Sadly, it doesn't seem that way... 350$ for the Dropship and AT-OT.  :sick:  Incredible set, good source of clones and all but at 1758 pieces 350$ is a freaking joke. :angry:

I know it's really sad I mean think about it the current ATTE and Gunship together are $260 Canadian. Yet the Walker and drop ship are 350 and it appears that each model is smaller than a similar counterpart. The drop ship is just like the gunship but missing its main hold :angry: . Ugh the rest of '09s line up will probably end up following suite. :cry_sad:

As sad as it is, your right. Probably 120$ for the Endor bunker, and 27 for Hoth and the snail tank. Both overpriced. I'm pretty sure with most sets, TLC quadruples their price for producing the set, then if it's licensed tacks on a larger price tag.  :hmpf_bad: I'll get the Endor bunker as well as multiples of Hoth and the snail tank. Possibly the MD MF as well.

Don't worry, it is definitely worth it. Although that's coming from a guy who got it in the U.S. for $100 less, when the dollar was around par.

Well, the Dropship and AT-OT is ridiculously overpriced, but the new Emerald night train set is a lot more reasonable ($130 for just over 1000 pieces)  :thumbup: I might get it, its very well-designed.

The AT-OT looks really nice and is the only thing I want from that set. The Laat/c is nice but to close to the rpgs for me...
Overall looks real nice though, but for 349.99!!!!! I'm probly gonna wait a bit, see if it goes on sale.
The Venator I can not wait for... I'm simply in love! cant wait for it. Altho ill probly gut it.
The corporit ailiance tank droid also looks good.

Enough of this price complaining.
The AT-OT and drop-ship has been moved to march 10th for release.
Looks like you'll have to find a good real-estate agent :tongue:

Maybe if you live in a cardboard box with 350$ inside of it!  :tongue:   Then selling your house to pay for it would make more sense!  :grin:
