A friend of mine got "Shocking Tanks" for Christmas. It's 2 remote controlled tanks and each player manuevers and shoots at his opponent. When your tank gets it, the controller shocks the hell out of you. When I saw it I was skeptical about how much it could really shock you since it was a toy, but these things light your ass up!!!

As tonight wore on and we drank a few beers, we played a high/low card game where the loser got shocked. Holy shit it's funny.

This is the most hilarious fucking toy I have EVER seen.

This year, my unit did a collection for Toys for Tots... Folks went to the PX and bought stuff to give away for Christmas...

It turns out that the PX carried a similar toy, but instead of RC tanks, it was Laser Tag.... If you got shot, your gun shocked you...

Suffice it to say that that one got a little use the night before it was given away....

Same here, thanks!

The rotors on mine ALWAYS broke. I think I went through 3 of those until my parents finally decided that was enough.

My little nephews have one.
Can't be that old, so I would suspect that they're still out there in some form.

Not so!! from www.hobbylinc.com/htm/jsm/jsm18027.htm



They also make AH-64 Apache and AH-6 Little Bird variants!! Walmart carries them for 9.95.

I got the cobra a couple of months ago, and bought the little bird for my 38 year old little brother. We wore out our vertibirds in the day, too. These are just as fun, as evidenced by the fact the we (the entire male population of the family) went through several sets of batteries on Christmas day, in several hours of play.
