Attak Trak vehicle from the vintage Masters of the Universe toy line. According to the Grayskull Wiki, the Attak Trak is a tank-like vehicle which is capable of conveying four people. Due to its tracks it is able to pass over all kinds of terrain, whether it be flat or hilly, and also has the ability to ford streams. The Attak Trak appears to have been built with an artificial intelligence onboard its computers. It will obey He-Man’s command and will not allow any villains to ride aboard.
1982 Mini Comics
The Attak Trak was a rugged land vehicle with a gold chassis, built by Man-At-Arms and used by the Heroic Warriors. Its mighty brown treads could negotiate difficult terrain and overcome even the most challenging obstructions. Though designed for a single driver, it was large enough for passengers to ride holding on to its sides. The vehicle was also armed with laser guns capable of firing powerful blasts. In later appearances, the vehicle’s color scheme was changed to red with blue treads, which matched the toy sold by Mattel.
1983 He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Cartoon
For the animated series, the vehicle’s design was changed again, this time to feature a blue chassis with red treads. The Attak Trak was equipped with an artificial intelligence that could speak with the passengers. This heroic “minivan” could carry multiple passengers in the front and two Sky Sleds or other cargo in the back. On top of the roof was a double-barreled swivel cannon that came in handy when enemies attacked from the air.
The biography for the Fighting Foe Men suggested that the character Shield Maiden Sherrilyn was the creator of a war machine that would have resembled the original Attak Trak. Her red armor with red and yellow designs recalled the original design of the Attak Trak, and her ray gun and shield resembled the Attak Trak’s cannons and elliptical treads, respectively. Unlike the drivers of the Attak Trak in previous incarnations, Sherrilyn was a pirate who used her transport to terrorize the countryside. Sherrilyn’s design was based on the barely seen pilot appearing on the box art for the Monogram Attak Trak model kit, which shared the same design as the original toy but had Filmation’s color scheme with red treads and a blue body.
