Action Figure Action

This weekend Anna had me go through several boxes of my old things -letters, photos, notes from school and ACTION FIGURES. It was an interesting trip down memory lane.

On thing that struck me, upon reading a note from highschool about my "miserable" grades in chemistry was how much of my young life was spent in the mad pursuit of "points." (Also, I'm left wondering what masochistic element im my personality prompted me to keep the note in the first place). We need so many points for this and so many points for that. It's a little surreal when you think about it.

On the other hand, i enjoyed going through my old action figures. And since I've brought up the subject of points, I WILL AWARD ONE HUNDRED MILLION POINTS TO WHOEVER CAN IDENTIFY THE NAME AND TOYLINE OF THE FIGURE BELOW:



That's a heck of a lot of points. You could even pass a highschool chemistry course with that many points!

Gosh that looks like something that came out of a Kinder Egg.

That's from the M.A.S.K. toyline. Instead of having cars that turned into robots, the vehicles in the M.A.S.K. universe turned into OTHER KINDS of vehicles once the drivers put on their "masks".

I remember I had Stiletto and another guy. One had a motorcycle that turned into a helicopter, and the other had a morotcycle that turned into some kind of jet thing.

Your toy, Ben, is the little robot that becomes a scooter that the obligatory kid-member of M.A.S.K rides around on.

Way to go Steak for earning an ice cold 90 MILLION POINTS! (the x-tra 10 mil comes with the name of this scooter, if it has one).

Steak! you can use these points for gym class and you won't have to climb the rope!

Ben: It didn't seem to print my other comment...I was urging you not to dispose of any of your action figures.....Christopher in particular is so in to ThunderCats. But I also wanted to remember how really great it was when you would make your "set ups" in your bedroom and then call us up to look at them. I think I might give a gazillion dollars to have one of those times again. You would spend HOURS setting up your figures in these really intricate scenarios. We always took a picture. It was so great.
Love, Mama

Anna said...

The best part is, I somehow managed to talk my way out of taking chemisty. I wish I could have that day back again. I must have been in rare form.

But I would like some points to put towards my miserable Algebra grades. More contests, Ben!!!

Pull another action figure out of the heap!

Ben, you have such a sweet mom. I need to go play trains with my kids now!

ben Hatke said...

I do have a sweet mom! Thanks Anne!

Unfortunately, that comment above was actually written by an older gentleman in Wyoming who pretends to be my mom. He does this on other peoples blogs too. Takes all types I guess...

Kean said...

Why, that's T-Bob from MASK! I am truly surprised no one remembered that.

ben Hatke said...

KEAN! You just picked up a cool TEN MILLION POINTS!! Nice job!

Maybe I'll try to do another one of these next week...

Anna said...

Man, someone is giving away points like they are unlimited! Ben, how do you DO it?

ben Hatke said...

No, that wraps up the original ONE HUNDRED MILLION that was up for grabs. 90 mil I brashly gave away to Steak, and for Kean there was only 10 million. Even though I'm so impressed that he remembered the name T-Bob.

So now, if the baby is a boy, we're goin' to name him T-Bob!

What happened to "Castle Greyskull"? Shouldn't that be your next baby name?

Ben Hatke said...

Oh yeah. I forgot about that. I made Anna sign a paper, years ago, that says we can name our first son "Castle Greyskull."

Then we had two girls in a row!
