I did finally get it open.  There seems to be a sticky spot or a plastic burr in the lower guide slot.  I have been scratching away at the bottom of the slot with a sharp nail and that seems to make it slide more easily.  I will keep trying to smooth it out, but at least it works at this point.

I have been setting up my barge for the last few days.  One feature I discovered on mine is that the jail door only opens halfway when you pul the tab to the right.
I watched two videos on You Tube last night where they were reviewing their barges.  On one the jail door opened halfway just like mine.  On the other it opened completely.
I wish mine did but I am reluctant to force it.  It might jam or even break.
If you have opened your barge, please let me know how your jail door works.
OMB, I have heard of this so many times from the Americans via a Facebook group called "webackedthebarge". There are a couple thousand backers on there.  Any way, when I tried mine, like almost every buddy else's mine stuck half way.  But I have watched many videos already and I can assure you , the door opens further.  It opens about 2/3 the way, until you can't see the main middle jail door moulded on the slider door.  Use two hands, left hand in the jail cell lightly pushing and right hand on the right side lightly pulling.
But until you see videos or get confirmation on any item on the barge that it does indeed open, swing, clip in , etc. etc.  Don't chance it.   For example the door hatch on the outside of the barge where Luke and weequay meet and weequay gets thrown overboard, I heard that this door hinge snaps off easily and on my barge I'm afraid to open it because it looks like it will snap off.
Good luck!

JTA to the rescue. This article they posted may give you some better insight about whether to force it or not:

Finally picked mine up from fedex last night. Had to drive 1/2 hour since fedex wouldn't drop it at a local depot. I dont understand that one. Still I'd rather that than have it left unattended at my doorstep. I nearly blew away on my way from the door of the building to my car. It was sooo windy.

My box had several gashes in it. Sadly one deep enough that it poked a quarter size hole in the front of the vintage box. I can probably tape it from behind and it will probably not be too noticeable.  I can live with that.

My Yakface is definitely not pristine. Top left corner was bumped so it has some layer seperation in the corner. Plus a very noticable thin mark/scratch about an inch long on the back. And the entire bubble was sealed at a 10 or 15 degree angle on the card so it looks skewed. Enough that I'll be contacting customer service.

I have yet to get the barge out of the Styrofoam to assemble. That will be today. Hopefully everything goes together nicely.

On a plus side from hasbro I received a seemingly random call from a new york phone number yesterday evening. To my amazement, it was hasbro checking to see why I hadn't received my barge yet. They were following the tracking and wanted to make sure I was going to be able to get my barge. He offered to get fedex to make another delivery attempt. I said it was okay that I would be picking it up that night. Hopefully they will show as high a level of customer service regarding my yakface issues.

Can't wait to put the barge together today!

I opened the one for the store. Tossed out the box. As crazy as this may sound (because I own a collectibles shop), I don't give a crap about value when it's for my own amusement. I've opened a sealed set of Remco McDonalds figures because I couldn't find a loose/mint set.

The barge is FUN. Took me an hour and a half to set up.... mind you, an hour of that was most likely just playing with the features and checking everything out.

I really hope HasLab does this again. A giant Death Star would be sweet. Bespin w/Carbon Chamber. Or hell, a USS Flagg from G.I. Joe.

I wish they were more descriptive in indicating what it is.  I have 2 of the Walmart Mimbans already and don't really need another and I don't collect 3.75" Clone.

I guess I'll preorder anyways and if it's not Han, I can always sell or change my mind and keep.

Same here,
I preordered two today. I already have one TVC Mimban but I would take one more. The Clone I have from the Black Series and don't care for another really.  I hope it might be Stormtrooper Han Solo.     ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

Buy houses, pimp them

I did.  I pimped the basement out with packaged Star Wars toys and they look great.  And the ones that didn't look great i made them look great.

LOL :)` ;D Star Wars in a basement is definitely the best way to pimp a house... except for the wives. But that's another problem.  :tongue0024:

I appreciate them both as collectibles and art (mass-produced as it is).  It's my hobby.   How dare you try and tell me how to enjoy it?

LOL No offense, really, I was just thinking out loud. I just realized that we complain a lot about toys that would brought us to Heavens back in our childhood. That Barge, like the Millennium Falcon and the AT-AT a few years back, are what we always dream of. Now that it's finally here, I would love all to open it and see how nice this thing is. The pictures of the product are nice, but they don't give the ship full justice.

But maybe my feeling comes from what I see on social media, where collectors seems to be more interested in displaying what they found and what rare items they have. I stopped following a number of accounts, especially one in Norway, because all they had to say was their "mail call" they get of new stuff, sometimes 2-3 times a day. It was annoying. And a terrible display of vanity and consumerism...
