Totally not gaming related: new Millenium Falcon toy is out... 6 Years ago  
OK, this is a completely random post for this forum, or at least nearly random. I know some folks here like Star Wars, though, and there are even a few who pick up the occasional toy (even if it can't possibly be used for gaming)

Well, the new Millenium Falcon came out over the weekend -- it's $150 and about the size of my couch. The thing is totally and completely INSANE. It is, however, extremely cool. It's like if DF made a set for 4" figures instead of 1" figures. It's got pretty much the entire interior of the ship for displaying figures. It's outrageous.

Just wanted to mention it...

All,

Hello I am an addict to good toys. WOW I feel so much better. Then I saw that.... Oh my.... If my mother would not have lost (read thrown away) my star wars collection I probably would own that right now. As it stands my son is not into Star Wars. Darn Pokemon, bakugan, etc. Any way I may still pick it up for christmas. Looks awesome.

EHEHE HI saw this last night, at a Wal-mart doing other shoping... I drooled over it for like 20 minutes but could not spend the $148 for it....
I admit i bought a Snow Bunny Amidala, and some other Action figures just becuase it has been soooo long since i bought any and i liked a few of them.

I was very tempted to get the AT-TE (the slightly cheaper $99 that came out as well) I need to find the measurements on it, i think it's actualy Minis Scale... :) If it is i am Sooo buying that. It should be pretty close to the AT-AT... So there Gaming related and bellow...

I did get the Spider Droid i am pretty sure that is closer to scale for the minis than the Huge one WotC made... :)

Ok after doing some quick math...

The Grand-daddy of all SW Walkers is the AT-AT
AT-AT Should be 10 inchs Tall, next up is the
AT-AP Should be 7 inchs tall for Mini scale (this is probably close for the Action Figures)
AT-ST Should be 5.7 inchs tall
AT-OT Should be 3.8 tall and 9.5 Long
AT-TE Should be 3.3 inchs Tall for mini scale, I have a fealing the $100 is more than 3 inchs, the Action Fleet might be closer
AT-RT Should be 2.13 inchs tall (so the Mini might be close)

Man, the price on this thing is all over the board... saw it on Amazon.com for $219 and some change... another site had it for as much as $319.99... Saw two more prices between that range to on a price comparison site!

This is for the serious collector--not something you'd get a little kid. I WANT ONE I WANT ONE I WANT ONE!!! ;-}~

Some of those prices may be for older Falcon toys which are no longer made, hence the mark-up in price. The new one retails for $150, at Target, Walmart, and TRU. No reason to pay more than $150 for it -- that's plenty!

Here's a pic of it from the back of the box, with the top panels removed so you can see inside...

Some maybe, yeah, but i know the AT-TE was being pre-sold some months back on places for $200-300, they were trying to say it would be supper hot, and sell out overnight and you would never get one any place.

My question is does the back half come off? Where the olderones used to open up, if so this is worth it, if not, it isn't worth it, it's still only half the ship you can access... And the MINI FIGHTER? what the...
