Especially if Hasbro pulls one of their typical case pack moves and ships the ARC again with the Y-Wing.

They already did, go to BBTS they have it in stock and have the case with one of each. The reality is they could not make them fast enough so they had to pack an ARC in there until the production catches up. It may be too late as I can see this SKU dying. Xmas season will decide the fate of this price point.

Anyone else notice scads of these at their local WM?

Mine has about 30 out onthe main aisle where they put a lot of bigger toys up for Christmas.  I didn't catch the price but was thinking it wasn't $70.  I was surprised to see it back, at all.  I'm guessing old stock from last year that WM wasn't willing to take a bath on, or that they got cheap from Hasbro and are selling cheap for this year.

BF sneak surprise maybe?  I've stopped at 4 different WM's in the past few weeks and I still get disgusted each and everytime I enter that store - or the parking lots for that matter (looking for new TF swag is my excuse)

Actually, yes. The local WM close to home threw up an end cap with at least 20 ships. I was shocked to see so many. They were $30 each, which isn't a bad deal. I actually bought one, and it's a pretty cool ship with awesome paint apps.

Wow, at $30, I'll buy one. I really liked the deco. But I wasn't paying $70 for an old mold with a new paint job.

My local WM had an end cap full of these today for $30 each.  I'm surprised they didn't have these ARCs out during the Xmas rush.  It'll be interesting to see how fast these go.
