Aaaaaaaaaaaargh.  Had to be KB ::)

Nice fine print too.  Save $20 but get a $15 surcharge for large package.  

I ordered mine from a Canadian shop, whose order got delayed.  Not expecting mine until 3rd quarter.  What do I do? ???

Not a bad price but to have it shipped up here & the conversion rate to CDN, I'm still happy with mine.  
Close to what I got it for. Same If I got nailed by customs.

Mine's supposed to be $185 Cdn shipped.  But I must confess to some degree of nervousness about it coming in.  I ordered it from John's collectibles out in BC.  Communication has been great and every time I ask, he says no problem if I want the deposit refunded.  I'd like to support him, but do not want to miss out. :(

I'll have to wait until it is $80 or less to buy it...  I do want it badly though!

First of all, thanks for swinging by JediDefender Greg!

As for the Shuttle, considering it's showing up at EE and KB now, it sounds like there's obviously been more put into production (unless FAO didn't sell out, which would be unlikely - but possible), so there's a semi-decent chance that with more of these hitting the market, that the price just might start dropping down a little more in upcoming months.

That would be great for the masses who passed on this nice piece the first time around due to the steep cost.  It's a great ship for sure, but $100+ great...?  Probably not.  Should've been about $75-$80 from the get go...  Hopefully a couple more re/e-tailers get the Shuttle as well, driving the cost down even further...  Good luck Greg, and everyone else being patient enough for a better price.  Hopefully that patience pays off for all of you and you score a nice deal on this!   8)

I've been keeping an eye on this eBay auction that finished today - $202.50US ($238.48CDN) in a minty box.

Yowza.  It could be a long time before I get my hands on this baby.

Yeah, I was bidding on one as well, way out of budget.

I always found it amazing that when this first came out, it was going for about what you'd pay for a vintage one. Then the price went way down. Now a modern one costs more on the secondary market than a vintage one?

Probably this shuttle will evolve in a bigger size, with many seats in the interior for action figures
They also could improve the cockpit with more colors.
