    Rio Blast was cool. Maybe a little bit out of place on Eternia.

    A very cool figure who was armed to the teeth.I liked how they incorporated all of his guns giving him a robotic type of feel.

    I thought Rio-Blast was cool figure; a neat idea for a gimmick, executed very well. I got him when I was a kid, and thought he was pretty nifty then, too. I;m hoping they consider him for MOTUC, but due to all the new tooling he'd take, I don't know what his chances are (maybe if MOTUC moves to major retailers when the movie comes out). Rio-Blast may seem a little out of place to some, but I think he just shows that MOTU can encompass a wide variety of different characters. I gave him a 9 out of 10.

    He is a tad too earthly looking,
    but a cool figure nonetheless.
    I had him as a kid, and I always
    liked how he, in full battlemode,
    fitted my hand perfectly.

    7/10

    But I am calm and without fear,

    Rio Blast is the CLINT EASTWOOD of the MOTU universe!

    I only got Rio Blast this year and I think hes incredibly cool!

    After years of hearing fans slam him, it was a great surprise to see how great he really is!

    9 for me

    I always loved Rio Blast ! He had a totally different sculpt and had a bunch of new features. The only downfall was that he couldn't use any of the melee weapons. I really like the minicomic as well.

    I remember finding my figure at the Belgian coast at a unexpected moment. My figure had a glossy look while my neighbour had a Rio Blast with a shiny look.

    I gave Rio 9/10.

    I would have loved to own Rio Blast as a kid . I think he was the best figure of wave 5 . All those guns hidden on him . Wow i never realized the possible Brave Starr connection .

    9/10- the only thing this awesome figure was missing was a better face/hairstyle, and we'll be getting that in a month or two!
