Very cool, but don't collect Vehicles so it's an easy pass for me, I do think it's a nice looking item though, would like those figures It comes with, but not footing the major bill to get them, happy this is getting funded for everyone who wants this in their lives.

 

Don’t you mean “footing the Wild Bill”? Get it? :P

I think it was Galactus that they added EXTRA tiers because everything was reached before the end of the Haslab man💡😀

Yeah, I remember that they added a Doom head for Galactus, but that wasn't what I was thinking of.  I feel like there was one where they shifted the number of orders it took, but like I said I could be completely wrong and just mixing it up with some other crowdfunded project (Eternia?)

I think you might be talking about the Engine of Vengeance. I seem to remember the unlocks being announced with higher backer numbers and those getting lowered closer to the campaign's dismal end. I could be misremembering, though. Not a lot of sleep in the last week.
Anyway, let's refocus things back to the Firefly. 11,403 backers as of right now. Slowed down, but it still seems pretty likely that Ripcord will be unlocked by this weekend.

The HISS funded very quickly and a couple of the tiers were kind of lame, so people suspected (but it was not confirmed) that they pushed the better stuff further out and inserted lame fillers in between.

It's nice to see be it out of fear of it not funding or they actually learned from the last failures to automatically include the stand and all the blast and missle smoke effects upfront instead of trying to make them an unlock tier..backed the hiss but some of the the unlocks were lame filler for a vehicle that's already at a premium pricepoint

he first stretch goal for the G.I. Joe Classified Series Haslab Assault Copter Dragonfly (XH-1) vehicle has been unlocked. The 6" Classified Night Force Rip Cord figure will now be included with the vehicle and Wild Bill figure since the campaign has now surpassed 13k backers.

We now await Hasbro to reveal what the second stretch goal will be for this campaign which will be unlocked if it surpasses 16k backers by July 17. Right now as I post this the campaign has 13,000 backers.
 

 
 

We will be sure to update you here once Hasbro reveals stretch goal #2.

Hasbro has revealed the second stretch goal for their G.I. Joe Classified Series Haslab Assault Copter Dragonfly (XH-1) Haslab campaing. Its of a 6" G.I. Joe Classified Series Jane “Glenda” Mullighan figure which will be unlocked if or when the campaign reaches 16k backers. Right now that campaign as I type this has 13,071.

Glenda in the original 3 3/4" line was an exclusive figure that was available carded in Argentina by the Plastirama toy company. She was never released as a figure here in the United States. Jane “Glenda” Mullighan was a master instructor with piloting skills that would rival those of any active Joe.
 

As an added bonus they've included a separate harness with this Classified version which is adjustable to fit multiple figure sizes and attaches to the hoist’s rescue hook.

The Night Force Rip Cord and Wild Bill are already included with the Dragonfly.

The original Glenda figure was a repaint of Scarlet and seems like a good bet Hasbro will use this mold to give us an updated classic Scarlet in the mainline. Also note the riffle Glenda has is the exact same one Laser Riffle specialist Flash had which suggests he might be in the works as well.

Finally I would say this headsculpt might make for a nice Cover Girl alternative head.

Well, there's the body for the Retro Scarlett, so that rumor is pretty much totally confirmed at this point. I like the idea of a female helicopter pilot in the Dragonfly, but I'm not sure having such an obscure character for the second tier (Glenda was exclusive to Argentina, I believe) is such a great idea. I want the character elsewhere, but part of me is thinking that Lt. Daina, formerly of the Oktober Guard, who joined the JOE team in the comics, and who has "helicopter pilot" listed as the secondary specialty on her file cards, would have been better, seeing as how her character is much more well known. She couldn't, and probably shouldn't, wear the Soviet snoopy cap with the red star anymore, but she could be exactly the same as Glenda from the neck up or given a combination hair and maroon beret (Czech special forces) to swap with the helmet. And I'd love to see an actual female version of the flight suit body they're using for Wild Bill and Ripcord.

I hope we get this figure so I can use the head for Cover Girl.

I hope we get this figure anyway, but I actually like Cover Girl's face sculpt. I had to exchange several figures until I got one wherw both eyes and the mouth were printed in the right place, but once I had a Cover Girl that looked the way she was supposed to, I could see how nice it actually is.

I've yet to see one where the face print was in the right spot so I'm hesitant to get her.  I got Falcon from the Pulse sale with my Premium Member 35% off.  I already put a new head on him LOL. I think it's a Power Ranger...

I get that. QC was really bad on that wave. And when I said several, I meant more than three.

I don't know what the Haslab count was when Glenda was revealed, but the current count is 13,203, so while the influx of backers doesn't seem to have sped up, it doesn't seem to have slowed down, either, so that's good.

Its a nice theory, problem is that it could also be applied to Airborne

https://toynewsi.com/278-48016

And Airborne seems to work better, actually. "Gunship gunner" is something that's actually been on file cards for Airborne in the past. If the second set of x's do say "team commander" it would be the first time those words were used to refer to General Hawk in the history of the franchise.

A team Commander should be Duke...😃👍
