It is with a heavy heart to report to you that Ralph Baer, “The Father of Video Games” has passed away at the age of 92. According to this article on examiner.com, Ralph passed away at night on December 6th, 2014. 

Ralph was one of the most interesting human beings I have ever had the pleasure of interacting with. 

Please take a moment to look over all that Ralph has accomplished in his life and learn about what his family had to endure during World War II. 

RIP Ralph, thank you for sharing your genius with the world.

I can remember when I received these toys as gifts. I’m sure my brother and I spent a good amount of time with these, most likely throwing them at each other and calling it “playing”.

As I started to re-collect M.A.S.K. items, I started small. I didn’t have a lot of space to display so I started with the figures. I eventually completed my figure set while also completing my vehicle set a few years after. These toys still hold up today, they---------------
