Recently declassified documents revealed the original Oktober Guard (G.I. Joe’s Russian and Warsaw Pact equivalent) team’s “Special Mission” in Siberia to rescue their captured General from the ruthless Iron Grenadiers in OPERATION: BEAR TRAP!

ADVENTURE TEAM Box Set: Last year we left our man in the desert in the middle of the famed Paris to Dakar rally having just averted a nuclear melt down. What is M.A.R.S. up to this time? Why is there such a powerful reactor in the middle of the desert? What else will he find and is there time to thwart M.A.R.S.’s latest evil scheme? Are they still pursuing a super soldier?
