The lack of a big ship at NYCC prompted my question about one, which led to Daryl's 'suggestion' that one would appear at Toy Fair.  Obviously that puts it out of the glare of the theatrical release, which I question like the rest of you.  But then there will be a Blu-Ray release to support this in the fall, which is one reason we are seeing the bumper vintage wave then as well (Jar Jar, recards of WM exclusives).

Tying that to a BluRay release of a movie everyone already has (3 different ways) is stoopid...not to mention hardly anyone has a 3D TV

Considering the source though, I'd not be shocked, in the slightest, if that's how they're going with it.

Agreed.  But if the MTT was going to be part of the January 30th street date, I think SOMETHING would have leaked by now.  Or at the very least Hasbro would be promoting it already.

Speaking of the republic attack failure, I am seeing it back on the shelves in the new reset at Targets, and back to $79.99. Woohooo!

Has anyone seen one clearanced in a brick and mortar for less than $39?

I saw a report of someone getting one for a ridiculous $12.50 and ever since then I have been obsessed with finding one for that price.

I got mine for $35 and I'm happy with the price I paid for it.  Finding it odd that some Targets clearanced this out, but others have not.

West side Targets have a slew of them, at the rich price of $79 each.  Someone ought to think about the prices in that aisle one of these days.

I've seen these back at full price even at the Targets that did clearance them out a couple of week ago. Kind of like the hostage crisis/hidden enemy battle packs that re-appeared at full price post clearance.
At this rate, we should be seeing tauntauns and landspeeders again soon too, at $24.99 or higher...

Found this at a half-off clearance sale at Fred Meyer's for $31.99.

Saw the Republic Attack Shuttle on clearance at WalMart today.  I'm passing on getting more than just the one unless I see an absolutely ridiculous deal.

I don't see why Target and Walmart are stuck on clearancing these at 50% off. THAT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!!

I mean, they are just not moving anymore at 50% off, I have seen dozens around town just laying there because they won't go deep discount on these things and clear them out.

If the frigging AT-AT can go for 75% off this thing can too.
