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:

MISB Piranha with Sly Rax action figure from Series 1.  This is a very difficult to find FIRST RELEASE “short mask”.  Various imperfections throughout, most notably the surface wear on the top panel.  Light flap crease on the reverse.  Factory tape sealed on each end and no colorbreak whatsoever along the side edges.  Overall, a well presenting piece that’s certainly deserving of a spot in a high-end MASK collection!  Encapsulated by AFA (75), #16233445
