Mobile Action Command Challenge

Matchbox's Mobile Action Command is one of those fun toys a lot of people had but have no idea what they were called. These guys had a real limited back story and I honestly don't remember if they had any sort of TV advertising. I was surprised to find out as an adult they were supposed to be some sort of "Thunderbirds" type organization.

Check out the 1977 Matchbox MAC catalog Gallery for more info.

I got so excited, thinking it was a MASH playset i had never seen...and then the disappointment set in.

Holy Skamokaway!

I'd totally forgotten about those toys! I had the little 'medical unit' truck featured in the playset.

Doesn't the while line feel like it was designed by Terry Anderson in his Captain Scarlet days?
