Charbroil (1989 Night Force )

Night Force Charbroil (1989)

Does a team of night operatives really need a flamethrower trooper? Wouldn’t a huge spout of flame negate all those efforts toward dark camouflage? I know, I know, it’s only a toyline.

The overall design seems like it would be more applicable to another laser trooper, with its padded upper body. The accessories are another source of oddness. …
