M.A.S.K. Technologies:

M.A.S.K. has its headquarters at a gas station in Boulder Hill. Boulder Hill Gas works as a functional gas station, complete with gas pumps and a repair garage. Buddie "Clutch" Hawks, M.A.S.K. agent in charge of upkeep on the fleet of transforming vehicles, also maintains the gas station's cover as a working facility. If under attack, the gas station has offensive and defensive transformation abilities, including freeze cannons and armor plating.

Inside, M.A.S.K.'s headquarters is far from ordinary; M.A.S.K.'s vehicles are stored inside, as well as theenergizing device that powers the team's masks. Matt Trakker has a subterranean transportation system that shuttles him between his mansion and M.A.S.K. headquarters. All this is supplemented by an incredibly powerful computer.

The MASK energy room is one of the central elements of the first MASK episodes.

Hidden deep in Boulder Hill, the energy room consists of two parts. The room where the M.A.S.K. agents come together to discuss the mission, and the actual energy room, also called the mask room.

The table and chairs in the energy room are on a huge platform, which rises up following the meeting.

Once the platform has moved up, it reaches the mask room where the masks will be charged for the mission.

The masks are moved out of the ceiling with the energizing device. The energizing device can hold a maximum of 8 masks.

After the energizing device was mopved out of the ceiling, the arms fold out and an energy beam flows through them, into the masks. With this, the masks are then charged for the mission, and can be used.

In the course of the episodes, the energy room always looks different. He has several designs.

The garage in Boulder Hill houses the MASK vehicles.

To the mission upcoming in the episode, always just the right vehicles in the garage are ready. How this happens, is not to be seen.

The garage for the MASK vehicles is well disguised, as a workshop.

In order to be able to drive the vehicles from out of the garage, the lifting platform is turned 180°, that a flat floor is created, and the back wall of the workshop goes down.

This opens the way for the use of the vehicles for the mission.

The M.A.S.K. Computer is housed at both Matt Trakker's mansion and at Boulder Hill. Trakker often uses voice commands to ask the computer to analyse objects and photographs and has programmed the computer to select the most suitable M.A.S.K. agents for each mission.

Occasionally, Trakker uses a portable version housed in a suitcase that has the same capabilities.

The computer is also connected to all MASK vehicles. So Matt uses it regularly in Thunderhawk to let the computer choose the best agents for the mission.

Every MASK agent had it, every fan wanted it, the iconic MASK watch.

With the watch, today we would say smartwatch, the agents were informed that they were selected by the M.A.S.K. computer for a mission.

A flashing mask, similar to Matt's Ultra Flash mask, appeared in the watch's display, signaling to the agents that they were needed.

These left thereupon everything and drop, and hurried to the mission.

The watch was silver / red with a metal bracelet.


T-BOB technologies, activities, outfits:

Like all MASK agents' vehicles, Scott's vehicle can transform T-Bob. In this, and many other episodes, T-Bob's default mode can be seen.

T-Bob has a wheel on which he can ride after his transformation, like a one-wheeled scooter.

Scott uses T-Bob very often as a means of transportation, transforming T-Bob into scooter mode.

This mode was also part of the toy, but rather poorly implemented, as T-Bob had 3 wheels here.

Summary of Highway To Terror

Location of the episode*: Central City & Clear Lake; USA

Summery:

M.A.S.K are on a mission to recover hugely radioactive plutonium that Venom have stolen from an army vehicle. The plutonium will be used with a computer box to create earthquakes, but M.A.S.K already have the box. They must now try to steal back the plutonium aswell, before Venom cause destruction all over the world.




Safety tip*
Scott and T-Bob are lying by the lake. When T-Bob jumps up to dive head over heels into the lake, Scott points out that he doesn't know how deep the water is. Matt comes along and says the water is deep enough and gives the go-ahead for the swim.
 

Facts worth knowing about Highway To Terror

Particularly in this episode*:

•The sequence of Brad Turner receiving the call from M.A.S.K. while practicing his guitar is used again in Solaria Park.
•When Matt Trakker pats Scott's head twice, T-Bob can be seen mimicking the motion as if he is being patted as well.
•The episode The Magma Mole features the same message during it's safety tip, albeit under different circumstances. 

Small mistakes in the episode*:

•In the opening scene, a military driver refers to his superior as 'Sergeant' but when the man in question gets out of the car he calls himself 'Captain Miller'.
