    I was reading Revolution when this idea leaped out at me.

    Titan Master Trakker, Titan Master Mayhem, each transforming into heads that resemble their Masks from the show, and with simple vehicles that swap between two modes.

    Am I delusional? Yes!
    Is it still a fun idea? Also yes!

    Christ, that's an amazing idea.

    Along with a ROM Titan Master (Rom robot to Rom head), they could easily do a Revolution wave of Titan Masters.

    There is so much potential with the Titan Masters it always seems to me that basing them on regular G1 characters is a waste. MASK faces, deffo. But also from old TF lines that don't get a look in: Beast Machines Jetstorm, RID Sideburn, Energon Ironhide, Prime Bulkhead...

    That's a pretty nifty idea actually, would be a great nod to the "Hasbroverse" outside of the comics. I could've totally seen those as being some kind of convention exclusive.
    It's not quite the same as official MASK/Rom/Diaclone Titan Masters, but it wouldn't surprise me if someone on Shapeways produces, or maybe even already has made, some faces of those characters that can be used for customising existing Titan Masters.

    Brilliant idea! Give me Sly Rax and Brad Turner turning into the Stiletto and Hocus-Pocus Masks and a Titan Master motorcycle accessory that can be decoed as their bikes.

    My meager assortment of M.A.S.K. toys are up there on my "Why The Fuck Did I Sell That?" list with my Starcom toys. I need to get the Piranha and Condor again for my toy motorcycle collection.

    I would buy them all in an instant. Fecking love MASK. Even as a kid I wished their vehicles where more in scale with my transformers.

    Boris Buskin & Bulldog repaint from TR Leader Prime!

    Still have both my MASK and Starcom collections. Even the Snake Oil tanker truck; that was one of my favorites with that big giant cannon in it, I shot everything with that. I only regret never getting Switchblade.

    I still have Piranha, but that toy really wasn't put together very well at all.

    I'd be down for some GiJoe TitanMaster action.
    imagine if you will a HISS tank that transforms into a Headless robot. then Destro leaps outta the cockpit transforms into a head for the HISS bot.

    The Titanmaster class figures are a perfect MASK spin-off in the making. A vehicle/beast with two forms and a little pilot who can have their "face" in head mold molded like a MASK character.

    This is actually a great idea, both for the fans and from a business standpoint for Hasbro, as it could be used for cross-promoting the Hasbro Universe stuff.

    TFs with MASK masks on? Hell yes.
    I wouldn't mind seeing Spectrum, Ultra-Flash, Backlash, Viper, Whip, Aura, and Torch.

    I love mixing those 3. Those 3 work great together. When Matt became an official Joe,I was sold. Mix in TF and you got a winner. M.A.S.K. is my joes R&D and they could be a specialized Joe unit that deals in Cybertonian tech.

    I would love this, and add GI Joe to this. TR opens the door to alot of possable crossovers. And all would be great. I wonder how they can use fort max or metroplex in the crossover line.

    Re: GI Joe, not against it in principle, I just don't know if anyone besides Snake Eyes, Destro, and Cobra Commander would make good heads for the titan master figures.

    Not a big fan of flesh-toned heads on my TFs (sorry Pretenders fans).

    Sadly, no MASK or Rom reveals in NYCC yet.

    Though the Shuffler Titan Master plus a coat of silver paint could make a decent Rom custom.
