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 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.

In addition to Condor's antimatter beam and Laser-Guided Jet Mode, we see another technology built into Condor here.

A grappling hook.

This grappling hook is located on the underside of Condor and can be used by helicopter mode.

For this, a hatch opens on the underside from which the grappling hook is extended.

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.

In order for Scott to communicate with his father Matt Trakker, T-Bob has installed a communication system.

The keypad, microphone and speaker are located on the back of T-Bob's head. Covered with a flap.

The communication system often helps Scott and T-Bob out of trouble, but Scott has also used it to save a mission or two.

Scott can contact the M.A.S.K. team with it, or he is contacted over it by the M.A.S.K. team.

V.E.N.O.M. Technologies:

The Ultrabeam Generator was a devise which could project powerful beams that made certain seeds grow into vineplants of monstrous proportions. It was attached to the nose of Switchblade, so that Miles Mayhem could operate it in the wake of Vanessa Warfield dropping seeds on designated locations while piloting her Manta vehicle.

V.E.N.O.M.'s targets in Los Angeles included the Hollywood Bowl, Griffith Park Observatory and a jungle movie set. When Sly Rax expressed concerns that they weren't making any money with these hits, Mayhem replied that he wanted to make sure that California was 'very impressed with our friendly little weed'.

Agents of M.A.S.K. managed to thwart V.E.N.O.M.'s plans by causing Warfield to stray from her course and fly into the range of the Ultrabeam, causing the seeds in Manta to grow at an unstoppable rate. After that Matt Trakker used one of Thunderhawk's lasers to destroy the Ultrabeam Generator with a direct hit, leading Mayhem to flee. Trakker concluded that he had to allow V.E.N.O.M. to escape in order to stop the vines from overgrowing the area. Luckilly for him, his son Scott had found the plant's weakness: freezing temperatures.

Soon, Bruce Sato had constructed a 'Freeze Bomb' which could be shot from Rhino's projectile launcher and the M.A.S.K. team set to work getting rid of all unneeded plantlife in Los Angeles.
