The AT AT hands down is the best vehicle in my opinion. However...as far as "Ships" go, the Power FX X-Wing fighter wins that title. The electronics make it so cool, and if it only had a couple of the features (hole for R2 and storage) that the Saga X-wing had....it would be the perfect X-Wing.

Either way, it's still head and shoulders above anything else IMHO.

Hmm, that's kind of tough. I'd have to go with the Power FX X-Wing as a ship. For actual vehicle, I'd have to go with either the AT-AT, or the Skiff. Two of the best vehicles made, IMO.

Tough question. I have two POTF2 AT-ATs, but that's not my overall favorite.

I think the Millenium Falcon is it, at least for today. I always wanted one of those and when I finally got one, it blew me away with how cool it was.

For me, it's a tie between the Tatooine Skiff and the Y-Wing.  Both are pretty good.

Huh, that's funny, I thought the skiff was one of the worst.  It's just so.....basic.  Reallly not that much to it, particularly given what they go for.  I'm happy to have it and all, but I don't think it rates in the top five.

For me, I really like the way they packaged the skiff, for one.  It really added to the presentation.  The action levers are pretty good, too.  They actually work.

Ah, that may explain the difference.  I got mine loose. I have never seen one up close in the package.  Pics look cool, but that's irrelevant.  The levers do indeed work, it just seemed so plain to be so hard to get and so desirable.   I did get a very good price on it though.  I presume the vintage is not so good?

The vintage one's identical to the modern, except in the paint deco and packaging of course.  It functioned just as well even.

It's one of the rarest vehicles of the line though, and oddly so is it's modern counterpart (Though some areas received tons of these, to the point they clearanced...  At the time, some parts of the U.S. didn't even have Target stores, including my area, while other areas with Targets got sparse shipments of the item).

I'd have to go with the AT-AT too.  I didn't have one when they originally came out, so it has always been the Gran-dady of all toys to me.  I picked one up the second I found it in a Toys R Us. I thought the Falcon was really cool too.  Third would probably be Darth Vader's Tie Fighter.  I had to have one, Vader is the best!

I think the appeal factor is pretty up there for me, when it comes to the Skiff.  I had a hard time getting mine, first of all.  And then, considering how expensive the original  is, in the vintage line.  Those are some of the things that elevate the Skiff for me.

The AT-AT is my favorite vehicle for any toy line, bar none.

As far as vehicles go, the AT-AT is far superior in my mind, but for a ship I was always partial to Darth Vader's TIE Fighter.  :D

I have to agree with everone in saying the AT-AT...  It is an incredible vehicle and the two pack-in figures are a nice bonus!  I really like the FX X-Wing also,  best one to date in my opinion.  Don't have the Saga version yet,  so my opinion on that may be changed...

My favorite ship is the millenium falcon.I sure wish they had made the deluxe version like they did with the X wing.
