Coming out of the New York Toy Fair is some very interesting and exciting news from Hasbro.
They have created their own crowdfunding site called HasLab and their first project is the creation of the iconic Sail Barge from Return of the Jedi.
This barge will be in the 3 3/4 scale from all the famous Star Wars figures we all cherished as kids. With that in mind, this model will be four feet in length and seventeen inches tall! It will be a sight to behold. It will include fully decorated interiors and even a Jabba the Hutt figure!
There is so much that is going to be put into this vehicle it will be incredible. So what’s the catch? Well, first they have to get to 5000 minimum backers at a price tag of $499.00 and a delivery date of February 2019.
I am not sure what it will retail for, but I am hoping for a substantial saving! I am such a big fan of the original three movies that I was just shocked and amazed when I saw this announcement today. I will be one of those 5000 backers. What am I going to do with it you ask?
Well, it will find a place of honour above our video screen in the U.S. Studio! You have until April 3rd, 2018 to place your order.
What do you think? Are you as excited as I am?
