arctic Threat mission theme, the G.I. Joe team breaks into a Cobra manufacturing plant--in Greenland--hiding a powerful new Cobra  technology.

Snow Job's skis, ski polls and bedroll, can be used to construct a lean-to shelter/camouflaged sniper shroud. The shelter, when combined with Snow Job's stove, pan and sniper rifle, can make survival in frigid temperatures a bit more tolerable. Then again, with the vast amount of survival gear Snow Job is equipped with, it's hard to imagine he'd be anything less than comfortable.

Nice one. Next I hope it will be blizzard or Stalker with a canoe.

I'm also hoping we eventually get a Frostbite to replace the terrible White Out figure that comes with the amazing Wolf Hound (a.k.a. Snow Cat).
