With FREE Manta upgrade kit!
Venom always got hard done by. They’re outnumbered, and every dastardly plan Miles comes up with is thwarted by Matt who happens to be on a philanthropic mission to that exact place in the world, every single time. What are the chances? VENOM need to remain mobile, and to fulfill that need for a base along came the MIGHTY Outlaw.
So you own an Outlaw? You’re so lucky. In my view the best toy in the line. (Sorry, Rhino fans!). I’ve cherished my Outlaw for more than 30 years. But like Boulder Hill it seemed slightly lacking in decals.
MASK also had Boulder Hill as their secret headquarters, and you’re aware I’ve produced a sticker upgrade kit for that station. I really appreciate the support of those of you that have chosen to buy one.
So now I’ve done the same for Outlaw.
This is the culmination of almost a year’s work around a busy job and a young family. I set about with the mission to properly upgrade Outlaw, and equip it with everything a good baddy base might need, whilst not going crazy and keeping to the original 80’s look of the vehicle and equipment. Gotta love those reel-to-reel computers!
It answers questions like –
What do the VENOM team do to relax?
How do they get up and down to that operations platform?
How do they build and load the GIGANTIC Poison Pod shells into that huge cannon?
Where do they charge their masks?
And many more…
Please note I sell an internal Outlaw kit, an external Outlaw kit, and them both together. The reason I do this is because I did the external-only kit first (which you cut out yourself ) and quite a few people bought them already, so they may not want to buy them again. Thus you can buy separately or together.
Please refresh this page so you have the latest version of the instructions.
If you’ve got them both at the same time, do the inside first, and be very careful removing the main tank body off it’s hinge.
It’s YOUR Outlaw, and as such all stickers are optional.
And so we begin.

There are two VENOM decals remaining on a black background, and you can put these wherever you like. Maybe one under the grapple gun at the front of the cab?

Please note if you mess up I am unable to provide free replacements it will always try and help. The art and printing is professionally done but as a hobby project and I will only send out sheets I feel meet the standard your Boulder Hill deserves. I do have some spares though, and if you contact me crying because you dropped your bar and dartboard into your fish tank I will try and help subject to you covering the postage. I’ll only supply spares to folk who’ve bought a full kit.
At this time the Manta upgrade kit is only available as a freebee with the Outlaw internal stickers.
Do you have suggestions for other kits I should make?
You can contact me by email, my Riverglade.guru facebook page, my Creature & Animal facebook page or the MASK facebook groups here or here or here if you have any questions or feedback. I’d love to know what you think!
This kit is unofficial, made by a fan for fans. I am not associated with Kenner, Mattel, Hasbro or anyone else! Although if they were smart they’d offer me a job! 🙂
