Kenner - Jake Rockwell (Centurions)






Have been aiming for the toy for half a year. Finally decided to buy it this afternoon. This is definitely a vintage toy to me (very expensive) and the toys were released by Kenner in 1986. This is one of my "all time favourite" toys. I love the cartoon series since I was in secondary school time. Love to hear "POWER X TREME" as this is the moment when each of the operation experts were given and attached a set of their assault weapon systems. Super Cool!!

nice catch ! i saw loose figures in CSC, and tempted to buy them...i really wish they would re-do these figures using today's technology...i like his detonator..and max ray's depth charge...

Yes, same here. I like Jake's detonator and Max's depth charger..Regret to buy when I saw them at U-toys..Becos the price is very very expensive. I manage to buy Tidal Blast for Max yesterday..

Super buy! Always love Centurions when I was a kid, toys and cartoon. I guess you are not opening it..Hehe
Ted - It would be super cool to re-do the Centurions like what they did for GI joe (25th Anni) & Transformer (encore). Fingers cross for M.A.S.K!

Wow! I owned and still have this piece with me! My dad bought this for me & Max for my brother when we're kids. I still remember the price tag, RM19.90 each back then.

How much did you pay for it?

Yeahh ... they should redo it. Being the weakest part at the arm-to-sholder joint. Mine, all 4 arms broke off after undergoing some playing.

Yes, will not open it at the moment because I have loose sets for Max and Ace McCloud. I don't think Kenner will reissue because the company had closed down many years ago..

desmond said...

I paid S$70 for this and a weapon set can reach to S$100. Very EX!!! I guess this is the price on the ebay as well. In fact, more expensive than we get locally..

@Anonymous - I have some MASK vehicles too..Haha!!

I have the whole collection figures, drone strafer and traumatiser and weapon systems except for Jake's Swingshot and Max's Seabat. These 2 assault weapon systems are the rarer ones as they were release in a smaller lot of the second series.

These are hard to come by. And could very well fetch a handsome sum for complete and/or MISB.

Anyways, great buy Desmond. :)

Tom, I think you got the rarest figure in kenner centurions series..They are Traumatizers as I couldn't find them on ebay..I am glad that you are centurions fans too :)

Tom Crimson said...

Hahaha, yes traumatiser is rare too. Saw someone selling loose but complete traumatiser for SGD$200 in Ebay locally. It was snagged up within an hour, coz I was watching it.

Anyways, I got the Swingshot last 3 days. Am excited. Couldn't wait till I get my hands on them. Lol

deSMOnd said...

Can I ask if you want to sell Swingshot? It's the only one I need to complete my collection.

deSMOnd said...

Clinthammer, I don't have Swingshot and also not intend to sell anything here..

Clinthammer said...
