Millenium Falcon 2008!
« on: January 05, 2008, 04:25:10 AM »

So, according to the 411 at Rebelscum and the "Target"ing computers at JediDefender, there is a new re-tooled Millenium Falcon coming out this year.  It has lights, sounds, and firing missiles, it also has character sound bites and can fit 20 figures!  Its SKU is 087-06-0877 and it's priced at $149.99. 

The price seems a bit steep for a simple "re-tooling" with some added electronics.  Will it be Hasbro's answer in plastic to Attakus' amazing diorama?  Only time will tell and let the speculation begin!?!?!

I for one will only be interested if there are MAJOR changes.

It's does sound like a nice ship.

I wonder what the retooling will do for that cardboard separator that the old one had?  Firing missles just don't do anything for me.  Maybe it's because I don't play with any of my ships...They pretty much just sit there.

Anyway, I'll buy one if I happen upon it.  I only make it to a Traget about three time per year.

I REALLY hope by "re-tooled" they mean the difference between the classic X-Wing and the new ones they are doing now.  If this new Falcon looks like the one I see in my mind's eye, then my dreams have come true.  I want a bigger ship, with a 4 seated cockpit with LOTS of room  in the back and crazy detail.  I can't wait till TOY FAIR to get a glimpse!

Unless it's to scale...not interested, but at that price point it could very well be.

I hope so too - but the OTC Falcon was about 89.99 was it not? I can't imagine it'll be double the size or anything.... they'll likely blow up the mold about the same way they did for the new Hoth turret from the Ultimate Hoth Battle Pack and go with that.

if they made it slightly bigger than the OTC (big enough to fit chewie in the cockpit would be nice) and a little bigger in the hold of the ship. I wanted the OTC version so bad and when I got it, I was so disappointed in it ( especially for the $90 you pay for it). I'd have to wait and see what is special about this one before deciding on it

You didn't know it was coming out? I am so glad it is, because I missed the original one(s).
Hopefully not a Target exclusive.  :(

It should be of a decent size cause it's suppose to hold up to 20 figures, that's what they say on the product sell sheets that we got.

I could squeeze 20 figures into my vintage Falcon... if I piled them one on top of another and used every inch of free space  :)

But seriously, the higher price could simply mean that it's a "battlepack" Falcon that comes with say a Luke, Leia, Han, and Chewie... any extra figures, especially say VotC quality ones, could boost the price while we'd still only get a retooled OTC Falcon mold and not a totally new sculpt.  Hope I'm wrong though, a larger more detailed Falcon would be on my buy list instantly.

EDIT: Someone on the rscum forums mentioned that it could be retooled so that it has a foldout play area similar to the eps1 royal starship. Now that would be very cool if they can do it right and turn it into a pseudo playset environment.

At that price I'll have to wait and see - but it does sound interesting...

Yay! I almost bought the last one but kept holding off... and then they were gone. I don't care how much it is this time but, I do hope it's as good of an upgrade as the X-wing.  :love0030:

I emailed Steve @ Legends regarding this new Falcon, and he said, "Yes we will definitely get this item, we will post pre-orders up as soon as we have more detailed info."

YAY!!!!!!

Hope there is a break on shipping.  One of the other sites said, if you want new, big vehicles, BUY them at full price when they first come out.

The re-tooled Falcon did NOT show up...so far...at Toy Fair.  In their Q&A, Hasbro stated that anything coming out this year would HAVE to premiere at Toy Fair, so it looks like 2009 for the new Falcon.  Perhaps we will see at in July at Comic Con?
