Thread: new y-wing

  1. #1

    new y-wing

    Is it really necesary for these new toys, such as the y-wing to be 79.99. I mean, come on. We all know that as much as we wish to send our kids to college, that our collections will never do that with market saturation as it is. Honestly, I love to buy these new toys for my kids to play with. I get so much more enjoyment from that than watching my starcases gather dust. My old star wars toys look like debris from the second death star battle. I have be a collector since 95' and its true, I do get caught up in value. For example I wanted to give my son my POTF AT-AT but when I saw it was worth $150 on ebay it was hard for me to fathom giving a 6 year old $150 of toy for fun. Shoot, my dad wouldnt pay $99 when I was a kid for the USS Flagg and it was huge. Im sick of Hasbro and their outrageous pricing. These items should be priced for kids to play with. All these plastics are going to have to be recycled in the future anyway in order to keep up with our demands for oil.

    No its not. And I aint buying it for that price. I didnt bu the Falcon until Clearance and got the AT-TE for a present, so I am ahead of the game.

    Have they said anything about electronics for this? I think the MSRP is going to be $69 which is a little better than what some e-tailers are charging. For that price though, you'd hope all the armor plating comes off so you can make it into an OT Y-wing. It had better have some nice sound functions too.

    The MSRP is $59.99. I think that's acceptable for the Y-wing, but for the repainted ARC-170, not so much. Online prices are almost always higher.

    That's pretty high price. I really want this one. I love the design.
    I wonder are we getting any extras included for that like a Matchstick Clone Pilot (my choice of figure) Astromech droid or Ashoka gunner?

    I remember paying a higher than normal price for the TRU exclusive red and blue Y-Wing though.

    $59.99 is on the high side, but I'd probably still get it unless I discovered something about it I really disliked. For the ARC-170, its definitely too much, but I probably wouldn't buy it for any price since I already own one.

    I think we're just getting the ship and the missiles and so on. An exclusive pack-in figure would really help soften the blow, though.

    Yeah, I still have to have it.
    You would think that with the Y-Wing's release maybe Hasbro will also do a pilot and possible gunner to put in it besides Oddball, he's more of a V-19 Torrent Pilot.

    I vote Matchstick even though he went up like one.

    [FONT=Courier New]Since it's an all new toy, I will definitely buy 2.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Courier New]The repainted ARC-170 will be an easy pass but only for the price. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Courier New]I think it'd look pretty cool to have a couple of the Imperial deco'd ARC-170's to go with the all black Darth Vader Sith Starfighter, but not for $60-$80 each.[/FONT]
