I visited a KB Toy Works in Batavia NY today, and to my surprise I found a whole bunch of Episode I die cast ships on trilingual cards for a clearance price of $3.99. The original price was supposedly $12.99 according to the sticker. I assume that is a Canadian price. Expensive nevertheless.
They only had the four initial ships to sel (the Gian Speeder, Trade Fed Battleship, the Royal Starship and the Droid Federation Starfighter). Don't know if this is a local thing or not.
