The G.I. Joe Collector’s Club revealed their latest FSS figure, Blizzard!
Blizzard led an experimental security team based at Thule, Greenland for an entire winter. Their objective was to determine what kind of training and conditioning worked best to prepare men for combat in Arctic conditions. They found that training and conditioning had little effect. Only the hardest and meanest men made it through the course, and Blizzard was the hardest and meanest of the bunch.
“The Arctic is totally unforgiving, You make one little mistake, you’ve had it. The cold makes you tired, and being tired makes you careless, and being careless makes you a statistic. Blizzard doesn’t make mistakes and doesn’t get careless; he wants to make the other guy the statistic.”
