Really?  That runs counter to the info that was pulled from the Target computer system.  Although I haven't tried running that DCPI at a store yet.

I was surprised as well. I'm hoping their report is wrong.

Ditto - while I will still buy it with a $150 price tag, I think that they should really do their best to keep it UNDER the $100 mark.

$150 would pretty much put it beyond my means.  Here's hoping it's not true.

I think $100 is the sweet spot.  Rip out the electronics/sounds + pack in figures and I think we'll all be pleasantly suprised.  When is the last time Hasbro put out any 3 3/4 Hasbro toy over $99?  Bueller?

I believe when FAO had the Imperial Shuttle that was the closest at $100.

Pretty sure the Shuttle was $150 at FAO.

And the Royal Starship hovered around the $100 price point - some places more.

Let's hope it stays at $100.00.  If it's $150.00, that could be good news as it is likely to be much more accurate, but I think that price point will really be pushing it for a lot of collectors.

How many toys cost that much these days outside of video game systems?

Man, $150?  Gulp, that's a lot.  This thing must be super grand for it to cost so much.  There's an all new figure that comes with it, but dang, that's a lot.   :-\

I will be shocked if this thing retails for more than $99.99.  You'd be hard pressed to find anything in the toy dept. (outside of the RC aisle and that Butterscotch horse) that retails for more than $100.

$150's a LOT of money for anyone, and for any toy, so unless this thing is really accurate I certainly won't be buying one.  It's not even that big actually...  So the toy had better be something special for that price, otherwise I just won't be picking one up.

Last I'd checked the number, the Target price had not changed on this, but prices on Target items in the system have changed in the past and this is a LONG way off from being released if it's a Clone Wars toy (as its listing says), so anything's possible... 

Part of me thinks a 50% jump in price bodes well for the scale of it, but the other part of me thinks it could still be small/underscale and just cost an arm and a leg.  I guess my hopes aren't up either way on it still.

Checked it tonight, and still $99.99 this evening...  Whether it stays that way?  Who is to say?  Long ways till the Fall though, so anything's possible at this point.

Good to know the price is still at that point.  But a lot can happen between now and the launch of the Clone Wars line.

Mn ToyFare just can't get here fast enough. Hasbro better come clean with this bad boy!

I'd say for $100, it will be cool.  But for $150, it could be outstanding... I'd rather fork an extra $50 for something truly awesome than spend a bit less on something that leaves a few areas to be desired.
