I'm psyched up to get this figure. As a kid, I would concoct many "team-ups" with my Joes...and I was always mildly grumpy that Hasbro strictly offered Joes and Cobras (well, until 1988 when MARS/Iron Grenadiers came along).
What was even more frustrating was that other brands (namely MASK, He-Man, Super Powers and those damn Transformers) were of different sizes and proportions. So I always whipped up some explanation like: "when MASK came over to the Joes' world via the dimension warp, something happened and they came out as 3/4 of their normal size!"
As toys, MASK did have some effect on the Joes' stuff. I always thought that vehicles like the HAVOC and Raider, with their pull-apart functions, concealed mini-vehicles and hidden weapons owed a lot to MASK. Stuff like that didn't arrive until after 1985, when MASK debutted.
Some stuff translated well. MASK's Boulder Hill playset worked great as my version of "Zartan's Gas Station". A few of the smaller Cobra vehicles could bust through the garage's main door. But it still bothered me having MASK figures and vehicles at roughly 3/4 the size of my Joes.
So for that reason alone, I'm glad to finally have a "normal sized" MASK agent to hang with my Joes. Now if Hasbro can whip up a 25th anniversary Mer-Man, Firestorm and Hound (the Jeep from Transformers), I'll be ecstatic.

I don't think he's all bad.
But Airborne looks is a better choice by now.

Granted it is an odd choice, but I'm OK w/ it. I'll gladly integrate the figure into my collection once found.
I'm not begging to see more M.A.S.K. characters brought over, but Vanessa Warfield could easily me made from the Baroness mold...

Finally got mine. This is a great figure. I was always a huge fan of m.a.s.k. And this is a great oppurtunity to incorporate another loved 80's property into my g.i. Joe setup. Don't get me wrong there are still other joe figures out there that i want to see but who cares we'll get them eventually theres no promise we'll ever get a chance at new m.a.s.k. Toys so rejoice this is a good thing.
See all my customs here:

Just opened Matt Trakker. He has one of the best face sculpts of all JOEs IMO. But on mine the left knee is floppy as hell. also the backpack won't stay on his back at all, and the only thing keeping it on there is him holding the little arm-handle. His gun looks rad and his finger holds the trigger nice and snug. The helicopter backpack is pretty much a failure with the loose propeller spinner that falls down every time I try to spin it with my finger. But he looks cool standing there I guess.

I loved MASK when I was younger, so I was quite excited to get this figure. I will definitely buy a second one to open and play with when and if I find one. So, not everyone sees this as a peg-warmer.
I am curious if something's up with the MASK trademark, though. "Mobile Armored Strike Kommand" on the top right seemed a bit awkward...

He looks like alot of 80's toys with the colors and that.I think that was the intention.

Okay, so I just opened my Trakker figure today and WOW! I love it. Like many 25th figures, the accessories totally make the toy, and in this case, the helmet and shoulder armor are awesome. Love the head sculpt, probably the best in the whole line.
I am now convinced the score given to the figure was way too low. This figure rocks.
