The repack of the 2008 electronic Millennium Falcon in new Vintage Collection packaging costs $249.99 at Toys "R" Us (it's currently a store exclusive). I love the Falcon and Vintage packaging is a sheer work of art that makes me drool, but I'm not shelling out 250 bucks for it. The 2008 version in Legacy Collection packaging cost just $140, so essentially you're paying for the thing being a limited store exclusive and the classic-looking old school box.
No thank you. It's pretty gorgeous, though.
I've got one of those "D'oh!" stories regarding the Millennium Falcon
Just before Hasbro unveiled the 2008 Falcon
, my local Target still had the original (Kenner) version that I think was re-released in 2004 or so. To make room for the new ones, they slashed the 2004 Falcon
down to just 20 bucks. I took a pass on it because I just didn't have any room left in my house for it.
As fate would have it, I moved into a bigger house less than a year later with plenty of storage space.
To this day, not getting that 2004 Falcon
is high on my toy regret list...
