Hot Toys Infinite Ultron, Haslab GI Joe
Welcome to Toy Aisle, io9’s regular roundup of all the latest commodity opportunities to crush the wallets. This week, Hasbro is accelerating another crowdfunding project for a GI Joe classic, Hot Toys asks the question of what if, and NECA’s latest monster line has a turtle twist. Check it out!
Hasbro HasLab GI Joe Sky Attacker
The GI Joe the 80s toy line is best known for the enormous USS Flagg aircraft carrier playset that seemed as big as a dining table. But an aircraft carrier is nothing without an aircraft, and the GI Joe Skystriker played an equally important role in childhood fantasy warfare. Will Hasbro ever resurrect the USS Flagg? Stranger things have happened, but through his HasLab crowdfunding platform, the toy maker is now bringing back the Skystriker fighter with a new $ 230 model with more details, decals and accessories than the original.
The toy will even include two classic GI Joe O-ring figures – Ace and Wayne Ruthel – but HasLab is looking for 10,000 backers by early December to put it into production, and right now the campaign is just over 4,500. Come on, guys, we can’t let Cobra get back on its feet.

Dubbed Infinity Ultron, the massive 15 “action figure comes complete with its spear and a few alternate posing hands and … well, that’s about it, actually.

You will have to wait, most likely, a what if season two or three released before you can get a chance to buy it: Infinity Ultron is slated for release in late 2022-2023.[[[[Hot toys]
Hasbro Nerf LMTD Halo Needle
After the giant and very detailed reconstruction of the Halo MA40 Infinite Assault Rifle for almost two years, Nerf has finally added a first version of the Needler to his Halo collection. Its 10-shot barrel that shoots Nerf Elite darts is complemented by flexible needles and other accents that light up when the grip is gripped, powered by six AA batteries hidden inside. A display stand is also included, as well as a display mode that activates all of the blaster’s lighting functions without having to hold it. At $ 100, it’s twice as expensive as the Nerf Halo Infinite MA40 assault rifle, and it’s available for pre-order on Hasbro Pulse with delivery scheduled for January next year.
Hasbro GI Joe Retro Collection Snake Eyes & Storm Shadow O-Ring Figures
I have a nostalgic penchant for GI Joe but prefer the original 3.75 inch action figures from your youth? If you don’t want to shell out a lot of money for the Skystrike redux, Hasbro also released a pack of two classic o-ring figures through Hasbro Pulse which includes the deadly enemies Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow, with all of their original accessories and authentic card back packaging. The only thing that has changed is the price: the duo will set you back $ 40 if you decide to pre-order the set today, with delivery scheduled for early 2022.
NECA Universal Monsters x Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Thanks to his website and official Instagram account, NECA has teased a new line of crossover action figures featuring mashups from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and classic movie monsters from Universal. We’re not sure what the full line-up of 7-inch figures will include (with Halloween in a few days and ending the spooky season, NECA better hurry), but the first two revelations are Raphael as Frankenstein’s Monster and Leonardo as Ygor the Hunchback. The details are absolutely amazing for a 7 inch fig, including authentic costumes and each turtle’s weapons tailored to their monstrous alter egos. Pricing is not known, but the numbers are expected to ship in January of next year.
NECA Gargoyles Hudson figurine
NECA continues to tease its new line of action figures based on the Disney cartoon Gargoyles series from the 90s to company Instagram account, with the wise old Hudson being the latest revelation. There’s not a lot of info on what accessories he’ll include other than the sword on his belt, but the level of detail in this line (where can we get a leather breastplate like this?) continues to impress.
NECA Devilish death Ash Williams Ultimate Figure
To help celebrate the 40th anniversary of the original The Evil Dead film debut, NECA has a new figurine Ash Williams en road, but delivery is not expected until early next year. It is reminiscent of how young Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell were when they started the evil Dead franchise, and although it is too early to know pricing details, NECA’s Instagram account seems to have revealed most of Ash’s props, including an ax, trusty chainsaw, and rifle, i.e. his boomstick.

The latest addition to the Lego Art line, where colorful 1×1 poles can be assembled into a larger mosaic to create pop culture masterpieces worthy of being placed on a wall, is the new Together Create together. It comes with 4,138 parts and nine instruction manuals allowing a group of people to create smaller individual parts that can be combined into a larger thematic group later. Themes include food, patterns, icons, and interests, and the $ 120 set is available for pre-order now, with delivery scheduled for early December.
If you have kids at home and a giant arrangement of Brio wooden trains and tracks gobbling up floor space somewhere, now you can improve your railroad with cars based on the transit systems of places like New York, Chicago and New Jersey. The individual Municipal cars will set you back $ 17 each, which is more expensive than most of Brio’s offerings, but features authentic paint and decor that reflects the trains used to transport commuters to major cities across the country, minus the graffiti, vomit and other mysterious spots which are the best left a mystery.
