VINDICATOR PILOT/VINDICATOR HOVERCRAFT DRIVER
Series: Six (1987)
Blaster was first released carded invidually as part of the Battleforce 2000 subset of G.I.Joe at the very end of the sixth series (1987). In 1988 he was available carded in a special two-pack with Avalanche and was discontinued the following year.
Even if they are not listed in the 1987 catalog, the Battleforce 2000 figures are considered part of the 1987 series since they made it to toy shelves in the 1987 calendar year. Be aware that some toy listings will list Blaster as having been released in 1988.
Blaster came with a green mouthpiece and a silver gun.
Birthplace: Panama City, Florida
Primary Specialty: Ground-Effect Vehicle Operator
Secondary Specialty: Microwave Technician
Blaster came carded two different ways. In late 1987, he was available carded by himself. In 1988, Blaster and Avalanche were carded together in special two-packs.
No variations of the figure itself are known to exist.
Blaster's body is completely original - all new body parts.
