i know we already have a shuttle from ROTJ but the shuttle in ROTS in way cool and it would be a great way to have new versions of some key characters from the film. The set could include a new better sculpted emperor, with a lightsaber attached to his belt. the fallen half dead, charred anakin, and two medic clones with a stretcher. the shuttle would be a welcome addition to anyone's fleet and tie in nicely with the mustafar playset.
instead of making it an exclusive like the ROTJ shuttle, distribute to all stores, package price could be like $75 instead of the whopping $150 of the previous versions, and fans would buy it. I mean, it can't be that it costs that much to make the set. :)

I agree I would easily drop $75-$80 bucks on that. ONe condition though is.. Anakin would have to be removeable from the medical pod thing, with a removable oxygen mask. Plus this would be a great place to premeire a red Shock Troop figure, throw in 3 of them and charge me $100 bucks. I would have no complaints

Heck I wish they'd rerelease the FAO Scwhartz version, and distribute it to regular retailers like Target, & Wal-Mart. I hate ordering on line.

What version does FAO Schwartz have? I take it that it is an exclusive product for them?

It was the original Tyderium. K*B Toys had this as well and charged less for it. I got mine from a K*B clearance for $49...

Thanks for the help. I'll try KB but I do not think I will have much luck. I'll look at FAO's site to see waht they have. Thanks again.

I don't think you'll find one in any store anywhere. If I'm not mistaken this was released back when ROTJ SE was released.

FAO Schwarz?! LOL! Pegwarming figures for $10 a pop is all you're going to find there...oh yeah - overpriced statues and replicas too.

Actually it was released as part of the Saga line. I believe it was released at the end of 2002. But I still doubt you'd find any shuttles left except on the secondary market.

Yeah... the bint at FAO made such a huge deal about it being an exclusive and wouldn't give me a break on their window display model, which was their last one. Little did she know that K*B had announced that they were getting the piece for summer release. Heh heh heh... I showed HER!!!

I'd love the Shuttle. I played with (a vintage) one when I was a kid at my cousians house. It rocked so hard!

Anyway, isn't the one in ROTS smaller, anyway? Could solve some of the problems...

I remember seeing the old one as well as the new one....it's a big *** vehicle only dwarfed by the AT-AT. :)

I don't think I ever saw the AT-AT IP, but man did I WANT THAT THING! Man, I gawked over pics of it pretty much throughout my entire childhood, and was still a kid when the POTF2 version came out, but couldn't even think about affording it. Maybe someday I will splurge...

I missed the 'Saga' Shuttle & I kick myself whenever I think about it. 'Ocuh!' I would get a ROTS set up for sure, but I'm not holding my breath.
