I saw that too. I'm banking the interceptor will be red as well.

Found Shark-Mouthed ARC-170, Wedges X-Wing, Jangos BD Slave 1 and Star Destroyer repaint in Palmdale Saturday Night. I already have the SD from that 5 pack way back so I passed, but the Slave 1 and Wedges X-Wing were just different enough for me to pick up. The ARC-170 is really nice, it definitely stands out in this assortment, I was a little surprised at how glossy the paint job was, though.

My brother bought me 4 of these for my birthday, and I must say these are a lot more impressive once you've opened them to appreciate the weight of the metal.  8)

I picked up the E3 Falcon one day a couple months ago for a friend...  He passed on it, I opened it, and I've quietly been hooked into this line since then.  I gotta say I'm enjoying it overall.  Cheap, fairly detailed for the scale, and I even like the simplest of repaints...  The line has me and now I want them all save for non-film/EU repaints (Silver junk, etc.).  I'm really hoping this line gets expanded into the non-film vehicles though.

I think I'm satisfying my overall desire for vehicles with this line since I don't look on the 3.75" scaled vehicles favorably.  The fact these are all done with pretty good accuracy and proportions has me hooked...  And some of the repaints are just too cool to pass like the blue N1 and the CW vehicles.  I'll have to keep up with this thread more now that I'm fully into these and figuring out how I'll display them amidst all the chaos.

Hey folks,
Jeff just posted that the Falcon transformer is on sale this week for $28.88 at WAlly (I think) and he mentioned two gold titaniums with it ???  I'd heard of the X-wing, but what's the other ship?

The other question(s) that beg to be asked is/are: is anyone in need of the transformer but not the titanium ships?  I'd be happy to work out a deal to get them?  And/or can anyone help out with this entire set, I can just give away the transformer to the 4 year old boy across the street if need be.

The two ships jeff mentioned are a TIE Fighter and Millenium Falcon that are packed with the Falcon Transformer... 

I don't get the point of packing collector-oriented stuff in kid-oriented stuff but I guess that's why I dropped marketing off my resume too.  ;)  Brent's frustration is something I think many others will face.

I'm a huge SW fan and a pretty big Transformer fan, but I've held off on picking anything from this line just because they look retarded in their robot modes. 

I loves me my Titanium, so I'm going to have to cave and by the WM version even though it's not going to look good being displayed with my carded Titanium ships.   :-\

Thanks Jesse. 

Now I'm totally confused ???

I'd thought it was supposed to be a gold X-wing rather than a Tie.  And is it just Vader's Tie again or a regular (gold) Tie?   The Falcon is cool, I'd go for a gold version of that, but where'd the X-wing go, or is this just a Walmart version with two and the other stores will have the gold X-wing packed alone?  Do I have to buy two Falcon transformers, one or what?  Or should I just be bright enough to realize that Hasbro's going to release these down the road singly and I'm an idiot for getting them now? :-\ :-X

Ok, went and read Jeff's response with the pretty picture.  Regular Tie, so two new versions meaning I'll have to try and get ahold of this.

I'm in the same boat as you guys.  What gold ships will be coming with the TF Falcon??  I know one was a Tie, but was the other an X-Wing?  I guess I didn't pay too much attention to the photo wherever I saw it last.

Ok, here's where my confusion is coming from.  My memory misinterpreted the remarks, so only have to work on getting the one Falcon Transformer to get the two gold ships, the gold X-wing not currently available.

Nah, not at all.  Your message was clear, it's my mind that wasn't.

Them are purty!!  I like the Invisible Hand and the Red Interceptor the most.  Did that Carnor Jax or Kir Kanos guys have red interceptors in the comics?  I wouldn't mind having a 3 3/4 scale one for my collection.

Tonight I found the Transformer Millenium Falcon with the gold Titanium Tie fighter and Millenium Falcon at East Wal-Mart in Palmdale. It rang up for $28.88.
