I know for a fact with some of my past ravings I am probably pretty traditional when it comes to G.I.Joe.
However, I love good ideas and this seems to be a pretty darn good idea!
Since Hasbro bought out Kenner many years ago, I never thought this could happen especially since it was so long ago and I all but forgot about M.A.S.K.
Hasbro definately is doing this for the nostalgia collector and I would fit into that group to be sure!
Although many people feel different, I don't care too much about the vehicles. I rather would have more figures of different guys; M.A.S.K. included.
Hopefully they will come out with Alex Sector, Bruce Sato, & Matt Tracker in the R.H.I.N.O. uniform. That would be cool.
I remember they had some Dreadnok knock off characters too. That might be cool too if this picks off the ground and makes a complete different spin off with this franchise!
Thanks for reading this!

although I'd rather see other joes first, I don't mind the Trakker fig, but god ditch the neon!

I'm all for it, I was a HUGE M.A.S.K fan, but I was reading an article, that a full-on revival might be a bit hard. Hasbro's lost so many rights to so many names, the most important one being "M.A.S.K". I'm sure they'd have a problem with "V.E.N.O.M" too. What the hell does Hasbro legal do all day? j/k! I don't care, I'm liking the Matt Trakker Idea, and am now EXPECTING Miles Mayhem to show up!
It's a definite nod to the old schoolers, and I'm totally behind it!

they shouldve kept the trakker figure in its original scale...itd been like midget wrestling version of GI Joe.
that H.E.R.O. backpack is garbage regardless of color.
and kudos to anyone who gets the H.E.R.O. reference.

I know for a fact with some of the past threads that I deleted were in the wrong forum, and that I am pretty traditional when it comes to keeping only news and rumors threads in the news and rumors forum
However I love the fact that I can move this to the appropriate forum!
AGAIN PEOPLE, IF THE THREAD IS NEITHER NEWS NOR RUMOR, DO NOT POST IT IN THE NEWS AND RUMORS FORUM

I was a huge M.A.S.K. fan as a kid, but didn't initially see how the figure belonged in the Joe line. I've since warmed to the idea, as I like the concept of creating and or borrowing characters to freshen up the Joe property in general. For instance; Paraviper and Wraith are huge win's IMHO in the "spicing things up" category. I'd rather see something borrowed, something blue every so often, than constant retreads of Storm Shadow, SE, or CC again...and again....and again.
In other words; if getting Matt Trakker means that we'll also being seeing further innovation right through to the movie crap next year, I'm fine with that. Part of me hopes the movie tanks hard though, so that we can get back to the more pure Joe stuff very quickly. Anyone else agree or disagree?

Im cool with M.A.S.K., problem I see is the vehicles.........they will probably do a spin-off with one or two vehicles a wave. Mostly, they will do small back-pack type accessories to fill the need, then, if the line goes crazy....they do the big vehiks like, Thunderhawk, Rhino..ETC. 2 cents
'URP...It's whats for dinner!
