As a kid I loved MASK and for me it was nice to see that someone over at Hasbro still loves the line too. Considering some of the bad choices that have wasted valuable spots in the limited 25th shelf space.
*Yes Arctic Snake Eyes and Cobra Ninja Viper I'm looking at you.*
Matt Trakker was an unexpected and welcome addition. (at least by me)

wasn't bad, but wasn't necessary. I'll stay neutral.

Haha, nice necro. I actually didn't mind Trakker, and was excited to see him and his absurd accessory hanging on the peg at Target.

I voted bad idea.
I don't hate the action figure. I never bought it, though.
Now that the Modern line is over/on hiatus, I think that slot could have gone to a classic Joe or COBRA character, like Ripcord or the Alley Viper.
If they want to do a line of MASK toys, then do a line of MASK toys. Don't take up GIJOE space. I can understand them wanting to add variety to the line, but there are other ways to do that.
But it is fair to say if they made Miles Mayhem and his Switchblade plane/helicopter as a COBRA thing, I'd get it...expect inconsistency and thou shalt not be disappointed.

Come on, I thought it was cool. Still don't have one though. Every time I saw one there were Para-Vipers, Eels and Zartan to be had.

I still can't believe anyone with half a lick of sense on a GI Joe fan board, when we have GI Joes who haven't been made yet in a GI Joe anniversary line and have asked for a single figure to be made who hasn't been made yet that they want, is a fan of Matt Trakker being forced into our beloved line.
There's not a single figure I will question again in this line, repaint or not, so long as they're from existing GI Joe lore or a newly-created character like Para-Viper, if Hasbro will promise not to pull another stunt like this.
Existing "real" people are a stretch... as much as I love Sarge, I'd prefer to keep Roddy Pipers and Fridges from the line in the future, but shoe-horning a fictional cartoon character into one toy line from another simply makes no sense.
