GI JOE BACKBLAST Vintage Action Figure 99% COMPLETE 3 3/4 C9+ v1 1989
Blackblast (version 1) was released by Hasbro and was first released carded as part of the eighth series (1989). He was also sold in 1990 and was discontinued domestically in 1991.
Backblast came with a green two-piece missile launcher system, three red missiles, a gray knife, a black monocular, and an orange bandolier.
Backblast grew up in a house next to one of the busiest airports in the world. His bedroom was directly under the landing path of incoming jets. At night, the landing lights from descending jumbo-jets would shine through his window and the vibrations would shake the pocket-change off his dresser. When asked his job preferences upon his enlistment he answered, "Where can I go to shoot airplanes out of the sky?'
