The o-ring of nozzle to my Power Pak came off a lot and then the forward section of plastic came off two years ago. When I tried to fix it with super glue (foolish me), the part that goes in to load water from the QFD got stuck and that was the end of my Power Pak. When it broke, the hose connection's plastic was a bit cracked. I should've kept it because I found a replacemnet pistol section on Hasbro.com earlier this year.

Well, I just won a Brand new in box Power Pak for 20 bucks AU (approximately $14 US) on ebay. I think that's a pretty good price. I guess I'd better take care of it since they're so hard to come by these days.

I've seen a Powerpak die once. The part that connected the tube to the backpack exploded. It probably was one of the coolest mechanical defects I have ever seen. :goofy:

That's happened to three of my SSSCPPs. I just ordered new hose-to-backpack attachments from Hasbro when that happened. Very easy to repair.

I had a few friends back in Maryland, when I lived in a town house near Baltimore, not Sykesville. Anyways he had one of these, The Batman Soaker. I got to play with it, it is just a model Replica of the Batman Forever Vehicle Batman drives int he movie (1995 I think), and it shoots water out of the back, and I think maybe a few other places, I cant remember. :cool:

there are a few "priceless" ones that are quite rare that I value quite highly: GI Joe Soakers, Water Balloon Flingers, Jurassic Park Soaker Backpack, Camoflage SS 50, Inflatable Rider, etc.

the inflatable rider insn't valuable! is it?
