It is with a heavy heart to report to you that Ralph Baer, “The Father of Video Games” has passed away at the age of 92. According to this article on examiner.com, Ralph passed away at night on December 6th, 2014. 

Ralph was one of the most interesting human beings I have ever had the pleasure of interacting with. 

Please take a moment to look over all that Ralph has accomplished in his life and learn about what his family had to endure during World War II. 

RIP Ralph, thank you for sharing your genius with the world.

New Logo

trakkerLogo2

As you may have noticed, there are a few changes taking place on our site, the first is a logo change.

Thanks for a few fellow M.A.S.K. agents for providing me some input on reaching my final design. 

Any work that may have my older logos on it will stay that way and any new pieces of art, shirts, etc… will have this one. 

 

 

 

 

Mobile Site

The mobile version of the website needed some work. I’ve worked through 90% of the bugs that were affecting it with only a few more to go. 

Sidebar

The sidebar has some elements eliminated from it for now with a few new ones. You can now view our RedBubble store right on our site if you ever lose the link. It will show two random---------------

M.A.S.K. is Relevant Despite Being Overlooked by Toy and Production Companies.

maskday29 years have passed, we have seen a revival of Transformers, He-Man,  GI Joe, Thundercats, Voltron and a few other popular 80’s cartoons. One thing these cartoons have in common was their great action figures and toys to go along with the cartoon.

When I accidently found my Matt Trakker figure while cleaning one day back in 2001, it sparked my memory of M.A.S.K. and just how much I loved that show and toy line when I was a kid. I can remember when I received these toys as gifts. I’m sure my brother and I spent a good amount of time with these, most likely throwing them at each other and calling it “playing”.

As I started to re-collect M.A.S.K. items, I started small. I didn’t have a lot of space to display so I started with the figures. I eventually completed my figure set while also completing my vehicle set a few years after. These toys still hold up today, they---------------
