Last we saw Red Skull, he was making a shocking cameo in Avengers: Infinity War. Enslaved by the Infinity Stones to serve as protector of the Soul Stone, Captain America’s old nemesis guided Thanos to the location of the powerful gem, which exacted a gut-wrenching price for its possession.

Those lucky enough to be heading to the San Diego Comic-Con next week don’t need intergalactic transportation to catch up with the crimson-headed villain. As one of its coveted convention exclusives, Hasbro is offering a deluxe 6-inch Red Skull action figure, accessorized with the Tesseract, aka Space Stone aka Cosmic Cube, which he wielded in Captain America: The First Avenger and which powered his Hydra army. The $59.99 limited-edition set also includes your own personal version of the Infinity Stone (complete with authentic light-and-sound effects) to help accomplish whatever diabolical deeds you can dream up. Here is Yahoo Entertainment’s exclusive sneak peek at the Marvel Legends Series Red Skull and Electronic Tesseract. Hail Hydra!
