Good choices guys.  I know it's big, but the Homing Spider Droid really shouldn't be a hard item for them to make.

Homing Spider coudl be made to-scale if they made the legs removable in the packaging (IE: Some assembly required).  It's really mostly "air" and some thin legs, not so much big then. 

The Corp. Alliance Tank Droid is my top want though if there are new vehicles coming.  To-scale it'd be right around the $20 packaging size...  Not a big vehicle at all really, and one of the more prevalant in ROTS.  I'd say Grievous' fighter has a decent shot at being made as well compared to some choices. 

The tank droid's a top for me though, I really want that done to-scale in this line.  My Clones are itchin' to shoot at those SOB's.

I know how you feel Jesse... my clones need more Separatist vehicles to blow up.

Of the new choices, Id want the Commerce Guild Homing Spider Droid and the Droid gunship. I never could wrap my head around Grievous' ship.

The Naboo fighter is a nice sculpt.  The only problem was the silver paint didn't look so great.  If they re-relaesed it with chrome plastic on the front half, I'd buy another.

Call me crazy, but I don't think the Naboo N-1 Fighter that was done in 1999 can really be improved upon.  I think it's pretty spot-on in terms of detailing, and (Jesse, correct me if I'm wrong) it's in perfect scale to the actual ship.  The silver idea isn't bad, but I still think the Episode I version holds up to this day.

If I had my pick of what would be in this "Starfighter" assortment...

-V-Wing Fighter (include a Clone Pilot)
-Cloud Car (include a CCP)
-Homing Spider Droid
-Tank Droid
-A resculpted AT-ST

With these supposed new vehicles coming out, I really hope to see a CA Tank Droid or Spider Droid, a Cloud Car (Lobot and my Cloud Car Pilot need somewhere to go  :P), a V-Wing, and an AT-AP (the walker that looks a litte like half of an AT-TE) or an AT-XT (prototype Scout Walker used on Jabiim, Thule, and Raxus in the Clone Wars.)

I was also curious if the V-Wing was present during the third movie during the space battle. I think I saw several of them fly between the Republic Cruiser and Invisible Hand right as they were about to duke it out, but were they any more visible anywhere else during the battle?

The V-Wing escorted Palpatine to and from Mustafar, and it also was seen flying at the camera at the very end when it showed the Star Destroyer. Small amount of screen time, but I think it's worthy of being made into a toy.

I've never looked into it much but the N1 toy might be to-scale.  If not, it's only off by a hair...  Not a ship I'm fond of either way though as it's from E1 which is sort of blah, and really it's only seen/important in the one film for one minor battle...  For me to get behind a vehicle I'd need it to have been something important in the Clone Wars or Galactic Civil War...  That's me though.

I think it might be to-scale though Dr. P, I am not positive but eyeballing it and I think so.

I would think anything that Hasbro can shove a clonetrooper into would be considered and probable.  Even an AT-TE.  I am hoping that the upcoming Clone Wars series has some of these same vehicles.  So that Hasbro will make several that have been mentioned like the Spider, AT-TE, V-Wing, Turbo Tank, etc.

According to RS...

"OK, so first Hasbro makes the sweet, sweet Dagobah X-wing with retooled Luke, then they actually start answering the questions all the collector sites ask them, and now they give collectors exactly what they want… Assuming what they want are the SITH INFILTRATOR and the V-WING FIGHTER.

We're not talking about Titanium vehicles either. These are going to be scaled to fit 3 3/4" figures. Hokey Smokes, eh?"
