Blockade Runner is my guess.

I am guessing that it will be the blockade runner or the AT TE

A blockade runner would be very cool, as it would tie in with the Original Trilogy very well...

While I'd love to see it made in comparison to the Royal Starship in size, I'd also like to see a Juggernaut and AT-TE made... and a Homing Spider Droid...

Hmmm, well...

Homing droid would be the best one, IMO, since it's the most able to be broken down into a smaller vehicle and packaged "smaller".

As much as I'd want an AT-TE since I love the design, I really want one to-scale.  A throw-back to the old days when vehicles were big, like in the days of G.I. Joe ARAH.  I'm just not expecting that though. 

It's not huge, surprisingly, but part of me thinks it's just too big for Hasbro to do properly. 

When rumors persist of a 1:18 scale bomber from other toy companies though, I'm always left wondering where the big vehicles are in Hasbro. 

However, their track record is bad...  Can't blame them.  For what it was, the Gunship was a great toy overall, but just didn't move at retail really.

I heard a rumor from another collector (who I consider a very reliable source due to his track record) named Stan (he broke news about the Imperial Shuttle and Sandcrawler about a year before images surfaced) that we will be getting an AT-TE before Christmas time next year... I sure hope it's true.

I agree, the Homing Spider Droid would probably be fairly simple for Hasbro to pull off.  I'd get 2 of them at least.

Until the AT-TE sees fruition  ;) I'm going to place my bet on the scale maxing out at the medium level they've always used with for the 24.99-29.99 pricepoint, like the CW vehicles. So, I'm expecting these are as big as we get:

Proto AT-ST (the exposed pilot walker)
ARC-70

And I think I already owned the Juggernaught as a kid, it was called Big Trak.

Hey, that's pretty neat looking.  Make a nice base to a custom vehicle...  What was the "Big Trak" anyway?  I've never seen that toy before.

In some ways it probably was a modification of the old vintage troop transport

That Big Trak is very cool - what line of toys was it from?

Ok, the Big Trak is from ET, made by Milton Bradley in 1979.

An AT-TE?  If it is made, sign me up for no less than 3.

I think I would have to get at least 2 of them - 3 if space permits.

An ATTE would be very fine indeed!

I agree.  And if we don't get one in 2005, we probably never will.
