ok, so with all the other awesome toy lines of the 80's getting some new show/toy love like:

Transformers
Thunder Cats
MOTU
TMNT
GI Joe
Smurfs
even the 80's iconic Pac Man has a new show!

Why can't M.A.S.K. get in on the action? i think it would do pretty well. it's still got the potential to make a great show, not to mention that 3 3/4 figures are still hot at the moment, so why not cash in?

anyone else like to see a fresh take on M.A.S.K. ?

I definitely want to see M.A.S.K. action return. new with classic.it would work so well with kre-o. Also, why did nothing go forward after the Matt Trakker gi joe figure release? I bought mine asap, and was so excited. But nothing else came of it.

I do remember Kenner doing a toy line similar to M.A.S.K called Vor-Tech which came out in 1996. Evidently there was a cartoon associated with it as well. The line didn't do all that well. I too was a bit surprised that nothing came of Trakker being added to the GI Joe line back in 2008.

Yeah, I thought maybe the Joe Trakker was a test figure to see if there was still an interest in M.A.S.K. since perhaps Hasbro had acquired the license when they absorbed Kenner. Good grief would I ever love to see a return of M.A.S.K.!

Does anyone know when the actual 25th anniversary of MASK would be?? or maybe the 30th?? seems like a cash cow they could milk for abit if Hasbro played their cards right....I'd be interested if it was done in an classy manner.....

Actually, I think it debuted in 1985. (You guys can correct me if I'm wrong about that.) If so, then the 30th anniversary would be 2015. Here's hoping...

I have a feeling they will do a SDCC exclusive crossover with GI Joe... They already have the Matt Trakker figure...

If MASK was done as a new toyline, it would probably be in a Lego/Kreo type line.

As for a new cartoon, not gonna happen. They just don't make straight action cartoons anymore, and seeing what does (sadly) pass for cartoons nowadays (Marvel's Avengers, Hulk & the Agents of Smash, Ultimate Spider-Man), I'd just as soon keep it that way. They've already screwed Teen Titans, G.I. Joe and even Loony Tunes, let's leave some of my childhood intact, shall we?

that would be ideal. i really hope they cash in on the oportunity *fingers crossed*

hell, they could evee take M.A.S.K. straight to the big screen without a toon. that might actually be the best way. all the parents who remember it from the 80's would totally take their kids and it's a cool enough plot that it would attract a lot of non traditional fans. i'm sure it would do well at the box office and then they could reverse it and make a follow-up cartoon. if they made a friggin battle ship movie, than why not ths?!

If it's Kreo how am I supposed to fit my 25th Ann. Matt Tracker into something that small?? (Hiooo, lotsa innuendo today)....I'm not a big fan of the Kreo stuff so I'm Pre-complaining(similar to Pre-ordering) Hasbro & it won't even cost you a dimes worth of shipping......So Hasbro if your out there, I'm praying "1:18th scale is just all right w/Me"......I don't care what they may say I don't care what they man know.....1:18th scale is just alllll right w/me....

I think it would have to be in a smaller scale if Hasbro was to do it. Imagine what it would cost to do vehicles in the 3 3/4" size. And forget getting Boulder Hill. We know how much Hasbro hates playsets.

Now there's an idea. Do the line in it's original scale, maybe even using the same tooling. As I remember, that actually worked out pretty well for Hasbro when they brought back G.I. Joe.

yeah, that could definitely work. especially if they added a little extra articulation and detailing. maybe some knee and elbow joints. i would buy into that. it would add to the nostalgia factor too.
