This lot is part of a world class collection that was carefully curated by a private high-end collector.  Never has a MASK collection of this caliber been offered in a single sale.  In fact, most of these pieces, especially in such exceptional condition, are extremely difficult to source.  The collection is highlighted by a complete set of Series 1 in FIRST RELEASE “Short Mask” form:

Series 1: Boulder Hill, Rhino, Switchblade, Jackhammer, Gator, Thunder Hawk, Condor, Piranha

Firecracker, also included as Long Mask, was added to the line later on as evidenced by early MASK advertisements (see photos).  

Also part of this collection are Series 2 releases:

Series 2: Volcano, Hurricane, Vampire, Outlaw


Our Offered Lot:

LCG Top 5% Eye Appeal Designation

Simply put, this is the best AFA 75 large box vehicle we’ve ever handled – this includes all toylines.  Gorgeous MISB Switchblade with Miles Mayhem action figure from Series 1.  This is a highly coveted, very difficult to find FIRST RELEASE “short mask”.  Take a close look at each panel - we’re confident you’ll agree this one is well deserving of its LCG Top 5% Eye Appeal designation.  Clean throughout with only minor imperfections.  Factory tape sealed on each end and no colorbreak whatsoever along the edges.  Again, do not dismiss this one based on technical grade – it’s a beauty.  Encapsulated by AFA (75), #11106896
