R2DToys are taking pre0oerdes for £45 including postage, but can't guarentee the delivery date.
I'm sooooooooooooo excited (see relevant thread in Saga)

Think I'll hang fire on pre-ordering this until they've got a provisional shipping-date listed on the website... just in case it does crop up somewhere else in the meantime.
I'm seriously considering pre-ordering the Imperial Shuttle from them for £95 though, in spite of the price. The sooner people order this, the sooner the store will have an idea of how many to order from FAO/Hasbro - and the money will come out of my account at the same time (December) regardless of whether I submit my order this week or next month.
Be interesting to hear anyone else's thoughts on this... ?

I might order the Gunship, it'll only turn up here at an outrageous price.

£45 seems a bit pricey for the Gunship, considering you will have to buy 2 Clonetrooper pilot figures to get the 2 gun pods for it. That will push the price up to £56 or above.
On the plus side, it is a HUGE craft, and has lots of functions etc, so then again £45 don't seem too bad.
As for the shuttle, £95 is also a bit pricey, considering that it doesn't have any electronics, as the vintage version did have them.
There is a plus side to this aswell. The POTF2 AT-AT was originally £99, and the Episode I Royal Starship was £120 rrp, and both were reduced later in their brief lifespan.
Hopefully, this may happen to the shuttle too, depending on availability etc. but I severely doubt it. :(
Besides would you rather pay £400+ for a vintage boxed one, or £95 for a brand new boxed SAGA one ??
I see that US stores KB & TRU are taking preorders for the Gunship now for $40.00.
THATS ONLY £26 to us, are we going wrong somewhere ??

No, just unlucky! I mean we pay £6 at R2Dtoys for figures cause that's a standard price - the things are £3.50 in the states. That's why I've made sure I was over there for the Ep 1 and Sga launches to give myself a head start!
