O.K. it's been a while since we had a wish list. And now that RC/ERTL/PL
has (we hope) the Star Wars licence, I got the idea from another board
to start this thread.

This is what I would like to see:

1/72 AT-AT (w/interior and figures)
1/72 Snow Speeders (w/interior and pilots)
1/72 Rebel Transport
1/72 Tauntauns (w/riders)
1/72 Set of Figures (Han, Luke, Leia, Chewie, C-3PO, R2-D2,
Obi-Wan, Vader, bunch of Rebel Forces, bunch of Storm
Troopers, etc...)

I am sure I will think of more but it's a start.

Come on RC! With the Trek and Star Wars licences you could
take the Sci-Fi world by storm and make a lot of money.

James :)

Um... wouldn't 1/72 scale figures be kinda.... tiny? I see your point, they'd be handy for diorama purposes with the AT-AT, etc.... but I think 1/35 would be as small as they could go and still have reasonable detail. (A 1/35 AT-AT? Whoa.... )

Tauntauns with riders is a very good idea.

I picked 1/72nd as that seems to be the most popular scale
with Star Wars modelers. Probably due to the Fine Molds kits.
1/35th would be great but then you are getting into really
large kits. How large would a 1/35th AT-AT be?

I know a 1/35th Rebel Transport would be massive.

1/350 Rebel Blockade Runner... That one might even outsell the Refit... :cool:

And the Troops- Great Idea! I'd like a bunch of stormtroopers on review (being easy to paint doesn't put me off, either :) )

Cheers,
Tvrtko

p.s. and, of course, all the other stuff you've mentioned!

That's one thing about Star Wars. The choices are endless.

Personally, I'd like to see a line of accurate, well-sculpted, and well designed kits in the same scale for a change! Well, within reason, anyway. What I mean is, if a company is going to produce a line of vehicle kits that are similar in size such as the X-Wing, Y-Wing, A-Wing, TIE Fighters, etc., they should all be the same scale. The same with figure kits--select a scale, then stick to it!

Obviously there would be exceptions--I don't expect we'll ever see a 1/72 Death Star or Star Destroyer kit--but it shouldn't be too difficult to create a line of the "smaller" vehicles in the same scale. I think Fine Molds is on the right track. If they've managed to produce five excellent kits in the same scale, why can't anyone else?

Back on topic, put me down for an accurate Death Star in any reasonable scale, and Fine Molds versions of a TIE Advanced (Vader's) and the Millennium Falcon!

That bears repeating.

Mitch, the Tantive is commonly referred to as the Rebel Blockade Runner.

After that, a Y-Wing.

Outside RC2 and wstyrene, I still want a good grage kit of Oola in 1/6th.

I'll throw in my vote for the Blockade Runner -- maybe one more voice will be the one which finally sends it over the edge -- who knows?

Consistent scale is kinda fun, I suppose, but the FineMolds fighters are too small for my taste and for my less than perfectly steady hands. I'd gladly throw consistent scale out the window for kits in a size which allows the best presentation of each subject.

In addition to the Blockade Runner, I'd really like a Y-wing, B-wing, a better A-wing, and a Republic Gunship.

Oh yeah -

Queen Amidala's chrome SR-71, 12" long
Senator Padme's chrome flying wing, 18" wide.
Naboo starfighter in 1/48 or larger.

Not that RC2 cares what we think, or is even reading this board.

Blockade Runner 18" would be large enough
TIE Bomber
The Star Destroyer lookin' ship from " Clones "
The walkers grandpa from " Clones "
Republic Diplomatic Cruiser
Larger versions of the Sith Infiltrator & the Droid Starfighters
I'm sure there's going to be a slew of interesting new designs
from " Revenge of the Sith " too.

Oh yeah - the Clone Army gunship. That droopy-winged thing with the troop door and the missile belts and the ball turrets. That's make an awesome "with moving parts!" kit at around 1/48.

You do know that Fine Molds in Japan has been turning out dynamite after dynamite SW kit right?

So far they've done

X-Wing
TIE Fighter
TIE Interceptor
Jedi Starfighter
Slave 1

And I hear they have a Snowspeeder in the works. They're all 1/72 scale is the only dissapointment. 1/48 is really the minimum I want

Yes, we know. I have them all except the Jedi Starfighter. Just to small, and I had no interest in that one to start with.

James :)

P.S. 1/72 Sandcrawler (w/figures) would be great too.
