I was really bummed when they didn't go balls out and do a scale X-WIng honestly... Totally in the realm of possibility, especially if you're doing it as a "break down" piece made of multiple sections. I've yet to buy the new tool and never will I'm afraid, though I too would dig the box.
I really wish Hasbro did some premium ships... I'd pay more than $60 for one, but I may be in the minority on that... Imagine though, a scaled Y-Wing with a better level of detail than the typical Hasbro ship? I'm there for $100 on that even.
