I was looking at the MTT at the store the other day and was wondering what my threshold would be to buy it. I could not really come up with a solid price point. Like I've posted before, HasbroToyShop.com has these for $149.00. I know the Turbo Tank, AT-AT, and AT-TE all sold for 50% off at different times, so who knows. At $65 to $75 I would be very tempted and would likely purchase it. My guess is that if Target and Walmart get stuck with a bunch of these after Christmas, we may see some dramatic price cuts. I know my boys would love to finally have a big Separatist vehicle for our Star Wars battlefields. My oldest son (7) cannot cope with the idea of the clone army fighting against an AT-AT...

The thing that really bugs me are the battle droids it comes with. Hasbro has said many times that this is a "kid-driven" line and I think the MTT really proves it. Most "mature collectors" would ikely have enough Battle Droids to fill or at least mostly fill this thing, while a majority of kids probably don't. So Hasbro felt the needed to load it with droids, which increases the price. I know they "dumbed-down" the droids, which minimized the added cost to some extent, but still.

... I picked up that Ninja Turtles Sewer Lair, that is heck more of a play set than the MTT, for even less $ than the MTT ...

I am not into Ninja Turtles, but that Sewer Lair is impressive. Seeing that reminded me that I wish that Imaginext could pick up a Star Wars license. They have done some AWESOME stuff with the DC Super Friends and Toy Story lines with some really cool vehicles and play sets. They incorporate a ton of fun play features into their toys that my kids love. I would love to see what Imaginext could come up with for Star Wars.

It's on sale at Fred Meyer here in the northwest for $119.99. And it can be had for even less if you use the 10% off coupon in the latest circular.
