Which vehicle do you want "SUPERSIZED" Next?
« on: November 15, 2008, 06:30:38 PM »

Well?

I picked the Sandcrawler. The lowly vintage/reissued one is SO skimpy, it's the most undersized of the choices by a mile.

Ditto!  I would love a large Sandcrawler even more than a large AT-AT!  That would be the final kicker for a Purchase of the Droids diorama.

Sandcrawler would be cool, I guess.  I don't think it would be too popular with the kiddies though.  Not too many monumental SW battles took place with one of those.  A collector's dream though, no doubt.
Personally, I'd rather have a big, quality, OT playset.

I said sandcrawler. The shuttle and AT-AT are plenty big enough for a toy as it is. The sandcrawler could at least double as a playset. They could make it so one whole side comes off and it would be awsome.

However, I'm with haggis, I'd rather they do a quality OT playset. The deathstar would be ideal.

I've often thought that a third party should get into making large display scenes for Star Wars figure collectors as Hasbro doesn't seem to want to go there.

The trick would be copyright infringement I'm sure - but how could they sue over a large desert or snow setting? Inside the Death Star or Tantive IV would have to carefully done, but I'm sure they could do something close enough to work but not so exact as to get sued over it.

I think I've seen the one you're talking about (photos posted on RScum if I recall correctly). Yeah, that was absolutely amazing -- I don't think Hasbro would ever release one to that scale, but even if it was double the size of the old vintage Sandcrawler toy, it'd be a huge improvement!

Imperial Shuttle for me, hands down. I have a Saga Shuttle and love it, but it's pretty limited in terms of putting figures in etc... But saying that, a Sandcrawler would be decent, heck so would an AT-At. Is there an all of the above I can pick?

I picked the Gunship.... but it has to be in scale with the current AT-TE (to transport it) and have all the turrets and doors. I'd love to put a couple of speeder bikes in the back too.  :)

The Sandcrawler is nice. The one you guys are talking about is an amazing custom piece but in the end, as far as vehicles go, it's kind of boring.

The Imperial Shuttle is my second favourite SW vehicle and even though I don't own one yet I'd be pretty happy with the one that's out there rather than a mammoth version.

I was of the same mind, Hellboy (regarding the Shuttle).... until I parked my big wing TIE beside it.  :speechless-smiley-004:

I think this is the custom sandcrawler that you're talking about...http://jediinsider.net/g/index.php?mode=view&album=Custom%2FSandcrawler&pic=SandcrawlerTable.jpg&dispsize=600&start=0

I don't have a load of space for vehicles. But I would love to have a new Slave 1. I bought Jango's Slave 1 back in 2002, Because I thought it was pretty cool. (I got rid of it since then) Thinking about it now, that ship was kinda small and cramped. I think it would be awesome if Hasbro redid Boba Fetts Slave 1. A little cargo area would be cool to put Han into. They could release it for anniversary of ESB. My second pick would have to be an AT-AT, it would really be a monster of a thing.

I guess if it wasn't restricting myself to an existing vehicle update I'd be most happy with the Republic Attack Shuttle... the Tantive V would be a very close second.
