Today we will be adding a couple new pieces to the site. The first, is one that followers of the MASKast Podcast will be familiar with (MASKast uses it as the lead-in to each episode). Our addition is a cover version of the M.A.S.K. theme song, performed by the (now defunct) band Video Micro. The song is now in our Media library, but it can also be found on Video Micro’s MySpace page. The band has also recorded a cover of the theme to Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors – for those who do not know, Jayce and M.A.S.K. actually shared quite a few sound effects!
Our second piece takes us to the United Kingdom and back in time to the 1980s, December, 1988, to be specific. The holiday issue of Eagle featured a six page M.A.S.K. story and a fantastic cover showing Miles Mayhem dressed up as Santa Claus! Readers will notice some marked differences between this comic and the cartoon. Particularly, VENOM being aware of Scott Trakker and his connection to M.A.S.K. Also, the normally cowardly T-Bob shows more courage in this one instance than in all the episodes of the cartoon combined. To check out the full story, click on over to the Comics section and enjoy.

More great news for M.A.S.K. and 80s cartoon fans! James Eatock, the brainchild behind Cereal:Geek (the 80s cartoon magazine), sent out an email recently regarding the newest issue. For anyone who follows Cereal:Geek you know there has been a long delay for issue 8. Well, James’s email assures us all that issue 8 is at the printers and will reach it’s readers very soon!
Not just news but content as well, we’re doing it all here today! Our newest addition is an Argentinean variant of Cliff Dagger. This variant from Argentina almost comes across as a knock-off. The knee joints are exposed metal unlike the ones in the US and European counterparts. The trimming is also given much less care, with bits of extra plastic found around the edges of the figure. Move your way to our Figures section to take a look at this South American action figure!
Several more M.A.S.K. toys have come our way, so do not forget to come back soon and see what we’ve cooked up!

The last few weeks have been very exciting here. It seems every day there is some new M.A.S.K. thing to get excited about. What is so exceptional about this, is that it is mostly new works, like the fantastic LEGO creations of a few days ago. M.A.S.K. ended it’s original run in 1986, twenty-five years ago, knowing that people are still excited about it is definitely something to celebrate. However, today is a rewind to seven months before the first episode of M.A.S.K. ever aired.
In order to protect their property, Kenner filed patents on several of their vehicles; Thunderhawk, Condor, Rhino and Jackhammer. All four of those have been featured on boulder-hill.net for some time now. Today, however, we have the pleasure to showcase a fifth. After some lucky searching, boulder-hill.net has turned up the patent for Miles Mayhem’s Switchblade.
To see the page on a larger scale head over to the Guides page. Also accompanying the larger image, are the other four pages of this piece of M.A.S.K. history!

Anyone who follows the site will have noticed that there has been a freeze on updates for a while. It was unavoidable as other pressing matters reared their ugly heads. Hopefully things will remain calm and at least a (semi)-regular updatie schedule can return to the site.
Besides this apology, boulder-hill.net is also happy to bring you some new items of interest. As the first half of the old saying goes: “something old, something new…” and we have one of each of those for you!
Something old: A short comic strip from Eagle magazine in the UK. The Adventures of Cliff Dagger, everyone’s favorite bumbling bad guy. Why does he wear an eyepatch? perhaps one day it will be explained. (The full sized comic can be found over in the Comics area of boulder-hill.net)
Something new: While it is true that there has not been a new episode of M.A.S.K. in over twenty years that hardly means the show is forgotten. The great people over at StickerFixer have released another superb set of replacement decals. This time, they have recreated the labels for a personal favorite, Brad Turner’s Condor. The stickers for Condor are only $4 (US) plus shipping, which is an amazing deal for any M.A.S.K. enthusiast! Sticker Fixer uses high quality metallic paper to create their labels ensuring that their replicas are as good, or better, than the originals. Just check out the photo to get an idea of how great these things are.
As things slowly work back up to speed, more updates will be coming to boulder-hill.net (although posted content has been lacking, unposted content has continued to build up!). Keep your eyes pealed for more exciting stuff from the world of M.A.S.K.!
