Jackhammer


Information about Jackhammer


Jackhammer is a vehicle from VENOM. Jackhammer is a black Ford Bronco that turns into a four-wheel assault vehicle.

The toy featured Cliff Dagger with his Torch mask. In the first wave of toys, in the US, the short (short) versions of the mask was there, from the second wave the long (long) versions. From the boxes you can see which version was in which box. See further down.

In the first wave of toys Thunderhawk was not yet licensed as a Bronco, but simply a 4x4. It was not until the second wave that it officially became a Bronco.

Jackhammer's toy came with licensed "Goodyear" rubber tires.

Unlike the vehicles from Team MASK, where the design is very colorful, Jackhammer is kept in plain black, with few chrome parts. Only the rims and the radiator grille are chromed.

The Ford Bronco has an off-road package, with higher suspension.

The transformation consists of two parts. According to the transformation in the cartoon, the front part is transformed first. For this, you push the hood back towards the windshield and over it. This creates a protective shield. At the same time, the radiator grille folds down and exposes 2 laser weapons.
Now the rear bumper is pushed down and the turret goes up. Finally, the seat of the turret has to be fold out. In the process, the turret's two laser cannons also extend. Under the turret is the air defense weapon, this is simply plugged into the appropriate hole on the turret.

In addition, the doors can be opened.

When Jackhammer is pushed, the laser weapons on the grille move forward and backward, giving the impression that they are firing.

There were 7 stickers that had to be attached.

Differences of the US boxes first toyline

That there were short and long masks from the MASK first toy series, every collector knows. But how can you tell if there are short or long masks in sealed boxes? The 1st and 2nd wave had small but fine details on the boxes, by which you can tell. James Mason posted interesting details on Facebook. Attached are the differences for the Jackhammer boxes.

Differences of the boxes

The boxes had some differences in different countries, even within the same country. In the same country there were changes in different years.
The EU boxes are completely different from the boxes from the other countries. So you have no back on which the toy is explained, it is just the same site as the front, only with different languages. You can see this in the boxes section. All other differences follow now. Attached are the differences for the Jackhammer boxes.

US Box

The artwork of the box also differs from the EU box from Jackhammer. The colors look more matte, the metal is less shiny. Through Lance Anderson we know that the boxes were redesigned for the European market. A different airbrush artist was at work here than on the EU box. Jackhammer has gray decals on the US box, none in purple, the tank nozzle is missing on the US box.
