The best toy ever?

M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) was an 1985 animated television series directed by several uncredited Japanese studios. It featured a special task force featuring an array of characters, led by Matt Trakker, with transforming vehicles engaged in an ongoing battle against the criminal organization V.E.N.O.M. (an acronym for the Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem), with an emphasis on super-powered helmets called masks worn by the characters on the show.
Piloted by hero Brad Turner, The M.A.S.K Condor was a Transforming Motorcycle that quickly became a one seat helicopter. The colourful toy was simple, sturdy and quickly became very popular at the time. The show would include other motorcycles into the series but this one remains our favorite.

If future archaeologists should find one of these deep within the strata of a long forgotten sandbox-its ours, so hands off.

Mask was the best! I had a few of the toys. They worked way better than transformers.
