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.
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.
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.
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.
Falcon's tooled, that's a plus.
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."
