First Look at Hasbro's 4-Foot Replica of Jabba's Sail Barge From RETURN OF THE JEDI
Last month Hasbro announced a new toy crowdfunding division called Haslab. The program gives the fans the power to greenlight big epic toy projects and it launched with offering a four-foot replica of Jabbs' Sail Barge, The Khetanna, from Return of the Jedi. This will be the largest Star Wars toy that they've ever created!
If 5,000 people sign up to buy Jabba’s sail barge for $499 by April 3rd, Hasbro will begin mass-producing it. So far almost 3,000 people have signed up for one. I totally would do it if I had $500, to spend on it! But I don't.
Hasbro has recently released several new photos giving us a first look at the completed Sail Barge and the photos came with the following note:
Oh, and SURPRISE FROM JABBA! In addition to Jabba's Sail Barge, The Khetanna, HasLab backers will also receive a 3.75” Yak Face figure from The Vintage Collection, if the campaign is fully backed. (But wait, there's more!) This figure will come in exclusive Power of the Force card back packaging, paying homage to its original release in 1985. And would we be remiss to forget the exclusive Collector Coin? Don't worry - that's in there too.
So, if you're a hardcore Star Wars collector that has $500 dollar to blow on this thing... do it! Here are some additional details:
Measuring approximately 4ft long, this vast vehicle is a dream item for any Star Wars collection. Designed to captivate and inspire, The Vintage Collection Jabba's Sail Barge (The Khetanna) features exquisitely detailed, fan accessible decks that complement 3.75-inch figures (not included) allowing fans and collectors to recreate intense battles in the Star Wars saga. Its removable side panels also offer a unique opportunity to pose and set up incredible dioramas. Complete with premium deco, vintage packaging, and soft cloth sails, this dream product offers Star Wars devotees the quality and realism they know and love. Included with the vehicle is Jabba the Hutt (3.75-inch scale figure).
I also included a time-lapse video below the photos of Jabba's Sail Barge being built.
