G.I. Joe Haslab Skystriker Update And A Hint At A New O-Ring Dr. Mindbender Figure?!?

by Jay Cochran
November 16, 2021
Hasbro today released a new Skystriker Situation Report video for their Haslab campaign and in it they give us a new look at the grey model for the vehicle. They also are seemingly teasing Dr. Mindbender as one of the characters that will soon be getting their updated O-Ring treatment in the Pulse exclusive 3 3/4" line they announced last month during Pulse-Con. They hold up a Mindbender figure which I believe was an original one asking people if they would like to see the character featured in the line.

With just over 21 days left the Skystriker campaign has 5,448 of the minimum 10k backers needed to go into production.

I am a huge fan of Star Wars, Transformers, and G.I. Joe. All properties of Hasbro. I backed the Barge, RazorCrest, and Victory Saber but I do believe Hasbro is not spacing these projects enough. Especially when u take the RazorCrest project and updates have been few and far between.

I definitely think the Skystriker is getting funded. Will it hit the extra tiers? I hope so... I don't think Hasbro can afford for it not to hit those tiers (even if they make up the needed backers). If these Haslab projects stop hitting their maximum stretch goals people are really going to think twice about supporting them.

I'd really love the skystriker, its a bit expensive.. but its very possible that this Lt. Ruthel figure will become the RAREST Gi Joe. So who knows?!

I really hope the Skystriker gets funded with all tiers unlocked. I still want this if none of the tiers are unlocked. Just wish I could order more than 1 but bills.

May it fare better than the Rancor.

Hasbro today released a third "Situation Report" video for their G.I. Joe 3 3/4" Haslab Skystiker. In today's video they give us a better look at the two pilots included with the jet with Ace and co-pilot Wayne Ruthel which is the first time we are getting him in the line. Ruthel was shown in the original boxart for the Skystriker but never included.

As of today the campaign which costs 229.99 has 5,632 of the minimum 10k needed in order for this vehicle to move into production. The campaign has just over 14 days to go before it ends. Check out some images from the video below. Assuming the Skystriker gets funded, you can also enter for a chance to win one for FREE in a contest we are running here on TNI.

I backed the Skystriker the moment after it was announced. I really hope this new o-ring initiative takes off. Hasbro didn't do themselves or anyone else any favors by launching three HasLabs concurrently. I believe if they would have done one at a time, the HasLab they began with would already be funded and unlocking tiers. If you're an 80's kid the chances are pretty good that you love Star Wars, Ghostbusters, and G.I. Joe. Why Hasbro thought this was great idea is beyond me. At this point they're only getting my money for a Skystriker and that's only if it funds.

I think this is an excellent choice for a haslab and I hope it gets funded.

Emily's photo was taken behind the scenes at a shoot they did today, and they plan to post the official shots after Thanksgiving, so genuine side-by-sides may be coming in a week.

they are really pushing it because time is running out

there is no way any of the stretch goals will be met on this

I heard a rumor their other HasLab offerings are loosing lots of backers

I wonder if the same might happen to the Skystriker when time starts to run out & people realize the stretch goals they want won't happen

If they did it like that Skull Ship Kickstarter with a changeable seat to fit a 6" figure I might be tempted to get this.
