    I remember playing with this when I was a little kid. I've seen lots of the base part, but never the little ships and guys with it.

    Nice haul. I'd like to pick up some MASK toys that I love but never got as a kid, just for nostalgic value.

    Woot! I remember that!

    My little brother got it for Christmas one year... I was too old for it, but it was a really cool toy!

    The whole design is pretty stylish, but the features make it. The circular working elevator with the sliding doors, the rotating radar and gun turret... (guns? On a playskool-age toy? Yep!). The vehicles were pretty sweet too. The little shuttle is neat, and the missile trailer with the missles that slide forward when you raise the launcher... very simple movement but very satisfying.

    We also discovered that the playset is pretty much the perfect size for Battle Beasts. ;) 

    Oh, from the picture, it looks like you're missing one vehicle... the bigger one. It's a boxy multi-wheeled moon-rover/truck thing. It has an open cockpit, but also windowed hatches on either side that open onto little computer consoles you can put the men in. It also has a little radar dish on top.

    This brings back memories... I think ours eventually got destroyed by being left out in the yard too many times. :(

    I knew I was missing some stuff but I Wasn't sure what. There is suppose to be some kind of antenna that goes on top of the station, that im missing.

    the truck you are talking about, I think there might be one more vehicle missing too, because everything is numbered
    01
    02 the orange truck
    03 the missle truck
    04
    05 the shuttle
    06 the station

    the orange truck has a hole on the top/front, and looks like two small clips, so I think something attaches to the front of that, which would be number 01, and 04 is probably the large vehicle you are talking about.

    I bought this at a yard sale on saturday, I remember the house I got it from, I may just go back and see if the lady can find the other parts

    Yep. A large radar dish with a pivot joint in it as I recall.
    The peg hole in the front of the orange truck isn't for another vehicle, it's for a little peg-in grey gun... or maybe a camera or radar dish. I forget exactly, but it's just a little accessory. I don't think I ever knew what those clip things were for.

    I had this sneaking suspicion that I was forgetting a vehicle, and I think I remember what it is now. I believe it's a small saucer ship, similar in size and colour to the little shuttle. I'm fairly certain it also had a red laser on it just like the ones in the turret. I don't remember if it had an open or closed cockpit though.

    The set also came with 2 alien figures too... they were identical except one was blue and the other green, I think. They had no articulation at all, but could fit in the vehicles. They were kind of cute and muppet-like, and pretty non-threatening... except I think they were pointing one finger, which of course for me and my brother meant that these Martian suckers could fire death rays out of their hands. I mean, c'mon.... they're Martians after all, right? :) 

    Hope you find more of the missing bits!
