When it comes to action figure collectors, it's hard to deny that Star Wars fans are some of the most prolific and dedicated of them all. There have been thousands of Star Wars figures released throughout the years, but that hasn't stopped modern collectors from demanding more.
In fact, a group of devoted fans has created BringOnTheBarge.com to urge Hasbro to produce a long sought-after vehicle, the sail barge from Return of the Jedi. It would be the perfect accessory to collectors of the vintage or modern 3 3/4 scale Star Wars lines, and the petition drive is being supported by a variety of the top blogs, most active forums, and top websites in the community. Hasbro might be one of the biggest action figure companies in the world, but they've promised to take fan support into account when deciding what to develop next.
It might seem like a longshot, but with other humongous playsets like the recent Millennium Falcon and Castle Grayskull finding success, it's a distinct possibility that the sail barge could become a reality with your support.
