It has been teased for some time now, but the Hasbro HasLab G.I. Joe Classified Series Dragonfly XH-1 is now fully unveiled with the crowd-funding period now live. The Dragonfly is a massive 2.5 feet long and comes with pilot William "Wild Bill" Hardy.
The Dragonfly features rotating wings and an opening cockpit that can seat two 6-inch G.I, Joe figures. There are LED light-up features and various opening panels to reveal the inner working of the vehicle. The Dragonfly can be kitted out with a number of weapon components and also comes with a flight display stand and effect pieces. You even get a decal sticker sheet so you can customise your Dragonfly using
The HasLab Dragonfly needs a minimum of 10,000 backers to go into production and UK colletors will need to pay £289.99 before the 18th of July cut-off point (the cost wil be charged once the item goes into production). There are then the usual stretch-goals, with the first sitting at 13.000 backers which will add a 6-inch Night Force Ripcord figure into the package. There are further stretch targets at 16k and 19k - both appear to be additional figures.
If everything goes to plan the Dragonfly will ship in August 2024.
The Joe team has partnered with HasLab to create the very first G.I. Joe Classified Series 6-inch scale G.I. Joe Assault Copter Dragonfly (XH-1) with anticipated deployment in Summer of 2024.

Joe Classified Series Assault Copter Dragonfly (XH-1) along with an action figure of the latest G.I. Joe Classified recruit – William “Wild Bill” Hardy – with premium deco, detailing, and articulation for poseability. The vehicle itself is an unparalleled achievement of detail and features with a myriad of posing and display options.

About Me : As a child of the '70s and '80s I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force), and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licenses - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who, and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK-focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
