    BlasterHawk vintage vehicle review thread

    Well, it's the middle of Summer, everyone is outside, and I'm not getting onto the forum much at the moment. So I thought I'd stick this, what'll probably be a quiet review thread, in now.

    This weeks it's the turn of the BlasterHawk.

    BlasterHawk is a vehicle that can be removed from it's base and held like a toy gun. A figure can be mounted on top, and a pull of the trigger fires its disks.

    I have several complete sets of the figures, as well as most vehicles, but BlasterHawk is one that I only have in incomplete and beaten-up state. It's one of the less common vehicles to find on the second hand market. (I could track one down, but haven't seen one at the right price yet).

    As a toy it's quite good, and I like how it can effectivley double as two different things - a vehicle and a toy gun.

    Obviously too late for the Filmation series... No 200x revamp... boy this is an unusually short review!

    I don't really have much experience of the BlasterHawk, but as a simply good toy, I'll give it an average 7 out of 10.

    So there is my uncommonly brief review. Now I'd like to hear your thoughts, comments, and everything on the BlasterHawk. And whether you post or not, don't forget to rate the toy in the poll!

    I always thought the BlasterHawk was a really cool MOTU toy. I mean the thing launched projectile disks...what's not to love. I give it a score of 8 out of 10.

    The link isn't working.

    I never saw this vehicle as a kid, so can't really judge it.

    Indeed a short review. I want to add that the top part (the gun part) can be mounted on the highest tower of the Eternia Playset. The laser canon from Eternia can be removed from it's base the same way as the Blaster Hawk can be removed from it's tank wheels base. I actually won the laser cannon with base the other day from ebay, so I'm stoked to switch it with my Blaster Hawk. Maybe someone could add some pics.

    As for the vehicle itself, I own an incomplete one since last year. It has everything but the 8 discs. I gave it a 5/10. I don't really like the design. But I think the missing discs spoil most of the fun so 7/10 would be apropriate if I had the discs.

    I still have mine in good condition since a kid and I have awesome memories playing with this toy! The reason I only gave 9 is because mine was packaged with no stickers But it was till fantastic.
    Blaster Hawk had many appearances in the uk comics and at least one in the minicomics maybe Eternia- the ultimate battleground

    Bought mine MIB on clearance in the dying days of Caldors, some kind of purple-sticker-super-extra-clearance special. Got the Fright Fighter the same way. Both had languished in that store, one of each, literally for years.

    I was waaaay past MOTU at the time of the purchases, so Shredder mostly flew around in the Fright Fighter, and I don't recall who drove the Blaster Hawk, but I was ENDLESSLY amused by both toys. WONDERFULLY designed, tons of play value.

    10/10 just for the havoc you could wreak among the Evil Warriors with the disk throwing part.

    I give it a 10. The 1986 line really started to show the switch in themes for the line. by that I mean the switch from magic/sorcery to Sci-Fi.

    Well, I was out of town visiting my folks last week, and dug through some boxes with some of my old toys that had been packed away. I found the excellent 1986 MOTU Blasterhawk vehicle, and it was still in relatively decent shape & still worked. Great toy! I remember having a great time with this as a kid; it could shoot those orange disks & I used it to knock over figures. Great memories. The disks were light enough that when you shot them, they would almost "float" on air & could go a long distance as a result.

    This is actually the only vintage MOTU toy I still have (my figures & other vehicles are long gone).

    The only thing it appeared to be missing was 1-2 of the oval orange disks. I think it had 8 originally, and I now only have 6-7.
