G.I. Joe Haslab Skystriker - New File Cards Coming With The Figures

by Jay Cochran
November 28, 2021
Hasbro today announced that the figures included with their Haslab G.I. Joe Skystriker will come on individual retro card backs and include new updated file cards. Ace and Wayne Ruthel will be included automatically with the vehicle if it meets it's minimum backer goal of 10k. There will be a new Scarlett figure in flight suit released if the set reaches 13k backers, Stealth Suit Ripcord at 16k backers and Pit Crew which will share a file card at 18k backers.

With just 9 days to go before the campaign ends, it has just 5,798 backers. Many people i've seen online have been asking from Hasbro a side-by-side comparison of the new Skystriker and the original one giving folks a detailed look at the differences between the two vehicles. Something which Hasbro has yet to do.

While these campaigns often get sizeable jumps in backers in the final days, as we head into the home stretch the likely hood of this one reaching 18k to unlock all the stretch goals is seeming less and less likely to me, but I guess only time will tell.

Sorry to hear the third tier wasn't made, but I'm happy for everyone that backed this. I know poor Joe doesn't get enough love these days. At least now you guys can say that GI Joe got more support than a Star Wars toy.?

Oh yeah, still we got tier two and that sweet Cobra crew team... I was more excited about that Cobra team than from the Joes line up.???

If they ever do a 6" HISS Tank or Rattler, I'm in trouble. Still love the 3 3/4" stuff (have a bunch), but my collecting focus has been 6" for quite a while.

Part of me hopes they just keep doing the smaller scale stuff and spare my wallet.

I'm glad we (The Joe fans that back it up) got tier 2 Ripcord unlocked... This will prove that we are glad that O-RING is back and that Haslab GI Joe is for real and with more projects to come in the future...???

I backed 3 last night ??

Not a bad haul overall but the Spring 2023 release is a pain...

I couldn't be happier! 16,805 backers for this awesome Skystriker. I hope this means that more o-ring Joe's are on the horizon. With 30 minutes left in the campaign I caved and bought a second Skystriker. I just couldn't resist. This was a grail toy from my childhood that I never owed, but played with when visiting my cousin. He also owned the first Cobra Rattler and Kenner X-wing that I ever played with. Awesome memories. I hope Haslab keeps these dreams coming in the near future. Go Joe!

it has been updated to

16,798 Backers

I still have my Kenner X-wing I got for Christmas in 1978 or was it '79 anyway poor things laser cannons are deteriorating ? electronics stopped working a long time ago

Well according to Hasbro during Pulse-Con they have a whole line of new o-ring figures planned, so this should just be the tip of the iceberg I would think.

So best Skystiker toy to date, 7 figures, 2 support vehicles and a display/Flight stand. Overall I would say not to bad.
