It was equipped with a camera at the front as well as a claw-like device for grabbing things
It even has a long oxygen hose with a face mask that allows GI Joe to maneuver around outside the sub. The dome-shaped clear capsule cover is really a nice touch and what makes this sub one-of-a-kind.
What has to be arguably one of the best of all the Adventure Team animals - the giant squid! Although I must say I quite like the 1/6 sled dogs from the GI Joe Rescue of the Lost Squadron set (see my post here)
Although only a few inches in length, the cephalopod posed a clear threat to GI Joe and his Sea Wolf sub as its powerful tentacles could crush the clear canopy and send him to his watery grave. Like all other cephalopods, squids have a distinct head, bilateral symmetry, a mantle and arms. Squid, like cuttlefish, have eight arms and two tentacles arranged in pairs.
I always think that's what happens when researchers search for all these sea monsters, including the Loch Ness monster known as "Nessie". They are just not looking in the right places.
Here's good old joe surfacing after a long day's dive and fruitless futile search for the giant squid! On April 1, 2003 the popular press was first alerted to the Colossal Squid, a.k.a. Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni, although this species has been known to the scientific community since 1925, after it was described from two arm (brachial) crowns recovered from sperm whale stomachs (Robson 1925).
"Man, that was hard work. Now for some nice cold beer!"
