GI JOE BLANKA Vintage Action Figure Street Fighter 2 COMPLETE 3 3/4 C9+ v1 1993
Blanka (version 1) was releaded by Hasbro and was released carded in the twelfth series (1993) as part of Capcom's Street Fighter 2 subset. The Street Fighter 2 figures were numbered 1 through 12 - Blanka was number 5.
Blanka came with two purple rifles, a purple knife, an orange missile launcher (spring loaded, actually fired), two purple missiles, a black grappling hook, a black string, and a purple figure stand.
Very little is known about this bizarre fighter from the jungles of Brazil. For years, the natives have reported seeing a half-man, half-beast roaming the rain forests. But, it was only within the last year, that the beast named Blanka appeared in the cities of Brazil and challenged any fighter who would dare oppose him. Normally passive and docile, when enraged Blanka attacks like an uncaged animal. Blanka uses his speed and agility to inflict maximum damage on his opponents. He often uses his claws and razor sharp teeth to shred his opponents into small pieces.
