As a longtime MASK fan, I'm excited about the addition of Matt Trakker to the Joe-verse. I know he hasn't been a part of the setting, but I'll be honest; I'd rather have him than yet another Snake-Eyes or Storm Shadow variant (those are getting very old).
Look, I know we all have fond feelings for the old characters from GI Joe. But GI Joe has always been about introducing new blood into the ranks and, frankly, all we've seen the past year or two are rehashes or re-designs of existing characters.
Furthermore, while Matt Trakker may seem like an unorthodox move for the line, crazy crossover characters are not unheard of. I mean, we had Sgt. Slaughter (barf!), The Fridge (double barf!), and almost had Rocky freakin' Balboa (triple barf!) stuck into the product line. So, why is Trakker so bad? After all, at least he was already in the action toon business. To me, it seems a somewhat natural fit.
I, too, would love to see a Miles Mayhem figure, though I don't think he and Cobra Commander could co-exist for long. Too much ego. ;)

I think the figure could be pretty cool so I'll buy it. It's not like GI Joe doesn't have it's weird gimmick characters. C'mon a cowboy helicopter pilot, native american tracker, genetically engineered general from history's greatest generals, crock master, that weird falcon guy, etc.

Well, I'm excited. This finally opens the door to something that we all want...a Burgerdier General figure in scale with our Joes.

It's cool to get a new character, but unless Hasbro thinks M.A.S.K fans are going to start jumping out of the woodworks to buy Joes then it just becomes kinda of a stunt wink wink and in that case I think more Joe fans would get excited about Lt. Stone, Billy, Big Lob, Pythona, Dr. Venom, or Sgt Savage if you are going to go obscure.

...and really, if it's a cool figure i'm all for it ~ i mean, i could easily throw down a list of 20 figures i'd RATHER have, but i don't find Matt to be all that offensive or illogical an inclusion. almost seems like he could be a 'Chuckles' type, just with better taste in clothes ;)
My 25th Most Wanted List:
1. Tunnel Rat <-CHECK! 2. General Hawk (v2)<-CHECK! 3. Leatherneck <-CHECK(kinda...)
4. Jinx 5. Dusty <-CHECK! 6. Snow Serpent <-CHECK! 7. Tele-Viper <-CHECK(kinda...)
8. Falcon<-CHECK (kinda...) 9. Footloose <-CHECK! 10. Recondo <-CHECK!
9 down, 1 to go ~ but i really want a new Leatherneck and Falcon

I think you are projecting. There's really no evidence of such figure. I won't believe it until I see it.

I cringe when hear about M.A.S.K. and not because I don't like them, they were awesome and I had most of them, I'll happily buy Matt Trakker.
I cringe because when I was in fifth grade I was running to the house to watch M.A.S.K., slipped and fell on my face, breaking out my 2 front teeth. Turns out I was the only 5th grader with fake front teeth, thanks M.A.S.K.
