The description for their online store reads as follows:
Hasbro Pulse brings you product offerings from the brands you love. Star Wars The Vintage Collection Jabba's Sail Barge (The Khetanna): 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. 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 and Yak Face (3.75-inch scale figure).
Sammy Delco just purchased the lastest Star Wars The Vintage Collection figures in China and gave us a closer look at the head sculpts. Initially Hasbro announced during New York Comic Con 2018 that those figures would be straight re-releases, with the exception of changes to the legal statements on the back of the packaging. Well, it looks like Hasbro took the opportunity and implemented the photo real face printing technology, which is a definite upgrade and well worth upgrading to if you own the previous releases. Check out the comparison shots!
Update: Darth Vader has been added, and he as well was updated with the photo real face printing technology.
