Big Items of the Future!

Wow.  First the AT-TE and the incredible huge-o Falcon.  Hasbro has gone far beyond my wildest hopes for large scale items.  Lets just say these things sell really well, what other large items could they produce?

Will they still be gunshy about playsets using the excuse that only large vehicles sell?

As I said in am earlier post, Hasbro is catching on that there is some serious money to be spent on large, QUALITY items...maybe they want the people they've lost to MR and GG back!

Any thoughts?

The Sailbarge is the only big vehicle that I can imagine having enough playability to be considered.

I agree.  It's the only "aggressive" type vehicle that could also double as a playset type setting within the body of the barge.  Plus it's the only larger vehicle I can think of that had enough screen time to warrent such a large vehicle.  It could also be in the CW cartoon due to Jabba's lil boy.

I can already hear the seething rage from some people that a big item/vehicle/playset discussion is starting... oh wait, ARE getting some of this now, just as the faithful have been predicting. 

I'm sure we're going to have to wait and see how sales are on these, but it shows that Hasbro finally realizes there is demand for larger items in the 3-3/4 line.  Will we see a Sail Barge somewhere down the road?  Or a new attitude towards playsets?  We can certainly hope so.

Anyways, what we're clearly seeing here is that the whole "Hasbro will never make big items so quit wasting valuable questions about them in the Q&A's" crowd isn't as all-knowing as they try to appear to be, which is pretty damn funny.

How long before folks start clamoring for a 6ft long $500 Star Destroyer ship/playset?   :D
