I was a latecomer to the M.A.S.K. toyline when it was started back in 1985, my attention was focused solely on Transformers and G.I. Joe at that point. I didn’t become interested in the world of the Mobile Armored Strike Kommand until renting a VHS tape with a couple of the cartoon episodes.
By then it was too late to head out to my local department store and start my collection of vehicles and figures though I’ve kept my eye out at my local comic shop and area flea markets in the years since.
Even though I may not have been able to get on the ground floor of being a M.A.S.K. fan I can tell you hands down that the animated series had one of the best theme songs and now thanks to Shawn Watson we can listen to that song in it’s entirety, it includes a second chorus focusing on the villainous V.E.N.O.M. (Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem).
