Man, $110!!!??? What was the Han/Tauntaun when originally came out? I picked my up off eBay years ago for something like $50-60. I truly hope that the stated price is wrong and it comes down. If it doesn't, sadly Luke with his Tauntaun will not be joining my other figures.

i agree exhaust, however, i don't think it will cost that much in tru (if you can find one when it arrives). i think the han and tauntaun was originally around the $40 area, don't quote me on that, i've lost too many brain cells since then :D

If I remember right, the Han and Tauntaun was more like 70-80 bucks. And I do believe that I once read that the Luke/Tauntaun will be some kind of radio controlled moving thing. Can anyone help me out there?

The Sandtrooper with Dewback was $70-80 at TRU this last year so I'd expect the new Tauntaun to follow that. The Dewback was a little more than I'd care to spend but I'm glad I got it. During the Thanksgiving day sales the left overs were going for $40 but they were all gone by the time I got there. Darn it!

As for radio controlled, I really hope not. My current Tauntaun doesn't stand on it's own now unless I strap the tail down. I can't imagine a RC version fairing any better with 1 lb of stuff stuck inside of it. Ditch the electronics, fix it so the Tauntaun will stand and keep the already high price as low as possible, please.
