I’m kind of surprised it took me this long to get around to MASK, the transforming vehicle toy line that also included tiny figures with helmets that had different powers. There’s a mountain of play value in the concept (kinda sounds like they combined two different ideas, doesn’t it?) which translated into me becoming a big fan of the 80s cartoon along with the toys. I’ve got two duffle bags filled with the vehicles somewhere in the depths of my parents’ house.
How rad is this commercial? If I had to guess, I’d say it was created before the cartoon because a) it’s got live action performances in it which are awesome and b) they seem to be focusing on the semi truck instead of Matt Tracker’s ass kicking flying car. I love how the commercial includes live action MASKers, stop motion vehicles movement AND kids actually playing with the toys. I wonder if those MASKs still exist?
