MASK (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) from Kenner (1985)

Developed by Kenner in 1985, MASK (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) was a line of action figures and vehicles that initially tied into an animated television series of the same name. Led by founder and leader Matt Trakker, MASK did battle against a criminal organization known as VENOM. (Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem).

Under the tagline “Illusion is the ultimate weapon,” vehicles developed for the toy line could transform to reveal hidden weapons and gadgetry. Kenner released four series of toys until MASK was discontinued in 1988.

This vintage ad depicts vehicles and a playset that represent collectibles from series one of the toy line.
