As a kid, I was into all the things boys were into in the ’80s. He-Man, Transformers, Atari, Star Wars, etc… My favorite was always G.I. Joe. As 10 year old kids often do, I always had cross-over battles. G.I. Joe vs. Transformers, He-Man vs. Ninja Turtles. So, when I saw the figure of Matt Trakker from the new G.I. Joe 3.5 action figure line, I nearly squeed (okay…I squeed a little). It was Matt Trakker! From Mask! As a G.I. Joe figure! My boyhood ideas about making Matt Trakker battle Zartan can now finally be fulfilled! You see…Mask figures were about 2 inches tall. There’s no way Trakker could’ve taken out Zartan at that size ratio. Now he has a chance. Yo Joe!
Diva Note – I have to give extra thanks to Scott for helping me out while I was off dealing with real life. It’s nice to know there are people out there who are just this cool ;-)
