Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Snow Storm was never animated.

Headcanon

Born October 4, 1961. Snow Storm's family immigrated to the United States when he was ten years old, and he resided in the Virgin Islands until joining the Joe Team in September 1988, with his appearance represented by Version 3. He was with the team until it was disbanded in December 1989 but was not recalled when the Joes were reactivated in 1991.

Figure Releases

Versions: 1. 1993/I (Battle Corps orange) 2. 1993/II (Battle Corps blue) 3. 1994 (Battle Corps grey)
Version 1: 1993 Battle Corps Wave 1 carded assortment, #12
Fig. #0360: High-tech Snow TrooperMOS 1: Arctic Warfare
MOS 2: Cold Weather Survival Instructor
  • head: Snow Storm (93/I, 93/II, 94)
  • arms: Snow Storm (93/I, 93/II, 94)
  • torso: Snow Storm (93/I, 93/II, 94)
  • waist: Snow Storm (93/I, 93/II, 94)
  • legs: Snow Storm (93/I, 93/II, 94)

SNOW STORM was recruited for the G.I. Joe team after COLONEL COURAGE saw him defeat an entire band of hostile revolutionaries who were trying to infiltrate a peaceful Caribbean village. Snow Storm accepted the Joe's offer but disliked his first assignment: trying to stop Cobra Vipers from attacking a science station at the north pole. He wasn't afraid of the Vipers; he just hated the cold! Nevertheless, he accomplished this frigid mission (and many others) with great success. After being given a customized, high-tech thermal suit to wear, he agreed to stay in the Arctic where he functions so well at pulverizing Cobra!
Motto: "If only I wasn't so good at my job, maybe I'd get assigned somewhere SOUTH of the equator!"
Toy Notes: Item #6779. Originally intended to be part of the canceled 1993 assortment of Eco-Warriors. Note that Snow Storm's motto makes no sense geographically.
