29 days until G.I. Joe Retaliation – assault VTOL

Twitter user Twitziller continues his “40 Reasons to Be Excited About G.I. Joe Retaliation” series with today’s image: assault VTOL!

In the last film, members of the G.I. Joe team were ferried around in a silver VTOL called a “Howler”.  (It always looked like a featureless glider wrapped in aluminum foil to me.)  This time around, the Joe’s ride is a bit detailed in the form of the yet-to-be-named assault VTOL craft.  It’s a sturdier-looking craft which happens to bear more than a passing resemblance to a Cobra Rattler.   It’s a nice design homage that shows that the production designers took the time to look through the source material for reference.  We’ve no idea how this craft will be used in the film or whether or not it will see much in the way of action, but it did a plastic representation in the form of the Ghost Hawk II!

Check out Twitziller’s previous entries in the series below.  We’re getting closer, gang.  Closer every day!

29 days to go!
