I'm likely out on this one, barring a big clearance (which seems likely). Just not too excited about it I guess. In a way, I can see why it got chosen (with a TPM focus this year)...but personally, I've shifted more to OT-only with anything other than the basic figures, as space has just gotten too low for stuff like this. If it hits some kind of ridiculous clearance price, I may bite, but I'll be playing the long game on this one.
It just seems like, aside from last year's Attack Shuttle, that most of these big vehicles have really been the "whoa, this is just an awesome toy and collectible", and this doesn't strike me as that. The ones I have picked up (the Falcon, the AT-AT, and the AT-TE) are all pretty amazing in my eyes, and worth what I paid for each of them. But, with display space and budgets getting tighter all the time I have to be more selective with the things I'm not super excited about like this. Even the AT-TE, which is a great vehicle (and I got it during one of those $50 sales), just sits on the floor of our office because I don't have a way to display it any other way.
I have a feeling the Attack Shuttle was a bit of a dud for Hasbro, and this one seems to be heading that way too - and it is more expensive. I hope that doesn't mean the end to big vehicles because of choices like this. I still wouldn't mind seeing more new or redone vehicles from the OT eventually or along with the 3D releases if those still happen. I'm wondering if next year's "big" items might lean more towards re-releases of things like Slave I or the AT-TE (if the AOTC release still happens).
