Forgotten Figures – 1995 Sea Wolf

The great folks over at Forgotten Figures have posted a nice article detailing one particularly forgotten vehicle from 1995.

The vehicle in question is the Sea Wolf, an arctic repaint of the original 1984 G.I. Joe Whale Hovercraft.

It’s always amazing to see these ideas from Hasbro that never came to fruition, but when it’s something like this, it’s also quite frustrating, considering the place the Whale has in the hearts of many collectors and fans.
