Hasbro's Haslab G.I. Joe Skystriker Reaches Minimum Funding Goal With Over 7hrs To Go

by Jay Cochran

Fans of Hasbro's 3 3/4" G.I. Joe line can breath a sigh of relief in knowing at the very least the Haslab Skystriker will move forward into production. It has surpassed the minimum funding goal of 10k backers with over 7 hours to go as I type this. Now the question remains if it can get to it's first stretch goal for the new O-Ring Scarlett In Pilot Suit figure. In order for that figure to be included, the campaign will need to reach 13k backers by 11:59 PM ET tonight. At the pace the campaign has been moving most of today, while not guaranteed, its at least looking possible.

Even if Scarlett is not added, folks will get the Skystriker itself, new O-ring figures of Ace and Wayne Ruthel. They will get parachutes, missiles, blast effects, 2 support crew vehicles, decal sticker sheets, 3 Cobra Figures (Cobra Commander (Mickey Mouse Cobra Symbol Variant), Cobra Soldier and Cobra Flight Crew Member) , Cobra decal sticker sheet and display flight stand.

Besides Scarlett, if somehow the campaign where to get to 16k backers, a new O-Ring Stealth Suit Ripcord figure would be included and at 18k backers two O-Ring G.I. Joe Flight Crew members would be added.

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.
