Care to take a time machine back to the '80s heyday of dialogue-light, testosterone-heavy action films with ridiculously high body counts? Look no further than the brand-new Comic-Con poster for "The Expendables 2"!

Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jean-Claude Van Damme and a host of other Reagan/Bush Sr./early Clinton-era action stars battle for space - literally - in the new one-sheet, which sees the mercenary crew (sized in descending order of pop-cultural impact) letting loose the way all red-blooded American males were meant to - with a reckless blast of good ol'-fashioned firepower.

Lionsgate will be distributing 250 limited-edition copies of the poster (which made its debut over at HeroComplex) on "specialty canvas paper" at this week's San Diego Comic-Con, each of which will be signed by the film's cast. (Note: The panel for the film is being held in Hall H on Thursday at 4:45 with Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Van Damme, Terry Crews, Randy Couture and Dolph Lundgren in attendance.)

My grade for the poster: A+, because why not. Check it out below and let us know what you think!
