CUSTOM MATT TRAKKER AND GLORIA BAKER, FROM THE 1980s MASK CARTOON [MARVEL LEGENDS SCALE] BY DSNG!

Prepare for a Blast of Nostalgia!!!! First, a Brief Cartoon Role Call: In the 2000s, we had Justice League, My Little Pony, Avatar Air bender, Danny Phantom, Samurai Jack, Ben 10 and Young Justice. In the 1990s we had TinyTunes, Animaniacs, Batman, Duck Tales, Goof Troop, Xmen and The Gargoyles [Fawk Yeah!!!] And back In the 1980s, we had the G1 Transformers, Voltron, The Centurions, Heman, G.I.Joe, and Ma-Ma-MA-MASK!!

 And my customs are based on two characters that I greatly admired as childhood heroes, back in the 80s, from the MASK Cartoon Series. Matt Tracker [or often spelled Trakker] was the ultimate good guy, cool-headed and always calm, and he was a loyal father. He also showed a fatherly spirit to his men [and women] and he was always a good father to his son, Scott, even when the young lad would get himself in trouble. Those traits in my eyes, made him a true hero, even though he had no super powers.

Truthfully that cartoon was way ahead of its time in the 80s setting, because the good guys & villains were using advanced nanotechnology, finite-particle manipulation and zero-state quantum mechanics to create those masks with diverse customized powers. Although fans never got to meet the wife of Matt, they did get to see the Karate Hottie, Ms. Gloria Baker [who is shown as my female MASK agent]. As far as I can remember, these two characters never hooked up in the series, but as a childhood fan, I thought it would be nice to put them together as a power couple.

    

   

    

   

The base toy for Matt was the ML Captain Britain [and I enhanced his chest with putty before adding the body armor, gloves and boots]. And the Captain Marvel Carol Danvers was used for Gloria’s base; plus the extra mohawk-head from the Carol toy was used as the base for creating Gloria’s aquatic mask via putty, in stages. Their removable masks and costumes were fully sculpted and hand-painted with Tamiya acrylics, and the base of the mask for Matt was gotten from a McFarlene TitanFall toy – but I had to enhance it greatly with putty as well. Some of their weapons have magnets and those guns were customized. Like and Share!
