Packaging Information

Filecard Information

File Name: Rostoff, Grigori Ivanovich
Grade: Sergeant (Serzhant)
Birthplace: Archangel, Russia SSR
Primary Specialty: Air Assault
Motto: "You G.I. Joes! Airborne troops afraid to fall without parachutes! No guts!"

BIG BEAR grew up in a place where the conditions are cold, wet, and nasty - everyday! He can be meaner than a Siberian wolf with its leg caught in a steel trap and wilder than a Murmansk fur merchant. Transferred from the elite 103rd Guards Air Assault Division, Big Bear's main gripe about the Oktober Guard was the constant reference to it as the Soviet Union's counterpart of G.I. Joe! He would snap back stating, "G.I. Joes - OUR counterparts!" Big Bear enjoys rumbling into battle behind the wheels of the infamous G.I. Joe Attack Cruiser and Badger!
