Motto: "When BIG LOB makes his move, he always shoots to score the big win!"
BIG LOB's outstanding physical prowess made him an athletic standout since elementary school. During high school, his strength, conditioning, speed and all-around toughness helped him excel in six different sports. With college scholarships lined up upon graduation, he chose to enlist in the Army Reserves to serve his country but still stay close to his hometown and family. Rumors of his outstanding sports prowess and record of precise distance grenade throws were quickly recognized by the G.I. JOE team. He joined under their "Rawhides" program, which allowed him the flexibility to only report for missions needing his specialized expertise. He is well liked by his teammates except for his annoying habit of talking about himself in the third person and using sports metaphors on every subject.
The concept of throwing grenades goes back to the "Greek Fire" used by the Byzantines, and early gunpowder bombs devised by the Chinese in the Tang Dynasty. Thirteen centuries later, more advanced and specialized versions are still an integral part of a modern soldier's ordnance. BIG LOB is exceptionally skilled at manually throwing hand grenades at specified targets and using his multi-shot grenade launcher for longer distances. He carries a full arsenal of high explosive, flechette, incendiary, chemical compounds and even smoke grenades to accomplish any mission objective.
Big Lob was available either bagged or carded.
