    I got a bag of these little guys from my thrift store. They're definitely early 90s/late 80s. Anyone know what show or toy line this is?

      At least 3 of those figures are M.A.S.K. (I recognize the old guy in blue on the far right, the guy with purple coat/black pants, and the guy in blue jumpsuit with red lifevest). Also, that red helmet at the bottom is definitely a M.A.S.K. mask.
      Since they all appear (at least in that pic) to be constructed the same, it's safe to assume that all of them are M.A.S.K. figures.

        I also managed to track down exactly which figures are in that pic, which can be tricky since most of the figures have several variants, depending on which "series" they were released in.

            Alright, thanks a lot Drahken! You've helped out tremendously. Yeah, I was doing some treasure hunting at my local thrift store and saw 2 bags filled with action figures, there was a bunch of GI Joes which I recognized right away. M.A.S.K may have been a little before my time. Thing that is really awesome is that the figures are all cherry, like they were lightly used. No weapons though.

              It's funny to see someone say they know joe but MASK was "before their time", since MASK was essentially a ripoff of joe. (Yes, I know, joe continues into the present day, but it's still funny.)

              The MASK figures never had weapons, their only accessories were the namesake masks. Their main selling point though were the vehicles, which "transformed" from ordinary vehicles to fighting vehicles at the push of a button.
              I had http://www.albertpenello.com/mask/thunderhawk.html and http://www.albertpenello.com/mask/pirahna.html what i really wanted though was http://www.albertpenello.com/mask/rhino.html, it was total badass, with a capital "ass".

              Interestingly, hasbro (owners of gi joe) bought out tonka (which owner kenner, creator of MASK), and incorperated at least one of the MASK characters into GI Joe (matt tracker, the leader of MASK).

              MASK also had a cartoon based on the toys, and a few comics.

              If you want more info on the mask toys, the site I got the pics from http://www.albertpenello.com/mask/ is a good source.
