I Am Sith, I think the problem is that you posted the SAME picture twice in your post...  

You say, "I got this from GH" and then just posted the JD photo of the Transformer.

I think if you go back and post the correct GH Titanium picture you were trying to show, that will clear things up between you and Slothus...

Thank you Jeff, for having the wisdom to see my point. Who is HOTF I am Sith? Don't you mean HOTP? His attempt to 'have your back was noble(I agree) but futile because he missed the point as well. Hero Jeff got my point so all is good now.

Yes, all is right with the world, and thank you for pointing out another mistake in posting.  I was indeed refering to HOTP.

If size is the problem then why is the shuttle out this year?  The X-wing has a huge box from what I hear. ???  Hasbro's logic fails me.

And.. the ARC170 is similar in size to my new ATAT. Though I'm not surprised in the least about Hasbro's way of thinking, since I've been doing this for a long time, I find their logic spot-on! :P

Size is not the problem for those because they are (or will be in the case of the shuttle) exclusives.

Hasbro has said (as Dan pointed out) that they are trying to stick to the "Starfighter" ($20-25) range for the main-stream releases.

So, if an ARC-170 repaint did happen, it would definitely be a $45-50 exclusive and not a regular release...

It is sad really because ARCs sold better than anything else (vehicle wise) and they would still do.  So would the gunships.  I have several ARCs, mostly b/c I got them at Sam's for the same $ with 3 descent figs and an artoo.  Still I would buy more, just to help good old Hasbro out ::)

I never ever ever recall having a problem finding an ARC at retail.  The gunship was much more elusive.  TRU often had 10-12 of these ARCs available.  I bought two total - one from Sams (great deal!) and a regular one during the first launch of ROTS toys.  I may unload my extra one.  I didn't love this ship as much as many other people did.

Same as you this was the easy to find ship in CA, NJ and IL for a long time. The Gunship was elusive. Give it time Hasbro will rehash it in this paint scheme as an exclusive, prelude to a kiss. I can see the Falcon getting the repaint treatment too someday.

I agree Hasbro will eventually do this though I feel it will be likely in 2007 or later since I would have thought Hasbro would have mentioned it at the CC but ..you never know..

It makes sense though with all the other 'clone wars' paint Arc's turning up that they'll do this too ::).

One of the other sites reported the ARC was coming back with pack-in figures and a possible Clone wars Deco but they were not sure if they were talking about the transformer version or not.  The site was the sith clan if anyone speaks French, check it out and let us know.

If it is true, I'll pick one up. Maybe 2 if they go on clearance.

Well, easy money for Hasbro then. I just don't know where I'll put it. :P
