Standing a solid 4 inches tall, the Ram Bam figure had action features as well as poseable arms and head, thanks to 5 points of articulation.
Ram Bam was released as a member of the ThunderCats "Berserkers" sub-line which included Hammerhand, Cruncher, Top-Spinner, and Ram-Bam. All the Berserkers had a unique packaging which consisted of a backing card which was hollow in the center. The figure was placed in this cut-out section and enclosed in a clear plastic bubble from both ends. The bulky size of the Berserker figures necessitated this type of packaging.
The backing card of each Berserker featured an illustration showing the figure in action. Ram Bam's backing card featured an illustration of him zooming down a rocky hill using his chest wheel.
Interestingly, in some of the very early LJN ThunderCats toy catalogues, Ram Bam was known as "Ramrider". Later on the name was changed to Ram Bam.
1. Battle-Matic Action: Ram Bam's action feature was controlled by a rip-cord located on his back. Yanking the cord would rev up the huge wheel embedded in Ram Bam's chest, allowing the figure to speed away when placed on the ground on its chest.
2. Poseable limbs and head: The Ram Bam figure had 3 points of articulation, 2 at the shoulders, and 1 at the neck. These points allowed the figure to be posed in a variety of action poses.
