Wow....bringing back MASK.  Where are the vehicles?

I agree about the Micronauts.  I had a bunch of the vintage ones when I was a kid.  Great toys back then...these not so much.

I've always wanted a 3&3/4" ROM, but it's not the classic version nor does the Wraith look at all similar, so I can't say I care too much about this one.

That seems to be the main complaint about this set.  It's based on the IDW comic series looks/takes and not the classics.  Matt Trakker isn't the same, ROM isn't the same, the micronauts are just lil mini-figs, etc.

For a one-off box set based on a comics, seems like a fun SDCC set.  I can handle the micronauts being what they are trying to keep everyone in scale, but yeah.  This box is basically a giant tease to fans of all these properties who'd like to see MORE of MASK, GI Joe, ROM, Micronauts, etc.   :-\

That IS weird...I remember wanting to get into that line a few years ago and eventually gave up because the stuff is just impossible to find on the secondary market.


If you're actually interested in these, my neighbor has a fair amount of them still on the card for sale.  That and Bravestar stuff.  I think he'd sell it for a really fair price just to get rid of it.  I was going to try to help him unload them, but he's anti-Ebay and we never really found another good outlet.
