GI Joe-Scaled Aliens Power Loader Is Pricey but Nifty



For $99.99 – it is an import toy, after all – at least you’re getting an awesomely weathered look. I miss dirty washes on things – McFarlane still does them, but they were the biggest loss we suffered when Hasbro took over Marvel Legends from Toy Biz.

This Power Loaders is fully articulated, scaled to the 4-inch xenomorph figures Hiya Toys already makes, and is specifically made for their ugly, off-model Hicks figure, but if you’re like me, you’re imagining what Duke or Roadblock could get up to in that thing. Or maybe Jar Jar, who could use it to exterminate the entire alien race by accident.
