They need to do a mail-away (or Kickstarter) that will allow you to swap out your round dish for a rectangular dish.

Probably be a relatively easy 3D print, actually.  Just might cost $30 or more. :(

Better they do a $30 accessory then have D-bags steal the dish out of a new Falcon and return it with a round one, or nothing.  Although if they are D-bags they'll probably do it anyhow.

They'll just mod the kiddie hollow Falcon that Wal-Mart had. Kid target audiences are too young to appreciate a BMF, and parents too cheap to buy it for them.

Quite frankly, if they want to sell a $250 to $300 toy, one of the best things they could do would be to make the radar dish swappable and let you pick which version you want to display / play with.  At that price point, it would be a small gesture that would probably increase sales.  I'm not terribly interested in a E7 version, but am still loosely in the market for an OT one but have never been able to justify the cost.

You never picked one up when they were first released?  I'm kind of shocked by that.

Yeah, at the time I thought $150 was too much and I hoped to find one on clearance eventually, and that never happened.  In the years that followed I didn't exactly have a ton of space for one anyway, so I've held off.   It's on my list though, but I'd like to not spend damn near $300 for one all the same.

I'm actually in a similar boat with the AT-TE.

Ha, that one I DID find at clearance.  Got it for half off.  The other big one I missed was the Clone Turbo Tank.

After seeing that mess, I don't think we're missing out on that.

Yeah.  I didn't like how that idea panned out.
