Wow. I'm scared about what they're going to price the At-At at.

I wonder if TRU will up the price on the existing AT-ATs that are currently gathering dust? It would be funny to see the Hoth ATAT at one price and the Endor one for $100 more.

Kind of funny.   :-\

Well, those black boots on the Endor AT-AT Driver are the PERFECT reason to plunk down a lot more cash for that version of the AT-AT, silly!

Stopped by TRU today and they were getting a couple of these out to put on the shelves.  The price (and the fact that I already own one) will keep me away, but I will say that it sure did look pretty.  If I had the funds and space, I might consider picking up a second.

I missed the black boots until now. Makes sense, who wears white boots on a forest planet.

*looks at scout troopers*

I mean, besides them.

So how come the Hoth At-St driver didn't have white boots?

Is the speedy bike actually brown in this release?

*Yes, I wrote speedy bike*

Confirmed, my TRU has the BMF for $250. It's on a high shelf so us mere mortals can worship it from afar.

My TRU has two of them.

Unfortunately they put those wire-wrap security things around them which have now damaged the boxes - which is the only reason I'd even buy one of these.

I have spoken with one of the managers there a couple times and I showed him what the security device had done and asked him if one could be kept aside for me the next time they get one in and he said he would.

If I can't get this in a good-shape box, there's no point in making the purchase.

My Legacy Falcon has one of those security electronic tags on it, but was not in those dreadful wires. 

Pretty sure they're easy enough to steal if you're willing to walk/run out the door without paying...

My TRU has x2 yellow shirts guarding the door for the season.

If I enter/exit TRU holding my cell phone or my keys, the door alarm goes off. The employees don't even turn to see what's going on. So I doubt they'd care. :P

Well, there was the recent shoplifting spree where two people were emptying contents of cheap items and putting more expensive ones inside, then buying the "cheap item".  They eventually got caught in part because they used a rewards card, IIRC.

Bought one of these bad boys today. Had a 15% off coupon which made the price what I expected to pay, so I couldn't pass it up.

Now, to find a place to put it. It's still in my trunk since the box is so huge.

You know, our store had a couple of these a week and a half ago or so (just stocked on the floor with a sign), and both are now gone.  I'm a little surprised they are selling at that price, although the toy is amazing and that box sure is pretty.  Plus, if I had missed out on the earlier release, I'd sure be figuring out a way to get the money to pick one up now...probably my favorite toy of the line, or at least towards the top.  I still haven't figured out a nice way to display it though, almost thinking about trying to build something custom for it so you could really see it well.

I finally saw this thing this past week at TRU too...it's so huge they just left it sitting in the middle of the aisle. No shelf space available. I've seen it migrate around a few times but last time I checked it was still there. Curious to see if it survives Black Friday...
