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.
There is one 3.75″ Black Series figure that has been highly requested for re-release since it was so difficult to find when Walmart held its exclusivity. Collectors can breathe a sigh of relief that the Rogue One Scarif Stormtrooper will be getting the “TVC” treatment. Another character joining the collection is rumored to be Leia in Boushh Disguise. It is unknown if it’s an all-new version or repacked (from 2015) but is probably the latter as the line is balancing repacks with all-new sculpts. Expect these along side Yak Face and Klaatu in 2019*.
*I sure hope these don’t get cancelled.
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.
Eagle-eyed commenter Jeff recently noticed that the image of Yak Face used on Hasbro’s mockup for the exclusive Power of the Force version (included with the Sail Barge) is not the same stock photo originally used for the 1985 version. Hasbro design team, if you’re going to do this thing, can you revise the art to better match the original release?
The flood continues as Instagram follower madcollector24 reports finding wave 1 of the 2018 Vintage Collection at Fry’s Marketplace in Chandler, Arizona
EW.com has posted the first look at a painted prototype of Jabba’s Sail Barge. They also reveal that if fully funded, the Barge includes a carded Power of the Force version of Yak Face (the retail version will be issued on a Return of the Jedi-style cardback.) Head on over to check out the images and a time-lapse video of the process.
Backing for the HasLab Sail Barge Playset is now just north of 2,800 pledges. With a little over two weeks remaining, will this project be funded in time? If you want to see this project realized, commit to #backthebarge today at Hasbro.com/haslab
Yakface forum moderator localgotal is back again with another round of Concept Series figures he’s created. This latest update harkens back to the slimy entourgage of the illustrious Jabba the Hutt.
Today we get a fun treat from Yakface contributor and forum moderator localgotal – the return of the Yakface Concept Series (with some great eye candy for some new “what if” figures).
