I watched this review, then picked up the ship. According to the YouTube review, there are slots on it so it can be added to another ship, meaning they will be making a Ghost, which is what I really want. It was the last one at a local TRU, previous TRU only had Inquisitor TIE and AT-DP which I passed on.
Don't write off Ghost production just yet. I think the series needs to pick up an audience before going for the larger ships. It's only 4 episodes inI don't know why the Walmart Falcon was produced when the Ghost could have been made just as easy. Even if it only had an opening cockpit, rotating turrets, and a place for the Phantom to dock it would have been a MUCH better choice than a second large scale static Falcon.
I must have bad eyes, or a bad memory. Because I don't recall seeing it in every episode. Still, it seemed like an obvious ship to make. Considering the number of times it did show up, and was Piloted by the show's Hero.It reminds me of the Twilight from clone Wars. It was in every episode but Hasbro peed in their pants if they made it.
But it was one of the worst if not THE worst designs in the entire Star Wars universe.I must have bad eyes, or a bad memory. Because I don't recall seeing it in every episode.

QFT! I absolutely agree.But it was one of the worst if not THE worst designs in the entire Star Wars universe.
I agree with both Saddestmoon and ThorOakenfelder. The Twilight was one ugly ship, and I never had any interest in it as a toy, either. Looks like Hasbro agrees with these sentiments as well. It was a barely serviceable ship they just found on the show, wasn't it?QFT! I absolutely agree.
Granted - the Twilight had her fanbase - but in all honesty, she held no appeal for me whatsoever.
Not even an interesting design (in SW-terms or outside of SW either - IMO).
The CW series had a vast plethora of other, more 'Star-Warsy' starship designs, that would make more sense to produce - but IMO, the Twilight was not one of them.
Picked this one up today.I know I'm in the minority here, but it just looks so generic. A terribly uninspired design, in my opinion. I'll pick one up for my nephews for Christmas, but I can't imagine adding it to my own collection.
I agree. The generic look makes it easier to use it for just about any kind of ship you want, smuggler, Trader, shuttle, Transport ship.Picked this one up today.
I like the fact that it's generic. Its colour scheme suggests it wouldn't look out of place leading a squad of Hasbro's existing Y-wing fighters.
I'm also wondering just how many gunners/passengers.droids are supposed to fit in the back.
If a Ghost comes along later, well and good (but what space could I find for it?).
Seeing loads of the Hero Series Falcon in Walmart tonight really had me wondering why they didn't just do a big cheap Ghost instead and just do a Falcon next fall/winter with it being in EP7.If the new Star Wars movie fails to sell its figure line, plus on how well those figures are made, it could be a long while before we see a Ghost.
Well, my fellow Ontarian, the solution is obvious: time to dig out some gear from the cases so your new additions won't be lonely.Found this at a Target in Ontario, along with the Inquisitor's TIE fighter. I'm loving the look of them, but they're very lonely since I put the rest of my collection in storage.
While I think the chance of a Ghost is slim, I don't think the time window is the problem.I love this little ship. On the show I've noticed a couple things about it. It docks both front ways and back ways, with the hatch on the bottom. If docked backwards, the front guns can be used as rear guns for the Ghost, as demonstrated by Chopper in the Empire Day episode.
I hope we get a Ghost that interacts with this ship, but the window is so small for it (Now until, say, June), that I am seriously doubting it.
The Falcon got a rerelease because it is the most iconic ship of the franchise. Laymen who would call the X-Wing a "plane" still know the Millennium Falcon.I was thinking the same thing...I don't know how the MTT or this last Big Falcon was released, while the Sith Infiltrator, Sail Barge, and Ghost haven't been.
