As another astromech freak, I can relate.  But I was very fortunate, I only had to trade to current Saga figs to get the droid.  It wasn't minty fresh, but pretty good shape and that's quite a bargain for the droid alone.  

The Starship would be cool to own, but I missed the clearance sale.  It weighs a ton and the shipping alone would cost a fair bit.

I live in a scalper wasteland.  I bought my 2 loose ones from a scalper for $10, but I saw several Starships with the droid ripped out.

I would have to say Naboo Fighter... I knows its nothing special, but it was the first one I got.  $8 :)  CDN

I would kill to get one of those gigantic starships but the price tag is too high.

Maybe I'll find one at a garage sale, yeah right. ;)

You'll never know what you can find at a garage sale.  My dad found a POTF2 AT-AT and Millennium Falcon (both with original boxes in good shape) for $6 each.  Now THAT'S a great deal, and at a garage sale!   ;D

I kinda like the AAT.  I have the Royal Starship, but I haven't opened it.  I just don't have enough room.

The Queen's Royal Starship. It had a whole bunch of fun stuff, including a fig, and anyways I really like the big vechles like that.

I like the Queen's Starship as well...  I was fortunate enough to get mine for $24.00 during TRU's clearance.   i really like the red astromech droid pack-in... name slips my mind at the moment.

Calm down killer.


I've played with the Gungan Sub. Does that count for anything?

Queen's Ship, undoubtedly. Got mine for $50 sometime in 2000.

The Naboo Fighter is a close second, though. I got that for $5 at Wal-Mart in 2000 also.

I'd have to vote Queen's Starship as the best Episode 1 vehicle, and the ATT as "runner-up".

AAT was my favorite, but the E1 line didn't yield a lot of vehicles I was impressed with.  The Flash speeder could've been really great actually, but it unfortunately was way underscaled.  They should've done better there.

The AAT was reasonably to-scale I think...  A little off.  There's a model that actually was to-scale I believe, ironically.  The Naboo Fighter could've been real great IMO...  I'd have loved to seen it done better.  I think it's one of the few designs in E1 that hold up tot he other films.

While maybe not technically being "vehicles" 2 of my fav pieces were the small catapult and  flash cannon.  Small very inexpensive peices, nicely packaged, nice push button light up features.  Yeah, looking back,theese were kinda cool and usually forgotten pieces.

That's a good point Bob that they're forgotten but incredible in detail.  The cannon was actually the one that lowers on the Droid ControL Ship and fires on the Republic Transport that brought Obi and QGJ there if I'm not mistaken.

They were both quite cool little items, and overlooked.
