Lego Star Wars 6210 Jabba’s Sail Barge Collectable Review

The Lego Star Wars 6210 Jabba’s Sail Barge is a set based from the Return of the Jedi movie. The Khetanna was the large sail barge owned by crime baddie Jabba the Hutt.

We bought this set a while back, I think about 2007, at a department store and what a great set it is. This was a set that my young son instantly fell in love with and so did I – straight away I thought of the great scene in the movie where Jabba the Hutt gave the orders to have Luke Skywalker thrown into the Pit of Carkoon. Apart from the great Sail Barge it has a very good Desert Skiff vehicle and a cool Sarlac Pit to complete the look plus a large number of Lego minifigures.

The set has 781 pieces and a great lot of 8 Lego minifigures. I will start with the minifigures – you get Jabba the Hut, R2-D2 as a butler, the classic Boba Fett (no arm or leg printing like the Cloud City version), Han Solo, Princess Leia in the metal bikini (she has a stud on the back to attach the chain that Jabba has to stop her escaping from him), a typical Gamorrean Guard, Lando Calrissian wearing his undercover guard outfit and Luke Skywalker as a Jedi all in black.

One thing you will notice with Jabba’s Sail Barge is that there is a lot of brown Lego bricks (I remember calling them blocks when I was young) but that doesn’t detract from the look, it makes it more realistic to the Star Wars movie, it is meant to be timber remember. It is a big Lego set without the big price tag of some of the larger sets. You can also make two other models with the parts – turns it into more of movie scene.

The Desert Skiff is simple to build looks good with the plank out ready for prisoners to be dropped into the Sarlac. You have a good number of minifigs needed to make some good fun acting out scenes from the Return of the Jedi movie.

The Sarlac Pit does look pretty good although, maybe, a little bigger. The mouth does look a bit like the mouth of the Sarlac, full of teeth and designed so a minifig can fit in. Maybe a couple of its tentacles would have been nice.

This Star Wars Lego set is fun to play with but you do need to be careful with the sails – they come off just a bit too easy. The windows open up to give you little peeks inside just like in the movie but the big door sides that open are great letting you see and play with all the bits inside the Star Wars Jabbas Sail Barge. There is plenty of space inside to have Jabba and Leia Lego minifigures along with other bits and pieces like the spider and guns and a cool R2D2 minifig running around serving drinks.
