I am thinking that one of those vintage vehicles is the Naboo Starfighter. I am a feeling.

Considering that they have all-but already confirmed a new Naboo Starfighter for the E1 stuff, I wouldn't be surprised either. :P

From a recent Q&A session at Imperial Shipyards:

"Yes, Episode I in 3-D allows for a number of favorite vehicles to be added to the line.  Sadly, the Royal Starship and Emperor's Shuttle did not make the list.  But we think fans will be pleased with the line-up which includes a 100% newly tooled iconic vehicle.  We would be sharing too much information if we were to say that it is a yellow starfighter that rhymes with shampoo."

The Episode I line is probably how Hasbro is going to introduce the brown/green repaint of the current incarnation of the Vulture Droid.  Hasbro did say a while back that they would be repainting the Super Vulture Droid in Episode I era deco.

Can we get a Droid Battleship?  Yeah, I know the answer.  No.

Vac-Metal/Electro-plating isn't cheap, and doesn't work on all plastic types, so I'd REALLY be surprised if they were even considering a vac-metaled Royal Starship.  Just my $.02 on that...  I could see a re-issue, maybe a better more shiney paint/deco on it or something, but Vac-Metal doesn't seem likely.

They've denied the Royal Starship anyway.

Another potential Episode I vehicle reissue:  the Sith Infiltrator.  It hasn't been on shelves since 2008, and that might have been enough of a break for Hasbro to consider giving it another go 'round. 

As much as I'd like to see the Sith Infiltrator given the BMF vehicle treatment, I think they will probably want to try getting more mileage out of the existing Sith Infiltrator tooling.  But the flipside is if Hasbro doesn't upgrade the Sith Infiltrator now, will they ever do it?

The Villains & Sith sets sound potentially interesting.  But will they deliver?  Just brainstorming through some of the possibilities...

Holo Darth Sidious & Nute Gunray
Darth Maul & Destroyer Droid
Count Dooku & Super Battle Droid
Asajj Ventress & Tactical Droid
Darth Sidious & Shock Trooper
Darth Vader & Stormtrooper
Emporer Palpatine & Royal Guard

A new Gunray better be in one of them since he's the only villian other than Sidious to appear in all three prequels. (Unless you count the other Neimoidian in AOTC to be Haako.)

I like your idea with holo Sidious, and they should throw in the mechno-chair, with a new chair part for Gunray.

Assuming those Sith and Villains are Vintage/Realistic and not Clone Wars packs. They'd either be one of the other.

I'd lean towards CW...they'd want to milk the new Savage Oppress sculpts...plus they could reissue Sidious...

Don't want to post this with its own thread yet, though if the powers that be want to they can.

Anyway, if you hate Jar Jar binks, the JD Front Page has bad news for you, and 2012.  :-X

That's it. I'm done collecting if they are going to make the first new movie Jar Jar Binks since 2002. Of all the characters they could make or remake for the Episode 1 rerelease, they are going to make one of the lead characters who had a lot of screen time and hasn't been updated in 10 years?

In the most recent Rebelscum Force Cast Collector Edition (Sept 2011), DePriest mentioned that they have a Nightsister called Mighella sculpted, and she could be released in the vintage line. I'd be happy to welcome any Nightsister, whether it be realistic or animated, but I figured we'd see Mother Talzin first.
