Hoye got some good mileage the other day out ofthe relative inferiority of the vehicle-based Voltron series, and I was tempted to embellish upon his reflections with my own wandering thoughts — please find attached, elsewhere, sometime, perhaps, the virtues and pains of flatter organizational charts, and the productivity gains associated with allowing bright people to despecialize from time to time.

Instead, though, there is something more pressing. Somebody out there just might have M.A.S.K. episodes in some format that I could fetch with terrifying alacricity. These 30kbps RealVideo things are not exactly stuffing my MASK-hole, if you will. Little help? I am overwhelmed with nostalgia here.

    I am overwhelmed with nostalgia here.

    Tell me about it! A quick stroll through the “Toys” section of the MASK page had my head swimming. I had the Rhino first, and then the Switchblade, which I think were the two coolest. Yet somehow I remember playing with the Manta the most. It brings back memories of the theme song: M-M-M-Mask!

    My favourite part of the web site you linked to was the “Lethal sound waves” and “Lethal sound waves part two” — I guess they weren’t very lethal if had to come back for more!

    At one point, I owned the entire, short-lived series of M.A.S.K. comic books.
