I just saw some promos for the REBELS finale, and it got me thinking.  Not about the Ghost, which I would love, but I think might be a potential  HasLab candidate.  But it was actually about the Imperial Gunship.  It seems like it might work in the Hasbro realm.

Was never a fan of the Imperial Gunship. Something about it just felt off. There's a missing link in Imperial/FO vehicles that I always thought odd; you have shuttles and fighters, and AT-ATs, but no dedicated troop transport (unless I missed something). The one in the ST is fine, and I like the fact it echoes the Higgins boats, but I think design wise there should be some linkage. The cargo shuttle from RO is actually closer to what I'd imagine. That ship is great, and would make for an impressive toy.

I would love to see the Ghost though.

The rickshaw droid would make a perfect small vehicle pack.

So I'm late to the game with Star Wars Rebels, but man, that show is awesome. I'd buy the Ghost and the whole ******* crew.

It's not a list of three, but here are the vehicles I'd like to see...

Correctly scaled Skiff
Correctly scaled Y-Wing
Imperial troop transport (ANH, Rebels)
Imperial Shuttle (I think the size is ok with the exisiting, but the interior and landing gear needs retooling)
B-Wing
AT-PT
Darth Vader's TIE (retooled interior, remove the gun action feature)

I know most of us already have some form of it, but how long has it been since we got a version of Luke's X-Wing? I don't mean the non figure compatible one that came out around Rogue One, but the regular version. It is one of the most recognizable ships of the Saga, he uses it in all three original movies, and it seems like it has been a bit since release (unless I am forgetting).

I know vehicles are few and far between now, especially if there isn't a new movie to promote it. I wouldn't mind seeing this get an update/re-do at some point. I currently have the Dagobah version on display, and also own the POTF2 FX version and the Wedge Antilles exclusive.

Brian, have you seen the DeAgostini 1:18 scale X-Wing model.  Someone I know was brave enough to plunk down the money to buy into this model.  Looks to be the most amazing 1:18 X-Wing yet with moving parts and lights and sounds.

Whoever buys into that has to be a total boob.
