G.I. Joe 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry)
In 2001, Hasbro released this 1/6 scale 12-inch 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry) Snow Trooper complete with PASGT(Personal Armor System, Ground Troops) helmet with white winter snow camouflage cloth cover, Woodlands camouflage BDU (Battle Dress Uniform - an oxymoron, if you will), white parka, gloves and trousers, ALICE (All-purpose Lightweight Individual Carrying Equipment) LC-2 Y-harness with ammo pouches, water canteens, M9 bayonet with scabbard, gas mask and carrier, M4A1 Carbine with AN/PEQ-2 laser aiming device and M68 Aimpoint CQB (Close Quarter Battle) sight, cold weather overboots, skis and ski poles.
I added the shades - thought it made him look cooler PLUS to prevent snow blindness
Replaced the boots with Dragon's - much NICER
Gas Mask carrier has a gas mask inside - not always so for many figures, usually just a padded bag
His skis for getting him around quicker in the snow. Snow shoes are okay but you can't go very far in those.
This is the modern version of Hasbro's Ski Patrol set originally released in 1966 (see previous post)
