OMG, that looks big!  We really need many shots and multiple angles, but I'm really pleased at the proportions from that one pic.  Can't wait!

A worthy upgrade to the iconic ship of the films...  Looks like a fun toy and something I'd have died to get as a kid really.  Big, full of "play" features that are appealing, lots of detail and fun...  Kudos to Hasbro for giving it a go. 

I wonder if those multitudes of Falcon re-releases helped pay for this? ;)

That is just FAN-TASTIC!  Well done Hasbro, and I rarely say that on seeing a lone photo.

Just looking at it close-up.  WHOA! 
-I count at least 6 electronic sound/light buttons.   
-A turn knob that looks like it will rotate the radar dish
-3 firing missiles from the cargo loading hatch
-Some kind of compartment on the portside hatch (probably for batteries)
-A slide switch of some kind near that portside hatch (power on/off perhaps?)
-opening cockpit with seating for 4
-engineer station in the main hold
-Dejarik table couch
-topside gunner station
-boarding ramp

Not sure if there's a walkthrough passage into the cockpit, but that seems kind of inconsequential looking at everything this Falcon DOES have.

Woah.  I wasn't going to spend the money on this since I bought the revamped OTC version, but that photo may have changed my mind for me.

I've been analyzing that pic too, JOT, and it seems to me the Medical Bay is hanging out behind the gangplank (just behind the cannons in the pic.) GH seemed to indicate that was behind the round doors at the bottom right...I am kind of hoping they put an escape pod in back there, to launch out of the flip-up docking ring on the port side. Not that I would complain if it's not. On the same page, I kind of hope the interior stuff is removable in some way, you know, to display and actually play with.

Judging by the scale, how is someone gonna zoom this around the bedroom except in a bear hug? This is definitely a parked vehicle...in other words, a playset.

Mark me down for my first modern Falcon!

Thank you.  Even if some might not admit it, that's what this is.

I didn't think it looked that much more huge than the original, actually...  It's bigger, but I'd say the AT-TE is an overall more substantial toy, at least by my eyeballing of the Falcon...  It seems still like something you can pick up and pretend-fly it.  I don't know that it'll be quite as easy as it used to be though... ;)
