This better not be the $200 EB Games vintage vehicle that is currently on their system (ugh, please don't let this be the $200 rumored vehicle...)

Before folks get too happy, this is a Walmart US exclusive... so what are the odds that we'll even see this up here?  Unless it is being carried by EB that is.. but surely not at that huge markup from the $82.90US price...

edit: I suppose the other possibility is that EB Games is carrying the Tie Fighter up here in Canada, and the $200 price in their system is only meant as a temporary placeholder.  Likely once it is officially announced at SDCC, EB could then be updating its system with the real (lower) price of the Tie.

Mixed feelings on this. I already have a large winged tie and a vintage boxed tie. Mind you that's in an esb box. But do I need more of almost the same? This feels "different enough to make me mad". I'd be buying it for the box at this point.

Pretty close to my feelings. I immediately dismissed it - "been there, bought that."

Not to mention the price point and release date. This came out of nowhere. Or did I miss something? So to be expected to drop $100+ on something that could come and go fairly quickly with no notice...

Same! I'm not a MOC collector, but do have a carded copy of all TVC figures. I drew the line at vehicles and multipacks though.
This looks like the Legacy Collection TIE Fighter from 2009 (with black window tint instead of the red), which I already have. It's a very nice ship, definitely worth a pickup for someone who doesn't have it yet (or needs another!)
