HasLab's Vintage Collection Jabba's Sail Barge is up to 4230 preorders as of this post. They still need 770 preorders to hit the 5000 preorde goal, but we have 5 more days to go. If this vehicle does get produces it will be one of the rarest Star Wars items produced, so if your on the fence about placing a preorder you may want to make up your mind pretty quick. Once April 3rd hits you are out of luck.

The Black Series 6-Inch Porgs 2-Pack arrived at my local GameStop store in Houston today. Had the employee check their system to see if all stores in my area received stock as well and he stated most stores received at least 2 of them today. Price is $6.99 each. If you would like to check or call your local store for stock, here is the SKU# 162528.
Just a note the Porgs 2-Pack box is pretty small at about 3.25-inches (Height) by 2.75-inch (width), so if you blink you may miss it on the shelf.Add a comment
Unless you been living under a rock you probably know that Toy R Us is closing all its US stores. As part of the closure they are going to liquidate all their stock, which was suppose to start yesterday but was delayed until today.
I stopped by my local Texas store today to find about 150 people waiting in line at 10am. I did manage to make it in after about 10 mins or so and made my way to the Star Wars isle. All Star Wars products are 10% off and as the days go by, the discount will increase. As of today I didn't see any new product, but the store employee said they will probably receive more trucks until the warehouse is empty.Add a comment
Lets Reiterate - Jabba's Sail Barge Will Never Hit Retailers In US & Canada - HasLab Is Your Only Hope
Ok folks after our Q&A with Hasbro today about the HasLab Vintage Collection Jabba's Sail Barge, lets reiterate on its availability in the US and Canada.
Per our conversation with Hasbro, Jabba's Sail Barge will only be offered through HasLab and will never be offered by any other retailer in the US or Canada at all. So if your hoping for this to show up at Target or Walmart in the future at a lower price, Hasbro stated thats not going to happen.
Here are the facts:
• Must get 5000 preorders By April 3rd or project is dead.
• Hasbro will fill all preorders exceeding 5000 as long as placed by April 3rd.
• Exclusive to HasLab in the US and Canada
• Will not Hit any Retailers in US and Canada
• There is no payment plan through HasLab currently (Use CC)
• Yak Face figure not exclusive, packaging and coin are.
This will be your only chance to own this vehicle. At the time of this post there are 3244 of the 5000 required preorders filled. If you would like to place a preorder, you have 12 days left to do so at HasbroLab.com.Add a comment
At the video chat with Hasbro today they gave us a tour of Jabba’s Sail Barge and pointed out the details (new and old) about the product itself and also sent us some new Press Images which can be viewed on our Facebook Page.
The Barge itself is extremely detailed and here are some of the things that stood out during our Chat.
• Jabba’s Dais slides left and right
• Trap door on deck opens to jail cell below (push button)
• All rooms have door openings (not closed off).
• Sails and supports can be removed in 1 piece.
• All ladders from lower deck have hatch openings to upper deck which figures can pass (except Gamorrean Guard)
• 2 Upper deck cannons that can be moved to 6 positions on rails
• Cockpit will only have some stickers to apply, some details will be painted on.
• Shutters open and close.
• Prison Door Slides open and close.
• No figure peg holes for figures except for 2 by Main Cannon.
Today we had a video chat with Hasbro about their HasLab’s Vintage Collection Jabba’s Sail Barge. Previously we were able to submit 5 questions to the Hasbro Team and we were able to get answers to all of them.
Q1) There has been some discussion between collectors worried on how orders will arrive at doorsteps. Will Hasbro take extra precautions to ensure that Jabba’s Sail Barge will arrive at doorsteps mint in mint box? Possibly special shipping or extra thick cardboard packaging shipped in double or triple boxes? After all we are spending $500 plus tax for this item and we all know how UPS and Fedex handles large boxes.
Answer: As collectors ourselves we are aware of packaging and shipping. The Barge will be pretty much fully assembled inside that White box we previous shown on HasLab. Within that box we are adding extra struts and box structure to protect and hold the barge. This product box will be placed in a shipper box that will be 1/2 to 1-inch double thick cardboard with extra corner protectors. I am sure we will do some testing and ship it across the US to see results before finalizing the shipping boxes. We are definitely spending extra time on this.Add a comment

An incredible addition to any collection, Jabba's Sail Barge comes complete with exquisitely-detailed and fan accessible interior/exterior decks, a Jabba the Hutt 3.75-inch scale figure, two soft-cloth fabric sails, and other realistic features that mimic one of the most notorious vehicles in the Star Wars universe."

Received Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi Ultimate Collector’s Edition 4K Combo Pack to review courtesy of Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment's PR. As in the past the review is about the quality of the video and audio and the contents included in this Ultimate Collector’s Edition 4K Combo Pack. We do not discus the storyline of this movie at all. We will try and keep this short and direct to the point.
I am really glad that Disney has embraced the 4K Ultra HD format and hopefully we will see past Star Wars movies remastered and released along with the continuation of future movies.
The Last Jedi 4K Ultra HD Disc is Disney's first Home Release to use both Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos. The industry standard is currently HDR10 (High Dynamic Range), but Dolby Vision HDR is making its way to more and more 4K TVs and Players. Some manufactures offer firmware updates to implement Dolby Vision HDR on past products, so be sure to check your 4K TVs and Players for updates.Add a comment

Was looking through my Facebook News Feed this morning and came across a article from LinkedIn stating that Kay Bee Toys will make a return this year (before Christmas) courtesy of Strategic Marks, LLC.
"As some of you know, our company Strategic Marks, LLC has acquired KB-Toys about a year ago. During that period, we had been working on several models to resurrect the "Great American Toy Store" and to make sure the stores can compete with Toys R Us, other brick and mortar stores as well as on-line retail. Well, with the demise of Toys R Us, this week, we have now accelerated our business plan and hope to have our stores up and running before Christmas. We're in discussions with many of the toy manufactures, as we try to find out the best way to support them and the 20% loss of the US toy market due to the Toys R Us liquidation. We believe we will have the infrastructure in-place and [hopefully] save the toy industry."Add a comment
