I'm a Prime member, so it doesn't bother me but it does seem to be a half-assed implementation. At first I thought it was the lower price that is exclusive to Prime members, but it's actually the item itself that is exclusive. When I logged out of Amazon I was no longer able to add the Tie Fighter to my cart unless I went through a third party. They don't seem to be able to sell something at a lower price to Prime members while still offering it at a regular price for non-members. That seems like an odd strategy to me.
I'm also guessing they will be available online again today during the day, tomorrow, or Cyber Monday (as I think they were at least briefly available on cyber Monday during the day as well).
So as we are all used to just put the site up and keep hitting refresh until it shows the ability to add into the cart.
Last year I am fairly certain they showed up random times on BF and on Cyber Monday. Not sure if that will occur again, but I can see Walmart holding some for Cyber Monday, but that is just a guess. Considering most are likely popping up on eBay for 60 I would say waiting a couple of days to see if they appear during Cyber Monday online would be an option. Though you will likely need to be quick. I think when they appeared online you had about 15-30 minutes tops to buy one before they were gone again.
