Target Exclusive Imperial Shuttle
« on: May 14, 2006, 08:58 PM »
RS reports that the Imperial Shuttle with be released again this time to Target. Price point will be $59.99 and will come with 2 figures.

While this is pure speculation, this would rock as I personally do not own one. And the price is pretty good considering the 2 pack-ins it comes with.

What was the original price? $100??

Sweetness! I'm guessing the two figures will be:
-2 POTJ Imperial Officers
Or
-1 POTJ Imperial Officer & 1 Imperial Dignitary
Or
-1 ROTS Emperor Palpatine & 1 SAGA Red Royal Guard
Or
-2 SAGA Red Royal Guards

I'm guessing ROTS Palps and maybe an ROTS Imperial Guard or a Stormtooper or an Imperial Officer or Vader...

That would be excellent news. I've been trying to pick up a Vintage or Modern one for less that $100 on ebay, but I haven't had any luck so far. I'll definitely be picking one up. :)

YES! I never could afford one at FAO's prices, so I'm really excited about this. But the rumor has to be false... it's a Target exclusive at a good price! :P

Originally it was 125 from FAO.  When KB took it over it was cheaper.

$60 is fair for this ship.  When I see it at Target, I'll probably buy it this time around.  I passed on it for $125 at FAO, and soon after FAO got what they deserved.

This ship would sell big at the $60 price.  You can guess it will go on clearance eventually.  That will be even nicer.  I remember Sears had the last version online for $50 at one point.  I was able to grab one for that price.

This is great news to me, if true.  I couldn't afford the last version, and always regretted not picking one up.  I hope that we end up seeing this, and I'll definitely grab one at $59.99.

Hmmm...  If this is true, I'll wait for the clearance.  I've got the FAO/KB version (and got soaked the full $120 for it  :-[).

Considering Target had trouble moving a $40 exclusive vehicle, I wonder how this one will do... maybe they plan to have it for the DVD release, that might make a bit more sense I guess.

Guess I need to put out a few feelers to my Target friends...  ;)

I find this info kind of questionable as well.  The ship really did poorly at full price.  On the otherhand, $60 aint to shabby.  Hopefully the pack-ins wont be anything spectacular so I can steer clear of this one.

I already have the FAO one... but will probably go ahead and get this too.  It's too great of a ship to pass up. 

I wonder what the paint scheme will be like?  Will it be slightly weathered like the FAO/KB one?

Hopefully fans will support this item... which is what needs to be done in order to hopefully get some new vehicles/playsets made.

Much better than getting another Falcon repack!
