Hasbro has announced an HasLab project for the classic jet, and it’s a thing that every G.I. Joe fan would love to have.
This HasLab is currently open and taking orders. That will end on December 7th. The target to push this through is 10,000 orders. If you want one, you can put in your order here for $229.99.
Do you remember what it was like to sit in front of the TV and wait for G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero to come on after school? Or the pure unfiltered joy you got from hanging on to every mission? We do, and we want that for you. The Skystriker, o-ring Ace, and o-ring Wayne Ruthel aim to help you grab ahold of that feeling again. They’ll supply you with immediate out-the-box display possibilities that are sure to transport you back to the 1980s in style. Set your sights on all three unlocks and you’ve got a killer operation. Join us on this major mission by funding today!
Throwback: the early 80s. The hair is high and so is the volume of the music coming out of the boombox speakers. You’ve just discovered the coolest cartoon ever made, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. You can’t get enough of it. Will the Joes finally be able to defeat Cobra once and for all?!? You’ll happily help the cause by setting up elaborate missions with your favorite action figures, played out in sandboxes, swimming pools, backyards, and bedrooms. The only thing missing from your epic adventures is the baddest combat jet known to any Joe: the Skystriker. It’s time to fulfill — or relive if you were one of the lucky ones — your childhood dreams.
That’s right. It’s the 21st century now and for G.I. Joe’s first ever HasLab we are bringing the afterburner-level heat and re-issuing the Skystriker with some awesome modern updates and incredible, exclusive unlocks. All to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. Sure, the Skystriker has been done before (and it’s awesome every time) but never like this. Only with modern technology are we able evolve this classic combat jet by adding the most precise detail and design to bring it from the 80s to the FUTURE. Because the future is now.
The Skystriker isn’t the only incredible item you’ll be able to display in your G.I. Joe collection when you fund this HasLab. You’ll also get two o-ring figures with HasLab exclusive deco – Ace and Wayne Ruthel! The original fighter pilot, Ace, looks just as you remember him in a traditional deco scheme. And Wayne Ruthel has deco designed to call back to the original Skystriker packaging. If these two legendary action figures aren’t enough to blow your mind, we have even more to add!
You’ll be able to unlock up to 3 different tiers with even more exclusively decoed o-ring action figures and accessories, including Scarlett in a flight suit for the first time ever, Rip Cord in Night Force colors, and 2 Pit Crew members to man the runway vehicles. Fund this project today to start fighting for freedom wherever there’s trouble!
Yo Joe! Climb aboard the Skystriker with Scarlet and Duke to defend The Pit while evading Cobra pilots’ attempts to destroy your base. That’s a mission to remember. So memorable, our designers were inspired by this exact moment in animated history to create this HasLab. There’s no G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero without the Skystriker. A fundamental part of the G.I. Joe world, the Skystriker reminds us of pure childhood joy. Our designers understand this because they aren’t solely talented toy creators, they are massive fans too (so are us nerds writing this). They knew we needed to release a vehicle just as iconic as the o-ring figures we’re bringing back for the 40th anniversary.
You’ll be able to see the attention to detail and design that only a true fan could master. We remember when these magnificent jets were coveted by kids everywhere, because we were those kids. Some were lucky enough to own one, but some had to imagine the G.I. Joe battle scenarios without one. Not anymore. Today’s the day you can finally own a brand new Skystriker to display front and center in your G.I. Joe collection. Made by fans, for fans!
Already owning a Skystriker shouldn’t stop you from funding this HasLab.
The Skystriker soars into action with over 200 deco ops!
You’ll immediately notice the quality of engineering, right down to the moveable joystick in the cockpit.
The cockpit isn’t the only feature to get an update. There are all new functioning landing levers, one for landing gear and one for wings, swappable black tail fins to match the packaging art, a useable tow hook, and multiple options for dog bone pins to customize weapon load out.
The sculptural integrity is miles ahead of previous Skystriker This combat jet is made to last.
It’s customizable! The Skystriker comes with different sets of high-quality decals. One set to look like the Skystriker we know and love, and one to look like an F-14 Tomcat! Plus, additional stickers of the pilot’s names to put on the window for that extra personalized touch. AND a second canopy to decorate the heck out of with all those stickers.
