I got mine yesterday superfast and super mint.

I am trying to remember - before I left this morning I think I saw on Facebook it was Yakface.com reporting this has now dropped to $30.  How low can it go?

$19.99 I'd imagine.  I remember seeing piles of Y-Wings at TJMaxx at that price.  Mine shipped last night and should be here by tomorrow.  Not sure why it sat for 3 days then they basically overnight it, but no biggie.

They're finding the mintiest box for you, Mike.  ;)

I ordered a second from Amazon. I wanted 1 to display in "shuttle" mode, and 1 to display in "base" mode, and I figured $22 was as good as it was going to get. My first shuttle only cost $35ish due to a TRU BOGO 50% off sale, so $57 for two is a steal.

Well that's a kick in the pants.  Not going to sweat the $15, but would Amazon do anything about that?  Would have been neat if they dropped the price before mine sat around for 3 days.  Oh well....

I've read one or two posts from people who got their money back when the price dropped from $45 to $35. (or something similar) It might be worth the time to shoot Amazon customer service an email.

Thanks Greg, but I just checked..

Post-Order Price Match Policy
With the exception of TVs, we do not offer post-order price matching when an item's price drops after you buy it. Our prices regularly change, and the price you paid when your order shipped was the lowest price we were able to offer at the time. We consistently offer competitive prices on everything we carry because we know low prices are very important to our customers.


I think this just applies to the lightning deals.  Oh well...

It's 100% claimed now and goooooooone, but still can be bought for $29

I wasn't necessarily interested in this either, but at that price it is tough to resist.  I see now that it is listed as "waitlist" only, so I guess I missed the deal.  Heck of a price though.

Crud, I missed it. I absolutely would have bought another one at that price.

Do those deals ever come back around or are they once-and-done?

Got my Shuttle....Had no clue this thing weighed 7 pounds.  Doesn't sound like too much packing material inside, but I no care.

Bought one at the $29.99 price tonight.  My first SW purchase in a long time.

I dig it.  The panels and such make it a bit floppy, but the Imperial Shuttle is my fav vehicle and this ain't too bad.  Playset is a ball of mess, but I actually think i'd dig that aspect of it if i were a kid.  $50 imo would have been a fair price for this at retail.  Not plugging batteries in this thing, but there's lots of buttons and a few lights.  On sale this week at TRU for $65
