There are Star Wars toys and then there is Jabba’s sail barge, the Khetanna, which is going to be the biggest of all Star Wars toys to date – and you can own it.
Hasbro has begun a campaign that allows fans to back projects in order to make them a reality. Unlike Lego Ideas, which runs idea for new toys on its site, this project is being run on Hasbro’s HasLab, a crowdfunding site for new toys.
Jabba’s sail barge is part of a vintage collection which requires backers to put down a hefty $500, which is about £350. The target was to get 5,000 backers in order to make the project a reality. At the time of publishing, with three days left to go, it was already at 5,872 backers.
Hasbro describes the toy on its site: “With intricate detailing, premium materials, superior functionality and grandiose size, it is poised to be one of the most sought after, must-have items in the Star Wars collection.”
The Khetanna sail boat will measure four feet long with decks that are tall enough to fit 3.5-inch Star Wars figures. The side panels can also be removed to get more access to the ship’s innards. Included with the ship is, of course, a 3.5-inch Jabba The Hutt and trusty Yak Face. Head to HasLab now if you want to snap yours up before they’re all gone.
