The slide looks weak, but I can totally see Hasbro using that for some sort of internal presentation.
Here's to hoping that it's legit, and that it's a nice surprise in the $100 price offering.
completely agree about the "weakness" of the slide. I am not sure what the purpose of the slide is, but I would think that if I, as a company, were showing off a new big box toy item, there would be a lot more focus on the actual toy itself - and not having what appears to me as a primary focus on two characters from the cartoon.
edit: Plus you can find this picture is also dated all the way back from as early as March 2009
plus I would think any picture would atleast make some sort of attempt to to show off atleast one of the bulletted features...
Still hoping this is legit but I definitely do have my doubts.
As for saving money on these big items - if I love it I will rush out and grab it full price, I did on both the Falcon and the Target Jabba Rancor. If I am not head over heals about it but I do kinda like it I may pick it up on clearance, which is what I did end up doing for both the AT-TE ($50 at TRU this past summer) and the Turbo Tank ($45 after Christmas with a $5 off coupon at WM).
