BLAST-OFF was the best firefighter the state of Missouri had ever seen. Single-handedly, he once extinguished an entire forest fire when other firemen became incapacitated by smoke inhalation. This courageous effort of persistence and skill earned him a spot on the G.I. Joe team, but instead of putting fires out, he was assigned to light them . . . right under Cobra's butt! When it was discovered that Cobra MEGA-MONSTERS were vulnerable to flames and extreme heat, Blast-Off was issued a super-charged flamethrower and immediately assigned to the Mega-Marines team. GUNG-HO has given him only one order: to burn those monsters like marshmallows in a camp fire!
Motto: "When I blast into battle with a flame thrower and a tank full of fuel, things REALLY get hot!"
Toy Notes: Item #6932. Included red Moldable Bio-Armor similar to Play-Doh that could be formed around the figure using the mold.
