The Ghost HasLab Campaign Closes With 21,526 Backers

After a massive push in the closing hours, the latest The Vintage Collection HasLab featuring The Ghost closed with 21,526 Backers. After reaching the threshold for the final tier at 17,000, the final 8 hours tacked on another 4,500+ backers. Congrats to all who secured this piece for your collection!

Backers of The Ghost can rest easy now that the third The Vintage Collection HasLab is fully funded, unlocking all tiers with just over 8 hours remaining. Now it remains to be seen as to how Hasbro plans to offer the final two Ghost crew members on the mural cards. 

There are still a few more hours to back if you are on the fence…

UPDATE: and the final number of backers is 21,526! Not as much as for the Razor Crest, which had about 6,600 more backers, making the Ghost the 2nd most successful Star Wars HasLab. However, the Ghost is more expensive so all in all the Ghost brought in almost $1 million more in total money than the Razor Crest.

Sabine Wren and Chopper Coming To TVC Mural Cards If...

Our friends at Jedi News were in with a roundtable Q&A today with Chris and Jing from the Hasbro Star Wars team and it was revealed that if the HasLab Ghost project reaches 17,000 backers they would round out the mural carded figures with Sabine Wren and Chopper… for an additional purchase. We currently stand at 11,300 with just under two weeks to go. Currently, Hera and Ezra are locked in. It remains to be seen just how they will be offered. They will post the full interview tomorrow.

Success! The HasLab Ghost Is Fully Backed!

That didn’t take very long, after launching the campaign on Friday the Ghost just reached the first target of 8,000 backers which unlocks the HasLab and means the Ghost will be made!

Congratulations to the Star Wars team who finally came up with a well thought out Star Wars HasLab after two failed campaigns that suffered from various issues. But this proves Star Wars collectors are absolutely willing to back a Star Wars HasLab if the HasLab is any good. Even if it’s pricey.

So now we will have to see how far this can go. At this point I am pretty confident this will reach 17,000 backers, which means all the tiers will be unlocked. As usual things will slow down a bit now, only to pick up speed again in the final week and especially last few days.

So to anyone who already backed the Ghost: you can look forward to receiving the ship in about a year from now! Now you can plan where to actually put it!

You can still back the Ghost on HasLab!

Success!

The HasLab Ghost Size Comparison

Numbers are quite abstract, so how big is the HasLab Ghost really? How does it compare with the Razor Crest? I created a comparison photo that compares the Ghost, Razor Crest and Khetanna with photos of Luke and Leia to give you an idea how bulky the ship is. Click through for the image!

UPDATE: I added the BMF to the comparison
UPDATE 2: more comparison images added that show you how big a true to scale 1/18 scale Ghost and a 1/12 scale Ghost would need to be!

So how big is that compared to a human being?

The Vintage Collection Ghost Comes To HasLab!

It is surely no surprise to anyone anymore that Hasbro revealed the brand new The Vintage Collection HasLab at SDCC just now!

And it is… The Ghost! This is, according to Hasbro, the biggest TVC ship yet! It comes, out of the gate, with the Ghost of course, the Phantom II shuttle and a carded Hera Syndulla (based on the Ahsoka series, so Mary Elizabeth Winstead likeness) figure. Chopper will only be a mini-bust, i.e. his head, he can be inserted into the droid port on the Phantom II.

The ship has a fully detailed interior and a cockpit with four seats for the full crew.

Tiers have already been announced!

Tier 1: carded Ezra Bridger figure – exclusive HasLab version – 11k backers needed
Tier 2: carded Kanan Jarrus figure – exclusive HasLab version – 14k backers needed
Tier 3: carded Zeb Orrelios figure – 17k backers needed

Sabine Wren will be a mainline TVC release! So you have a chance to get the full crew!

Price is $499.99! 8k backers are required to unlock the Ghost. If the Ghost reaches 17k backers the final tier will  be unlocked!

You can back the Ghost right now, on the HasLab page! Deadline is September 6th! There are currently 601 backers after just a few minutes.

UPDATE: I added a hands on video of the Ghost at the Hasbro SDCC booth where you can get a detailed look at an actual (3D printed and hand painted) model! To give you a better idea of the dimensions and look of the spaceship and figures!

Ideas For The Next Black Series HasLab

With the second failed Black Series HasLab in a row the question is what could be next. To put the blame for the two failures on the Black Series as a toyline is shortsighted, since both HasLabs were either half-baked lazy attempts (Rancor) or mindboggling choices (Reva’s lightsaber, really???) to begin with.

It’s a moot discussion about who’s to blame here, it’s most likely Lucasfilm in my opinion – with some assistance by the Hasbro Star Wars team. The big question is if Hasbro should give the Black Series one more try at HasLab.

We will not talk about potential TVC HasLabs here, since TVC has several no-brainers that would almost certainly be a success, like the Death Star Playset, the Cantina from A New Hope, maybe a Sandcrawler or even the Ghost from Rebels (with crew). It would be a good idea to have the next Star Wars HasLab be a TVC item and only after that Hasbro should revisit the Black Series.

So what would be some good choices (for a change!) for a Black Series HasLab? Click through for my ideas and then add your own ideas and suggestions in the comments. Lucasfilm and Hasbro seem to be in dire need of some help here!

The Black Series can do better!

[UPDATE]: Reva Force FX Lightsaber HasLab Not Funded!

And that’s it… The Reva Force FX Lightsaber HasLab ended with a resounding “thud”. Final backer number is 1,413, which is not even close to the 5,000 people who were needed. That is the second failed Star Wars Black Series HasLab in a row. Hasbro and Lucasfilm should do some deep soul searching and evaluate the situation.

Why did the Black Series ever get these extremely lackluster HasLabs to begin with? The Rancor looked merely “ok”, but not great, the tiers were a bad joke (a cardboard backdrop, really? Repacked figures?) and Reva’s lightsaber was dead in the water right from the start. Whoever thought people might want that? Either Lucasfilm or Hasbro (or both) need a reality check. Well, they got one for free now with a failed HasLab that only convinced a little more than 1,400 people to back a Force FX lightsaber for a brand new Star Wars character that is maybe not as popular as Lucasfilm would like it.

Cue sad trombone sound

Reva Lightsaber HasLab Now Live!

To no one’s surprise after the accidental leak on Hasbro’s very own HasLab page a few days ago, the brand new Reva Force FX lightsaber HasLab was also revealed at the Hasbro panel! Price is $499.99, the campaign ends on July 11th. 5,000 backers are required to make the lightsaber a reality. There will be NO tiers!

I would say this could be do-able, since there are quite a few cosplayers and lightsaber collectors out there. But we will see how much momentum the campaign will have after the weekend is over! $499.99 for a saber that won’t even let you fly around like a helicopter is still a lot of money after all!

Will it allow you to fly like a helicopter?

You can back your Reva lightsaber on the HasLab page!

Are you interested in the new Star Wars HasLab or is it nothing for you? Let us know in the comments!

You all remember Patrick’s slip of the tongue when he accidentally revealed in a livestream that the Rancor would be the next Star Wars HasLab. Well, Hasbro is at it again and once more accidentally revealed the next Star Wars HasLab, on their own HasLab site of all things, before everyting was pulled down again.

The new HasLab will be for Reva’s Inquisitor lightsaber (the helicopter saber), cost will be $500. Launch is May 27th (the day the Kenobi series premieres on Disney+) and it will end on July 11th. Let’s see if this Star Wars HasLab will succeed again for a change after the Rancor failure. My personal opinion? $500 for an Inquisitor lightsaber is very ambitious. I feel a disturbance in the Force, as if millions of Star Wars fans groaned out in pain and rolled their eyes… but what do you think? Do you want a $500 Reva Force FX lightsaber? Or will you just order some popcorn and have yet another countdown party here on JTA on July 11th like last time with the Rancor?

Will it allow you to fly like a helicopter?

Watch How Adam Savage Custom Paints The Razor Crest

Adam Savage’s (former Mythbuster) Tested YouTube channel received their Razor Crest a while ago. A thorough unboxing video was released the day they got their hands on it, now you can see how Adam Savage and his co-host Norm custom paint the Razor Crest and give it a much needed weathering and more metallic luster. It’s a 40 minute video, so maybe take your time to watch it, but for customizers it may be interesting to see how a pro approaches custom painting the Razor Crest. And this is most likely not the last Razor Crest video on Tested since co-host Norm already said that he will definitely add LEDs to the ship, so stay tuned for more to come! But for now you can see how Adam and Norm paint the Razor Crest to make it look even better! Click on the screenshot below to watch the video! Will you customize your Razor Crest or will you keep it like it is?

Watch A 30 Minute Unboxing Video Of The Razor Crest

The Tested Youtube channel by Adam Savage (ex-Mythbuster) got its hands on a Razor Crest and a 30 minute video was posted earlier today in which the Razor Crest gets unboxed and put together by co-host Norm. The Tested guys are huge Star Wars fans, Adam Savage, as you may know, worked for ILM and also on the prequel movies back in the day and he has several videos on his channel about Star Wars, either making impressive prop replicas from scratch or reviewing (high end) collectibles like a $1000 Rancor or a Lego Millennium Falcon. So if you want to know what to expect from your own Razor Crest in all detail or if you want to feel wistful about not buying one from HasLab: click through to watch the full video!

Something to make your Friday a little more pleasant

Welcome to another entry in our The Vintage Collection: The Ninety Six column. Hasbro recently committed to collectors that they will be “focusing” on characters in The Vintage Collection that fall under “The Ninety Six” banner. If you’re new to this, it means that there needs a modern counterpart for every classic Kenner figure. Between 2020 and 2021, Hasbro’s made an admirable effort by focusing on these characters. But there is more work to be done, and we’ll figure out where we are step by step. Today we assess Yak Face.
