Major Powers and the Star Squad: Captain Deep Dive Decker
By Playskool
With R Hunter

Click on the pictures for larger versions

Indoctrination of the youth is afoot! Hasbro has found a way to market psuedo-military characters to the kids too young for GI Joe! Playskool's Major Powers lines let those ninny Rescue Heroes fix stuff while Major Powers and the Star Squad blow stuff up with power gauntlets.

I picked up the Star Squad Adventure Boat w/Captian Deep Dive Decker because I was heading to Block Island and I figured he'd fit into the surroundings perfectly. The boat is well made and could easily work with Rescue hHros or smaller Joes. The power gauntlet feature is cool and nearly hidden in the package. A small magnet is in the palm of the hand (Strong though unlike Hasbro's crappy Star Wars magnets that buckle trying to lift steel lint) and when it's placed over a lever, the back hydrofoil snaps up.

Click hereDecker himself (obviously the name is a homage to Ridley Scott's tortured hero of Blade Runner) looks like a lobotomized Vin Diesel or just regular Vin Diesel if you think about it. He has ball jointed shoulders, twists at the wrist and neck and standard U-Crotch movement (just like regular Vin Diesel if you think about it).

He's sturdy as hell and can take a beating. Verbal abuse had little effect as well and he seemed oblivious to the remarks we made about his childhood Jazz/Tap/Ballet classes.

Click hereThe only problem was the scuba mask and tubes. With a little nudging they can be stuffed under the bottom portion of the rebreather but over time it effects how well they sit on the face. How well it sits on the face... Yeah okay not like that.

Enjoy the rest of the pics below, I used Plan B Toys' Special Forces sea mine and Kaiyodo Neon Genesis Philcollinsion Eva 1 SOCOM pistol to spice him up a bit.

All in All a well made, fun toy. If you area fan of Playskool's run on Jurassic Park and Star Wars toys, you'll love these figures.
