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 above.
After nearly 200 hours, 50 different paint colors and multiple pieces of camera equipment to get the perfect shot, we present to you the fully painted model of Jabba’s Sail Barge – The Khetanna. No, this is not an old Jedi mind trick. #HasLab #BackTheBarge pic.twitter.com/SNv7Cq8jo3
