I missed the whole M.A.S.K crossover. When and how did the story go for M.A.S.K joining G.I. Joe?

I think this figure is one tough looking Hombre, and who cares about the sin of toy line cross over here. They(the Joe team and M.A.S.K) were pretty close in my mind as a kid. I'm fairly sure with the success of the 25th line almost, and I stress almost, everyone is going to get there favorites made. And yes, I know Hasbro said they have no intention of "pursuing" characters like Zandar and Zarana, but lets be honest, you guys are getting Mindbender made! And this is from a line that they also claimed originally was only going to be a couple waves deep, and now I am running out of room in my house and the funds to purchase all the new stuff they have coming out.(but I'll never stop)[well until neon firing weaponry comes back anyway]
Let us all rejoice in the small mountain rad stuff we are getting from Hasbro and cool out on the constant deluge of negativity and nitpicking that has become this forum. Could be worse, none of this stuff could have been made.
Just one loyal tankers opinion.
Having said that is it just me, or with that chestplate(and possibly that helmet), could someone here with some custom skills make a pretty darn good "Master Blaster" figure from "beyond thunderdome"?

I like him. As I had M.A.S.K. as a kid I'll be getting one to add to the collection.

I'm really starting to dig this GI Joe oddity.

I agree that sarge was the most natural crossover. He was an existing military character. He was written into the comics after the figure was released. Same with his "hosting" the cartoon. That being said he was An idea with an existing fanbase that brought people into the line. The fridge was a reach, but the intent was the same, use the popularity of character( I guess the fridge was more of a novelty) to bring new people in.
MASK is a character (toy line)that that shares many qualities with joes. Government funding, high tech, rapid deployment, ( they even face an enemy that is somewhat reptile based)
I know I won't change your mind, but they tried something nostalgic and did a fine job at it. I'll probably get a couple and initially I was like " what the heck?" but it grew on me. Do I want to see him in the comics or cartoons, No! But i'll buy that figure

I like MASK & would maybe even buy some of it if they released some anniversary stuff,but as a Joe collector it bugs me that we have this...but still dont have a Recondo,Ripcord,Footloose or even a Dr Mindbender for that matter.
I dont ever recall any Mask/Joe crossover so really this figure is just a square peg in a round hole. A Transformers figrue wouldve even made more sense...at least they had a comic.
The only bright point to the situation I can see is Matt's head (with a little mod to the hair) could possibly make a good Duke custom?

Do I like the figure? Meh... it's okay. The face sculpt is terrific.
Do I mind a MASK character in GI Joe? Not so much. Would I rather have seen another GI Joe character? Sure.
But still, I don't mind it. What I do mind is that a MASK character that has nothing to do with GI Joe gets a brand new, awesome face sculpt and other new parts, when we get stuff like Grunt, Steeler, Clutch (arms only, really), Major Bludd, even Stalker (I hate those leathery glove bare hands) that really, REALLY could have used just a little bit more new tooling. But no, a MASK character gets it.
When it comes right down to it, I don't mind having a MASK character in the line, but they should make it with reused parts. Save the new tooling for actual GI Joe characters - instead of putting out a craptacular figure like Steeler, consider that any "bonuses" like Matt Trakker would be just as much appreciated with reused parts.

I bashed this figure when it first came out as a future release. But, wow. That head sculpt is the best I have seen in this line yet. I played with MASK as a kid. I just didn't think it fit into GI JOE. I think I will have to give it a chance now.
