Toy Hunter’s Log: Slingshot (M.A.S.K.)

Date: May 20, 2012
Place: Halifax Forum Flea Market
Item(s): Slingshot w/ Ace Riker (1986)
Series: M.A.S.K., Series 2
Manufacturer: Kenner
Condition: Loose with box, complete, good condition
Price: $15.00 CDN

Personal Notes: Here is the Slingshot vehicle with Ace Riker! The box is not in the greatest shape (some tears here and there) and it has no inserts. The vehicle (a White RV/Surveillance Unit & Sonic Jet) and figure is complete, but needed some cleaning. Originally, the RV sides did not close shut properly, and was held together by a rubberband. Luckily, I was able to repair the locking part when I got this item home.

To be honest, I never knew this particular vehicle existed. How cool is it that a sonic jet can fit inside a RV? Awesome!

And that wraps up my M.A.S.K. toy buying for that day! Four M.A.S.K. toys bought: Thunderhawk w/ Matt Trakker, Firecracker w/ Hondo MacLean, Raven w/Calhoun Burns and Slingshot w/ Ace Riker! A pretty good day overall at the flea market!

And now, to finish off the M.A.S.K. cartoon theme song…

“… Trakker’s Gonna Lead The Mission,
And Spectrum’s Got Such Super Vision!
Is The Mighty Power That Can Save The Day!
No One Knows What Lies Behind The Masquerades!
Always Riding Hot On V.E.N.O.M.’s Trail!
Come See The Laser Rays!
Fire Away!”
