I went to my local TRU (Orem, UT) the other day and was surprised to find a couple of Queen's starships still out on the floor. I talked with an employee about where they had come from since their stock had all been sold during the last clearance sale. It looks like their central warehouse is still trickling them down to local stores. He also mentioned the possibility of a 50% clearance discount off the $50 price tag just to get rid of them.

If they were smart, they would throw in all the pegwarmer Mon Mothmas and Lobots to get their pegs cleared.

I also remember hearing a rumor many moons ago about Target having them for something obscene like $10. Did anyone else hear about that? I think I got it from a SSG post.

A long time ago, in a Toys R Us far, far away from my house...
there was a discount sale that allowed me to get the Queen's ship for $33.00, but it turned out it was missing 2 panels. It was too far away to return it to the store I bought it from since I'd taken a day trip and scored it. I had heard of $24.99 tales, but I could never get a manager to give me it for that price.

$10 bucks? WOW!!! now that's what I call a deal.

10 bucks for Royal Starship??? I've heard 10 bucks for AT-AT and I think that's already an incrrrrrrredible price. If I see an AT-AT at 10 bucks, I'll get myself a whole battalion!! Royal Ship at 10 bucks, a whole squadron :eek::eek:

If I see a Starship for 10 bucks I'd buy some, keep 1 and sell the rest for at least twice the price. I'm not a scalper but I get 'em for that price why not.

If you want to be on the s-list of the majority of SSG posters, I'd keep your resale intentions under your hat. It's a touchy subject in these parts.

Oh don't worry about me scalping. I couldn't even dream of scalping.
I'd only sell Star Wars stuff and give the money to some sort of charity like the salvation army or something.

"I feel a great disturbance in the Force... as if somebody said, 'Oh don't worry about me scalping. I couldn't even dream of scalping. I'd only sell Star Wars stuff and give the money to some sort of charity like the salvation army or something.' and thought we'd believe them."

Once you start down the dark path...

Need I go on?

I could have gotten one at KB Toys a while back for $60, and I thought that was a great price. But $25!

I've not seen any further reduction on the Royal Starship here in Ohio. I still see it priced at $49.99, which is what I paid for it last year in March. There are very few store that still have them on the shelves and the one that still do usually have 2-3 which have been pilfered for the Red Astromech droid (sad).

I saw it for 30.00. I already have the Red R2-unit so I passed on it.

You wanna hear a score? last year during Christmas I went to
Walmart to do some X-mas shopping and I found the Queens Royal Starship for $50. the thing is that I had lots of gifts that I had to buy and little money for payday was 3 days away so I put it on layaway with some of the other stuff i was buying. when I went back 5 days later to pay for all the stuff I bought they forgot to charge me for the Starship and I got it for FREE!!!!!!!!:D :D

Foolish Walmart employees heh
