If it's $230, I'll still get one for full price.  But I'm pretty sure that they'll end up hitting clearance then, at which point if they go low enough I'll consider getting a second one.

Ouch! If that's price is in pesos then it doesn't sound so bad ($15-23).

Are you joking Phruby?  If that's the case, aren't we looking at about $450.00?  I don't see that as being possible at all.  That's triple or even quadruple of what seems likely...

Yes, Chewie, Hasbro is going to sell the new Falcon for four-hundred and fifty dollars.

MSRP is $229.99.



Is that Canadian or AUS Dollars?

Better hope it's AUD, CAD is back worth more than USD again.  :-X

Uh, like I said...  The Target DPCI # still works for the Falcon and it's still $150.

I love Jayson's pic that got posted.  I can't stop laughing.

Be careful how you say that, you might come off as a pedophile.

At the other site Kay-Bee has this new Falcon priced at $179.99 in their computer system.  I imagine it will be at least $150 everywhere else.  Nothing really new but at least there is some confirmation about the price range now.

I saw that too, and like you said, hopefully that lends more to the $150 pricepoint we originally heard about.  Its nice to see it pop up in another system as well, as further confirmation.  I really hope Hasbro just lets us know for sure about this now (new Q and A's this week, right?).  They'll just look foolish (or jerky) if they don't cop to it at this point.  Its obviously not a store exclusive, so there goes that excuse.

No.  :(

Hasbro sent out an e-mail last Friday which said:

"due to the schedules of the different Star Wars team members over the next few weeks, responses to this round of questions will be returned one week later than scheduled on Friday, April 25."

Go ahead and interpret that however you want... is it the "schedules of the different Star Wars team members" or do they need an extra week to figure out what to say about the Falcon?   :D
