We are fortunate enough to provide you with a behind-the-scenes tour, courtesy of Hasbro, of Jabba's Sail Barge - The Khetanna! This 4-foot long vehicle which is slated to be a part of The Vintage Collection is currently being offered through a crowd-funding initiative at Hasbrolab.com.

This vehicle has been requested by fans for years and now is our chance to add it to our collections and it looks to be beyond worth every dollar: With intricate detailing, premium materials, superior functionality and grandiose size, it is poised to be one of [...]
