I have my eye on a Republic Cannon currently languishing at my local Target for 30% off. Once that sucker hits 50%, it's mine.
The Mandalorian Shuttle just baffles me. Are they really NOT planning to release this to US retail outlets?
Doesn't that seem like a hefty tooling investment for what has become essentially an online and Canadian exclusive?
From the listing here: http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HS94804G
It appears that this actually is part of full case assortment, along with the HMP and V-19. Does that imply we might actually have a chance that this will still ship to stores? That seems odd that they would ship new product in the SOTDS packaging.
At any rate, I'm reluctant to overpay for one from an online retailer just for fear of never finding one in the wild, but if that's how it plays out, I'll do it. I just wish I could predict what is going to ultimately happen with this thing. It could be another BARC with Jesse (suddenly everywhere after the fact) or another Scout Bomber (never to be found anywhere, not even on HTS anymore).
