GI JOE BLIZZARD Vintage Action Figure COMPLETE 3 3/4 C9+ v1 1988
Blizzard (version 1) was released by Hasbro and was released carded as part of the seventh series (1988). He was also sold in 1989 and discontinued domestically in 1990.
Blizzard came with a white and blue helmet, a black backpack sled, two black ice shoes, two black skis, a white machine gun, a white pistol, and two black handles that attached to the backpack.
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.
