For $80, it didn't feel like a good deal, which is what I paid for the first one I bought. I was able to get a couple more off Amazon for $25 each with free shipping... and yeah, my kid loves mine. The first one that I got is on display, the second one for him to play with. The third for a custom Imperial paint scheme down the road.
Of note, I still think this was a weird item for Hasbro to bank on as a "big one" for 2011 - they'll try this item that barely anyone recognized, but are unwilling to try out environments/playsets from areas anyone who is familiar with Star Wars would instantly recognize. Pretty silly in my opinion.
