I'd choose the B-wing or Y-wing but weren't those POTJ ships?

For the one ship I know is definitely POTF2, I go with the A-Wing.

Runner up:  Tatooine skiff.


EDIT:  Okay, the B-wing was POTJ, the Y-wing was POTF2.

I think i'll stand pat with "A-Wing" as my selection.

A-Wing and Interceptor, without a doubt...

A-Wing is to-scale, has freaking pop-rivets even sculpted on...  It's simply amazing.  Give it a decent pilot, and a good paintjob, and that sculpt holds up even against the likes of "X-Treme Detail" 1:18 airplanes and other items of the lik.e

The A-Wing just was a nice ship when it was made, which has lasted even today.  THat's a rare quality in a vintage sculpt.

The Interceptor's my close runner-up, again because it's in-scale.  It slightly lags behind the A-Wing because the cockpit pod is of course inaccurate.  Beyond that it's close enough to suit me.

Give it a rounded (noo battery box) pod and it's at least a tie with the A-Wing...  I'd ALMOST like to see it re-released, but only if it were DEFINITELY the same color as the current Interceptor is.  I don't want them looking like shite next to each other.

The TIE from KB was supposed to be properly colored, but low and behold Hasbro made it SLIGHTLY different.  Enough that you can't swap it with the Int's wings.

A shame.

Beyond these 2 vehicles, I am not fond of most of the POTF2 range, or POTJ.  Underscaled is many of the vehicle's major issue(s), but some are simply terribly sculpted...  The Y-Wing comes to mind there.

The Speederbikes and Snowspeeder are the rare breed that are overscaled.  Wish we'd get a new one of each of these too.

With a new Ewok Glider, maybe a new "simpler construction" Speederbike will happen?  Who knows.

I cast my vote for the Power F/X Xing, beautiful sculpt and the lights and sounds are outstanding.

This maybe sound odd, but my favorite POTF2 vehicle is the Cruise Missile Trooper. The only vehicles "new" to the POTF2 line was the Cruise Missile Trooper, the EU ones and the Swoop bike. The AT-AT is my favorite vintage vehicle. ;D

I'm inclined to agree with Anthony here.  That FX X-Wing was really nice.  The only thing that could've possibly made it any better would've been some type of mix 'n' match red stripes, signifying the specific pilot (Red 1, Red 5, etc.)  That, and no dedicated pilot in there.  I know that'd cause a problem with the likes of a fatass figure like Porkins, so they'd have to adjust the cockpit a little, or something.  Or just include some interchangeable heads in there...

Great ship though.

Not really, I got a Porkins in there (waist up) with an R5 unit in the droid socket. I'll show you next time you're over.

I relly like the SOTE slave 1 and the at-at walker. I also like the y-wing but I can't even find the new toys r us one or the older POTF one.
