They are already starting to put them to the clearance isles here in the states as they are not selling many at that high price. Quite a steep price for a new toy. For that much money I would rather buy vintage.

I think it is one of the most detailed things thay have made to date, but to expect the normal public to shell out that much for it is crazy.....only collectors would purchase such a thing and they mass marketed this thing like parents were going to buy it for their children to thrash on.

Have you not read Jabba's posts before :lol:

try this:

'I've heard from other parents that all the kids are asking for (and getting) the falcon this year, so it may not be that dear'

any other translations? :wink:
