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.

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

 (click for images)

The Cyclonic Disruptor was the titular 'ultimate weapon in the episode The Ultimate Weapon.

V.E.N.O.M. perfected a device capable of interfering with M.A.S.K.'s technology, particularly their vehicle's operating systems, making them go haywire. The Cyclonic Disruptor appeared to be the size of a typewriter and was installed inside Switchblade's cockpit.

V.E.N.O.M. used the Cyclonic Disruptor during a series of raids on domeshaped buildings. The first attack, on a large cinema showing the premiere of the 'space wars' movie titled 2020 was just to get M.A.S.K.'s attention.

Subsequently, V.E.N.O.M. let information leak out that their next target was The Mackenzie Observatory. This was done to lure M.A.S.K. into a trap and test the Cyclonic Disruptor on them. Indeed, none of the M.A.S.K. vehicle's weapons worked the way they should and the flying vehicles had trouble remaining in the air, leading to Condor crashing into Shark. Even T-Bob, who was visiting the observatory with Scott Trakker got his circuits scrambled and began to go haywire.

Switchblade got away with the McKenzie telescope, but soon dumped it on a backroad. The theft had merely been a dress rehearsal for a more important theft: the Phelps Breeder Reactor which had just received a big shipment of plutonium.

By this time, Alex Sector had developed a divice to neutralize the Disruptor's effect and he and Buddy Hawks spent all night installing them in each of M.A.S.K.'s vehicles. Using T-Bob as an indicator, each M.A.S.K. agent activated their neutarlizers during V.E.N.O.M.'s attack on the Breeder Reactor, but Matt Trakker instructed them to still act as if they were beint disrupted to trick V.E.N.O.M. When he realized this, Miles Mayhem simply increased the power on his disruptor, thereby neutralizing Sector's neutralizers.

However, the Disruptor did not appear to work on M.A.S.K.'s masks such as Sector's Jackrabbit. Also, Brad Turner managed to fool Mayhem with a holographic projection of multiple M.A.S.K. vehicles projected by his Hocus Pocus mask while he himself remained just out of range of the disruptor flying in Condor.

Mayhem ordered a retreat, leaving a time bomb behind at the Reactor. Sector saved the day by using a rocket pack from Jackrabbit to fly the device high enough into the air for it to do no damage when exploding. Defeated, V.E.N.O.M. made no further use of the Cyclonic Disruptor.

Summary of The Ultimate Weapon

Location of the episode*: Mackenzie Observatory & Phelps Breeder Reactor, USA

 
Short summery*: V.E.N.O.M. obtains a Cyclonic Disruptor that jams the control systems of M.A.S.K.'s vehicles, rendering them immobile.  

Safety tip*
On their way to the soccerfield, Matt reminds Scott that hitchhiking can be dangerous. Scott invites his friend Jeff to walk to the game with the Trakkers instead of stepping into a stranger's car (who also seemed to be heading in the opposite direction).
 

Facts worth knowing about The Ultimate Weapon

Particularly in this episode*:

•The footage of Gloria Baker using Kung Fu to break stones seen during the agents call up sequence will be used again in the episode Bad Vibrations, albeit with different sound effects. 

Small mistakes in the episode*:

•While Matt is driving to Boulder Hill, T-Bob is sitting on Scott Trakker's lap. Since T-Bob can transform himself into a motor vehicle, he should be too heavy for a teenage boy.
Buddie Hawks is present when Matt Trakker suggests that Scott and T-Bob visit the observatory. Yet after the team is assembled, he neglects to tell Matt his underworld contact told him the observatory would be V.E.N.O.M.'s next target until being asked about it.
