More than two years after launching its HasLab crowdsourcing platform, Hasbro Pulse is bringing Star Wars back into the fold.

At the first-ever Hasbro PulseCon, members of the Hasbro Star Wars design team unveiled plans to create one of the biggest Star Wars vehicles ever released: the Razor Crest.

Based on the ship piloted by Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) on The Mandalorian, the Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Razor Crest measures 30 inches long (with the main cannons), 20 inches wide, and stands 10.5 inches tall while sitting on its landing gear.

The highly-detailed vehicle seats three figures in the cockpit and includes detachable engines and removable hull panels; a weapons locker; opening rear and side doors; working ramps; a carbon freezing chamber; cargo hold with cargo netting; landing gear; and a bunk area where figures can hide. The early renders even feature the lavatory and vac tube seen in the debut episode of the series. The vehicle will come with an exclusive new 3.75-inch scale Mandalorian action figure with a soft goods cape and its Beskar armor.

Hasbro launched the project stating that it needed 6,000 backers at $349.99 to put the Razor Crest into production for delivery in Fall 2021. Within three days the project exceeded 8,000 backers to unlock the first of two stretch goals: an escape pod add-on. Should the project exceed 10,000 backers, the Razor Crest will come packed with a 3.75-inch scale Star Wars: The Vintage Collection The Child (Nevarro) in Season 1 Pram. The figure will come on a vintage-inspired cardback with Kenner branding.

The HasLab platform successfully launched at Toy Fair New York in 2018 with the biggest Star Wars vehicle ever produced, Jabba the Hutt’s Sail Barge. Other successful projects include the Transformers Unicron campaign, Marvel Legends Sentinel, and the recently launched return of HeroQuest.
