JTA reader Ed D. found a listing on his eBay application for Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) under eBay seller Hasbro-pulse. They don’t have any listings when you search by seller, but it looks like this going for sale online is imminent.
News from New York Toy Fair was that these are going to be a very limited quantity available with around 1000 available. There is no news as of yet as to when the store is going live but there is a description of what you get for your money on the eBay link.
In the film “Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi”, The Khetanna was a luxury, 30-meter sail barge owned by Jabba the Hutt that carried a massive transport of up to 500 passengers and 26 crew members. Complete with 3 decks, the Sail Barge was primarily used to transport passengers on extended trips across the dunes on the planet, Tatooine. Most notably, the Sail Barge was the site of Jabba’s demise at the hands of Princess Leia Organa and her cohorts.
Measuring approximately 4ft long, this vast vehicle is a dream item for any Star Wars collection. Designed to captivate and inspire, The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) features exquisitely detailed, fan accessible decks that complement 3.75-inch figures (not included) allowing fans and collectors to recreate intense battles in the Star Wars saga. Its removable side panels also offer a unique opportunity to pose and set up incredible dioramas. Complete with premium deco, vintage packaging, and soft cloth sails, this dream product offers Star Wars devotees the quality and realism they know and love. Included with the vehicle is Jabba the Hutt and Yak Face (3.75-inch scale figure).
There is a price placeholder of approx £376 excluding delivery so be sure to add this to your watch list if you want to snap one up. I love the further nod to the vintage Kenner boxes with the line art on the reverse which was used to keep printing costs down in the 1980’s.
