Anyone remember the Joe vs Cobra Rockslide released back in 2001-2002? It was retooled to fit the T-crotch guys who are roughly the same size as the 25th guys. If I remember right, the seat was reshaped. It came with Frostbite and he was easily one of the bulkiest of the JvsC figs... So this "new" Battle Bear just might be compatable with 25th guys if they reused the seat and etc from the J vs C Rockslide. Somebody who still owns one, pop a 25th guy in there and check it out for the rest of us.

I would get that if it actually had the "past" packaging. But it's called the "past" as in the original 80's but it's all new packaging from the 2000's. That doesn't work for me at all. Nice try though!
Rockslide with Snow Job? It's a Polar Battle Bear! Why the hell would anybody want this when it's NOT accurate?
Looking back at my childhood there is no "Rockslide". So how did it evolve?

The only thing with the then and now using the Ferret what would be the now?
Because the Snake Trax isn't really much different than the Ferret with the exception of the front winch and huge side gun.

piece a crap. not calling it the polar battle bear is bullshit
more pointless name changes so all the nostalgia is gone
and its a target exclusive, well that makes it easy for me to not give a shit
F*#K YOU HASBLOW AND YOUR TARGET EXCLUSIVES THAT EVERYBODY OUTSIDE THE US HAS PAY A SCALPER FOR JUST TO AQUIRE IT. GOOD JOB ON MAKING TOYS AVAILABLE AT RETAIL TO EVERYBODY EVERYWHERE
the ferret is my favorite cobra vehicle and i would love to see it reproduced but not in a 2 pack like this. I don't want the ROC version. the colors and the name snake traxx are lame. not to mention the stupid spring loaded launcher and the weak ass gearless scrap iron that comes with it

umm, it's just a name man, heck, the vehicle doesn't even have a stand with the incorrect name on it, once you throw away the packaging, you can call it the Winter Wilderness Weasel and it won't make it any less of a Polar Battle Bear.
As for the exclusiveness of it, just talk to someone on here who resides in the states, I'm sure you'll be able to find someone who's willing to sell it to you at cost

As Smoke stated, they re-used the name from the JvC release of the Battel Bear (named the Rockslide). It had a ginormous missile launcher on back.
At the end of the day...why are people soooooooo pissed off about a name? Can't you just call it what you want to?
Both the ARAH figure and vehicle are both accurate to their original releases....
As for who would want it? I for sure want one. IMO, it's a cool little display piece. I won't buy more than one, but it'll still be cool to have.
