Okay, I'm a little confused...

Will there be a difference in price for OTC and VOTC figures or not at Target? or were you just listing OTC figures?

Unleashed at Target??? Wow, that's a new one. I've never seen them carry this line.

Falcon price is still too high, but I know I'm going to "bite".

Ooh, Tie Fighter for $18! Hmmm, I think these will be in short supply where I live...

I do believe it is only OTC Sal, VOTC SRP is 9.99

The Millennium Falcon is priced pretty well considering that I believe it was $50 the last time it was released-- without the light up engines, and that was, what, seven years ago? Eight?

The X-wings and TIE Fighters are priced nicely. Also good to hear the Falcon won't be too high, as some people earlier said.

That I recall (and I may be wrong), the Falcon was only $30 when it came back out in the mid 90's.

Ah well, like I said though, I'm still going to "bite" and get this one.

I'm sure it was $50. I remember being very broke at the time and thinking it was really expensive. If I knew then how much I would spend on Star Wars I think I would have never started. ;)

The original release of the Falcon in the vintage line was $30. I remember saving for it when I was a kid. These are things you don't EVER forget. I am pretty certain the POTF2 version retailed for $50 or somewhere thereabouts. I am pretty confident that the prices listed in the Target computer will hold. I believe they are considering the VOTC figures as "deluxe" figures as there are no Ultra Figures coming out during the time frame for these particular adds. I think the adds on the Unleashed line may have come as a result of the re-issues of the some of the earlier HTF releases.

I just checked the database. They carried a MSRP of $49.99 and were cleared out at JCPenney for $29.99 and KayBee Toys for $25.

17.99 does sound like a pretty good price for the smaller ships. I think I'll get a TIE if it has the corrected cockpit.

Hmm... $30 for 12 inch?!?!?!?!/1 (Damn, I broke out in / and 1s again)
There goes a Custom 12inch Kyle Katarn...

The smaller vehicles and the basic figs are priced well. But what's with Deluxe? I never heard anything about Deluxe in the OTC line.

$6 for regular figures, 80% of which require no new tooling at all (which is, according to Hasbro, where most of the costs come from)?!? That's a load of rich, creamery butter! What the hell kinda BS is this, the line is struggling to stay on its feet as it is and so Hasbro makes it even less desirable by allowing Target to jack up the prices?!? Uh uh, no thanks.


BTW, I hadn't heard this line had Deluxes, so I'm guessing the $9.99 Deluxes mentioned are the VOTCs.
