- laser pistols used by Space Rangers
The Space Rangers
had Astro Blaster holsters on their right hips.
Pursued by Velocifighters and having lost his Spiral Saber, Andros turned around and pulled his Astro Blaster
apart into two different laser pistols: the main portion was in his
right hand, and the smaller weapon which had come off the top of the
Astro Blaster was in his left.
The Astro Blasters had gold rectangle emblems on their
Firing blue laser pulses from his Astro Blaster's
dual mode, Andros destroyed both Velocifighters in huge explosions.
When Andros called for
the Spiral Saber against Ecliptor, a display from inside his helmet
appeared, with the gold
rectangle emblem at the top, "Red vs" at the bottom, "Weapon" at the
bottom of the black visor area, white icons of the Rangers' five special weapons in the visor area, with
the Spiral Saber in red; a
crosshair cursor went to the saber, then the saber was shown combined
with the Astro Blaster (what would later be named Booster Mode) with
"Alter" flashing in place of "Weapon," at which point there was an
animated illustration of Red
Ranger wielding the standard Spiral Saber.
weapons shot Ranger-colored
energy blasts when combined with the Astro Blasters in what would be
called Booster Mode for the Spiral
Saber's similar configuration.
When the five Rangers shot their Astro Blasters at giant
Ecliptor, the lasers were Ranger-colored rather than all blue.
Two successive Quadroblaster blasts, joined
by several Astro Blaster lasers from Andros,
broke off Voltage Hog's right
When the Rangers
shot their five weapons in Booster
Mode, their Ranger-colored energy
beams merged into a central point, from which a gold energy sphere
blasted Sting King, sending him
falling to Earth.
Upon leaping onto her out-of-control evilyzed Galaxy Glider after the Rangers had used an orange energy wave beam
of reverse polarization from the Astro
Megazord to remove the Evilyzer's effects
on the Delta Megazord, Ashley shot the same broad orange energy beam from
her Astro Blaster at her glider, bringing it back under control.
When the four Rangers, Ashley
absent, charged with their Astro Blasters and special weapons, they were briefly
enveloped by the cloud of alien termites which promptly chewed the
weapons to pieces: the Astro Blasters were all completely eaten, and
parts of the four special weapons were
eaten as well.
Running up, morphed Ashley was blasting Termitus, but he then blasted the
Astro Blaster from her hand; she would not be shown with it again for
the rest of the episode, leaving all five Rangers without Astro Blasters.
To hunt Carlos after
he'd turned into a Barillian
Bug monster and hidden somewhere in the Megaship, the four teens prepared their Astro Blasters, wielding them
Andros told them to make
sure their weapons were at their lowest setting, as they had to try not
to hurt Carlos.
All five Rangers
would later have Astro Blasters while morphed.
In the workbay with
with various devices at the table, Cassie was
using a gun-shaped scanner or tool on an Astro Blaster, with three other
Astro Blasters in a stand nearby.
The combined laser fire of the five Astro
Blasters destroyed the red Crocotox.
Cloaked, unmorphed Andros and Zhane both
wielded Astro Blasters in their raid on the Rebel compound, even though morphed Zhane would never possess an Astro Blaster.
While disguised as the Space Rangers, the Psycho Rangers had functioning duplicates
of the Astro Blasters.
Stunner Booster Mode shot two pink laser beams, directly blasting Psycho Pink in the cracked eyepiece.
T.J. and Zhane ran forward, blasting at Psycho Blue with their Astro Blaster and Super Silverizer ; up close,
T.J. spun through the air and slashed with the Astro Axe, and Zhane followed with a glowing slash from the Silverizer, causing Psycho Blue to fall and explode, but the Satellasers would enlarge him in
While the teens kept an
eye out for more Psycho Ranger attacks,
T.J. was at the table in the workbay examining the Spiral Saber Booster Mode, with more
Astro Blasters on the table.
Ashley had a spare Astro
Blaster in her workbay locker.
After the three teens
had located Andros and Carlos in the forcefield-encased Secret City, Alpha
came in with three blue backpacks carrying an aerial probe to find the
antenna, some detonators to destroy it, and Astro Blasters for when they
ran into trouble.
For the first and only time, Andros was actually shown fitting the Spiral Saber onto his Astro Blaster
to form the Spiral Saber Booster
from Psycho Red after upwards of a year of Space Ranger inactivity (see "1999"), Andros shot the
Psycho with his Astro Blaster while
