Motto: "If you want to know the only thing that matters anymore - just read the shirt."
OUTBACK was an instructor at both the U.S. Army's Survival School and the Jungle Warfare Training Center. Most people are intimidated by the wilderness and the complete absence of human life for miles. Not OUTBACK. Regardless of how inhospitable the location, he knows like few others how to physically and psychologically endure any conditions, over any distance and terrain, for as long as necessary, with however few resources are available. He believes that survival means you're part of the environment, not its adversary!
OUTBACK is essential personnel when the G.I. JOE team needs to handle a disaster like a zombie outbreak. His expertise allows him to both track the infected, and evade them when their numbers become overwhelming. He carries only what is useful, but if he runs out of ammo, he can improvise weapons from the environment. When food and water become scarce, he can easily live off the land. Some team members worry that he has spent too much time away from people, becoming too distant while constantly preparing for a complete breakdown of society. Now that COBRA has made zombies a reality, he will show everyone what it means to be the ultimate survivalist.
Stuart "Outback" Selkirk was available both boxed and bagged.
Stuart "Outback" Selkirk (version 8) was created using the head of Snow Job (v7) (2010), the torso, waist, arms, and upper legs of Recondo (v7) (2010), and the lower legs and feet of Duke (v42) (2010).
