Hasbro is famous for their variety of collectible Star Wars toys, having been responsible for the brand for decades. Now, they need your help, through their new crowd-funding platform, Haslab, to create a 4-foot-long toy replica of Jabba’s Sailing Barge, straight out of Return of the Jedi.
This large scale, highly detailed item features premium deco and vintage packaging. Jabba’s Sail Barge comes complete with exquisitely-detailed and fan accessible interior/exterior decks, a 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.
As of the publishing of this article, the project has the backing of just over 3000 fans, and needs just 5000 to go into production. All in all, it represents a cool opportunity for any super-fan to participate in the collectible process from Day 1, and end up with one-of-a-kind product for their efforts.
You have until April 3, 2018 to contribute the crowd-sourcing effort here, and from there, if there are enough backers, the replica sailing barge will move straight into production (you’ll of course receive one of your own for being a backer, as well as a 64-page collectible booklet).
