In my neck of the woods the weather people are calling for a massive ice and snow storm for the next three days. I started to worry for a bit to be quite honest until I realized that I should just do like I did in my youth, get on the horn with G.I. Joe and have them send in the Snow Cat to navigate the treacherous terrain…if Frostbite could bring me a cup of hot coca at the same time so much the better.

Now back in the day the Snow Cat was a vehicle I wanted desperately and I still claim to this day that it looks awesome. Maybe I am gullible but it makes perfect sense to me that an arctic based vehicle would have missiles…attached to skis…I can get behind that logic. Don’t judge me.
I didn’t receive Frostbite or the Snow Cat when it first came out but thankfully a few years later I was able to trade my G.I. Joe Bridge Layer or the Toss ‘N Cross as it was more commonly called for a Snow Cat, though I kept my Tollbooth action figure (Hey, he carried a sledgehammer into battle!) and my friend kept his Frostbite.
A big thanks to the always impressive YoJoe.Com for the box art you see up top as well as the tech blue print.
