Collectors oohhed and ahhed when Hasbro announced their HasLab crowdfunding program’s first project; a massive (nearly 4 feet) vehicle recreation of Jabba’s Sail Barge from Return of the Jedi. Even though all fans had to go off of were some mock-up images and a prototype, there was a big response to it.
Now, with a little less than two weeks to go before the funding is over, Hasbro is giving fans a look at a completed version of the toy you’ll be buying. Thanks to this timelapse video of them putting it together, you get a better sense of how freaking epic it really is:
That’s not all, they’ve also released some new images of the toy with figures included to give you a sense of how it will work for play and display in the home. Better yet, they’ve also revealed that all backers will recieve and exclusive Yak Face figure, with special Power of the Force packaging. It’s a pretty great incentive, though at the the $500 price tag, I’m still struggling with justifying it for my own collection.
Still, there’s a lot of neat things going on with this, and I hope they get the backers/support they need so we can see more awesome toys like this in the future. If you’re looking to get in on the action, be sure to head to the HasLab website to pre-order.
