For all your cult film, tv, cartoon, comic and video game needs

Cult Faction Podcast Ep. 14: Masked Crusaders, Secret Raiders, Toy Line Creators

The Year is 1985, Back To the Future and The Goonies have both hit the big screen,  on the small screen He-Man and The Masters of the Universe has a strong hold on viewing figures along with Transformers and Robotech…but there is new kid on the block vying for every 8 – 10 year olds attention (and pocket money)……Matt Trakker – head of secret counter terrorism unit M.A.S.K.

In a break from our normal format this week we take a look back at the cartoon and toy line behemoth that is M.A.S.K.  We’re going to give you the low down on the cartoon, the highlights of the toy range, the history of the comic books and explain why everyone knows the theme tune.  You also get a deep dive into our personal mental state as we cast the ultimate M.A.S.K movie.  

Our theme tune this week has been provided by Bad Arts Lab.  If you like what you hear check them out on Youtube.
