I think some people, not all, are misinterperating this word "retooling". When HASBRO "retools" a new toy using an existing design, say the Shuttle Tyderium, they don't ACTUALLY use the SAME mold as the one produced in 1983/84. What HASBRO is doing with ALL of the "retooled" vehicles (ie. X-wing, TIE Fighter,etc.) is taking an original toy from 1978-1985, and making a mold from IT. The actual molds for those toys are looooong gone. If they do exist any more, they are probably serverely detereorated(sp) thus making it impossible to make a mass amount of product. Making new molds can cost thousands of dollars. I'm sure the price of making molds has also increased in the 20 or so years since Kenner used them. Not too mention the price of licensing from Lucasfilm. I agree. $125 is pretty steep for a toy, but if the 5,000 limit is true, this would be the companies way of making some sort of a profit off of the "retooling" and cost of plastics, labor, packaging and shipping them to our penny pinching arses.
