HasLab Ghost gets backed on Hasbro Pulse

On Tuesday, the Star Wars The Vintage Collection The Ghost HasLab was successfully backed and will go into production after the deadline of 7th September on Hasbro Pulse.

This is great news for Star Wars fans (myself included) and collectors alike. After missing out on Star Wars HasLab Jabba's Sail Barge (The Khetanna) and Razor Crest, the Ghost, based on its live-action appearance in Ahsoka, would be an awesome addition to my collection that began with the R2-D2 action figure in 1978.

Due to the cost of living crisis, like many, I've drastically cut back on collecting this year. As I've written previously, £499.99 for the Ghost, the fan-favourite spaceship and home to those Star Wars Rebels, is a big outlay for a collectable that won't be released until late 2024. This sounds churlish, but the Ghost may be too big to display (a friend resold their HasLab Razor Crest due to its size). I appreciate this is a good problem to have.

Now that the goal of 8,000 backers has been reached, there will be upward momentum for the stretch goals featuring Ghost crew members Ezra Bridger, Kanan Jarrus and Garazeb "Zeb" Orrelios. This will mitigate the cost, which will only increase in the secondary market. Also, Ahsoka will be streaming on Disney+ during the crowdfund. This may lead to a fear of missing out (FOMO).

Will you be backing the Star Wars The Vintage Collection The Ghost HasLab on Hasbro Pulse? Are you going to wait and see if all the stretch goals are met? Let me know in the comments below.
