Feeling gutted after the events of last night's episodes. 

They kinda "borrowed" the ending from X-Men United.

From LATEST NEWS:
Hasbro made a HUGE Vintage Collection vehicle announcement at Toy Fair.  Go to https://www.hasbrolab.com/ for images and video of the proposed Vintage Collection Sail Barge Khetanna.

This vehicle represents Hasbro's first venture into crowd-funding a potential offering.  The campaign runs now through 11:59 ET on April 3rd, 2018.  Hasbro needs a minimum of 5,000 backers in order for the project to move forward.  Each commitment to purchase the Sail Barge costs $499.99 plus tax.  If there are enough backers, methods of payment will be charged on April 4, 2018.

WHATS INCLUDED:
-The Vintage Collection Jabba's Sail Barge (The Khetanna) complete with exquisitely-detailed and fan accessible interior/exterior decks, two soft-cloth fabric sails, and other realistic features that mimic one of the most notorious vehicles in the Star Wars universe

-Jabba the Hutt 3.75-inch scale figure

-Classic Vintage Collection packaging with special limited edition HASLAB seal of authenticity
Jabba's Sail Barge (The Khetanna): Behind the Workbench, a premium, 64-page booklet, that goes behind the scenes of the design and development of the actual Sail Barge film set piece and Hasbro toy. Complete with set photos, product blueprints, interviews, and more.

-A dedicated, ongoing stream of behind-the-scenes development updates, keeping you informed as The Vintage Collection Jabba's Sail Barge (The Khetanna) makes its way from a dream at Hasbro to a reality in your hands (subject to reaching the minimum backing goal).

-If the minimum number of backers (5,000) is reached by 11:59 EST on April 3, 2018, The Vintage Collection Jabba's Sail Barge (The Khetanna) estimated ship date is 2/28/2019 and Jabba's Sail Barge (The Khetanna): Behind the Workbench booklet will start shipping on 4/4/2018.



This topic really merits a thread of it's own.  Who is taking the plunge on the Sail Barge?  And are you optimistic that Hasbro will meet their 5000 order goal to go into production?

There really is a lot to digest here.

-6" BLACK SERIES - Hasbro seems to be touching on most of the core characters from SOLO along with some troopers, but I also see that they're holding back some things.  They seem to be ticking off all of the TESB bounty hunters which is welcome.  I also like the Hoth Leia along with Vice Admiral Holdo.  And the Gamorrean Guard looks really cool, too.

-HAN SOLO 3.75" LINE - There seems to be a bunch of similar characters here as we've got in the 6" TBS line, and word is that Hasbro is holding off on some items to be revealed closer to the SOLO line launch in April.  In this range I really like the pack-in weapons/accessories with the figure 2-packs.  They looks a bit more like the lived-in kind of world we've grown accustomed to, and not ridiculous like the accessories we got in the TFA line.

-THE VINTAGE COLLECTION - There's plenty to talk about here!  Lots of cool offerings, but it's tempered with some pessimism.  And that's because the first wave is almost ENTIRELY repacks except for ONE new figure.  Snoke will be the only new figure/character in that entire wave.  And this sort of rollout for a line is discouraging because we've seen this before, where a line rolls out with reissues first.  Those linger because people don't want to buy the same figure again.  That causes a traffic jam in distribution and potentially stalls the truly new figures from hitting the pegs.

Beyond that?  The new figures look really good.  I'm glad to see that they're going to offer a TVC Han Solo from SOLO in either the 2nd or 3rd wave of the line.  I'm a little put off by some of the figures being WalMart exclusives (TLJ Rey & SOLO Mimban Stormtrooper) since WalMart really dropped the ball with their most recent TBS exclusive.

The Imperial Tank from Rogue One was pretty awesome.  It's going to be a little pricey, but it also got some amazing details.  But hands down, the Sail Barge stole the show!  WOW.  I still can't believe that they came up with a plan to make this.  And to go the crowd funding route, too?  As I'm writing this the campaign has over 1100 backers.  They need to get to 5,000 in order to go into production.  For myself?  I love the idea and it looks amazing.  But $500 is a lot of money.  Granted, I've got a lot of surplus stuff from my collection that I've been selling off.  Can I sell off enough of it to fund this?  We'll see.
