The Slave 1 already has two molds so far... vintage/POTF2 and the SAGA/OTC version. Any reason why you'd choose another resculpt of it over the others?
I can't speak for Darth_Anton, but a Slave I
seems to be a totally reasonable ship to resculpt again, if the rumors of the character's involvement in the live action series are true. If Boba Fett is anything near a major recurring character, it would make sense that this vehicle could be a recurring location as well as a key vehicle. Heck, if there's any of Boba catching people and throwing them in cages in his ship, I'd be more shocked if we didn't see a roughly $50 Slave I
at some point. As a center of action, there's plenty of good reason why, in 2010 or 2011, we could, in theory, see it. Of course, the same argument could probably also be made for pretty much any vehicle-- shoehorn it into the TV show, and wait.
(Plus the Saga and OTC versions had some extensive changes between them, surely they could get a bunch of these features in a larger, single unit. I miss the cargo hold from the original.)
