Jabba Barge model is being shown.  Tons of features and a Jabba included. 

This is as exciting and new as I can think the line maybe has ever been.  Opens a huge door for collectors to put up or shut up.

Tried to keep you guys updated here.  Sorry we couldn’t attend but it’s always a busy time of year for Jeff and myself.  The Star Wars portion is done.

Who is gonna pony up $500 for a 4’ Skiff with tons of interior detail a Jabba Figure and 2.5 square feet of display space by april 3rd?  🤔

I think I might.  I’ve bought cars for less that I drove for years and this I won’t send to the scrap heap after a few years. 🤷‍♂️

Thanks Jesse, appreciate the efforts with the updates.

I think the crowdfunding thing is a fiendishly brilliant idea. If it fails to get funded they can place the blame squarely on collectors. I hope it succeeds though. It might be the only way I'll ever get a proper Ghost. Or the Twilight!

Okay... so I saw the video now... it is 3.75" scale and I think I'd have to be in...

The only question I have...  if it hits 5000 backers, does it get produced in full, or do they make them to order?

I love this post! For what is says both before and after I decipher it!

But seriously Jesse, thanks for the live updates. We all appreciate it, especially when it is such fun news for a change!

I am, already submitted my backing for 2 via the Hasblab site. The count was less than 20 backers when I did, so I can proudly say I did my part for making this a reality.

Do you pay now or only if it makes 5,000?

As of this post it's already at 118, and I'm 80% sure I'm going to bite the bullet on this one...

Only if it makes it to 5000.

Amazing. But I need more than 45 days to talk my wife into $500. 4/3/19 would have been better

"Initially, this and any future HASLAB products will be available for purchase on this website only, under the terms and conditions described herein.  We reserve the right to make the products (or similar versions of the products) available at other sources, such as online stores and retail locations, but such availability is not guaranteed."

It sounds like, at least to start, items will be made to order based on the website.  Something like the Sail Barge may be a one and done here.  This is going to be a really, really interesting experiment...  :o

I'll be like Homer Simpson when he ate Lobby his pet Lobster after he gave him a hot bath. Crying because of the price, but loving every bit of it.
