The Illusion On DVD

[DVD Box Set: too awesome]
Written by GL

Released just this year, M.A.S.K. is available for you to own on a totally cool, 4 DVD disc box set (complete with snazzy box cover - shown above). This is no joke. It's the ultimate re-issued of the cartoon from 1985, enhanced and fixed up for your viewing pleasure.

As it states on the box cover, illusion is the ultimate weapon. Led by the always cool Matt Trakker, the Mobile Armored Strike Kommand (M.A.S.K.) is a secret organization that fights crime a special way; by donning specially charged masks they gain extraordinary powers. Oh, and they have super vehicles too (if you haven't already heard), capable of a wide range of defensive and offensive actions, from changing a car into a jet or becoming a submarine.

Trakker meets each unusual situation by picking the agents best suited for the job. As each agent has special talents some are better for a particular mission than others. VENOM, led by always uncool Miles Mayhem, always has their hands full when their evil plans for control are met by the crusading forces of M.A.S.K.

Collection 1 includes episodes 1-38. Can you wait for the next collection? Other details include:
  • Region: 1 (US,CANADA)
  • Studio: Vortex Films
  • Disc Type: DVD-9 (dual-layer)
  • Audio: Dolby Digital Stero 2.0
  • Run Time: approx. 760 Min
For the lover of those old school cartoons, I recommend this (and a multi-region player, if you don't already have one). Get it while it's hot.
