    to relive the 80's... Would some of the M.A.S.K. toys be great G.I. vehicles?

    I think Pirahna, the motorcycle with sidecar driven by Sly Rax, would be a great undersea choice.

    I thought Toyark was for actual toys, not wishful imagination.

    that GI Joe Rhino's pretty sweet. A few years old but still awesome.
    Has a chopper that pops out of a tank
    G.I. Joe R.H.I.N.O. w/ Cannonball

    That Sportscar transforming Batmobile makes a killer Thunderhawk.
    Check out what Donocropolis did with it

    There's also that Ben 10 car that could make a cool conversion
    Customer Image Gallery for Ben 10 Kevin's Action Cruiser

    Marshall's has that Transforming Mach6 (Speed Racer) on clearance for $13

    well what with Matt Trakker now being the Joes vehicle designer according to his 25th annie toys bio I guess you could say that MASK vehicles are by proxy also Joe stuff

    now I dont know much about Joes but is their a Miles Mayhem toy in the 25th line?

    Na. MASK was created by Kenner, as a hybrid of GIJoe and Transformers. Hasbro got it when they bought Kenner. So MASK had no relation to GIJoe, fiction wise, until they made Trakker a Joe. Honestly though, I think it's a fantastic idea. It's no worse than Hasbro turning Gobots characters into Transformers.

    yeah I guess MASK is the gobots of the Joe world

    Personally I think they fit in fine and make for cool vehicle specialists. Plus COBRA VENOM they slide together perfectly. Also toy wise making the mask vehicles would be easy with todays tech.

    Odd thing was I was reading reviews of the trakker toy and I get the feeling Joe fans wish they had spent their time on some one else. I would have thought they would of loved to get an expanded universe.

    Reissue the originals! Those little figures will fit nicely in the Human Alliance toys. :D  Ooh, Hondo Maclean and Ironhide would make a nice teamup. Repaint Bumblebee into Cliffjumper for Matt Trakker. A HA Blackout for Miles Mayhem. This is a crossover line I could get into!

    Joe fans are weird. They'd prefer having newer and newer versions of every single old joe in existence. I have no idea why.

    Huh?

    Are you sure that's not Hasbro's decision?

    At one point, Kenner had a large chunk of the boy's toy market. ARAH, Transformers, and the end of the original Star Wars series saw that come to an end. Their response? Create a toy line that merged elements of Transformer and GI.Joe. The name V.E.N.O.M. is no coincidence.

    Huh? I think you misunderstood what I said. We're talking about Joe fans getting all uppity because of Matt Trakker becoming a Joe. Many of them would have preferred another old joe character, instead of something new.

    Uppity? Heck, many of Venom could be Dreadnoks!

    Here's a new, yet old concept... make the slave pen holder from the original story an action figure:

    Was the gaoler ever a toy? - HissTank.com - G.I. Joe

    That's what we've been saying in this thread. The two are similar enough for the idea to work perfectly fine. For some reason, Joe fans seem to hate the idea.

    I think they could easily fit Jackhammer into the GI Joe line
