Jason's M.A.S.K. Collection (Video)

I've been wanting to do this for a long time. I've FINALLY chronicled my M.A.S.K. collection for all the world to see! After several years of collecting and re-collecting M.A.S.K. vehicles sets and memoribilia, I recently shot a video of everything I've managed to procure since 2011.

I didn't have many vehicles growing up in the '80s. I remember having Condor, Piranha, Hurricane, Pit Stop Catapult, and Boulder Hill. A mutual friend of Wyatt and I had Rhino so I occassionally got to interact with it. After I left for college, my mother gave away most of my toys and figures, but I did manage to keep Hurricane all this time. It remains as the only part of my M.A.S.K. collection that was original to me. After Wyatt and I began promoting our movie script in 2011, I got the urge to start collecting again. I decided that owning the first two toylines would be a good goal to achieve...and as you'll see, I met that goal and then some! With prices for individual toys so lofty, my strategy soon became to buy in bulk and try to sell back anything I didn't need. After a few months, I pretty much became a M.A.S.K. dealer on eBay, buying in lots and selling back complete vehicle sets that were duplicates of what I already had. A few lucky auction wins secured many of the rare Split Seconds series vehicles that I simply didn't have the heart to sell back to eBay. In 2013, I finally decided to quit the business as my collection was pretty full (including my storage space.)

For the first time since I began my collecting journey, I've filmed everything I have for my own benefit and also for M.A.S.K. fans everywhere. I hope one day I'll have the space to build a proper display for it all, but for now at least I'll have some visual evidence to review from time to time. Had a great time filming with my two boys (who you will see at the end) and hope you will enjoy watching!
