I often wonder that.

(new Q and A's this week, right?). 

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


I'd tend to go with the latter explanation. But of course they'd never fess up to that.

Looks like the Falcon has popped up for $159.99  in the TRU computer.  To recap, that's...

Target = $149.99
TRU = $159.99
KB = $179.99

Hopefully this third piece of evidence will put all the "OMG it's $230!" fears to rest.  ;)

What about those of us with the OMG it's $149.99 fears?

I don't know....$150 seems like an ok price to me.  Of course this is coming from a guy that will probably only get the Falcon.

$150 doesn't bother me either.  The reason I probably won't buy one is lack of space. 

And you know we'll see this thing for less than $150 later on anyway.

Does anyone know what the Target card will do as far as a discount?  I mean, if you sign up for one?  That first purchase is discounted, isn't it?

I think that 150.00 is an okay price.  The toy does seem to be about 6-7 times the plastic than any of the recent Starfighter assortment toys.

I hear you about the space....but for this I'll make room.

Yes, it is a 10% discount on the first purchase.

Any price above free is too much, but, in the long run, $150 seems reasonable given the product. Above that, I might gripe a little as I'm walking out the store with it eagerly waiting to get home to bust it open.

I hear ya Ant. I more than dismayed (being civil here) with people on other forums poo-pooing this and the AT-TE. As toys, these things are freakin' outstanding. I'm more than happy they have finally been made and will be coming out. And it shows promises for other large toys we've been wanting.

I'd definitely like to throw in my agreement. This thing is a ******* beauty. The Millenium Falcon is almost as much a character in the saga than any of the main characters, so I'm thrilled to see it finally getting its recognition!

Hypothetically speaking, if you only had room for ONE new +$100 vehicle this year, which one would it be?  The Falcon or the AT-TE?
