Here are a couple shots of the upcoming POC Snow Job - everyone's favorite red headed arctic con artist.
I know everyone has there opinions on the quality of the ROC line but I think we can all agree that the future Pursuit of Cobra line looks fantastic and this figure would certainly back that claim up. I'm not much for reviews so I'll give my $0.02 and let the pics to most of the talking.
As you can see this figure is composed of a lot of new sculpt parts and some from the ROC line (like the torso). The head is new and the goggles and hat are not removable. The vest snaps on and off on both sides of the figure and can be removed without much trouble at all. With the vest/jacket piece on the legs do have some limited range of mobility but nothing like the ROC Ice Viper. SJ can still move with the best of 'em. While some figures seem light and flimsy, this figure is rock solid and feels well made.
Of course the real prize is the accessories he comes with. Hasbro seemed to have pulled out all the stops with this line. As you can see from the shots most of the accessories have a little peg on them that fits into the corresponding hole on the backpack. You can tell Hasbro focused on the detail here and added a number of things that bring the character to life.
With figures like these, the POC line should carve out it's own niche in the hearts of Joe collectors for sure.
One thing that is kind of annoying is that I seem to be having a hard time putting the gun on the bp with the bi-pod attached. I just fit it up snug where the skis would normally go while he is wearing them. Seems to work okay and everything fits.

I guess I'm a stickler, but it bothers me when they release multiple head sculpts of the same character in the same line.
If you're going to go through the trouble of tooling up a new head, why not do it for a character we don't have a ROC figure for already?

I am really liking this guy, I don't see how you could make a better Snow Job.
He's true to the original, while at the same time has nice updates and tons of gear.
A+, loving his new gun so much more than his original laser rifle!

Ugh, the non-removable goggles kill it for me. Man, I like to see the faces of my Joes, and SJ is looking totally bad ass with that big, bushy red beard.

I love the detailing of the snow on the beard, like we've seen with the PoC Shipwreck. That's a great touch.

I want one! But I'll wait til they're out. I have a Zartan on the way, but he's one of my favorites.
