Battle Ram 1982 Vintage Masters of the Universe Vehicle
Battle Ram Vehicle from the vintage Masters of the Universe toy line.
From its earliest appearances, the Battle Ram was a nigh-unstoppable war machine used by the Heroic Warriors in their battles against Skeletor’s forces. It had thick wheels that allowed it to move over the rocky Eternian terrain. The Battle Ram was so named for its ability to fire devastating battering ram missiles. The Battle Ram was designed with a blue color and a griffin-like head as its figurehead. The front end could detach and become a Sky Sled, an air vehicle with a mounted laser cannon beneath the griffin figurehead. In the earliest stories, the Sky Sled featured a space-warp device which allowed it and its rider to “vanish and reappear somewhere else.”
The Battle Ram’s animation appearance was faithful to its toy and minicomic design as a large land vehicle that could separate into two sections. The rear was the large ram-launching portion that could fire a ram beam capable of smashing through a general force field, although it was not strong enough to penetrate the magical force field created by the Dragonpearl. The front portion of the Battle Ram was the Sky Sled, which could detach from the rear part and take flight.
