Hasbro's Vintage Conversation Q3 - Vehicles
« on: March 1, 2018, 01:19 PM »
They're asking about vehicles now... I haven't chimed in but I'm leaning towards a better scaled Sith Infiltrator, Krennic's Ship, and Ghost.

I keep forgetting about the Ghost.

I went with: U-Wing, FO Troop Transport and the Resistance Bomber.

This one is kind of tough.  There are loads of vehicles that would make interesting choices.  And I was even able to find an old Most Wanted Vehicles post that I made about 10 years ago.  It's actually funny to look through this:


EPISODE I
-Naboo N-1 starfighter - w/ vac metal parts, and working droid socket (which would require an R2 unit with telescoping dome) MADE IN 2012, MINUS VAC METAL
-Trade Federation Battle Droid transport - I think this has a much greater likelihood of being made than the MTT.  The MTT is just huge, and this seems like a more attainable goal with some genuine play value.  As for getting my own MTT fix, I think that I might have to make do with tracking down the Pepsi MTT cooler. WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THEY WOULD MAKE THE MTT?!?!
-Gungan Bongo - This plays a  relevant enough role in TPM that it could do well with the kiddie audience


EPISODE II
-Dooku's Solar Sailor
-Republic Gunship - Carrier
-Rickshaw droid


EPISODE III
-Republic Assault Gunboat
-Yoda's Kashyyyk escape pod
-Droid Gunship MADE IN 2011
-Droid Tank MADE IN 2009
-Wookiee Catamaran
-Bail Organa's speeder
-Clone Turbo Tank MADE IN 2009
-Theta class shuttle
-Imperial V-Wing  MADE IN 2009


EPISODE IV
-Imperial Landing Craft
-Rebel Hangar pilot transport  MADE IN 2009


EPISODE V
-Snowspeeder - resized - The snowspeeder is really a small vehicle, and you can see the most striking contrast between the cockpit of the vintage toy (your figures swim in there) and the cramped cockpit of the vehicle in TESB. MADE IN 2010
-Twin pod cloud car MADE IN 2010


EPISODE VI
-Jabba's Sail Barge  ON THE WAY????
-AT-ST - new sculpt - the scenes with Chewbacca and the Ewoks in the AT-ST really showed that the vehicle should be a twin seater.  Given the current state of the AT-AP, a more accurate AT-ST should be an attainable goal.  MADE IN 2009


EXPANDED UNIVERSE
-Ebon Hawk - Why not go for one of the coolest EU ships of all time?



Looking through all of this?  I'm having a tough time finding a good candidate for my list of 3.  Frankly, I'm shocked to see all of the ground that Hasbro covered in the past 10 years.  And what's left isn't super inspiring.  So I think I might swing for the fences here:

-Krennic's Shuttle  - ROGUE ONE
-Rebel Transport  - THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK (but now as a more functional vehicle, rather than a carrying case)
-First Order Troop Transport - THE FORCE AWAKENS
****HONORABLE MENTION:  Blue Leader X-wing - ROGUE ONE - a la the Red 3 X-wing from The Vintage Collection

The Ghost, TIE Defender, Kylo Ren's Shuttle

Went TIE Defender too, then the AT-PT from West End Games (concept art), and lastly a decent Stormtrooper Transport cuz the Rebels toy blows.  I didnít aim high in vehicle size.  If I did I want to scale starfightets finally.  XWing and YWing.  BWing then.

I still think my #1 want is a more accurate and correctly scaled Skiff (to go with the Barge, duh).

I'd be kind of interested in a Zeta-class cargo shuttle (the Rogue One shuttle the rebels used to land on Scariff).

I'd love a Stormtrooper landing shuttle, like in the background of ANH. Also, a properly scaled Y-Wing and Skiff would be awesome.

I'd also like a rerelease of the 2010 snowspeeder in other Rogue colors. The one we have is Luke's, and it doesn't have the squad markings. Hell, I'd just like to get a few more of them.

How is the scale on the B-Wing? I was watching ROTJ the other day, and it didn't look too far off, but I couldn't be sure. That's a ship I'd like to see return in one of the movies. Didn't get enough screen time, IMO.

The TFA dropship would be kind of cool, I think.
I like the AT-M6 but that would be rather large.
I'd dig the solar sailer.

If I could vote, I'd say:

Imperial Shuttle
Properly colored TIE fighter
X Wing - customizable. (Includes stickers/decals to make your own, i.e. Red 4, Red 6, etc..,

Though a TIE Defender would be pretty sweet as well.

If we going to look at using resources for vehicles, we should try to get some all new ones where we can. So with that in mind...

The Ghost ( from Rebels)
The Twilight ( from the Clone Wars)
Imperial Sentinel Class Landing Craft ( from Rebels and the ANH SE)

I think this would be cool.  We don't know anything about it, but it looks like a cool ship that would be a heck of a lot more fun than a Canto Bight Police Speeder *yawn*.

It's tough, since they've covered much of the OT pretty well at this point. I agree with Jeff's choice of a new Skiff though.

The Ghost
Tattooine Skiff
AT-M6
