I remember a thread about this. But I cannot remember where it was nor when it was done. So, SSG staff, if you find it and move it here feel free to delete this post. I am not a number monger.

On to the interesting stuff. I have been thinking long and hard about what 12" vehicles could be done. And here is what I came up with:

BATTLE DROID/STAP - For some unknown reason, this is the one I would most like to see.

BATTLE DROID/TRADE FEDERATION TANK - What the heck.

C-3PO/LUKE'S LANDSPEEDER. We have enough Lukes and a well articulated C-3PO is in dire need of being made

COUNT DOOKU/SPEEDER - I thought it looked cool.

ANAKIN/SWOOP - I am sure it is on the way.

AURRA SING/SWOOP - 'nuff said

SWOOP TROOPER/SWOOP - Can never have too many swoops. They are cool.

T.I.E FIGHTER PILOT/T.I.E. FIGHTER - Yeah I know it would be big and expensive. But I would own it. Maybe a couple of 'em.

X-WING PILOT/X-WING - Same thing.

NABOO STARFIGHTER PILOT/NABOO STARFIGHTER - Same thing. Those big Wal-Mart displays would have been about the right size

BOBA FETT/SLAVE 1 - Same thing...only bigger.

BESPIN TWIN POD CLOUD CAR PILOT/CLOUD CAR - What the heck.

POD RACERS/PODS - I don't care for these myself...just something for the pod racer fans.

I didn't bother to mention the ones that I am sure will come out like ENDOR LEIA/SPEEDER.

I would buy ANY vehicle that Hasbro made for 12" even if they made a Death Star playset the size of a house.

i think the best chance for a 12 inch scale vehicle would be either the snow speeder or land speeder.

i personally would love a 12 inch scale snowspeeder.:)
they could get the scale pretty close to the proper size, and probably have a price of about $150.

this is the kind of stuff a useful fan club would be selling.

I think Anakin's and Zam's Speeder is the only choice right now for Hasbro. But they will not do it true to scale (85 cm and 1.10 m large) I don't mind. Just the figures have to fit in.

It's not a vehicle, but what about a 12" Scale Eopiee and Shmi Skywalker with Kitster?

That'd make the Tatoooine crew complete.


Since I brought up beasts:

12" wounded Padme and Nexu

Bantha and Tusken keeps getting rumored.

Geonosian and Picador (crocodile thing)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oh heck - we were on vehicles and I didn't see:

Obi-Wan and Jedi Starfighter! "with Jedi Cloak finally..."

I too would like to see all the vehicles Darth Cruel listed. I think the smaller ones are possible, as is a snowspeeder derek listed and the E2 airspeeders that N-2PF listed.

Tycho - Some of those beasts ARE vehicles for the characters so they count. And if we count those beasts it wouldn't be PC to not include the others.

Oohhh, a Bantha and Tuskin would be awesome! I too would love to see a 12" scale vehicle. Tie Fighter or Snow Speeder would be my top 2 choices. They would look great hanging from my ceiling.

There is one from AMT Ertl. 1:6 Model Kit, that sizes perfect.

Okay this might be impossible dream. But really who wants hasbro to make a 12 inch skiff? It could come with Nikto 12 inch or the Lando Skiff figure....

Me!

There are so many possibilities for ships, creatures and vehicles for the 12in line.

Can you imagine a 12in scale version of these:

x-wing
tie fighter
luke's landspeeder
AT-ST
Bantha
y-wing
Darth Vader's tie
tie interceptor

to name just a few......

One can only hope.

I would love to see at least 1 1/6th scale SW vehicle before this line comes to an end.

This guy has made a 1/6th scale Tie Interceptor, AT-ST, Landspeeder and Anakin's Pod Racer.

I want the AT-ST and Tie Interceptor! Are you listening Hasbro?

jrviking07, FAO Schwarz in San Francisco has a custom 12" scale Falcon with Han and Chewie and I think Luke and Leia in the cockpit. It looked sweeeeet! I inquired but they said they wouldn't part with it.:cry:

Here it is (attachment). My friend took this shot. You can only really see Han, but Luke 12" is also in there, as is the Applause vinyl Leia Endor.

I'd love to have this thing. It is HUGE though!

Sorry to be one of those annoying correcting people Tycho, but that would be, Geonosian Picador and Orray. :)

MTFBWY and HH!!

I like the idea of a Battle Droid w/ STAP (though I'd want the droid to fully transform), 3PO w/ Luke's landspeeder, Anakin w/ swoop, Anakin w/ "hot rod" speeder, and especially the idea of a Snowspeeder w Hoth pilot Luke (it's a significantly different outfit) w/ grappling line launcher, lightsaber and grenade.

I posted this in the 1/6th scale skiff thread but think it's worth posting again. This guy has made a couple 1/6th scale vehicles: AT-ST and Tie Intercepter are the better ones.

A SLAVE 1 FOR JANGO AND ONE FOR BOBA WOULD BE AWESOME

How about an Escape Pod? Now, that wouldn't have to be too big.

A Landspeeder could be awesome --- but dang! It'd be pretty HUGE!

I'd have to say Kaminoan w/aiwhas.
