HasLab’s 1st Crowdfunding Campaign Wraps Up

At midnight, April 4th the crowdfunding period for HasLab’s first effort, the Khetanna wrapped up. Kicking off at Toy Fair, the funding goal was set at 5,000 backers in order for the project to go forward (that’s a total of $2.5M pledged).  While the goal was met several days ago, it was unclear just where the project would land. With the funding period now closed, the campaign wrapped up with a total of 8,810 backers for Jabba’s barge – a full 3,810 above the goal (176% of the goal). 

Look for the ‘Making Of’ book to ship shortly and Sail Barges to show up in about a year. Stay tuned for news of the next HasLab project.

With 4400 backers already committed to the Sail Barge (as of this writing), just another 600 are needed in the next 5 days for the Khetanna to go into production and end up in your collection in 2019. You can see all the details and join the project at Haslab’s site.

STX Entertainment Names Hasbro as Master Toy Licensee for UglyDolls Franchise

STX Entertainment, a global next-generation media company that develops, finances, produces, markets and distributes film, television, VR, digital video, music and live entertainment content, and Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS), a global play and entertainment company, announced today that Hasbro has been named the master global toy licensee for the UglyDolls franchise. The agreement combines STX’s content creation, marketing and distribution expertise across all platforms with Hasbro’s commitment to creating engaging play experiences and entertainment.

“When Robert Simonds conceived of STX over three years ago, the idea was to build a global media company with entertainment properties that could seamlessly move across all platforms,” said Adam Fogelson, Chairman of STXfilms, as division of STX Entertainment.  “In UglyDolls, we have exactly that – a universally appealing brand with the potential to reach a massive audience on every screen and experience, and a meaningful way into animation. It is incredibly exciting to take this next big step with a company of Hasbro’s global reach, experience and influence to bring the ‘Uglyverse’ to longtime fans and new audiences.” 

“UglyDolls is a brand with deep history and tremendous equity, and we are thrilled to work with STX to bring the Uglydolls story to life in all new ways via rich storytelling and immersive play experiences,” said Samantha Lomow, Senior Vice President, Hasbro. 

The UglyDolls franchise is set to kick off with an animated feature film slated for a 2019 release via STXfilms with additional UglyDolls projects in the works across the company’s multiple divisions, including STXtelevision, STXdigital and STXsurreal.

Created in 2001 as a plush toy line by David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim, the Uglydoll brand quickly gained a cult following around the world and in 2006, was named Toy of the Year by the Toy Industry Association. Beloved by children, teenagers and adults alike, Uglydoll characters are distinct for their endearing “ugliness,” in a wonderful “Uglyverse” where differences are embraced and cherished.

“Our roots are deeply intertwined with a profound love for the toy industry,” said David Horvath of Pretty Ugly, LLC. “We’ve been fans of Hasbro’s toy lines for ages, and are great admirers of their creativity and aesthetic sensibility. We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Hasbro and STX Entertainment on the UglyDolls franchise.”   

The global master toy deal between STX Entertainment and Hasbro was brokered by Stephanie Sperber at White Space Entertainment.

 

Hasbro Introduces HASLAB To Produce Star Wars Jabba’s Sail Barge

HASBRO is constantly working to create innovative and exciting new products that cater to the unique needs of consumers and fans. In 2018, we take that pledge one step further with the launch of HASLAB!

Announced at this year’s Toy Fair, HASLAB is Hasbro’s new platform that hopes to put dream products into the hands of fans. To that end, we’re excited to announce that the first HASLAB item is the biggest Star Wars vehicle Hasbro and Kenner have ever produced – fan favorite JABBA’S SAIL BARGE!

You’re our only hope to make Jabba’s Sail Barge a reality! For Jabba’s Sail Barge to go into production, Hasbro must meet a certain minimum threshold of 5,000 pre-orders. It’s up to the fans to support the campaign and help successfully reach that goal by 11:59pm ET on April 3rd, 2018. Those who pre-order the item will also receive “Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna): Behind The Workbench,”  a premium, 64-page booklet that goes behind the scenes of the design and development of the actual Sail Barge film set piece and Hasbro toy and includes set photos, product blueprints, interviews, and more. 

Starting today, fans can place a pre-order for Jabba’s Sail Barge at HASBRO.COM/HASLAB. If the goal is met, the product will go into production.
