HasLab Sail Barge Passes 7,600, Star Wars Crowdfunding Ends at 11:59 PM Eastern Time

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 3, 2018

UPDATE: The item was backed with 8,840 Sail Barges sold, over the 5,000 goal.

HasLab's Star Wars Sail Barge now has over 7,600 supporters.  Obviously some must be doubling up, but that ain't bad - ends in just under 12 hours.   For those who haven't been following along at home, the vehicle includes a Yak Face on a Power of the Force cardback (seemingly with a slightly different image and Canadian-style layout) and needed 5,000 people to buy it for Hasbro to start production.   It's $499.99 plus applicable tax, and currently only ships to the USA and Canada unless you go through a third-party or set up your own freight forwarder.

Sail Barge Update - Maybe This Will Change Your Mind

A surge of support on the HasLab Sail Barge came Wednesday morning after EW.com and StarWars.com posted Check Out New Photos of the Fully-Painted Jabba’s Sail Barge Prototype from Hasbro.   While we all expected to see painted pictures before the end of the funding period, we didn't expect that it might include a bonus.   Now take notes on this part, some fans are unclear and you're going to be one of the smart ones.

HasLab Sail Barge - Now Valid in Canada, Eh

Hasbro sent along a note today to let us know that the crowdfunded 3 3/4-inch Jabba the Hutt Sail Barge - which will come in a vintage-style box, no  less - is now open to Canada.

Currently the tally is at 2210 fans plus mine, and you could be up here too.   Historically Canada does about 10% of what the USA does, and given the high prices to ship an item with extreme dimensional weight a lot of each item's price is going to go to getting it to your door.  Of course, it can't make it to your door if you don't sign up here now.

3485 Hasbro to fans - "Put up or shut up."  Well, not quite as bluntly.

Today Hasbro announced HasLab, it's own crowdfunding site. The goal is to do Kickstarter-like runs for ridiculously great toys for ultrafans, and they kicked it off with the most improbable thing in the line's rich history - Jabba the Hutt's Sail Barge.  Yes, a 3 3/4-inch Sail Barge.  No, you're not dreaming.
