HasLab has issued an update to backers of the Vintage Collection Jabba’s Sail Barge. In this behind the scenes update, we get a look at the process of building the complex and intricate tooling for the barge. Check out this video for a better appreciation of what goes into creating something as massive as The Khetanna and you can click through to check out a few tooling images.
Here is a preemptive warning to those expecting a Behind the Workbench booklet for the Jabba’s Sail Barge. Due to the oversized envelope and the average size mailboxes people have, letter carriers are forced to fold/bend/crease the booklets to fit, yielding less than ideal conditions for this limited edition document. I would think a simple “DO NOT BEND” stamp could have alleviated some of the potential damage.
Thanks to Jack for the use of his image.
Hasbro Behind the Workbench Booklet is starting to arrive to those that backed the Jabba’s Sail Barge. Thanks to Michael Mask for posting these images in the comments.
Hasbro’s first HasLab campaign has comes to a close with a decisive response. Over 8,800 orders for Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) have been submitted and apart for a few cancellations and invalid charges, everything looks good to go. Thanks to all the collectors that followed our promotion of this campaign along the way here and on our social media channels. A heartfelt congratulations to Hasbro on their maiden voyage in bringing this to collectors. For those that backed the barge, look for the Workbench Booklet in the mail soon.
The barge has breached the 7,000 backer barrier with a little over a day until the deadline. If you have the funds, now is the time. #backthebarge
Just because the barge has reached its goal of 5,000 orders doesn’t mean the campaign’s over and we’ve forgotten about it. It’s currently sitting at 6,159 barges sold, and with 2 days left, it may finish near 7,000. Don’t miss out on this opportunity. #backthebarge
You did it! The required number of orders needed to proceed with the production of the Vintage Collection Jabba’s Sail Barge (with exclusive POTF Yak Face) has been reached and with 4 days to spare! If you still want one (or another one) and haven’t backed yet, you have until 11:59 pm on April 3 to make your decision.
