With the recent announcement of a buyout, I fully expect there to be even more Hasbro exclusives offered at FAO Schwartz, continuing their policy of making it as difficult as possible for consumers to purchase their products.:D

What was the last FAO exclusive? I don't think they had any POTJ, did they have any E1 exclusives?

There is one near my mom's house that I check out when I visit her, but they never have anything. They still have green carded w/ hologram figures on the shelves with 1/2'' of dust collecting on top. Although I did get my luke w/ wampa there, and I never saw it any place else.

Didn't FAO get the Faamba? That or the Falumpaset.

....did anyone else happen to catch the TLC network's "Billionaire Toys" program last night? It showed where the FAO on 5th Avenue in NYC has a special room where only the richest customers and their kiddies are permitted to enter. Lots of pricey and neat playthings in there like a real arcade-version Star Wars pinball machine, and an FAO Schwartz exclusive $100,000.00 Monopoly set with 24-karat gold pieces, a diamond-, ruby- & sapphire-encrusted mahogany playing board, and most decadent of all - it uses real money (U.S. currency). Amazing.
