Welcome to the Outpost. Today I’m checking out another G.I.Joe driver and Mechanic. Cross-Country came on scene in 1986. I got a Havoc for Christmas that year and I still have some parts I use for battle damage because my dog chewed up some of the parts. I do have a couple complete ones now though.
Any hoot, Cross-Country the country boy from Greensboro, NC (not to be confused with Greenbow, AL) was instantly one of my favorite characters. What a unique looking figure from head to toe. I always thought his head was slightly larger than it should be and made him look more in his 40s then his 20s but outside of that I just loved the mix of colors and his uniqueness.
He has had only a couple upgrades and I think the modern one looks great but it may take me 20 years to get my hands on him. Cross-Country was great in the cartoon and I’m sure he was in the comics. Cross-Country is just one of those characters who was created and has never been duplicated. Who are my Cross-Country fans. Sound off below and let us know AFTER THE JUMP! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
