Ran-dumb toys :: Turbo Jab Street Shark

I found this at the local thrift store and could not leave such a ridiculous toy behind:

This is 'Turbo Jab' and he is a Street Shark.

Apparently there were a few versions of a 'regular' Jab (as regular as an anthropomorphic Hammerhead can be that is) and this 'Turbo' version.

What makes him Turbo?

He transform...lays down and becomes a racecar!

And apparently a street cleaner. Lick it good, Turbo Jab!

Yeah, this is a pretty lame toy.

But I have to admit, he also has some ran-dumb charm. I suppose it helps that he's a hammerhead shark, which science has proven to be the coolest sharks around. He's also dressed like the X-Men, which is fashion mockery at it's finest but does affiliate him with Wolverine.

What do you think? Did I waste a dollar or not?

  1. I wish you could take off the wheels when he is standing up...I could see him as an Xman...LandShark!

    1. Yes, removable wheels would have improved this guy 1000%

  2. His mouth looks like one of those wind-up chattering teeth toys...except sharper and more awesome.

  3. I love him! I also love the notion that in the short run the Street Sharks had as being relevant, they had the opportunity to branch out into such oddities as this.

    1. Short run? What was it, a week and a half?
