Silver Hawks were undoubtably the coolest toy to come out of the eighties. Quicksilver was the leader, and despite the fact most of them could fly in space, they rode around in a space ship with the only member of the group without wings.
The coolest thing about Silver Hawks was that in the cartoon they could swipe their hand across their face and a mask would come down so that they could breath. The toys had no such masks, which dissapointed and angered me, so I improvised with aluminum foil. This tended to scratch the shiny paint on the figures. Partly metal, partly real!
