Various companies have been making Star Wars toys for decades, so a relatively movie-accurate version of nearly every iconic character and vehicle either is available now or has been available in the past, but some ships have simply been too big to properly scale down to the size of an action figure. For particularly dedicated Star Wars fans, though, Hasbro has just announced a truly massive recreation of Jabba The Hutt’s sail barge from Return Of The Jedi that can be used to recreate everybody’s favorite sail barge moments from over the Great Pit Of Carkoon—specifically Leia choking Jabba to death and R2-D2 waddling around as a waiter.

The toy is about four feet long and weighs 14 pounds, but all of that enormity comes with two big catches: The sail barge costs $500, and it’ll only get made if a crowdfunding campaign through Hasbro’s new HasLab website is successful. Hasbro needs 5,000 people to commit their money to this thing before April 3, and the project will be canceled if it doesn’t meet that goal. Then Star Wars fans will have to stick with the many properly scaled desert cargo skiff toys that have already been made.

If you need a little bit more convincing, the HasLab website has loads of information on the toy version of the sail barge (which is apparently called The Khetanna, a name that’s definitely never said in the movies). It has a detailed cockpit with room for two 3.75-inch figures, a galley where Star Wars toys can cook meals for that slimy piece of worm-ridden filth, real fabric sails across the top, “operational shutters” that can “minimize distractions” (for the toys), and of course a 3.75-inch scale Jabba The Hutt toy. Sadly, it doesn’t come with anything else, so you’ll need to supply your own Leia, Gamorrean guards, and waiter R2-D2—though, to be fair, you probably already have those if you’re even remotely considering this.
