What Matt Trakker Might Look Like As A Funko POP! Vinyl Figure

Dublin artist Luca Canu just tweeted us a visual of something I've been dying to see! Recent chats that Wyatt and I have had on MASKast have explored what Hasbro could SHOULD do with the M.A.S.K. franchise for the 30th anniversary this year. We fans have been waiting for years to see new officially-licensed M.A.S.K. merchandise. Canu's imagination just gave us something that I believe would be a great fit...Funko figures! Take a look at V.E.N.O.M. leader Miles Mayhem in all his inflated head glory!


Demand is high for Funko's POP! Vinyl figures and I think producing a few of the main characters would be great! I'd also like to see Funko produce some M.A.S.K. and V.E.N.O.M. agents for their ReAction line of figures. The only 3 3/4" size figure (ala '80s Kenner Star Wars and G.I. Joe) we've seen was the "Specialist Trakker" figure from the 25th anniversary G.I. Joe line. I'd love to see classic M.A.S.K. designs in that standard size!


Time for a rant!

To this day, it baffles me why Hasbro hasn't done more with the M.A.S.K. franchise. Since M.A.S.K. faded in the late 80s/early 90s, we've only seen one action figure and one half-assed attempt at a comic book reboot. I understand the rights to the TV show have been disputed for years and I'm grateful Shout! Factory pushed to release the 2011 DVD boxset, but the toys rights are CLEARLY owned by Hasbro. In recent times, we've seen new reincarnations of My Little Pony and Jem in comic books, movies, and animated TV shows. And what did we get at this year's San Diego Comic-Con? More of the same and a tease at Micronauts and ROM The Space Knight comics. Seriously? Look, I'm not saying M.A.S.K. could surpass the other juggernaut franchises, but why has Matt Trakker and the team been in retirement for 25 years? Give it a chance, that's all I'm saying. In the meantime, we fans continue to wait...
