From the sounds of the various Q and A sessions Hasbro has done recently, it sounds as if the vehicles offered in "The Saga Collection", if any, will be repaints and retools. No Cloud Car, at least not for this year from what has been reported. One vehicle that does seem to be confirmed is a retooled TIE Fighter with new scaled wings. Knowing that any vehicles released, at least next year, will be using previous molds and likely involve only repaints and/or some minor retooling, what would you like to see? Are there any that you think should be re-released again? Here's a few I wouldn't mind seeing, although I'm sure some will disagree:
Snowspeeder - Only because I missed it the first couple of times. One of the few vehicles I had as a kid (but don't have anymore), so it holds a special place for me in that aspect. I wouldn't mind seeing it released again, but it was just out in POTJ, so it might not happen.
AT-AT - Although I probably don't have the room for it, I'd try to figure something out. This is the "big one", and it would be nice to see it on the shelves again. If not, I'll probably try to pick up a loose sample from POTF2 some day when I have the spare cash. Probably not a real likely re-release, due to pricepoint. It seems like anything over $15 (Unleashed) scares Hasbro and retail at this point, especially in a non-movie year.
Tatooine Skiff - It saw release in POTF2, but many people seemed to have missed it (I did too). Could be a nice re-release, and not a real high pricepoint.
Speeder Bike Sets - Not necessarily needed, but might be a neat lower pricepoint release. If Hasbro comes out with some new versions of Luke and Leia Endor, along with a SA Scout Trooper, they would make great pack ins with a speeder bike. Again, might not be likely, but I'd like it.
Ewok Battle Wagon - Again, maybe not a popular choice, but might be an option for re-release. When I was a wee lad, I know I wanted one of these...and especially wanted the Village playset...but that's a whole other topic.
TIE Bomber - Maybe a possibility, wasn't a real wide release from what I saw. I saw one once, and didn't have the money at the time, so missed out. Might be an option for a re-release if the demand is there.
I guess my list is only OT vehicles, but right now that's all I'm interested in really. There are probably other choices for retools and repaints that many of you can think of, these are just off the top of my head. I'm happy with my Falcon, TIEs, Slave 1, and X-Wing...and those are nice vehicles too...but they have been released somewhat recently so aside from the new scaled wings TIE, they can probably rest for 2006. Are there any ships you'd like to see repainted or re-released? From the sounds of things that's the only way we're going to get any vehicles next year.
