Please help me welcome Iceberg as the very first snow specialist to join the ranks of my collection! I’ve been purposely staying away from ANY vintage figure or vehicle containing white plastic due to my inexperience restoring white plastic, heck, I didn’t even know if it could actually be done. As you can tell from the entry “Fun with Chemicals”, were off to a good start restoring white plastic figures.
One afternoon, like I had many times before, I took a bike ride to the local Toys R Us On Sherman Way and Woodley Ave, and came across Iceberg sitting on a peg and the fact that he was different color than the other Joes, immediately drew my attention. A short while later I was at home with my brand new snow trooper.
After many adventure in the backyard, Iceberg had the distinction of being the dirtiest GI Joe in my collection. Growing up in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California, we didn’t really see a lot of Snow, in fact, none. And hence, Iceberg had no choice but to roll around with the rest of my Joes in my backyard. My very muddy backyard.
Unfortunately, I never owned any snow vehicles so my Iceberg figure had to ride around on an old beat up Recon Sled. I don’t quite recall what figure it was, but I remember getting a new Joe that inherited the Recon Sled and poor Iceberg got bumped down to riding in an old Luke Skywalker Landspeeder from the Star Wars line!
Thanks for joining me for a tenth time for a figure profile, be here for number eleven won’t you? C’ya then!
