Sounds plausible to me. The game was nowhere to be seen in the NY TF pics and vids, so I guess it must be true.
Curse you, Hasbro!
(I'm sure they've got something to do with this. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if they stole the idea and made their own buildable SW boardgame.
Hasbro stole the concept for LEGO Games with their U-Build brand. Before the LEGO Games theme, Hasbro never had any serious competition in the board games aisle. It allowed them to leverage brands (like Monopoly) to get away with making games using extremely cheap and flimsy materials.
Hasbro may have found some legal ground through its use of the Star Wars license to make the Monopoly Star Wars Clone Wars Edition and the R2D2 in Trouble Star Wars Game.
