G.I. Joe Retaliation

The release date for G.I. Joe Retaliation has been confirmed as the 23rd of March.

Like M.A.S.K. and Transformers, G.I. Joe was big in the 80's and if a successful movie and sequel can be made from this Franchise then there is no reason why a M.A.S.K. Movie couldn't make a successful return for the brand.

Starting off as a 12" Figure, G.I. Joe, or Action Man as he was known in the UK, had been around for decades before he was reduced in size to the more popular format made successful with the Star Wars Toyline.

In the U.K. the initial release of the smaller sized toy came under the name of Action Force and featured various Forces based on the previous 12" Figures.  Later the toys moved into specialised forces such as the SAS, Z Force, Q Force, etc.

Soon, the range changed to G.I. Joe - this would be the first time the name was used in the UK market place.

A revamped Action Man made a return years later, both in the UK and US markets.

So, with three Transformers movies under their belt and the upcoming release of the second G.I. Joe Instalment isn't it time that M.A.S.K. made the jump the big screen?

So, how can you help?  As you know, I've written a script and I'm looking for an agent with ties to Hasbro.  

Please share this site, like my Facebook Page and spread the word.  Most of all, enjoy my site and the chat; and get involved.  Share your comments and thoughts on all things M.A.S.K.

And remember my friends over at M.A.S.K. Movie who also have a script and a great site.
