Millennium Falcon In ROTS Packaging?
« on: July 13, 2005, 04:57 PM »
Holy Re-re-re-rehash!!!  >:(

From Rebelscum…

The Millennium Falcon has been repackaged in the ROTS graphics and will be out in time for the holidays. HOORAY!!! We can only hope they add the green markings to it like in ROTS.

I was happy when they did the OTC one. Which I waited and got on clearance. This is another lame move. More shelf space devoted to a ship that most of us have and could be used for oh maybe a Gunship or a AT-TE??
I remember my dream now.

OK seriously, is there something going on today that I don't know about  - are the SW fansites joining together to start these facetious rumors or is this really coming out of Comic-Con???

THE MILLENIUM FALCON WAS CLEARANCED OUT AT EVERY MASS RETAILER ASIDE FROM TRU WHERE IT IS STILL $54.99!!!!

I swear, when I saw the thread title I thought you were taking advantage of the chaos and pulling our collective leg, Jay. Alas, it was not to be. :-\

Are they out of their ******* gourd?? These things ARE STILL ******* EVERYWHERE, you morons! >:(

I'm feeling a little less bad about not being able to go to ComicCon and missing seeing this travesty in person.

Good grief. ::)

WHAT THE ******* HELL

There are SO many things wrong with this picture. Where do I begin?

1) The Falcon is not a prequel or ROTS item, and will look stupid in ROTS packaging.

2) The OTC Falcon, as mentioned above, was already clearanced out everywhere except for TRU.

3) TRU still has at least 50 of them as we speak, still at full price.

Just.... I can't think of what to say. Wow.

^ To your first point, the Falcon actually was briefly in ROTS, glimpsed in one of the Coruscant spaceport scenes. And we have it from George himself that it's THE Millennium Falcon, not just an ordinary Corellian freighter like the ones in AOTC.

This is from a StarWars.com article on "Easter Eggs" of ROTS.

Do I need a ROTS version of the MF though? NOPE!!!!!

What I need is an AT-TE or Turbo Tank - not the same vehicle that I could go buy RIGHT NOW from my local TRU!

^ Of course. I was merely pointing out Hasbro's rationale behind the ill-conceived decision.

I know - but a big F-U goes out to GL for even putting such an Easter Egg in ROTS in the first place solely to give Hasbro the ability to re-package the figure. I mean if he wanted the MF in the movie, he should of had it play a more important role - like say instead of using GG's fighter to get of Utapau, Obi-Wan hitches a ride with a smuggler, rides in the hidden compartments and the MF meets up with the Tantive IV.

I can't honestly believe all this bull**** is really true.

This has got to be some kind of disinformation line fed to fan sites so that Hasbro can issue the "real" statement at Comic-Con.

I just can't believe this stupid **** is really real anymore. That seems like a lot of stupid decisions, even for Hasbro.

I laugh at the completists when stuff like this rolls around...

I just spoke with a friend of mine who just found out about this, and he said he has to get it.  Good grief.

Where the hell's the AT-TE and Turbo Tank?  Jesus Christ Hasbro...
