First finished look at Jabba’s Sail Barge From Hasbro
At this year’s Toy Fair, the folks at Hasbro announced the launch of Haslab, a crowdsourcing platform intended to put dream products into the hands of fans. Their first project is the biggest Star Wars vehicle Hasbro and Kenner have ever produced: A four-foot long Jabba’s Sail Barge. Now, Entertainment Weekly has your first look at a fully-painted prototype (check it out in the video below along with photos in the gallery), which also includes our photos of the unpainted prototype taken at Toy Fair!
Measuring approximately four feet long, this large scale, highly-detailed item features premium deco and vintage packaging. An incredible addition to any collection, Jabba’s Sail Barge comes complete with exquisitely-detailed and fan-accessible interior/exterior decks, one Jabba the Hutt 3.75-inch scale figure, two soft-cloth fabric sails, and other realistic features that mimic one of the most notorious vehicles in the Star Wars universe.
Haslab takes inspiration from other platforms by inviting participants to support the product by backing the project up front by placing a pre-order. For Jabba’s Sail Barge to go into production, Hasbro must meet a certain minimum threshold of 5,000 pre-orders. It’s up to the fans to support the campaign and help successfully reach that goal by 11:59pm ET on April 3, 2018. Those who pre-order the item will also receive “Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna): Behind The Workbench,” a premium, 64-page booklet that goes behind the scenes of the design and development of the actual Sail Barge film set piece and Hasbro toy and includes set photos, product blueprints, interviews, and more.
