M.A.S.K.

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

Ah... M.A.S.K.! Next to Lego and Transformers, my biggest toy crush. And I am glad to say that I have a complete M.A.S.K. vehicles collection, all complete including figures, masks and accessories! I was always careful with my MASK collection, so they are all in excellent condition and many are still in box. Some of my favorite vehicles are Switchbade (helicopter - jetplane), Goliath (racecar+transport - highrise missilelauncher+jet), Stinger ('70 Pontiac GTO - tank), Outlaw (oil tanker - command base) and Jackhammer (Ford Bronco - assault vehicle), but in fact all of them are pretty cool.
I do have some problems with the Split Seconds series: the MASK vehicles and figures produced for that series suffer greatly from rubber rot, which has affected even the best kept Masks and rubber tires.

Anyhow, I used to spend hours and hours playing with MASK... Simply loved it all to bits.

A friend of mine just gave me a giant box of M.A.S.K. toys. He was moving and knew I was into toys and said I could have them. He said he had every toy they made. He was pretty sure they were all in the box. I took them out and there was a ton of them. Problem is, I need to go through each one of them, clean them up, try to put all the pieces with the right vehicle, figure out what guy goes with which, and which masks go with which figures. Ugh. then I am going to try to sell them.

If any of you guys know of a good website that would have all that info neatly and easily laid out, it would be greatly appreciated.
Check out my collection!

Not very many active MASK sites on the net, but Albert Penello's Mask site is probably the best one of all, with good pictures of all the vehicles, figures and masks. Or you can take a couple of pictures and I'll have no problems identifying everything (including what might be missing).

Thanks alldarker. I will check that site out. If I come across some stuff I'm not sure of, I will let you know. Now if only I can find the time to put into it...

That's impressive Bowspearer. What's your favorite out of what you've got? I remember wanting the Jackhammer when I was younger, the Outlaw looks cool too.

It's interesting that you ask that question, because it's hard to give a straight answer. MY childhood favorite is a tie between Slingshot and Raven, but then as an adult, I picked up so many that I didn't have as a kid and so it's become hard to choose.

For me, the Split Seconds line these days have been the real interesting line. When I first saw them, I was underwhelmed, but as time went on, I started looking past the fluro colour schemes to see some amazing designs in there.

Then you have Boulder Hill that's awesome because, well, it's Boulder Hill, while the motorised action of Volcano is really nice too.

It's a tough one really.

The Volcano kinda reminds me of those motorized Monster truck toys from the 80's with the pop out claws in the tires so they could "Handle any terrain" The more I look at that thing the cooler it looks. I may have to try to pick one up. :)

Nice MASK collection there, Bowspearer! I'd say your collection is about as complete as mine: don't think I have many MISB vehicles but most of my collection is very MIB.

I was never into the merchandise, so I don't have the racing set (although I do have a die-cast metal toy car Thunderhawk which is pretty cool).

The Split Seconds were indeed pretty cool, except for the quality rubber they used on that series: seems everything that's soft plastic or rubber in the Split Seconds vehicles is suffering from (severe) rubber rot. Do you have that same problem? I've been looking for a replacement Jackal Bruno Sheppard for the last couple of years but I'd say there are NONE which still have perfect masks for Bruno Sheppard or his clone.

Biggest MASK regret? Not buying a Thunderball prototype on eBay, due to finding out two days too late that it was sold (for about $1,000+, BTW).
