It's about $25 less than I paid for mine, so I would have too.
It seems the demand for all things GG (clone commanders and CW maquettes aside) has really waned in the last while. Very few things are running even close to retail price. I ended up with a second blackhole maquette in a trade and I don't think I'll be able to get retail on that piece even and it has an edition size of only 1000. We either need a movie/tv show to stir some interest or things are going to continue sliding I'd guess.
I know I'm not paying retail for anything now in the way of a pre-order.
