Bought mine this weekend with a 20% off coupon combined with at $10 off coupon.

That's about $30 more than the 2010 online-only re-release, so not too bad.

I personally don't have any interest in the TVC packaged Millenium Falcon, but it's now being offered on TRU.com for $125.  You can get it shipped or do a store pickup (which depends on local availability).

Shows at $249 still for me...

That was fast!  I bought the MTT at that sale price late last night. Maybe this was TRU's version of an Amazon lightning deal?

I got one at that half-price deal.  I saw JTA's post on facebook so I went and bought another BMF because TRU.com doesn't do any price adjustments.  So I'll have to take the least 2 minty boxes back to a B&M store when I get to the parents house

This was a pricing error, I think.

Nope, flash deal.

The Falcon is on sale for $129.99 until the end of the hour (3/2CST)

Weird.  I just checked my email, saw a TRU email, clicked on the flash deals and it said the Falcon was on sale for another 36 minutes.  Just went back and checked the Falcon page, no sale, went back to flash deals and it wasn't there anymore.  ???  I guess that was a flash deal.

Still $249 for me.  I'm pretty sure that the price goes down and then it's programmed to reset as soon as I go to the page.  So every time I go to check, I'm resetting the price.  Sorry guys!   :P

I wonder if this link for flash deals continually works or if it'll need updating:

Just in case people stumble upon the Falcon (or anything else of interest) later.

Saw about a dozen TVC Falcons at a local TRU store today. Now selling for $199.99 each.

Seriously, WTF with the Falcon pricing!?  How many different prices have we seen this thing at now?  $250, $225, $199, $125...all within what, three weeks?  I was going to skip this thing due to sheer size and the fact that I already have the older one.  Then when I started hearing about discounts, I was intrigued and probably would have bought it for $150 or less.  Now I'm just frustrated at TRU for their dartboard pricing tactics and am ready to skip it all together.  I get trying to make as much profit as possible, but just settle on a price already.  Right now, anything over $125 feels like I'm getting ripped off.

The $125 was part of the Flash Deal.  I get the feeling that they weren't flying out of the stores at over $200, so they're marking them down to clear them out.

Don't forget $274.99 - that's what it was at TRU the last time I saw it here in Chicago.
