After seeing that mess, I don't think we're missing out on that.

Yeah, at the time I thought $150 was too much and I hoped to find one on clearance eventually, and that never happened.  In the years that followed I didn't exactly have a ton of space for one anyway, so I've held off.   It's on my list though, but I'd like to not spend damn near $300 for one all the same.

I'm actually in a similar boat with the AT-TE.

Quite frankly, if they want to sell a $250 to $300 toy, one of the best things they could do would be to make the radar dish swappable and let you pick which version you want to display / play with.  At that price point, it would be a small gesture that would probably increase sales.  I'm not terribly interested in a E7 version, but am still loosely in the market for an OT one but have never been able to justify the cost.

You never picked one up when they were first released?  I'm kind of shocked by that.

The buz from the concept art must've really got things in gear!

Which would make sense, with it having essentially a little "runabout" shuttle that can dock to it...  The Falcon doesn't have the bulk for something like that.

Go double check your BMF Falcon, right behind the sensor dish!   ;D

I don't think The Ghost will never happen, but I just don't see it this year, personally.  I think the SSG Q&A gives it some hope though, and if the Falcon is the sort of centric hero ship of the new trilogy, like I said before, it's tooled so you could re-release that and maybe a Ghost with it?  I think it's doable.  I think The Phantom was made to clearly dock to a Ghost too, so I think Hasbro wants to do it.  When it comes to big stuff though, and this goes back to the line's beginning, they've always had to fudge ways to do it...  The media support helps though.

With the way the Phantom was designed I would think they at least have a mock-up of the Ghost at this point.

Looks awesome, but I already have the Sideshow version.

Falcon's tooled, that's a plus.

It does need a new sensor dish.

I firmly believe the Ghost has a lot better chance to be made than Jabba's sail barge.

That's why I thought the Ghost would come out sometime this year.  Remember the BMF Falcon and AT-TE showed up at the same time...in the Summer of a non-movie year.  I thought we could see the Ghost sometime this summer.  It would've been a good way to whet the appetites of collectors and fans of the show.

Good to see Kingsmen is doing well.  The comic it's based on is quite good.  And I hear they stayed pretty faithful to it.  Even included the cameo of a particular celebrity (which they've kept under wraps through all the promos).  When I heard they were doing the movie I was like "No way they're going to do that to him..." but when I saw he agreed to appear in the film I was like "Maybe these guys actually got some balls after all."

Love the comic, can't wait to see the movie, although I think they took a little liberty with the cameo you speak of.

It wouldn't surprise me if Disney is making Hasbro keep a tight lid on things.  Honestly, I think it will be more like November before we see anything for Episode VII in stores.  Remember it was late April 1999 before Episode I stuff was in stores.  I might be a bit off with timing this time around since this is the first time we're seeing a new movie not premier in May, but it wouldn't surprise me either.  If we go by my timeline, the first we'd see of anything would be SDCC, but there will most likely be some teases at Celebration VII.

It does bother me that there's no Rebels items at Toy Fair.  I figured that there would be a BMF style Ghost hitting shelves at some point and this year would be the time to do it.  Next year will most likely be dedicated to Episode VII figures, ships and the like, so if we're ever to get the Ghost, now would be the best time for it to sell.

I think they did a decent job on the Phantom.  It's pretty well built and at least the figures fit in it.  ( I have two Millenium Falcons that I can't say that about).

I'll get one for my four-year-old.  I may pick up one for myself to put next to my vintage version.

I think the best stuff for this line will be at SDCC when they unveil Episode VII figures.

Wow.  Last night's episode was a little gruesome.  Luckily, my four-year old didn't realize the inquisitor decapitated those two officers.
