I didn't see a thread about these things, so I figured I'd start one for it. I picked up a bunch of the basic ones for cheap from K-mart because they were on sale, and I'm digging them. I never had M.A.S.K. toys, but I did have KEY FORCE which was similar in a lot of ways. I've picked up Soundwave, Barricade, Silverstreak, and Hound, and I'm really liking them. I definitely like Soundwave the most - his weapons springing out is really satisfying and when you look at all his missiles and guns and stuff they could conceivably all fire and he wouldn't hit himself with any of his own weapons. None of the other guys really do that - the door-weapons on Hound and Silverstreak don't have enough clearance to really "work", for example. I'd say Hound is the weakest out of the lot - his back wheels popping outward doesn't seem to serve a purpose other than to show off random metallic bits, and his door guns are lame because you can still see them when they're closed up. The trunk minigun is pretty righteous, though. I dunno, I didn't think I'd like these things at first because of the price point and because they don't transform, but for like $6 apiece I think they were worth getting. I've got no interest in picking up the Bumblebee one, and I don't want to drop $15-$20 for the bigger ones (although Gears and Inferno are pretty cool, just not for that price), and I don't care about most of the series-2 ones coming out. But the basic ones are just really satisfying to pop the weapons in and out over and over, I can't even put my finger on why.
