Bazooka's trainers described him as a decisive fast thinker with the instincts of a natural survivor. They must have been on to something when they saw his transfer request to Armor School. Bazooka was driving an Abrams tank as part of the Third Armored Division when he came to the realization that an iliterate farmer armed with a rocket launcher can knock out a tank.
While Bazooka has never quite projected himself to be a highly intelligent individual, he has surprised his teammates and foes alike with his strength and tenacity. Having trained on both sides of armor, Bazooka is just as much a qualified tank operator as he is an anti-armor expert. When he's not busy, he likes to engage in his passion for fishing.
The new updated Bazooka figure comes with 4 rockets that can be placed inside the Bazooka weapon. The back-pack also holds all 4 shells and has a rack to store the Bazooka Weapon.
The helmet is removable and the head sculpt is very accurate to the cartoon version. Now all we need is an Alpine!

man I thought at first this was a pass but now it seems more like a must have. The hedsculpt is good, the arms and hands are spot on. Those hands can be used for so many other figures. The backpack is spot on. This is way better than I thought from the first pics

he's inspired from the marvel comics and the sunbow cartoons (except the color of his pants, wrist bands and helmet).
let's wait to see if there will be a new alpine figure to fit in the bazooka figure just like in the cartoon show!

Bazooka wasn't a favorite of mine (came a little later), but this figure looks great. I definite must-have.

Been waiting a long time for this one!
I love the ole tank bustin' joe!
Here's to hoping Alpine is on the way!

Another great sculpt! However, it would have been even more great if it has the knee caps.
Come on Hasbro, lets pay more attention to the details.

I wish the missiles didn't fit so high up on the backpack. It looks kinda weird. Otherwise, it's a great looking figure.
Convention Tiger Sting (with or without Bazooka)
Will trade new BAT for a new SAW Viper

hey, Destro can you compare and tell if he is a torso remold of Roadblock? the non-double jointed knees are really disappointing, and he seems way too buff to me (which is why i thought he was a remold) but the head sculpt, deco and accessories are all top-notch
My 25th Most Wanted List:
