Lots of great choices here, I'd be happy with any of those listed. I think I would stick with the classics that I always wished I had as a kid:

Death Star
Ewok Village
Dagobah

If this is the one from the 90's, no pics have ever surfaced, but the anecdotal evidence has always been it was a Pop-Up Diorama (like the Cantina and Jabba's Palace from the end of POTF2) of the Echo Base Hangar. It was cancelled because the whole line was cancelled at the time (and these dioramas didn't sell well when they did make it out on clearance after the fact), but the description of the set was basically an 18" wide backdrop with room in the middle to park a Snowspeeder.

Are you referring to the image of the Probe droid that surfaced?  Check out Gorkoracing's Instagram.  He's got images of the Probe droid, a couple of figures and an echo base console.  But that was it.  Still, the info surrounding that seemed to indicate that it might have been in the works as recently as 5 years ago.

My choices -

- Bespin Freezing Chamber

- ANH Death Star (modeled after the Kenner micro stuff is a great idea)

Modular Death Star and Jabba's Palace would be no brainers for me.  Bought my #1 would be the Jawa Sandcrawler if you can call that a playset vs. a ship
