It's difficult to deny that it's cool, but I don't think it could be made now in a way that would really get people buying it - even if it were 2005. Given how long the ship is supposed to be, and its rather bulky design, shrinking it down to the starfighter assortment would look horrible. There is no way to properly preserve the look if changes are made for a figure to interact with it, as the canopy would be huge compared to what it's supposed to be. That said, the only way I think it'd sell at $24 is if it was made originally to be $50-65, and clearance knocked it down to the $24.
I'd buy 5 if it was a Titanium though.
