I was reading through the "Figures Making the Cut
" thread, and started thinking about smaller vehicle/beast/Other items that I'd really like to see made before the line ends. I'm really happy with the updates to the Dewback and Tauntaun, but there are some other spots in the line that I'd really like to see refreshed...
• Jabba's Prisoner Skiff:
We may never get a sail barge...it's just a truth that we'll need to face eventually. But what we could get is an updated skiff. The one we have now looks
really nice, but it's just a bit too small. It would be great if we could get a skiff that's about 15-20% larger. Most collectors would buy two, to house all the skiff guard figures Hasbro's been pumping out in the past couple years, and match what's onscreen.
While I'm happy with the size of Hasbro's Acklay, the articulation is completely wonky. Some legs move one way, while others move in the opposite way, with no rhyme or reason. For this reason, the Acklay always has a turning to side look to him...at least on mine. Also, the head is always turned down. I'd love to see this beastie resculpted, with the leg articulation reworked.
• Vader's Meditation Chamber:
This thing is just plain cool, and really went a long way in adding to the creepiness of Vader when I was a kid. We see his scarred flesh for the first time, and Imperials have to come to him to discuss what's going on. He kills an Admiral over the viewscreen while sitting comfortably in his seat, for **** sake...badass. The thing is just creepy looking in general. We got one in the modern collection, but it's undersized and needs a top cover.
What about you guys? Are there any smaller scale (not "B" size) vehicles/beasts/other items you guys want to see before the end of the line?
