Yup. Mobile Armor Strike Kommand. I had the green motorcycle/helicopter thingy and the camaro w/ gull wing doors. Also had a birthday party themed from that, complete with the MASK paper tablecloth
Was that the one that had its rear wheel turned into a propeller or whatever the rotor thing on the tail is called then something on the sides became upright to become the rotors?

Oh, wow, I used to have one of those. I completely forgot about that.

I used to have this other truck... I forget the name... But, if it hit an obsticle, it would put down this 'bridge' thing that it carried over the top of the truck itself. Then it drove over the bridge and it picked it back up...

Wish I could find a picture...

I had the car I think it was called the jet stream. A remote controlled race car that made jet fighter sounds

All you young kids, I just can't relate to your robot toys. Now the day my dad brought home PONG, that was a day to remember! We hooked it up to the Color TV of course, the Black and White was in my room. Any one else out there 40? The great toys I had were the Evil Kenivel stunt cycle, the Whirly-bird battery powered syrofoam ship with the helecopter that circled. And lets not forget those SST Racers where you pulled the plastic whip cord to get the drive wheel spinning and having the whip snap your fingers just before it cleared the grove. Then of course there was always the sticks found in the yard. Yeah, at least our generation had an imagination.
Now I'm starting the whole experiance over again through the eyes of my 2 year old twin boys. Have I got the toys to show them when they "STOP BREAKING EVERYTHING.
