15WILLIAM "THE FRIDGE" PERRY

gijoe-the-fridge

Remember that time the Super Bowl Shuffle took out Zartan and Dr. Mindbender? Us neither. William "The Fridge" Perry was an exclusive mail-order offer from Hasbro Direct between 1987 and 1989. Just what the Joes needed -- a Chicago Bears football player to show them how to tackle a Viper. This

was the best they could come up with? When you read his file card that states, "Using The Fridge to train the Joes is logical and practical," you can't help but furrow your brow. At least Pele could have teamed up with Quick Kick for one dope duo.

And what's with the menacing (deadly?) football on the end of a chain? Who brings a football flail to a laser gun fight? All "The Fridge" had going for him was a kind of decent code name and a very patriotic No. 72 jersey. Call us when you can intercept a missile with your bare hands and then we'll talk about putting "The Fridge" on the front line, and not on the worst figures list.
