"The docking ring is hinged for a vehicle (not an escape pod) to dock. (Itís an aggressive style fighter vehicle.)"

Could our beloved icon appear in the new CW cartoon?

Aren't they starting to do some kind of message board thing there, though?

Anyone know how long the current Falcon is, so we can compare it to 2 1/2 feet?  Mines in the attic.

I've een wondering about the Falcon appearing in the CW 3D as well.  Who knows, maybe it will play a part in the Live Action series, so Hasbro has just gone ahead, knowing there will be demand in 2010.

Also, if this and the At-Te do well, it really might be time for some bigger items.  Now I'm dreaming of a giant Death Star set that is made of 3 50.00 dollar playsets.

I think we will see this for Christmas
The AT-TE is for the movie release (3rd quarter) and will probably sell well through Christmas
But the falcon will be a fall release for the holiday season(forth quarter)

Well if this does well at 150.00, my hope is for a $300.00 Jabba's Sail barge

The X-Wing docked with the Falcon in the ANH Infinities comic, and I believe in the Shadows of the Empire comic as well...

Five landing gear (four around the circumference, and one at the front). Yes, it has lights and sounds engines.

Five is much better than three..

I have no idea... if they do, I wonder how they'd moderate people complaining?

You guys are all wrong...in 1979 there was a Star Wars "Wookie Storybook" in which Chewie piloted a small ship that was housed in the Falcon.  It looked like a little space shuttle with red stripes.  Again, mines in the attic!

I would not doubt the inclusion of a little ship like that at all, Speedermike. Same sort of thing they did with the Royal Starship. If kids are supposed to play with this, anyway.

Wasn't there some type of vehicle that fit inbetween the front "forks" of the ship?  I don't remember where I heard it from, be it a conceptual toy or EU.
