Hasbro’s Jabba the Hutt set is a ‘Star Wars’ fan’s dream—but there’s a catch
At this year’s Toy Fair, Hasbro launched HASLAB, a platform that allows fans to obtain the kinds of items they’ve long dreamed of, minimum amount of pre-orders pending. Its first product set for pre-order is a familiar one for Star Wars fans: Jabba the Hutt’s Sail Barge (or the Khetanna), the ship he uses to travel to watch Luke Skywalker and Han Solo be thrown into the Sarlacc Pit.
It’s a massive ship, one that’s made it tricky to create a scale figure of, and Hasbro’s proposed model encompasses that. The ship weighs nearly 14 lbs., is just over four feet long, and is 17 inches tall, meaning anyone who wants to collect it will need plenty of space to store it.
The Sail Barge is incredibly detailed with several 3-D greyscale photos revealing the kinds of details the ship will contain once it’s made. It has multiple rooms, including one large enough to store the Jabba figure that will accompany the set. You’ll also receive a booklet detailing the creation of Jabba’s Sail Barge—both the movie version and the scale version that you ordered.
Jabba’s Sail Barge isn’t cheap and will set you back $499.99 (plus tax), and Hasbro needs 5,000 pre-orders by the end of the campaign on April 3 before it will pledge to make it. With six weeks to go, Hasbro is already a quarter of the way there as the ship sails closer to becoming a reality.
