Thanos once flew a helicopter in the comics — now it can be yours!

While we have lots of thoughts on what will transpire in next year’s sequel to Avengers: Infinity War, having Thanos tool around in a helicopter is not one of them. But fans of Marvel Comics may recall a classic, if bonkers, storyline that featured the Mad Titan and would-be master of the universe on a joy ride in his tricked-out chopper.

Now, Mattel has crafted a limited-edition Hot Wheels homage to the vehicle that will exclusively be available to attendees of San Diego Comic-Con, and Yahoo Entertainment has the sneak peek.

The die-cast helicopter, featuring Thanos at the controls, comes packaged in its own Cosmic Cube (known to Marvel Cinematic Universe fans as the Tesseract initially wielded by Red Skull in Captain America: The First Avenger).
