I'd expect double 1997's price.

JTA has posted that this is expected to be at the $29.99 pricepoint.

Blech.  I have to think that this stuff is going to sit at those prices.  I'll be very tempted to hold off for sales or clearance on things like this or $20 deluxe packages.   :P

I'll buy it the minute I see it and send Hasbro the message that I like NEW ANH stuff the best!

I do not think $30 is bad when you consider most stores sell BP's for $25.00. $30 is fair in today's pricing. I will be buying at least two maybe 3 of these. It's OTC so I will support it regardless, I am sick of prequel/CW ****.

It's not a bad price but at the same time it's still about $5 too much to me.  It's like the action figures.  Those shoulde be $6.50 tops but of course they are $7.50-$8.00.  I will still buy it but maybe I will be inclined to wait for a clearence instead?

It's true, and Hasbro even flew me out to set up the "joke".

Haha to all of you noobs!!!!111!12

I will get 1 for sure...  At $30 if that price holds true, I'll wait for a sale if they're wildly abundant to get a 3rd.

Should they be sort of like the A-Wing (which was sporadic around me)...  It's cool enough I could cave and get 3 at full price though, as I really would like one to make sort of a "pack animal", and two for the army building goodness.  It's a good update, poseable, and the figure is nice as well as the beast.  This is in the $30-ish range for me.  $25's better, but eh...   :-\

Love the new gun too. :P  I'm glad I was right on that, as that kicks much bootay.

From the images I've seen, yes.

Sexy beast.  I knew this would be in the $30-$35 range.  Will still buy one provided I can find one at retail.

I'm down for this. I thought it was just a reissue. But having seen some of the preview pics, it's not.

Thanks Hasbro, you've earned some more money from me.

I'm definitely down for at least one, and hopefully two or three.  At $30 each, we'll have to see how many - plus WM exclusives have been notoriously spotty around our neck of the woods.  Either way, it looks very well done, and I hope this (and the Rancor) are just the start of seeing more of the beasties get remade (bring on a new Taun Taun!).

I'm going to pick one up if it's $30 or less.  It does look very nice, I love the dewback itself, the stormtrooper gun but not the helmet so much.

If it's over $30, Walmart can keep mine.

$30 for an exclu is normal I'd say, but then add in that's basically all new, minus the reused partts for the stormie, and it's really a good deal we're getting.  I'll defnately get 1 fullprice maybe 2.  If score sale 3.
