I think that's been rumoured for a while now, hasn't it? Though this may finally be confirmation. Too bad too, because I like these ships a lot (I only have one) and the posters, though I can see where that would get limited. I'd suggest for the posters they might have overestimated the love for prequels stuff. I think the OT posters are great, but the new stuff not so much.
As for the ships, I thought they were a nice market down from the Master Replicas ships. But I guess if you're willing to drop $400 for a die-cast ship, $1100 isn't much of a stretch? I still remember being at C3 and watching all the money people were dropping. I thought I was spending a bunch but I wasn't even a drop in the bucket compared to what some folks were spending. Nutty stuff.
