Looking over all this....

Starfighters: - Classic had the best
Super-Large vehicles - classic rules again
Mid-range - Prequels nails this one
Small vehicles - Prequels again
Beasts - I like the Classics best

What could be still made?

Overall, prequels have better choices, but Jabba's sailbarge would kick anything's butt!

I enjoyed the OT vehivles over the PT. THe PT was all alike. How many different people had speeder bikes? Clones, Anakin, Dooku.

The you had Zam and Anakins Speeders.

Of cousre 36 different versions of starfighters.

The AT-RT is an AT-ST convertable style.

The AT-TE is a great vehicle. I loved it. I hope Hasbro makes one. The OT was more original and no "duplicates" of vehicles. All were original.

I'm going with all OT vehicles. I'm pretty sure it's because I'm biased towards the OT but who the hell cares. The OT vehicles were more gritty and bare essentials whereas the PT ones were shiny and glittery with extras that weren't needed. Besides the PT vehicles are predecessors to the OT ones and we all know the prototypes alway suck.:D

I'll go OT across the board. Close in some cases, though. Like Small Vehicles for instance.

Lots of that PT stuff that I would like to see made. (Though not holding my breath. Hasbro will only get more reluctant to make ships and vehicles in the post movie era)

Sith Infiltrator
Turbo Tank
Palpy's Shuttle
Dooku's Solar Sailor

Im not a vehicle collector, but I got a few of the OT ones for my little brother, and I think he enjoyed them more than the PT or ROTS ones

OT for me.

And the ones I still want most are the AT TE and whatever those tie fighters at the end of ROTS are. Not sure the name but the looked like prototype ties.

Tycho doing a thread involving a list?!?! That's odd :p

Anywho, I think I'll step to the OT side of the line. I think it's just bias, though. The PT stuff has some sweet features and really good playability, but I'd take one of those pathetically out of scale TIE Fighters over Anakin's Starfighter any day.

I'm going to have to say the OT. Its not as if I think the PT's vehicles were bad, infact I think they are great the thing is the PT stuff is reverse engineered from the OT. The OT had an 'open canvas' where they could make and create whatever they wanted. The PT was bound by the OT and as the the series moved things needed to move closer to what we saw in IV-VI.

I favor the OT ships. MCQuarrie concept art is incredible! Sure the PT has some outstanding ships as well, if only Hasbro had the balls to make some of the bigger ones.

Before ROTS, I would have said OT hands down. But after seeing the Jedi Starfighters in action, they have taken my heart and are my favorite vehicle of all time. The shape kind of reminds me of a manta ray, and I like that they come in all sorts of colors.

OT without a doubt! There is nothing better than the Tie Fighters and Y- Wings

OT had better vehicles released...but PT has too many unmade gems... It's sad that they're done....

All I want is a AT-TE!!!!

and a cloud car....

and a sith interceptor.....

Why is that too much to ask for????!!!!!

(oh and a tank droid, and a turbo tank)

((and maybe an AT-AP))

I have to say OT, nothing like Y Wings and B Wings. :D

I'd have to give the nod to the Prequels having the better ships then the OTC. While the X-Wing and TIE Fighters were cool ships, my favorite is still the Sith Inflitrator. Even though the ship is seen for about ten seconds of screen time this ship kicks *ss.
I really hope we see a plastic version of this soon. I mean they have the line till what 2018 ?????

I'd say the OT ships. I have all the OT items except for the Imperial Shuttle and the Sandcrawler. I only bought the JFS1, N1, droid fighters, Sebulba's pod, Queen's ship, ARC-170, and Zam's speeder. Nothing else really appealed to me.
