As to what I'd buy it for:
$99 Oh hell yeah!
$150 yes, and that's the most I'd care to pay for it.
$200 or more, unrealistic, even if it is a Bad Mother Falcon! (But I'd still prolly get it at that price since it's a single purchase.)
Really though, I can't see parents buying this at the $150-200 price point. Hovering around $100 seems like the right price.
I'm so damned excited about this. Wow, Hasbro trumped the AT-TE! And before it even hit retail. The AT-TE was enough to make my year, but now this....WOW. I really hope it's a fall releasr for Christmas AND there is no way in hell I'm waiting for this bad boy to clearance. Besides doing so would be a disservice to all of us who have asked for the Ultimate Falcon, as well as sending the wrong message to Hasbro about big ticket items.
I truly hope all of you who want this will get it right away and not wait for clearance. (But something tells me this isn't going to hang around on shelves either.)
