Motto: "You got the mission, I got the time."

Blizzard joined the G.I. Joe team before its closure by the government. His experience as an Arctic Instructor made him the man to train under. To survive his kind of warfare, you not only have to worry about the enemy, but the unforgiving cold weather. Blizzard is as tough as the combat conditions. His methods may seem rough, but the troops either qualify, or face the consequences. His claim to fame was after he led an experimental program that lasted an entire winter. It was the worst place he could find, and he loved every minute of it. He spends more time hanging out with the wildlife, as if he likes the company of polar bears rather than humans. Some might say his personality is a lot nastier. When the G.I. Joe program re-organized, Blizzard formed the Arctic Unit, and hand picked the soldiers he thought deserved to work alongside him. You have to give him respect, and plenty of room for his ego. We are all just happy he is on our side.

From General Hawk's Files: "I compare Blizzard to a polar bear with an attitude problem. He's got the experience, and performs well under the arctic conditions. He doesn't work well with others, but this saving grace is his service record. Give him a mission with extreme circumstances, and he will pull through - no questions asked. We needed somebody tough enough to handle the Arctic UNit, guess who was number one on the list. I may get complaints from his teammates, but they respect him and that's what counts."

Body Construction

Blizzard (version 2) is a complete repaint made from the 1993 version of Frostbite (version 3).

Blizzard (version 2) was supposed to be a repaint of Blizzard (version 1) from 1988 - but at the last minute, Hasbro used the mold from Frostbite (version 3) to create this figure.
