Kenner M.A.S.K. T-Bob with Scott Trakker Action FigureYou can probably afford T-Bob with Scott Trakker Action Figure, as it isn't very expensive. The back half of the 1980s were largely dominated by a mix of 5-inch figures, G.I. Joe, and several small scale (but not yet Micro or Mini) action figure with vehicle lines. Dino-Riders, Starcom, and M.A.S.K. are fondly remembered but not all of these little guys were hits. The figures were cheaper overall with less articulation, and it wasn't uncommon for the heads to be largely unpainted. The entire M.A.S.K. line has unpainted human faces (except for hair) with the deco given to the titular masks, unless you were Scott Trakker.

For those not in the know, this line has been mostly dead since the 1980s. One exception was in the G.I. Joe 25th Anniversary line, as a new Matt Trakker named Specialist Trakker got released. He's pretty much it as far as the line's legacy goes, although fans seem to be hopeful for a reboot. Given the price of toy vehicles these days, I wouldn't bet on it.

Scott is small. Not even hitting 2 1/2-inches high, the 5-jointed son of series hero Matt Trakker doesn't have knee joints like the adults in the line, which is kind of a shame. The figure interacts with T-Bob, a little robot/scooter/bike thing but can't quite use his handlebars. Scott himself has sausagey limbs with tiny hands, and has no problems standing. The glossy figure feels very early 1980s, but it's oddly nearly perfect after being moved from house to apartment to apartment and so on over the last 30 years. I played with these a lot so I'm kind of surprised to see the hair isn't dinged and the shoes are all still blue. Scott's feet have holes in them so he can ride around on T-Bob without falling off, which I really appreciate.

T-Bob is weird. I remember asking for this toy as a child, and I also remember being a bit miffed the figure didn't interact with it as nicely as it did on the cartoon. The three-wheeled robot has arms which extend out and retract, plus a rotating head dome sort of like R2-D2. The legs are jointed and can alter the figure's height from a hair under 2 1/2-inches to the vehicle mode of 1 1/2-inches. The strange thing is that it's pretty good - it has no problems rolling freely on my desk, and his deco is mostly provided by the plastic. His eyes are yellow dots, and his mouth is a red sticker. A stripe of blue makes up part of his head, making this a bizarre but charming artifact from the 1980s. This is, by no means, an impressive piece but it you look at it as the entry-level budget kid toy, sort of like the original Transformers Bumblebee, it's a charmer.

Kenner M.A.S.K. T-Bob with Scott Trakker Action FigureI really dig old Kenner toys, particularly the smaller action figures of this era. This is the smallest human figure of the entire line, and T-Bob is arguably better than the action sleds, backpacks, or survival rafts packaged with some of the other figures. Scott really could have benefitted from having his own mask - that is the name of the line, after all - but it's a worthwhile purchase if the price is right. Get it if you always wanted one, but unless you're already a member of the M.A.S.K. cult you should probably go about your life and not bother.
