Yesterday’s launch of the second Vintage Collection-based HasLab, the Razor Crest, found great success in its launch. The signature ship of The Mandalorian, at the end of the first day, was crowd-funded at 68%. While the price of the vehicle is $150 cheaper than Jabba’s Sail Barge, it should be noted that at the end of the first day, it only was backed at 11%. As can be seen below, the Sail Barge took almost the entire crowd-funding period to fully fund. The Razor Crest in contrast is on pace to fund in the next few days making the chance of unlocking the next two tiers very possible during the campaign.
While the website appears to still be having some troubles when trying to back the Razor Crest, it hasn’t been a problem for the 4,800+ that have funded at the time of print. We will be tracking the progress of the campaign as we did with Jabba’s pleasure craft and in 2018.
If you missed the HasLab panel reveal on the Hasbro PulseCon Live Stream, it will be posted back to YouTube on Monday, September 28th. As mentioned in our Hasbro PulseCon recap, it was revealed that The Mandalorian in Beskar armor will be joining the basic line of figures but will a plastic cape instead of a soft-goods one that comes in the HasLab. The reason for the soft-goods is no doubt so the figure can sit in the cockpit seat. Speaking of the cockpit, our friend and Star Wars comic book genius, Carlos Esteban Muñoz (aka SWComics) noticed that the knob is missing from the gear shift which just maybe a hint a possible addition to this set. The Child has shown to have an infinity for the gear shift topper so perhaps we’ll finally get Baby Yoda in 3 3/4″ scale.
Another cool feature of the Razor Crest is the removable panels which are meant to replicate the damage the ship took at the hands of the Off World Jawas. Patrick, Hasbro Star Wars Brand Marketer, stated if this project is funded collectors could be treated to more figures from The Mandalorian, like the Jawas to the mainline.
The press release on this ship states that the weapons seen in the weapons locker will be removable and are based off of what was seen in the show.
This vehicle, when funded, will be the first toilet (refresher) from the Galaxy far, far away to be portrayed in toy form.
Just like with the Sail Barge, have already shown our support for this project as we backed it in the very first minutes of the campaign and now it is up to you! The details are below and you still have 44 more days to back the project:
With the ongoing success and buzz around the Hasbro Pulse HasLab campaigns, HasLab is back with another exciting new creation – the HasLab Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Razor Crest. Beginning Friday, 9/25 collectors can pre-order and back the HasLab Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Razor Crest for $349.99. (Price in US/CAN through HasbroPulse.com. Price may differ internationally.)
If this campaign is backed with a minimum 6,000 backers by November 9, 2020 at 11:59 PM EST, the HasLab Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Razor Crest will go into production! To support this campaign go to the HasLab tab on HasbroPulse.com.
We look forward to seeing this come to fruition with all its tiers unlocked and hopefully over the next few months of Mando Mondays to see some companion Vintage Collection action figure reveals.
May the Figures with be with you!
