Hasbro's latest HasLab the Razor Crest ship from The Mandalorian continues to fly high as it has successfully funded the first tier of 8,000 backers. After funding on the second day, backers were offered an Escape Pod as a Tier 1 stretch goal. This feature, while never featured in Season 1 of the show, fits into the top of the ship. Shortly after the fully funding this morning on the fifth day, the second tier goal was announced in the form of a brand new addition to the 3 3/4" line. The Child (Nevarro) will come carded with the HasLab with an "end-of-season-1-pram". No word yet if this will be exclusive to the Razor Crest but with the location naming and pram version, there is [...]
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 [...]

In just under 26 hours, Hasbro's latest HasLab funded completely. The Marvel Legends collectors showed up in strides when it came to backing the $350 Sentinel which stands at 26" tall. The figure was limited to just five per person. Its body a towering, technological marvel, the Sentinel scans the world for its quarry, a searching light emanating from its chest, its glowing eyes a warning… and a threat. Programmed with only one objective, to destroy all mutant life on Earth, the Sentinel will not hesitate, will not falter, and will never ever stop hunting. Rising from the pages of Marvel comics, appearing in everything from cartoons to movies to video games, the Sentinel is as a monumental part of Marvel lore, an iconic [...]
This afternoon, Pacific Standard Time, the crowdfunded Jabba's Sail Barge (The Khetanna) and new centerpiece of The Vintage Collection, went on sale on eBay for international collectors. Four-hundred Barges were put up for Buy It Now and within 9 minutes and 52 seconds, they were completely sold through. Even more impressive is that over 300 of them were sold in the first 2 minutes. Now that what we believe to be the remaining Barges that were produced have been sold, we are now free to guesstimate how many over all Barges were produced by Hasbro. We know Hasbro stated no more than 10,000 were produced. We know 8,810 were crowdfunded by American and Canadian collectors. And now we know that 400 were sold internationally. So [...]
It was just over a year ago when Hasbro announced the HasLab initiative and when we couldn't log on fast enough to lend our support (we believe we were just about the 10th backer). For the next 45 days we tracked the daily progress of The Khetanna, knowing full well at first it was not a sure thing but as we predicted (at about the halfway point) the Barge became a reality just before the deadline. Flash forward a year and a month and the toy/playset that sits before us was both worth the wait and worth every single penny. Upon our Monday delivery of the barge, Sprocket the Minature Schnauzer quickly claimed it for himself. As much as he thought he we would make the perfect [...]
Today is the final day to support HasbroLab.com's Jabba's Sail Barge! By backing the barge today you will guarantee a February 2019 delivery of the largest toy Hasbro has produced since GI Joe's USS Flagg released in the mid-eighties. The Khetanna was fully funded this past Friday and backers will be receiving the Behind the Workbench booklet next week. This project is quite exciting for longtime and Vintage Collection collectors. So much so that even the person who helped destroy the barge is promoting Hasbro's version: #ad Like I told Jabba -- this is your last chance! #BackTheBarge, or you’ll regret it! Only 1 day left to support #HasLab & add this incredible vehicle to your collection. You don’t want to be the next #SarlaccSnack! Find out more info [...]
Hasbro's new venture of crowdfunding through HasbroLab.com has officially been supported by collectors and fans as at 10:45 AM PST, Jabba's Sail Barge crossed its goal of 5000 backers. According to the HasLab website, she will launch into production upon funding. The massive 4 foot vehicle will be shipped to backers in February 2019. Fans will start receiving next month a Behind the Workbench booklet which details the creation process of The Khetanna. Congrats to Hasbro for a successful campaign and here's to a new era of giving fans and collectors items that would not work in normal retail avenues. We'll be seeing your over the dunes of Tatooine!
Hasbro has shared with us a few items that show the true scale of The Khetanna!

You can be one of the 760 backers still needed to make this amazing vehicle a reality! You have until April 3rd but don't delay and #backthebarge today at HasbroLab.com.
This morning Entertainment Weekly gave us a first look at of a fully painted Jabba's Sail Barge which is currently being crowd-funded by Hasbro's new Hasbrolab.com. The impressive paint application truly make all the details and accessories come to life on this potential Vintage Collection piece. The most exciting news of the day is the announcement of a bonus figure. A Power of the Force carded Yak Face will be given to barge backers. This figure on this particular cardback will be exclusive to the HasLab barge. A regular Vintage Collection version on a Return of the Jedi card will still be released in the vintage line later next year. Hasbro has posted a time-lapse video of the painting process for the model seen [...]
