Thread: Arc-170

  1. #1

    Arc-170

    Well, I posted a good thread about HASBRO, so i guess now its time for a bad one. I saw the new Shadow ARC-170 (is that what it is called?) at Toys R Us and I almost died when i saw the price tag. $79.99 for a repaint of a vehicle that was what, $44.99 last year? What the hell are they thinking? I mean seriously, almost doubling in price. That is absolutely ridiculous. Looks like that will be a wait until clearance purchase. Seriously though, HASBRO, what are you thinking???

    I would love for this to be a question that gets asked to HASBRO in the next Q&A.

    I am getting rid of my entire carded/boxed collection. I have almost every variation from POTF2. If there is anything you need, just let me know.

    I know what you mean!! They actually have addressed this in a Q&A stating that the price hike was justified to support the new line of mid-sized vehicles. If they weren't at this price we would not be getting the new y-wing or any others that could come down the pike.

    Yeah, I know what they have said, but I also know BS when it is being shoved down my throat .

    This is the same ship that got the Shark paint scheme for Target and they were $30 then (oh back in 2007 or 2008).

    So much a pass...this has to be a justification for the CW Y Wing to be priced the same way...

    At least with ARC 170 they could have tossed in a CW pilot & Imp Droid (saga) loose in the box as a thank you & handshake.

    I didn't even buy that one until after xmas when the price was cut down to $20. And even then it wasn't until I'd put the matching clone pilots and droid in it that I felt I'd made a good decision. There's no way I buy this one. Unless it goes down to $20 again, then maybe.
