Need toy ID help please

Hi everyone,

I can't seem to recall the name of the following toy, thought I'd ask for some assistance from you guys.

I had it back in the mid 80's, and the description is something like this:

You slid your hand into a glove, and atop that glove was a massive spider-like, tarantula furry creature, which an action figure could sit on too...and it had massive battery operated wings that would flap when turned on. The thing was super bad-a** awesome, and of course there was a good guy and a bad guy. I just described the bad guy one.

Anyone?

The other childhood AWESOME toy memory I had, since it coincided with the perfect age for me, was the M.A.S.K. toys.

Time to start tracking them down too.

I have 2 still, I have to check their names however. (the black suv looking truck, and the camaro one)

(...)

Green Motorcycle = Condor (with Brad Turner)

Yes, the '80's toy I enjoyed even more than Transformers was M.A.S.K. (and I still own a complete vehicle + figure collection to prove it).
I'm so meta, even this acronym...
