Today Super7 announced a brand new ReAction vehicle set for the company’s 3.75″ G.I. Joe line. The Arctic Rescue Vehicle set is possibly one of the coolest throwbacks to a great multi-episode story from the cartoon. It is priced at $75, but no release date has been announced.
This G.I. Joe ReAction Arctic Rescue Vehicle Pack includes 3.75” articulated figures of the Blind Woodsman with rifle accessory, and Snake Eyes that glows red in the dark and comes with pistol and canister accessories. Also included are the dog sled and six sled dogs that help recover Snake Eyes from death’s door!
While escaping COBRA in the bitter cold with a canister full of radioactive crystals, the silent ninja Snake Eyes is overcome not only by the weather but the effects of the red crystals. Glowing red in the wilderness and near death, the Joe is found by an unlikely savior: a blind woodsman.
Taken back to the woodsman’s cabin, Snake Eyes recovers enough to continue his mission. However, before he goes back out into the snow, Snake Eyes takes on a new companion, Timber, the wolf.
This specific episode was called The Worms of Death. It was the third part of the overarching The M.A.S.S. Device story. Check out the G.I. Joe episode in full below. Before you even ask, yes, this version of Snake Eyes that comes with this set does glow red!
OK, from the pictures, it looks like the glow effect is more pink or purple. Either way, I’d pick it up just for the Blind Woodsman. Even with years of G.I. Joe toys being on the shelf, this heroic forest dweller never got an action figure.
What do you think of this somewhat out-of-nowhere vehicle set based on a single episode? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
