WARRIOR: HOVERING ASSAULT LAUNCHING ENVOY
Series: Three (1984)
The Hovercraft Killer W.H.A.L.E. [Warrior: Hovering Assault Launch Envoy] was first released boxed in U.S. toy stores in 1984. It included the pilot, Cutter. The Killer W.H.A.L.E. was also sold in 1985 and was discontinued in 1986.
In 1992 and 1993, the Killer W.H.A.L.E. (without driver) was available as a mail-in offer from Hasbro Direct.
Driver/Pilot: CUTTER (v1)
Easily Broken/Lost Pieces
The Killer W.H.A.L.E. included numerous pieces that were easily lost or broken. They include the white rockets, the depth charges, the steering flaps on both fans, the recon bike, and the sled.
The landing ramp for the one-man sled was changed several times. The first version of the Killer W.H.A.L.E. had a solid door - this version may not have reached stores and may only have been seen in prototypes and publicity photos. The next version featured a large notch at the top of the launch door but still had a problem with breaking. A third design was used with the Night Striker and with mail-in versions of the Killer W.H.A.L.E.
