8 days until G.I. Joe Retaliation – tank battle

Twitziller takes us into the final stretch with today’s reason to be excited about the debut of G.I. Joe Retaliation: the tank battle!

I just want to say “it’s about time!”  Growing up as a young Joe fan I always had a soft spot for the tanks of the toy line.  The MOBAT, the Mauler, the HISS– these were the things of legend in a kids military toy line!  When G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra debuted in theatres the final act of the film featured CGI submarines fighting in CGI water with CGI sinking ice.  Yawn.  This time around, we’re seeing some real tanks (at least the Ripsaw) in a REAL tank battle!  It’s the kind of final that kids played out time and time again in their back yards with their own toy tanks.  This time, however, it’ll be exploding on the big screen and that’s just fine with me!
