HASBRO UNVEILS GHOST RIDER ENGINE OF VENGEANCE HASLAB CAMPAIGN
Hasbro started its HasLab crowdfunding projects a while back to bring some special, unique collectibles to life. It started with the Star Wars The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Sail Barge, and it later transitioned to the Transformers: War for Cybertron series with Unicron, the Sentinel from X-Men for Marvel Legends, Galactus for Marvel Legends, the Razor Crest from The Mandalorian, and more recently, VIctory Saber from Transformers and the HISS Tank from GI Joe: Classified.
Robbie Reyes’s Ghost Rider and the Engine of Vengeance is the latest project to come from HasLab. It includes a 6″-inch scale Engine of Vengeance as inspired by the muscle car’s appearance in Marvel Comics All-New Ghost Rider, released in 2014. The Engine of Vengeance is scaled for 1:12 figures and is approximately 18.5 inches long, 7.5 inches wide, and 5.5 inches tall.
The car has 20 LEDs for light-up Hellfire effects in its tires, engine, grill, tailpipes, and driver’s seat headrest. The light-up features will require 3 AA batteries, which unfortunately are not included with this set, even for its whopping price of $350.00 plus tax and shipping. It also comes with six flame trail effect pieces for the car tires and tailpipes, two brimstone risers for displaying the car, and four interchangeable tires.
It also has an extra engine piece to convert the car from Hellfire Mode to Street Mode. Included with the set is a 6-inch scale Exclusive Marvel Legends Robbie Reyes Ghost Rider figure. It includes comic-inspired accessories and a real metal chain.
Now, here are the particulars. Fans will have from now until 11:59 pm ET on Oct. 31, 2022, to decide if they want one of their own or not. Prospective buyers are limited to only five pieces. If the project is successfully funded, the Engine of Vengeance is expected to ship in Fall 2023. The project requires 9,000 backers to move forward.
As of printing this article, the article has more than 3,100 backers. That’s more than a third of the required 9,000 backers in less than a day. So, it’s highly likely the project will be successfully funded and meet its tier unlocks. Here’s a more comprehensive gallery to see what the whole shebang comes with:
GHOST RIDER ENGINE OF VENGEANCE HASLAB TO FEATURE EARLY BIRD SPECIAL FIGURE
Now, let’s get into the fun extras. If the project manages to reach its initial funding goal of 9,000 backers by 11:59 pm ET on Sept. 23, 2022, all the fans who back the project before the end of Oct. 31 will receive an additional figure: a Marvel Legends Robbie Reyes Human Form 6-inch scale figure. The only way this figure will get made is if the project meets its funding goal of 9,000 backers by the end of Sept. 23. Otherwise, Reyes Human Form figure won’t go into production.
The Engine of Vengeance will have opening doors on the passenger and driver’s sides. 6-inch figures can fit in both seats. The passenger seat can also be removed to put another 6-inch figure in the backseat, so it can fit three figures at once. The trunk has also been designed to open and hold all of Ghost Rider’s accessories. The wheels can roll, and the front wheels can be manually turned in different directions. It also has a skull gear shifter.
Not yet revealed are the additional tier unlocks if the project surpasses its initial funding goal. Hasbro teased that they are reaching “into the depths of the Marvel underworld” for some additional unlocks to the campaign. However, fans will have to wait to find out what the stretch goals and unlocks are later on.
The Hasbro Marvel Legends team looks to have outdone itself once again with this new HasLab reveal, and they did it well ahead of this year’s PulseCon. PulseCon is running on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.

What’s more, Hasbro also recently revealed a new Marvel Legends Series Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider, with a retro card back, that’s also now available for preorder on the Hasbro Pulse website.
