I should be racing to preorder these after not having anything to buy for like a year, but the price points on this and the Interceptor are insane.  This one is easily double what it should cost and I just can't justify spending that, even for Fett's ship.   :P

Any idea on the dimensions for this? For $99, I am hoping it is quite large.

I really want this, but doubt I'll preorder it.

It's a little bigger than the original.  Same size ship came in the Rise of Boba Fett Battle Pack.

It's about 20" long and 15" wide

I really want this, but like many have said, it is overpriced.  I am guessing it will be around for a while until they lower it a bit

Add my name to the "I want it, but $100?  Ugh" pile.

I'll hold out and hope for a sale/promotion to bring it closer to the $65-75ish range.

same - I am going to wait it out, it is too much.  Plus, I have been working on displaying my stuff and I have entirely too many ships...  But no official Slave 1 (I just have the CW version).

Seems like this is the ship to NOT leave out of a collection.

I too will hold off until either this goes on sale a little bit or I get some sort of bonus at work (ha!). I feel like the Vintage packaging is an excuse to add $20 to the overall price.

Yeah, the price is excessive, but the fact that I've not been spending anything on SW toys as of late still puts me way ahead of yearly spending.

Same here.  It's a bit pricey.  Especially when you compare it with the price tags of vehicles like the Big AT-AT and AT-TE.

Price on this is now $70 on Amazon (thanks SW Action News).  It was mentioned that this may not be a "preorder price guarantee" item, so you may want to cancel/reorder, but I'm not sure about that.

Well that didn't take long.   :P

I can handle $69.99 for this.  Thinking about pre-ordering but if the price dropped $30 so fast... maybe I should wait it out to $50? Hmmm...   :-\

I'm on with an Amazon rep trying to get my pre-order adjusted... in my opinion, since the item hasn't shipped yet, Amazon should have automatically adjusted all of the orders for this thing not made it something you had to call in about....

As someone who pre-orders a lot of movies from Amazon, it's 100x easier to just cancel the order and re-order at the new price.  If not, a simple email letting them know will usually result in an adjustment within 5 or 6 hours - all without having to call and sit around on hold.

Also... at $70, I'm in.  With the no tax and all that, it's like getting it for about $63 in stores (with Chicago taxes at least).
