Sam's Club Exclusive Falcon w/ figures
« on: July 30, 2004, 03:40 PM »
I know this is jumping the gun a bit, but has anyone spotted these, or maybe more important, are there many of us out there with memberships to Sam's that have even started checking?

I'm wondering if I should just get a membership now and start hunting...

I have a membership, but haven't been there in a month or so. I'll be going again sometime soon, so I'll check then....

I just want to know what the price is gonna be.  If it's not too much more than whatever they're going for in the other stores ($50-60), then I'm down.

If it's something ridiculous (say $70+), then they can shove it.

I get these free passes from my employer, so I can check whenever I please.

However, if the hunt is not fruitful, I may be the only person in history to leave Sam's Club without a cart full of ****.

J,

Let me know when this and the Costco exclusive start to hit.  I have both your back and Colmans on both.

Sam's Club Falcon Set
Dustin: Rebelscum reader "Jedi Turok" reports on finding the Original Trilogy Collection Falcon with bonus figures:
If you got a Sam's Club near by you might want to check them.... I got one for $60.72 and they had a neat display of the Falcon out of the box alone with the figures. They had about 20 total on the pallet.

Do the figures come with any accessories/weapons?

Sam's Club OTC Millennium Falcon & Figures
« Reply #8 on: October 13, 2004, 02:37 PM »
My Mother-in-Law got me an early birthday present. I was stunned! It is the first Star Wars toy I have had to fight the urge to open since childhood. This exclusive is the standard release OTC Millenium Falcon with 6 figures that belong on it in ANH (Han, Chewie, Luke, Ben, C-3PO & R2). They are posed rather than packaged in a long lightsaber size box and attached to the top of the Falcon box. Coolest thing I have owned in a while. Iwant to play with it so bad, but my collector side forbids me. The thing is $60 retail at Sam's and is already fetching $100 on ebay.

I can't complain about having a bad mother-in-law. She treats me better than my own mother. She said she thought it might be a good addition and she said she almost got one for herself.

Anyway, I am a happy camper for a little while anyway...

 :o

Nice.  I'd like to get one of these.  I already have a loose Falcon, so this is likely the preferred option for a boxed one.  big and heavy to ship to Canada though :-\

Is there an echo in here?

How the heck would we know, Dp?  You think we're going to actually open the figures up?!?  Sheesh!   ::)

Actually, I plan on opening up the Falcon part of the box so I can "play" with the updated version of the ship (just haven't gotten around to it yet).  But the figures are staying put, since I've already got plenty of the same ones already opened.  I passed on the regular OTC Falcon since I wanted this "more complete" one with the figures displayed, and attached to the top of it.

Big thanks to Fish again for the hookup!

But FWIW Dp, if I had to guess, there probably aren't any accessories included.  Just my educated guess though.  Hopefully someone can chime in with a more accurate assessment.   ;)

I couldn't answer the question either, DeanPaul, sorry. I stashed mine away in storage and didn't take that close a look. They certainly weren't visible in the bubble.

Totally cool, fellas. Thanks for the reply. Thanks for the reply. Thanks for the reply. Thanks for the reply. Echo? I don't hear anything. Just those dang bells! Shut up, bells!
