Special Teams

About one third of figures released are members of a special group identified as an ally, enemy, or subgroup of the Joe or Cobra organizations. Some of these groups, such as Tiger Force and the Iron Grenadiers, are ongoing while others, such as Special Mission: Brazil, appear to be called together for a single assignment. Take note of the overlap; most of the major characters in the Joe universe have been members of more than one special team.
