    Man, I LOVED M.A.S.K. as a kid. Such a great concept. I had a bunch of them. The Rhino semi truck, Boulder Hill Playset, Switchblade copter/jet, Condor and Piranha cycles. These things were just a ton of fun.

    Oh, and the theme to the cartoon was arguably in toe top five of 80's cartoon intros.

    I had a few of these. I don't really remember much at all about the cartoon itself. I'll have to check Amazon for it.

    I'm more a fan of the cartoon than the figures, in fact I picked up a couple for the first time at a toy fair last year.

    Amazing that it's been this long. I feel old.

    I had most of the toys as a kid. Still looking for a few Split Seconds to complete my collection.

    Yeah, Matt's brother invented the original masks & vehicles, Miles stole some of the blueprints and destroyed the lab in an effort to cover his tracks, and the resulting fire claimed Matt's brother's life. There's a couple of versions of the story. It was in the minicomics that came with the first few toys, and the UK comic also had a similar origin story.

    No, I don't think Matt Trakker was ever married. He adopted his son Scott.

    I didn't either, until fairly recently. There's only 3 issues, and they're really small - compared to the MOTU minicomics, they're about half the size.

    Here are some pics of the flashback scene from issue 1:

    I pretty much had everything in the first few years, but I stopped collecting when the line went to Split Seconds.

    The motorcycles were some of the coolest vehicles. I was transforming them back and forth when I was younger. I also liked Raven, Manta and Thunderbird.

    You mean the Thunder hawk. I only had back in the day The Piranha and the Condor. those were the only ones. Thanks to ebay decades later I have the volcano, The Piranha, the Raven the Stinger, the Hurricane and The Slingshot. I had the Stilletto but I sold it a few years ago.

    Would it be possible to have a Rhino in G.I.Joe 3 3/4 scale? That would be awesome (If done by Michael Bay in a movie it would be a flat cab over truck instead, of course, just to #!$$ 0%% some fans)
    Although, based on the concept art shown for shared movie universe they shall have some sort of Speed Racer/Hot Wheels cars

    never had a M.A.S.K. vehicle/playset but wish I could 30 years later
    it's time for revenge lol!
    I really see a lot of similarities with sunbow GI.JOE. but Cobra > V.E.N.O.M to me

    I'm such a fan of the cartoon series anyway, bought the complete dvd set last year so yeah, I just used to watch it on re-runs in local stations next to he-man filmation and voltron, wow good memories here, such a nostalgia trip

    Absolutely. Silverhawks was another fav theme song of mine.

    Yep, saw some of the said concept art but I hope they pay homage to the original designs. I had Gator as a kid and I loved it. Giving them a Speed Racer or Hot Wheels vibe isn't right. They were like the Transformers/G.I Joe hybrid.

    Considering the goofy silliness/Awesomeness of GI Joe... I wouldn't even call it a hybrid. it fits RIGHT in there alongside the Pogo Jets, Air Chariots, and hanggliders...

    I didnt' have very many of them. I had the motorcycle/helicopter. the Helicopter/Jet, and the motorcycle/submarine... which THAT one always seemed a pretty weak concept. Not really a fan of vehicles that split up... then have to return to the same spot in order to retrieve it's parts...

    Looking at YOU MOTU Blasterhawk...


    Loved the look and the playability... HATED the little tiny helmets and seemed to lose them IMMEDIATELY... Always wanted that main car/jet. Always a fan of pop up doors

    I always like the idea of

    I saw that concept art, and I really didn't like it.

    I hope they get a director who understands that the primary appeal of the series is that it featured high-tech gadget-laden vehicles disguised as everyday modern cars, very much like the James Bond series Aston Martin & Lotus Esprit.

    The tagline of the series was "Illusion is the ultimate weapon", and the MASK and VENOM teams are supposed to be able to blend in, hiding a vehicle with the capabilities of a tank or a jet fighter in plain sight. Setting the film in the future and/or using futuristic-looking vehicles is completely the wrong way to go.

    Hmmm…

    The article sounds good, the only thing that i didn´t like is the expression:

    ...infusing it with slightly more modern sensibilities. This is where sophisticated stories meet cutting edge designs...
    Not exactly sure what it means
