OBSERVATIONS
Swooping down from the sky and skimming the surface of the base, Lady Jaye causes Flint and Duket to duck for cover, a move similar to Scarlett's in the mini-series "G.I.Joe: A Real American Hero." I wonder if making your boyfriend duck to avoid getting creamed by an airplane is a tradition among the female Joes. Also, Flint runs toward the sabotaged crane before Lady Jaye, however, she arrives before him.

While yelling at his troops that the Joes must not destroy the ion attractor, Cobra Commander looks like he mimicking one of the gestures made famous by the late US President Richard Nixon.

ERRORS
Cobra agents beside Destro are wearing arctic gear in one shot and their standard uniforms in the next shot.

Lady Jaye's pants are beige and not green while she is standing outside and watching Flint's back as he knocks out a Cobra agent.

As Snow Job drives off to shoot the Snow Cat barreling toward Lady Jaye's tent, one of the Snow Cats have gold wheels which should be inked as black.

Cutterís life jacket appears and disappears while at Joe headquarters.
