The tally currently stands at over 5700.  The Sail Barge Khetanna is going into production!  If you have not ordered one and you're still on the fence about it, you've got until 11:59 PM on Tuesday, April 3rd to place an order.

The tally as of 1:00 pm ET is 4855.  The sail barge just needs a little less than another 150 backers to go into production.  And it looks like it may hit the 5000 backer goal within the next couple of hours.

There are also rumors that Hasbro could add another sweetener to the campaign for backers who got in under the 5000 backer threshold.  But these are *RUMORS* only at this time.

Thought this was solid.  Took some departures from the TV movie.  More graphic.

Check out this Bloomberg article about Hasbro and their STAR WARS - THE LAST JEDI toy line:

Hasbro CEO Admits Making Mistake With ‘Last Jedi’ Toys

Feel free to read the full article.  But the gist of it?  Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner stated that the toy line for THE LAST JEDI was released too far in advance of the theatrical release of the movie.  And there is a consensus that there may be franchise fatigue with some 20 films fielding licensed toy lines.

The strategy moving forward may involve a toy line launch closer to the theatrical release of a film.  And notably, the SOLO toy line is rolling out in April, approximately a month before the movie is released in theaters.

The price seems to be the big stumbling block in this case.  $500 is not an insignificant amount of money for a lot of people.  And if you look at the price history of large Star Wars vehicles over the past 20 years, the jump in price is VERY substantial:

1999 - EPISODE I - Naboo Royal Starship - $99.99
1999 - EPISODE I - Fambaa & Gungan Warrior - $75.00
2002 - SAGA - Imperial Shuttle - $99.99
2004 - OTC - Millennium Falcon - $49.99
2006 - THE SAGA COLLECTION - Imperial Shuttle - $59.99
2008 - CLONE WARS - AT-TE - $99.99
2008 - LEGACY COLLECTION - Millennium Falcon - $159.99
2009 - CLONE WARS - Clone Turbo Tank - $99.99
2010 - CLONE WARS SOTDS - AT-AT - $99.99
2011 - CLONE WARS - Republic Attack Shuttle - $79.99
2012 - VINTAGE COLLECTION - Millennium Falcon - $249.99
2012 - DISCOVER THE FORCE - MTT - $129.99
2012 - VINTAGE COLLECTION - AT-AT - $149.99
2013 - VINTAGE COLLECTION - Republic Gunship - $119.99
2015 - THE FORCE AWAKENS - Millennium Falcon - $149.99
2015 - BLACK SERIES - First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter - $179.99
2016 - ROGUE ONE - AT-ACT - $299.99
2017 - THE LAST JEDI - BB-8/Flagship Playset - $149.99

The jump up to $500 is really big.  Especially after most people played the sale/clearance game on the last few high end offerings.  The Haslab model doesn't allow people to do that.

Surprised this hasn't reach its inital goal yet, But given the time frame its not 100% surprising.

I have no doubt this will get made, but as much as I'd to get one, I don't have the cash now & won't for the forseeable future.  (Need to get a car)

If they had a longer prep time, I think it would have helped people save up.

They haven't really given updates (except for the painted model) as much as other Kickstarters.

International shipping is a general nightmare, so I get why they aren't opening it up until they get the 5000+ backers.

Hoping Haslabs does take off & it becomes a great way to get figure packs, troop builders, cantina aliens, other special packs, that are more collector based.

It seems like there was a significant lull in backers about a week or so into the campaign.  But from what I've read it seems that they will start off very strong and then dip down for a while.  Close to the end of the campaign there tends to be another surge.  I'm wondering if it's going to surge enough to break through that 5000 mark?  The current count is 3662.  But in the course of a week the campaign gained around 1000 backers.  And no doubt the arrangement that Dark Side Toys has made to accommodate European buyers has made a significant impact, even if those buyers are being charged somewhere around $800!

I am hoping they make it. I signed up for a barge. A lot of people have ordered 2 and some 3 in hopes of selling off the second one or in hopes of selling off the yak face figure for big dollars. I don't think they will sell well on the secondary market for a long time if that's what people are banking on. If people want the barge then they have had over a month to get it. I think the barge looks great and has a lot of detail and would love to have one. I'm only hoping more people or etailers sign up for some before the end. Numbers really jumped when they showed painted pics and added the yak face figure.
