An all new Ebay Bandit is riding into town and this time he’s trying to M.A.S.K. his true intentions…
What intentions are those? To sucker you into buying Cliff “Blaster” Dagger from M.A.S.K. You remember M.A.S.K,, right? It was a toy line and cartoon, which stood for Mobile Armored Strike Kommand and featured a bunch of guys who put on masks and had special transforming vehicles. It was kind of GI Joe meets Transformers. This figure from Kenner is hardly rare and can be had for about $4 on Ebay.
Enter our Ebay Bandit, who’s name is apparently Jeff and he’s currently having a sale on this “unknown” figure. How much does he want for old Cliff? $69.97! And if you think that’s a ripoff, remember that this is 30% off the regular price. Normally our Bandit wants $99.95 for a figure that’s not even three inches tall. To make matters worse, the Ebay Bandit has claimed this is a figure of John Wayne!
I know John Wayne wasn’t exactly slim and trim by the time he was playing Rooster Cogburn, but I don’t think he ever had the body of Cliff Dagger!
According to his bio, Cliff is an expert in demolitions and bare-knuckle brawling. He was also a convicted arsonist! That doesn’t exactly sound like John Wayne… Then again, maybe it is someone John Wayne could have played!
This figure isn’t even complete! The original figure did have a minor interesting note, in that there were two versions of his Torch mask. But neither is included in this Bandit’s auction!
Jeff… You are an EBAY BANDIT!
