Dragging this topic over from the TVC section...

I was thinking about this last night as I was dusting some shelves.  It's too bad that things are in a crazy state of flux right now, because there are a bunch of low hanging fruit here for Hasbro. 

So many little vehicles mentioned here already (the Mos Eisley speeders) and even stuff like Yoda's Escape Pod from RotS would make a nice set.  Hopefully they find a way to keep the Class I sets alive in whatever happens next with the line.   :-\

They need beasts. Geonosian on whatever it's called. Kaadu with Gungan or Tarpals. A better Nexu with Padme and Geonosian.

I'd love the new speeder bike out there with a weathered scout and an Ewok or rebel commando. Cost purpose wise, they could ditch the stand and laser cannon and TRU exclusive buyers would not feel cheated.

The 90's EU mcquarrie Airspeeder is probaby too big, but I'd like a Marvel "City of Bone" version with stromtrooper.

Speederbike with a Rebel on it, be it a variant/modified TVC Endor Reb or the EU Rebel Biker Scout from West End Games (less likely, but I'd be giddy) would be something I sunk way too much money into when it came out.  Like, way too much.

Han's Cloud City Racing Airspeeders from the Ken Palpatine books! With Ken Palpatine, of course!

(That's a serious answer. I want a Ken Palpatine figure. :-X)

Had a #nerddream last night that I found a Class I Death Star Gun with Saga'06 DS Gunner and gray Death Squad Commander (DS Trooper repaint) and a Home One Holotable/Display with OTC Madine and TVC Ackbar.  :-[

Who the heck is Ken Palpatine? The Emperor's idiot brother?

Ken on Wookieepedia

There was a series of kids books in the 90's and long story short is that Ken is Palpatine's grandson. I believe he is even more hated than Jar Jar around the Star Wars community, if that's even possible.

I think some updates or adaptations of the Kenner mini-rigs might be pretty welcome.  But some other ideas come to mind, too.

Death Star troop transport (Imperial version of Rebel Hangar transport?) - with Stormtrooper & Imperial Scanning Trooper

Yavin IV watch tower - with Rebel Fleet Trooper & Rebel Honor Guard

Hoth Rebel Cannon - with Luke Skywalker in Snowspeeder gear & Echo Base Trooper (TVC 68)

Hoth Rebel mini-tank (modern take on vintage MLC-3) - with Princess Leia in Hoth gear & Hoth Rebel Trooper

Hoth Vehicle Maintenance Energizer (modern take on vintage mini-rig) - with Chewbacca & Echo Base Trooper repaint

Hoth Rebel Laser Radar Cannon - with Echo Base Trooper & Hoth Rebel Trooper

Hoth Rebel Hangar transport - with Echo Base Hangar Crew & Snowspeeder Pilot

E-Web Cannon - with 2 x Imperial Snowtroopers

CAP-2 (re-imagining of the vintage CAP-2 mixed with the Trandoshan hunting platform) - with Bossk & Dengar
