Yes, Alex Newborn did a great job of cut and pasteing the pics with the action features.Agen_Kolar said:Hahaha I know what you mean. But then again, no woman ever has.Monari said:
So please don't kill me for asking this question in case it's already been answered, I haven't gone through the ENTIRE previous thread, but has anyone translated all the "Features" listed at the bottom?
I believe the growing consensus is that it was added in for extra "play value" for the children, since the Falcon itself will be a bit hard to handle/fly around for some kids. I plan to leave it out and pretend that area is just extra cargo space.Chewbacca said:I don't mind added value, but I can't think of a single EU source for an on-board fighter, which kind of would be antithetical to the entire concept of a modified light stock freighter used for smuggling.
I'm thinking they will be retractable like the rear 2 of the original falcon. I'm just basing this guess on the fact that the bottom of the hull seems big enough to house them though...coeli said:I wonder if the ladning gear will be removable or fixed into place like on the Queen's Royal Starship??
Yeah, where is he? Everytime I see an overlong post, I'm thinking finally DarkLord1967 has chimed in. If his opus in the '08 Vehicles thread is any indication, this is too small for him. Still, I wouldn't be surprised if he's pleased at the upgrade.RebelTrooper said:I wonder what Darklord1967 thinks about this? Personally, I think it is too small, I wonder if he does?
This is almost half the size of my girlfriend (she's about 5'2) and she isn't happy about me getting this toy one bit. Ah well, thank god she likes Star Wars too.IronSpiderMan said:Anyone who says that 32" is too small realizes that there are children who might obtain this, that have the potential to be -smaller- than this, right?

We're never getting that 36-42" Falcon he dreamed about, least not from Hasbro. This makes it all but a certainty. It's brilliant though. Very nearly a masterpiece. It's also more flyable than the larger toy he envisioned, so for my part I'm not even sure I'd prefer his version to this version.
I'll eat my slice of crow and humble pie, though, because back when he was raving I kept telling him to shut up because there was no way we'd get this, least not in 2008. I'm still shocked. The economics confound most everything I'd come to understand regarding boy's toy collecting. 'Course, and most unfortunately, if this toy were to fail it'd likely confirm my original expectations.
If Target's Ultimate BattlePacks (around $50) or TRU's Endor AT-AT (around $100) was any indication of how well something can sell at a high price point if it's really really cool; then this shoud have no trouble selling well. I just hope it's not in short supply. Judging from the posts, 9/10 of us will want it, and want it bad.amdevil said:how successful will this ship be at retail? will it "fly"off the shelf or will it sit until clearance?
