G.I.Joe Fans across the ‘net have been talking about the True Heroes U-53 Helicopter Playset at Toys R Us. This vehicle is huge, with dimensions that tower over the G.I.Joe Eaglehawk. How so? Well, the dimensions on the U-53 are 16.00 x 32.40 x 7.00, whereas the Eaglehawk are 4.2 x 17 x 8.5 inches! Ripe for customizing, many are envisioning how they can incorporate this awesome new Helicopter in to their collection.
Now, before you go out on the hunt, please note that the TRU website offers free shipping on orders over $29, so since the U-53 will run you $49.99 before taxes, shipping will be free. We’ve mirrored a full assortment of images of the U-53 along with the official product description from the Toys’R’Us website, so make sure to read more below to check it out.

There’s trouble in the air and only the long-range combat search and rescue U-53 helicopter can access the site and make a rescue. Rotating helicopter blades, light and sound action and realistic details make this helicopter one that is fully equipped to answer the call of duty. When your comrades are in trouble, the U-53 can swoop in and lower the rescue stretcher to bring a brother back to safety. When you’re on the ground, the back hatch opens to release the utility vehicle, so you’ve got even more protection on the ground. Designed specifically to handle epic missions and battles, this mighty chopper is best suited to handle the toughest situations. It’s never-ending creative and imaginative military play with this Sentinel 1 helicopter set.
