Considering the fact that the FLAGG cost $109.99, I would think it would cost much more, I would think at least $200 to $250. I would think that Hasbro would improve upon what is there, better looking consoles-ie sticker detail, I think the original prototype was higher, I would certainly like to see that-but that's just me.
As far as pre-ordering, yes, I would.

The new Millennium Falcon is $150. The Flagg would be at least twice the size so I'm guessing upwards of $300. I realize that's not a scientifically sound formula but $200 seems optimistic.

I'd say if the Flagg recieved the same upgrade the Falcon got, but kept it's size (It's as long as 3 Falcons BTW) There would a lot more detail and electronics now included (Other than a bicycle PA system )
3 Falcons cost $450 you could possibly subtract a little from that as there wouldn't be 3 times the electronics, but then there's the massive amount of plastic, detail sculpting and engineering put into making it breakdown into a smaller box (No way this vehicle gets pre-assembled and put into a 7 1/2' X 3' X 4' box) I could easily see this having a price tag of $400-$500 and that means we'll likely never see it at that size.
If we ever do get a Flagg, it will be much smaller and probably looked down upon by most collectors because it's not like the original and therefore it must be a bad toy not worthy of spending hard earned money on. A few would be bought at first but most would be bought once they go on clearance and Hasbro would have more proof that big ticket items just don't sell well.

Too much, but I'd order it too. I'd probably just have a difficult time finding out where to put it. I still remember the Christmas in 1985 when I received it the first time! My mother gave away all my JOEs and Wars figures, so it wasn't until recently I pieced another one together. I did find a pretty sweet box for it though. See my avatar. Anyways, I think it'd cost about $400, but would go on sale for $200. Just my two cents though.

I think getting a new Terror Drome is more likely than a Flagg.
But I don't think that's likely either. Joe vehicles have not really flown off the shelves the way the single carded action figures have. Hasbro's still wary of doing bigger Joe stuff like the Night Raven and WHALE.
I wonder if the movie line will have any "flagship" vehicles. Sad to say, but that might determine the market for bigger Modern vehicles.

I would like to see a new GI Joe and Cobra Base myself. I need something to store all these figures in. I have desings to build my own, created the senior of high school in my drafting class, but I don't have the money to buy the plastic. It's massive.
As far as vehicles go, we're just not getting the right ones. I would love to see the Rattler and Conquest at all major retailers and not an exclusive. I would also like to see some of the older vehicles revisited, like they have started doing with the old Skyhawk. I have 4 hiss tanks and a couple of VAMPS. I can't wait for the Stinger(hope it gets released)
