An In-Depth Look At The Haslab Jabba's Sail Barge

Bespin refugee - February 28, 2019

Just over a year after it was first announced during the 2018 Toy Fair, the Haslab Jabba's Sail Barge should arrive at their destinations over the coming weeks. Lucasfilm’s senior manager of product development, Chris Dern, takes a look at the work that has gone into the finished product.

"Weighing in just shy of 14 pounds, and measuring at 49.35 inches long, 14.64 inches wide, and just over 17 inches from the base to the tips of the sails", the barge is made up of 250 individual parts, pieced together by both machine and by hand. To recreate the 'used universe' look, "the paint deco was painstakingly applied in layers, a mix of molding, airbrushing, and handpainting that makes each individual barge unique. “You can see the brush strokes,” Dern says, "

From the cockpit, to the prison cell, galley, and audience chamber, they tried to create a mix of authenticity and added play value. “The designers went into this really thinking of functionality and playability,” Dern says. “Our goal in our role here is, how accurate can we get? Whether it is scouring for an old set of blueprints, utilizing archived models, published materials, and/or entertainment footage, all of which helps guide us in our decision making and ultimately to the final result.”

"The ship is delivered with a 3.75-inch scale Jabba the Hutt, with detailed paint deco to match the grandeur of the Khetanna, and a special Vintage Collection Yakface figure. A carded version of the figure will be available for the mass-market release."

A lot of work went into the box art, as well, a 120 hour photoshoot which required 14 Hasbro employees, 900 pounds of sand, and one custom, posable Sarlacc.






For even more added play value, Hasbro recently revealed a new Desert Skiff vehicle, as well as, a Vintage Collection Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) figure and Skiff Guard 3 Pack, which should be available later this year.
