American Defense was a line of 3 3/4'' military toys sold exclusively at Kmart in the eighties. The line started with Galoob's A-Team molds and Remco grew it from there. It was later produced by different companies and ended up in dollar stores and discount outlets. Similar to GI Joe, it included a wide variety of colorful characters. However, without a cartoon, comic or any marketing to back it up, the line rode GI Joe's coattails for a while and then disappeared.

While doing research for this project and combing through dozens of pictures of American Defense toys, Yeti kept popping up. Slowly, I started thinking about how to translate him into Modern Era parts. Once I figured out the head, everything else fell into place. In fact, by using the Snow Serpent body with only a few color accents and keeping the Cobra logo on his shoulder, I imagine Yeti to be the equivalent of Skullbuster for the Range Vipers. In my Joeverse, he will become a rogue Snow Serpent/mercenary loner type. He patrols the tundra alone until Cobra Commander calls on him for special missions.
