Here is Hasbro's press release about the Sail Barge:
HASBRO is constantly working to create innovative and exciting new products that cater to the unique needs of consumers and fans. In 2018, we take that pledge one step further with the launch of HASLAB!
Announced at this year’s Toy Fair, HASLAB is Hasbro’s new platform that hopes to put dream products into the hands of fans. To that end, we’re excited to announce that the first HASLAB item is the biggest Star Wars vehicle Hasbro and Kenner have ever produced – fan favorite JABBA’S SAIL BARGE! Measuring approximately 4 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. You’re our only hope to make Jabba’s Sail Barge a reality! 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 3rd, 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.
Starting today, fans can place a pre-order for Jabba’s Sail Barge at HASBRO.COM/HASLAB. If the goal is met, the product will go into production. For more information on HASLAB and to follow the project’s progress throughout the 45 day pre-order window, visit HASBRO.COM/HASLAB and follow @HasbroPulse on social media.
Fans of Hasbro's Star Wars action figure line have been campaigning for a full 3 3/4" compatible Jabba's Sail Barge vehicle for more than a decade. Today, Hasbro has announced a new initiative which might make this dream come true! This is truly the best news we've received in many years when it comes to Hasbro's Star Wars toy line and we'd like to say thank you to Steve Evans and his Star Wars team for finding a way to give fans a shot at this incredible vehicle.
Fellow collectors, this is your chance to back this project and make the biggest Star Wars vehicle ever made a reality. All the details at HasLab:
With the return of the 3.75" The Vintage Collection from Hasbro in April 2018, we were wondering, what was your favorite part about The Vintage Collection?
