The Power of Packaging: Specialist Trakker
Looking back at the 25th anniversary series figures, I’ve got to say it’s often a bittersweet reminiscence. On this tenth year since the first appearance of the Joe and Cobra packs, the differences between the action figure market of just a decade ago is striking. I see fewer toy lines featuring individual character art on their packaging.
Matt Trakker (and MASK, by extension) was an exciting addition to the Joe team, and the figure was very nicely done for a time when Hasbro didn’t have a ton of parts from which to choose. Matt is well represented on his card art, and I’m impressed by the dramatic lighting, though it would have been nice to see Thunderhawk slipped into the background.
