A few weeks ago Hasbro announced a new crowdfunding platform called HasLab, and the first item that fans of the toy maker could back is a massive replication of Jabba’s sail barge from Return of the Jedi. If 5000 backers pledge $499.99, the barge will get commissioned, and all those who backed it will get the barge, which is meant for 3.75″ scale Star Wars figures. Backers will also get an exclusive 3.75″ Yak Face figure for their support.
Up until today the barge was only seen in prototype form, but thanks to an EW exclusive, we can now see the barge in its finished form glory. You can see it painted with figures and accessories placed throughout it. It really is more of a massive diorama than a toy, but I guess if you live near a desert you could definitely lug it out there and reenact the Sarlac Pit scene to your heart’s content.
You can check out the gallery below, which also features a shot of the exclusive Yak Face figure. If you have the cash and love for Hasbro toys, there’s still time to back the barge over on the HasLab site.
May the Force be with you, always…
