, I agree with you 100% and usually always do, have now for years.
Let's say that speculation is right - it's 30 inches long. How tall would it be then? 12-15 inches? It would still be very underscaled, but at the same time it would be the absolute "must have" Star Wars toy of the year. It's not a Royal Starship that is a woman's weaponless ship (which is still a great diorama piece) - this thing is a freaking killing machine! Imagine all the battles you would center your playing around this as a kid! Or setting it up in your dioramas as an adult! Or photonovels! Really, I want this to be true. $200.00 does sound fair for this. I remember a long time ago people saying they might pay $40 or $50 for one... are those people really serious? Doesn't sound like they want one to me at that price!
So, yes - at $200.00, I'll take two of them. One for a Geonosis diorama, another for Utapau. I think there is still a window of opportunity here that Hasbro can capitalize on. Since the vintage days, I don't think Star Wars has been any hotter than it has been in 2005-2006. If they're gonna do it, the time is now.
