I considered putting in a preorder at $70 but ended up not doing it again. I figure I'll wait to see just how much the price fluctuates.

You can always cancel.  But if it goes up instead of down, you've missed out.

I had preordered at the $99 price because this is one of the definitive ships left for my collection.  But seeing it at $69 makes me MUCH happier -- I simply made a new order and cancelled the old one.  8)

It wasn't automatically adjusted?

No, I checked my initial order and it still showed the higher price, so I just cancelled/reordered.  However, as far as I know, this is the first time they've shipped toys to Canada, so maybe that somehow affected things?  You may have a different experience.

I definitely ordered this at $69, which is a reasonable price for this. Now I'm officially psyched.

I just went to cancel my pre-order and re-order and the price was already adjusted.

Are there any close-up pics of the carbonite block and the interior? It looks like it's darker than the Clone Wars version.

I gleefully grabbed this at $69. Thanks to those that shared the news of the price drop!

Mine's slated to arrive Wed. as well.  I'm more excited about than when I ordered, so hopefully it lives up to expectations.
