Alton Takeyasu
We conducted an interview with Alton Takeyasu in October 2021. Alton designed concepts for MASK vehicles from 1984.
One of his concepts was later produced in a heavily modified form as Outlaw.

In the interview, Alton gave us insight into how the vehicles went from concept to finished product.

Many thanks Alton!




The Top Secret MASK Red Book was a mystery for fans for many years. Many knew that it existed, but only a few have seen it.

Until last year when maskforce.com put pictures of it online. We were now lucky enough to get a reproduction of it, and have scanned it completely for you.


What is the Top Secret MASK Red Book?

The Top Secret MASK Red Book was created to give the various manufacturers of licensed products a guide to ensure a consistent standard of quality. Therefore you can find detailed descriptions of the agents and vehicles of MASK and VENOM as well as hints which fonts and colors should be used.

Furthermore, it is for all MASK fans a treasure that combines an enormous amount of knowledge, and is simply beautiful to look at.

You can now find the Red Book as a flipbook on our site. With the real look and feel, as if you had it in your hands.

What makes the reproduction different are the dividers. Otherwise you will not notice any difference online.

It is the Red Book for series 1, from series 2 there is also one, let's see when we get our hands on it.

We wish you a lot of fun with this unique piece.

Good news for all fans of the cartoon series.

We are incredibly proud to present you our new episode guide.

We have tried to write down all the information about an episode that we could find in the episode and wanted to know ourselves.

Agents, vehicles, technologies, artifacts, locations, episode info, episode mistakes, how the episode was even released. Detailed info about the appearances of Scott and T-Bob are of course not missing. Additionally we have hundreds of screenshots per episode and much more.

We have been working on the episode guide for almost a year and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we enjoy reading it.

The episode guide for the 1st season is now online.

Have fun


Sometimes things suddenly appear that you never thought you would see.

Like a, for me, holy grail of MASK collectors.
A real Thunderball box. Not a repro or custom, no, a real one! The only known box.

The box is from the collection of Peter LeRose, thanks for letting me use the picture.

A dream



I would like to celebrate with you. An incredible anniversary.

The website https://www.matt-trakker.com is 20 years old! More than 20 years ago Bill had the idea to create a MASK website.

In that time, many sites have come, and gone. Bill, however, has kept MASK alive for 20 years. Today especially with his great Youtube channel, which every MASK fan must have subscribed to.

Bill, keep up the awesome work!!! Congratulations



I got a great package these days. I don't collect anymore, but I wanted to support @vectarized. I wanted to honor his great work.

The most important reason for me was that the money for the Venom's Revenge box will be donated to Brendan McKane's widow, Sharon Noble.
You guys want to support Sharon? Then contact @vectarized at vectarized@gmail.com
He currently still has the Venom's Revenge and Rescue Mission boxes. The Collector is sold out. All the more annoying that the postal carrier has crushed them.



We conducted an interview with Shinji Aramaki in March 2021. Shinji designed the vehicles, the mechanics of the vehicles and the accessories for the cartoon series.

He is also responsible for the complete development of Shark and Manta, which were never intended to be toys!

Shinji gave us in the interview insights into dei creation of the vehicles in the cartoon.

Thank you very much Shinji!

Many fans have asked for it.

Now they are here. The box art drawings by Lance Anderson in high resolution ????

I have rescanned all of them and made them available for you to download in a resolution of 300dpi as .jpg or .pdf

You will find all drawings that Lance gave me as a copy in 2003.

I have tried to edit the scans as best I can to give you the best possible result.





Laser Command is one of the rarest and most expensive MASK Toys ever. But what is the stoty behind Laser Command?

I had a little small talk in June 2006 with Ralph Baer. He told me a little bit about the story behind Laser Command.

Before I start to tell you the story. Who was Ralph Bear? He was more than just the guy behind Laser Command!







Merry M.A.S.K.MAS eryone. 



I was guest at Behind the MASK from our friends at Matt-Trakker.com. I don´t want to say much. Tune in and enjoy out talk. 



Hello MASK fans, it‘s done. We started doing it in 2005, but never finished. Now the time has come. We took screenshots for all 75 episodes. Not 5 or 10, no, 712 screenshots on average each episode.
