Link: “Bring on the Barge!” (Petition for Hasbro to Make a Jabba’s Sail Barge Toy)

December 4, 2012

Sail_Barge

Jabba’s sail barge is one major vehicle from the Star Wars films that they never made a toy for. Oh, they’ve put out miniature versions like the Titanium model, but the closest thing we have to a real sail barge toy is actually the LEGO version. When you think about some of the great playsets in the vintage and modern lines, this seems like a real shame. The closest we got was the skiff toy, which has been rereleased a number of times. Maybe they originally thought it would be too big or expensive, but now that Hasbro has a track record of releasing very large toys like the new Millennium Falcon, maybe the time is right for a real sail barge toy. (The image above is unfortunately just a fan-made mockup.)

That’s what the people at Bring on the Barge! think, anyway. They’re hoping to get a large number of signatures on an online petition so they can demonstrate to Hasbro that there’s demand for this kind of toy. While I don’t usually think online (or even offline) petitions are very useful, this might be an exception. For me, the sail barge is a sort of holy grail of 3.75″ toys. It’s a shame not to have one when it played such a big part in Return of the Jedi, and I think it would be a blast to play with as well. So I encourage you to take a moment and go sign their petition.

    I am surprised that the sail barge was never made as there is just so much play potential in something like that. I’ll vote.

    I’ve wanted this barge to be made as a toy from the 80s such a cool ship never produced, we need this for our collections.
