Read that this weekend....It's going to be an online exclusive not at any retail store...It's going to have the vintage artwork on the package too....

I actually thought I might get another shot at this, until I read the "online" part. Which means it shall never go on clearance.

Details are still sketchy but it seems like if they put this back out, it will be readily available for those who want it...

Yes, but for $50 or less? Highly unlikely.

That rumor seems unlikely, based on Hasbro repeatedly saying there will be 3 [three] of those vintage-styled packaged vehicles this year.

They mentioned in a Q&A a while back that the 2008 Falcon will be resold online, in the same package and everything. So the rumor is bogus.

I'd actually like to have another BMF for another diorama (ultimately to replace my POTF2 and OTC Falcons) but I'm not sure I'd buy it if it was only available online with expensive international shipping plus customs. Also knowing Hasbro they'd later go for another rerelease with new sound effects (alternative dialogue from the films, the Falcon's distinctive hyperdrive malfunction sound, a sound criminally missing on all electronic Falcons so far)

I too missed out on the initial release of the BMF.

I have heard rumors that his will be a TRU in-store exclusive release (same packaging as 2008, as these would appear to be left over from the original run).

Conflicting that rumor is what is posted in this thread stating it will be an online only release.

Any idea if either of these rumors is true? And if so, any idea of anticipated release date?
