AT-AT seems very fair. TIE Interceptor is not but, then again, Toy R Us ridiculous exclusive rices are nothing new.
Anybody else think TRU will charge more for the RT-AT in exclusive box?

Definitely, only problem is that the Toys-R-Us by me hardly ever puts anything on clearance.

That's every TRU.

I think TRU will charge higher for all their exclusives.

I think we are all so used to getting gouged on prices for our hobby that we aren't used to things being priced at either A-their worth or B-realistically. I think $100 is an accurate price for what we are getting.  The Falcon being priced at $150 was quite honestly insane and the same with the clone Wars stuff that came out.  $100 sounds actually reasonable.  Now if we can get them to drop their crazy pricing on their figures and vehicles then we'll be in good shape. 

Was tempted to buy the Tie Interceptor today until I saw it's $50 price tag at Toys R Us.  Because of greed on Hasbro's part they lost a sale and considering the amount of stock they have of these things I'm guessing I'm not the only sale they've lost.  If they dropped it to 1/2 they would be representing the product better and the consumer wouldn't feel like they were being bent over and smacked in the face.  All the toy prices seem to be 2x more then they should be nowadays...in my opinion.

I too am shocked at the $100 price tag (while I'm not complaining either).

I guess they're putting it into the same category as the AT-TE and the Turbo Tank, instead of the BMF in order to have it do better sales-wise.

Well maybe cause the Falcon's didn't sell well and they're probably only $20 to make! I think $100 is pushing it, but seeing that the original ones from 77/80 of this size were always $50, $100 seems fair.

I am shock with the price but not complaining.  For something Bigger and Better, it should be at $149.99 like the Falcon.  I wonder how they can price it this low.

Target is currently listing a "Super Deluxe Vehicle" in their system at $99.99.  And an RS forum poster claims to have called Hasbro and gotten verification that item #93994 (as seen on the ad slick) was in fact a Super Deluxe AT-AT.  However, since it came from a forum poster it's being held somewhat in question.

I'm in for this one as well.  I am curious if it will sell for $99 though.  I think the one Toys-R-Us released a while back was $99 if I'm correct and that was just a repaint of the exisiting mold.  I think the price is good at $99 but it wouldn't surprise me if it was higher depending on the size.  Either way I will be happy to get this one.

Super excited about this so I hope it's going to happen.

When we were kids we just wanted to play with them; as adult collectors the added scale and detail becomes an important improvement as well as a another selling point. Sign me up!!!  :D

I am really excited by this news/rumor.

I hope we get a really good look at it next month.

I think the figure will be a rider for the speeder bike - maybe just another release of the Biker Scout/Snowtrooper mash-up figure we got in that battle pack last year.

Probably the driver, although it should be two Commander and Driver. $99 sounds reasonable considering that's what vehicles of this size seem to usually run. I remember paying $150 for my FAO Shuttle, which I opened!

It seems *LIKELY* that the Big AT-AT might be the Super Deluxe Vehicle that we've got a DPCI number for.  I ran that number at a Target store myself and the price came up as $99.99.

So what do you think the pack-in figure might be?  An AT-AT Driver?  General Veers?  A trooper for the Speederbike?  Snowspeeder Luke?

I'm excited to see this. Wonder what the price would be. When it comes to the big vehicles - I love AT-AT's and Imperial Shuttles.
