    Was at walmart tonight and noticed the SWTF Millennium Falcon in the clearance isle. Curious, I scanned it to see how much it was. Well it came up $13! Cheaper then a regular SWTF. I got one. I had wanted one but just couldnt spend the 35 on it. For $13 i got no questions asked. Pretty good deal!

    Nice find. My local WM finally marked them down to $13 as well, and a friend of mine in town found them at his WM for $10! Honestly, though, I still can't get myself to buy it.

    It's only a steal if you take it without paying for it. :D 

    I got mine for Christmas from my sister-in-law, so I didn't have to buy it at all!

    I actually kinda like it. SUre they are like extremely blocky for a toy made in 2006, however the falcon really didnt give them much choice really. It's fun to TF and kind of a neat reverse combiner where the alt mode is the combined mode instead of the bot mode. Glad I got it as my One and only SWTF LOL.


    I saw it at K-mart on clearance for $26....not much of a clearance. I held off buyign this forever even when it was $15 on black friday, however $13 i couldn't resist....I have all the classics and nothing to buy so i caved. Just need to get that damn wal*mart devastator whenever that is going to come out and the mysterious last two alternators.

    Bah, I got it for $10 when it first came it out, a WM pricing error. Still my biggest "steal" of late, much to my dismay.

    I got this toy for Christmas this past year and I highly recommend it as well. I'm not a huge fan of the SW TF line either, but I really like this toy. Under $20, imo, one can't go wrong with this toy. :thumb  :thumb

    I'm very tempted to pick up one MISB for $13. Don't know why, though. Maybe if it had the Titanium ships, I would, but that version's still $28.

    I got it for $15 on Black Friday. I price matched at Walmart so I got the set with the bonus gold Falcon/TIE titanium ships. So if you look at the titaniums costing $5 each like the single ones, the SWTF Falcon cost only $5.

    My nearest Tesco had them at half price, so they're probably in the larger branches of Tesco there too

    even at full price the suckers worth the admission, getting it at clearance is even more sweet.

    Yeah, I just picked up a second set for $10 at W with the Tit. bonuses thrown in. Now, I have to figure out what to do with those wastes of metal. I despise the SWTF's in general, but I love this thing! Must be 'cause the Falcon is well-designed and I have an unhealthy fascination with wookies.

    Hey, whatever happened to that Falcon with the two SWTTs as pack-ins? I heard it was a Holiday special thing, but I've never spotted it.

    I saw it once at KB toys with the titanium ships right before x-mas. Too bad those ships look cool. I did get a Falcon for x-mas. It was better than I thought, mostly stays in Alt mode but it is a pretty good Millenium Falcon, with sounds and lights.
    Mt daughter has pretty much hijacked it though. She like shooting the missle.
