I'm in the camp that thought the $150 was reasonable, but the lower it gets the more I gets pissed off :-*

Count me in as one of the "FAO 5000".

I missed out on way too many toys because I waited, so I'm not upset at paying through the nose based on what we were told.  I wish Hasbro would clear up the whole matter. (I'd be ticked if it turns out they did use word play and ambiguity in saying the 5000 units are an FAO exlusive.)

On a positive note, I am so tempted to order another at the latest reduced price.

I shockingly stumbled upon the new Hoth wave at one of my local KB's tonight...   :o

Of course, the stupid pricks jacked up the prices on just this wave to $6.99 (including the re-carded Aayla, Barriss, and Padawan 2-packs).   >:(

I bought them just to be safe, though will most likely return them when I find them somewhere else for a couple bucks cheaper.  I even took up a Coleman Trebor, Wat Tambor, and a few other figures to the counter with me, to point out that they were only $5.99 each, so there must be a pricing error (though I didn't honestly think that to be the case).  The cashier was quite perplexed, and almost went for it, before one of the managers came over and said that the Hoth wave was "brand new" and therefore cost more.   :-\

Damned KB turds.  Don't get anything new ALL YEAR, but when they finally do - they price gouge it...   ::)

JediMac,

How do you really feel?

 I took my oldest son down with me to Big Lou's Toy Shop in Culver City and one vendor had the shuttle  for sale.  That box is huge!  My son kept on pointing that out to me, so I ordered his a few days ago for $54 shipped!  Someone is going to be happy!

This morning there was a large box under the Christmas tree with my name on it, a large square-ish box... possibly the size of a Shuttle.  8)

Edit - Nope... Don't think it is. Darn!

Brad,

Don't do what my older brother did.  Every year he would sneak around the house pullnig me his younger brother around to snoop for gifts prior to christmas.

One year he really wanted an Aiwa Walkman.  Low an behold we found it!  

Come Christmas morning he proceeded to open what he thought was an Aiwa Walkman to only get a generic G.E. Brand.

The joke was on him!

Apparently my folks were hip to his tricks...

Heh! That's funny! Actually I've never taken a peak at any presents, not even when I was a younger fella. I'm just having wishful thinking, realistically I know my mom won't be getting the Shuttle - she fears the whole 'credit card number online, identity theft' thing (can't criticize her for being careful), she'll online order over the phone.  :'( Oh well.

I added one to my list. Hope I get it!

Now I need to get those new Imperial Dignitaries to set up a scene...

If the Shuttle goes any lower, I'm contemplating getting another one!  One to hang in the "flying" position from the ceiling (Tyderrium), and the other for the Emperor's Arrival diorama.  Now that would be cool to have both of those set up separately at the same time!

But you need a third so you can have one MIMB ;)

So if these things continue to drop in price, how low do you think they'll go? I doubt that the shuttles will go for less than $30, but stranger things have happened.

I bet those people who bought the shuttle a year ago are just kicking themselves right now. :P

Okay, I'm planning on ordering a shuttle. Does anybody know if the $10 off code still works?

Back to the top with this, since KBtoys.com just got some more Imperial Shuttles back in stock.  They're right here for the bargain basement price of $59.99 again.  Best hustle on over if you still need one!   ;)
