A Falcon question from Sirsteves, In politics "No comment" means it's true! and this answer smacks of it's true!

SSG: While it's our site policy to avoid rumors, our readers have been wound up a bit on this one so they demanded we ask.... It seems like there was a lot of hype and rumor about a new Millennium Falcon vehicle for the main line, including the leak of a Target DCPI number that came with the AT-TE - which Hasbro is indeed materializing. There was a lot of expectation that Hasbro would unveil both the AT-TE and this new Millennium Falcon at Toy Fair, and while the former appeared, the latter did not, so might you comment on these Falcon rumors at all? If nothing else, a simple confirmation or denial would ease a lot of collector tension.

Hasbro: We have no comment on anything to do with a Millenium Falcon item, other than to say that it is not our policy to comment on certain rumors especially as they pertain to items that may appear in the Target (or any other retailer's) computers. Often, there is a reason for this secrecy because some items may be part of that retailers promotional tactics such as the Ultimate Battle Packs at Target. Whether or not there is another such concept in development will not be commented upon for this reason.

Millenium Falcon Pre-Order and Details!

The folks at Play.com have the new unconfirmed Millenium Falcon available for preorder for £139.99 with a due date at the end of August.

Meanwhile, we've got an e-mail with an attachment from what looks like a Hasbro catalogue with details of the ship (no picture though - just the new TLC Star Wars logo and the words 'Top Secret') and that it will include Han Solo and Chewbacca amongst lights, voice sounds (lifted directly from the film) and much more... thanks for the information whoever you are!

We've not posted the picture as we can't get any confirmation from Hasbro at the moment, it being Easter Friday - when we do, and if we're allowed, we'll post the image.

==================================

And here is the blah blah from the page on Play.com.

It certainly does sound like this is going to become a reality, doesn't it!

Hasbro said something in another Q&A, I believe that 2009 would have a nice OT focus, so maybe we're looking at a late 2008 release or early 2009?

:wink:

After seeing what we're getting out of the AT-TE for $100.00, I have a very good feeling about a new Falcon.

I think what we're going to see is going to absolutely blow us away. I'm thinking it will be about twice as big as the original, and be the most oustanding toy ever made in the 3-3/4" line.

:wink:

Either that or the biggest lemon ever made in the 3-3/4" line :) I think the people there are fans enough to have ensured the former though :)

Remember back when us old'timers were kids and there was that G.I.Joe aircraft carrier, sold for 100$? In today money that has to be 150$ if not 200$! A friend of mine got it for xmas, I used to go over to his house all the time to play with it, awesome. There was also that shuttle launcher complex but by the time that came out my father had banned me from further playing with toys hehe, too old.

I hope the entire saucer top and cockpit comes off to reveal the play area.

Ah, the USS Flagg. What a playset! I couldn't even imagine if we got something like that... wow. Maybe a Coruscant airstrip, with a building or two, and a huge area for troops to battle it out. Wow.

I did have the huge Joe shuttle and the terror drome as a kid. Man I tore those to hell though.

:wink:

You know what the equivalent the destroyer loading platform.

Oh definitely, AND the cockpit has to be to scale, that is be able to accommodate the two pilots with plenty of space between them as well as a peanut gallery behind them. Also the corridor where Han plants one on Leia only to be rudely interrupted by a meddling threepio. It'd be nice to have a built-in dejarik table with all the seating, maybe with some electronics to light up the board. At least one full size gunner station is necessary as well. Also need the chair where Han sits as he expresses his skepticism about the Force and room enough for Luke to do his training. There should also be the cargo space with removable panels to hide in, as well as the electronics compartment with the toolbox that falls on Han's head. And how about a little bed for a beat up Luke. And a hatch with an elevator. And it should be able to do my laundry and walk my dog as well.

Too much to ask? :) Wow this thing has the potential to be really amazing!

I had the GIJoe headquarters, with the little prison and the helicopter pad and everything :)

If they ever take a leap of faith like the one that had to be taken to make the USS Flag though, I'd like to see a Star Destroyer (the Executor.) The famous bridge with the pit and the giant windows, Vader's chamber, hologram room, and then some features from the venator class starships from ROTS such as a hangar and a cannon room.
