Cold Front (1990)
Keeping with a figure focus on arctic operatives, here’s Cold Front, and he strikes me as one of those Joe figures you only sort of remember. And that’s a shame, as the figure is very interesting.
I must confess that my figure is incomplete. That teensy tiny microphone was missing from the version I acquired years ago, and I’ve never come across the part for sale by itself. I wonder if it will become the Heavy Metal mic of the 90s generation of Joe fans. Cold Front doesn’t quite look right without it, with a prominent hole next to his visor. Speaking of which, that piece of clear yellow plastic is quite fragile, if the visor comes out.
He’s not as clunky as some of the other members of the team (his outfit is symmetrical, for one) but his attire and weapon look futuristic enough to fall in with the Battle Force 2000 vehicle driver crew. Then again, maybe it’s just the though-high boots that get me thinking in that direction.
