Blaster Hawk vehicle from the vintage Masters of the Universe toy line. The Blaster Hawk was a large combat vehicle employed by the Heroic Warriors. Sy-Klone described it as “one of the most important weapons in our arsenal.” It was larger than most other vehicles and named for its bird-inspired appearance and its ability to blast disk projectiles at enemies. The Blaster Hawk could be used in both ground and air combat. It was mainly utilized as a flying vehicle, despite the large treads on its base for navigating Eternia’s rugged terrain.

The Blaster Hawks were primarily used as air support in the Classics canon and were flown by the Masters of the Universe during King Randor’s reign. A squadron of Blaster Hawks led by the heroic Sky High fought a fleet of Horde Boa Jets and King Hssss’s new Snake Strike Squad during the Second Ultimate Battleground. They were not always effective, as the giant Horde cyborg Ultrabeast tore through another full squadron of Blaster Hawks during the same battle.
