It all started with an innocent and kind gesture on the part of my friend to give me his box of old toys.
In there I found Jack Rockwell and his Fireforce weapon system intact and in good shape.
Jack Rockwell was my favourite and only Centurions back when I was a child.
Because of this one figure, many fond memories came rushing back and I started buying back the Centurions toys.
My first purchase was getting all the basic figures and I was lucky to get it all in one bulk purchase.
However I was still not satisfied. I wanted the Centurions toys that I could not have when I was a child.
And what was those toys you might ask...well it is all the weapon system of Jack Rockwell!
I am pleased to say mission accomplished and I am a HAPPY Man! ( i am excluding Swingshot because when it was launched I had already lost interest in the Centurions...)
Wild Weasel consists of a two-wheeled, stabilizer assisted drive mechanism that can be used in a vertical or horizontal position. It has 2 land lasers, directed by a turret-mounted target locator. The frontal armor is heavily enforced hence it is sometimes used as a mobile battering ram.
In vertical position, Wild Weasel looks extremely cool and reminds me of the light cycle in the movie Tron!
The Hornet is a stand out weapon system because Jack is a land operation specialist and yet he gets a helicopter as his weapon system.
The system composed of a helicopter backpack mechanism with an integrated protective canopy. At its side it has a set of 2 sonic thrusters and 2 landing skids...basically a human helicopter.
For weapons, the Hornet has a nose mounted laser gun , a rotating chest-mounted cannon and 4 sidewinder missiles...real heavy duty weapons.
My all time favourite weapon system is in Jack's arsenal.
The bad ass heavy duty Detonator!
It has chest-mounted tandem freeze ray blaster and two super big splicer missiles, mounted on a mobile artillery platform.
The heavy system is distributed and supported by 2 leg mounted stabilizer status.
In addition to all that firepower, there is still a set of sonic ray gun with a 360 degree swivel mounted at the top of Detonator.
It is not called Detonator for nothing!
