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?
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.
