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.


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. Henchmen


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

The Gravity Weapon was a specialist weapon mounted onto the nose of Switchblade and operatred by Miles Mayhem from inside that vehicle. It fired a powerful and devestating gravity beam capable of squishing anything in it's path.

V.E.N.O.M. first tested the weapon on a speeding locomotive carrying a cargo of coal just outside of Philedelphia. As reported by Jude Wilson of the evening news, all of the crew managed to escape, but the coal disappeared. While investigating the crime scene, Scott Trakker and T-Bob found a giant diamond like gem which appeared to have created from the coal with the gravity weapon.

When M.A.S.K. agent Alex Sector investigated the gem, he found it to be made of the hardest substance he ever encountered. However, the crystal was not a natural diamond, but compressed coal.

Mayhem used part of the crystals he created to armor two other V.E.N.O.M. vehicles, Jackhammer and Manta in a nearly unbreakable coating. Their next target was to rob the Philedelphia mint. While engaging M.A.S.K., several of their vehicles were damaged, including Thunderhawk and Rhino while Firecracker had already been crushed by the gravity beam during an earlier encounter.

Thanks to Gloria Baker's cunning use of her Aura mask, the gravity beam was turned against Mayhem by turning the beam upwards. This caused the control to jam. Unable to turn the beam off, he lost control of Switchblade and had to make a crashlanding. The beam proceeded to destroy the entire vehicle.

In several episodes you can see Manta with 2 saw blades on the front.

The saw blades flip out from the base and are actively used as both a weapon and a tool.

The saw blades were only available in the cartoon, even in the Racing Series episodes, not with the toy. However, there are Customs of the saw blades.

Summary of A Matter Of Gravity

Location of the episode*: Philadelphia, USA
 
Short summery*: V.E.N.O.M. plan to rob the Philadelphia mint with a new Gravity Weapon that affects gravity in any object it touches.  

Safety tip*

Facts worth knowing about A Matter Of Gravity

Particularly in this episode*:

•First episode featuring Hurricane, identifed as "Night Stalker".
•An unmasked, mohawked V.E.N.O.M. Henchman was seen unloading raw crystals from a truck with a bulldozer.
•The safety tip lesson as used again in the episode "Caesar's Sword".  

Small mistakes in the episode*:

•The same shot of Thunderhawk transforming into jet mode and taking off is used thrice. The second time, the footage is flipped horizontally, and Matt Trakker can be spotted behind the wheel on the right side of the car instead of the left.
•Immediately after the first time T-Bob is squashed by the Gravity Weapon, he is seen sitting in the back of Thunderhawk without any damage.
Thunderhawk's right gull-winged door is shot off by Jackhammer. Later it is still missing in an overhead shot, but back on the car when Thunderhawk passes Shark. After that, it is missing again.
