I'm sorry, but I have to say it: What a piece of junk!!!

This is a joke. Hasbro says they can't put out the BMF because it would cost $400 (even though there wouldn't be any tooling costs), yet they can create completely new tooling for a piece of junk like this and retail it for $100? That doesn't add up to me.

I see this fills the niche for a Falcon that is small enough not to be incredibly expensive and can be carried and flown around by a kid. There is minimal interactivity with 3.75" figures due to the hampered scale, but the features and its accessibility will still make it much loved by many a child. Of course, there's so much more that it could have been, but I get the problem that Hasbro has with finding a viable sku for such a large hero vehicle in this age of soaring production costs.

This one isn't for us. I wish there was, but am not gonna begrudge the kids their MF.

Too bad these are cardboard and kinda lame. On the Vandor set, at least the gate/wall thing looks cool. I might buy this just for that.

Yeah, the gate is cool (ish). May buy the set and toss the rest. Depending on the price.

I agree, these are lame, but we have been saying for years, "Give us ANY playsets, even cardboard." Reap what you sow!
