Enter MechaCutchen

I love 80s cartoons and toys.  
I had a huge Masters of Universe, and Thundercats collection as a kid.  
I also had a bunch of Transformers, M.A.S.K., Ninja Turtles, and Voltron toys when I was younger.  

Unfortunately nearly all my toys were thrown out except my Piranha motorcycle and Sly Rax from M.A.S.K., my Tygra and Slythe figures from Thundercats, and a handful of my "bigger" Transformers like Jazz and Blaster.  I found them all in a red Lego bin when I was moving into my first apartment.

As an adult I recollected a lot of my Thundercats and Voltron toys I had as a kid.  

I also began buying some of the G1 Transformers reissues that Toys R Us produced.  

I don't want to get into the story of all my 80s toys collections, but I eventually sold them all.  

When the pandemic first hit last year I found myself reminiscing about the cartoons and toys I grew up loving.  This lead me to a rabbit hole that ultimately brought me to Matt-Trakker.com where I discovered the ultra talented artist KeroWack! who had created his own comic book based on the property M.A.S.K.

After viewing some of KeroWack's art (real name Brian) and seeing some of his YouTube streams I knew I wanted to get his take on my two favorite things merged together.

80s Cartoons like Transformers and Andrew McCutchen

This is what he came up with...
Enter Andrew MechaCutchen

This meched out version of Andrew McCutchen is so fricking amazing!  

Like ridiculously amazing!!!

You have a giant protector of the Steel City with weapon in hand (bonus points for being a Marucci bat), dreadlocks, sunglasses, and the PNC Park in background of a dusky horizon. 

Amazing job KeroWack!
