Owen D is asctually in the process of creating a behemoth Death Star playset for me, which will probably take a few months. It is going to be modular too.
Also, I was thinking last night about how in the world are we ever going to get more playsets that we really want? How can this be done to make the hardcore collecting community happy? We know Hasbro won't do it, and to be honest I am starting to be glad that they won't. Whatever they would make would't look realistic and would most likely be bogged down with cheesy action features.
So, what are the options? Buy a $4,000.00 ATTAKUS Death Star? Hell no, that's too pricey!
But... what if... Gentle Giant got the rights to create something? I could see their company being more willing to expend the resources to make something like this (and they wouldn't cop out on it). They would all be sort of like mini-movie replicas. I could see decent sized playsets retailing for the $100.00-$150.00 range, which is affordable for those of us that really do
How cool would this be? I am going to make a few drawings maybe of some ideas, and see what you all think. Maybe I'll be a total geek and send something to them.
I think they should take a good look as stuff like this by Owen D -
