|Pretty common request around this forum
Actually it was a 70's series
Battle of the Planets (78)
a.k.a. Eagle Riders
Five young heroes Leader Mark (a.k.a. Ken), Hot headed Marksman-Jason (a.k.a. Joe), the muscle of the team and pilot-Tiny (a.k.a. Ryu), agile timed explosives expert and Mark's mild love interest Princess (June), and bio-engineered boy-Keyop (a.k.a. Jin-pei) form a superskilled strike team whose mission was to defend the Earth and allied planets from Spectra's evil forces led by Zoltar.
Mark had two boomerang type blades. Jason had a pistol. Princess had an exploding yo-yo. Keyop had a bolo, and Tiny fought using his brute strength.
Each episode Spectra would send a giant robotic monster to lay waste to a city to prepare it for conquest, and G-Force would be sent from their crescent shaped island secret base to meet the challenge. Each would arrive driving their own vehicle that would attach to the main ship
Mark the leader had a plane. Jason the second in command had a formula one car. Princess had the motorcycle, Keyops had some sort of submersible crawler, and Tiny flew the main ship.
When the team was outnumbered in hand to hand combat they could form a pyramid(cheerleader style) and twirl until they created a whirlwind. The raging whirlwind would knock anything flat within range.
When they were in a dire situation while in their ship the Phoenix, their last resort would be the Firey Phoenix. They'd push the ship's fusion engines past their breaking point and the entire ship would transform into an invincible fiery bird made of plasma.
