About a month ago, we learned about Hasbro's new HasLab project when they announced their intention to recreate Jabba's Sail Barge as a deluxe vehicle measuring approximately 4 feet long. Roughly two weeks after that, we got some amazing photos of the finished product.
The HasLab project works like a cross between Kickstarter and Lego Ideas. In this case, Hasbro provides the idea and if enough people back the project it goes into production. The goal was to get 5000 people to pre-order The Vintage Collection Jabba's Sail Barge (The Khetanna) for $499 before April 3rd. If they hit that goal, the vehicle would get made.
Hasbro confirmed the project success on the HasLab site.
For years, Star Wars fans have yearned for the creation of Jabba's Sail Barge to add to their collections. With your support, the time has come. With intricate detailing, premium materials, superior functionality and grandiose size, it is poised to be one of the most sought after, must-have items in the Star Wars collection.
As of this writing, the project has 5823 backers which means they'll be the proud owners of this impressive collectible. Currently, Hasbro says the HasLab products are not guaranteed to be made for retail distribution so this may be a very limited run. The project has three days to go so you still have a chance to get one of your own.
