Wow! $400US. That's about 4 times what I paid for the first release of this vehicle. Really shows how pricing on this line has gone through the roof. Waaay beyond the rate of inflation. It will be interesting to see how well this sells, particularly with the economy the way it is right now.

Most of us were able to find deals when the original BMF came out - but what was the original shelf price? $199.99 in Canada? 249.99?

$399 US is over $500. It is one of, if not the single greatest achievements they've ever done in this scale (sorry Barge owners, I've never had the luxury of seeing that one first hand) but this price is for families who can afford full blown Disney vacations in the deluxe Disney hotel suites & that's about it.

I missed out the first time but even if this shows up in Canada, no way I'd be able to get it at that price.

It was originally $199 & then $249.99 when TRU re-released it in vintage packaging.

I absolutely want this, but can’t afford that price. Not sure where I would put it either. Will the Falcon or the Clone Trooper three pack even be available in Canada anyway?

I am interested in purchasing the Falcon but I don't have a lot a room for it. A $500 price tag is crazy. If I do get it I think it will have to be on sale. Is this thing even going to show up in Canada?

If it does come to TRU they'll probably charge $600 for it.

This is the problem with all these exclusives.

I just heard the black seriessnowspeeder is   a fan channel only thing. I thought it was going to be everywhere. I can't keep track.

And now the GIJoe stuff is all spread around as exclusives. It's worse than ever.

Go in to your local EB & ask them to try & order a black series snowspeeder to the store for you. They were able to see on their system about 20 still in the warehouse, even though customers can't order any on the website. They put in an order for one but we are still waiting to see if it gets to Regina. Fingers crossed.

My bet is $600.

How about we make the over-under $550 on this one. What does everyone think?

Frankly I'm more interested in some of the other stuff since I already have a falcon. Like the vintage boxed wampa,  and some of the other OT 6". And even that CW wave of 6" figures. It would be nice if TRU could let us know what else they will carry among all these goofy exclusives.

How much was EB charging for the snowspeeder? Their website no longer shows a price. Just sold out.

They told me $150 plus tax. That could be slightly higher or lower but I'm guessing it's close.
