View Full Version : How many ships is enough...?

04-12-2002, 10:19 AM
I've gotten the Jedi Starfighter and the Slave I from the Saga line and I love them both. For as much as I would like to get Zam's speeder, I think it would be excessive- not to mention I'm already lacking space! I am definitely passing on the remaining ships from AOTC... unless I see them on a huge clearance. I think the ships are the best things going in this line so far!

You can see my reviews for both ships in the "REVIEWS" section.

Bring on the ships. My motto is "buy now, worry about space later"

04-12-2002, 01:42 PM
Good Motto...You'll never know when you'll find the ships again.On sale one day,gone the next.

Ships really do take up space quick. Most of my ships are currently in boxes, and I have no plans to do anything with them soon, due to lack of space. The Jedi Starfighter is rather small, so that's out on a shelf. But with the big ships, and numerous fighters, they take up a lot of room, real fast.

I'll get the speeders though, because they're small, and fit on shelves. There not in the same class as fighters, falcon Royal, etc., IMO. I have the room for speeders.

unless my finacial situatution changes anytime soon i'll only be getting slave I and zam's speeder if i see it for cheap enough.
i don't have any desire to get anything else yet as i have yet to see the movie and haven't developed any attachments to the vehicles yet

Ships will probably be a no go for me this time around. I had planned to buy the Slave 1; but with my current money situation it would be at the expensive of almost everything else. Especially since I plan to buy the soundtrack and novelization also. If I buy any vehicle at all, it will be something small like Anakin's Speeder. And that's only if I can't find too many of the second wave of figures.

Ooooh, i plan on buying the speeders and the lovely new Slave-1 but I'm not buying the crapola republic gunship and i may not buy the jedi starfighter. I have to see one in person before I decide on that. Ships are cool. If they cut out the Anakin and Obi resculpts and throw out more vehicles instead that'll be cool. Dooku's ship, Some more small speeders from both the OT and the prequels. I agree about the space issues but I always make room for the speeders. Smaller vehicles released regularly supplemented by the occasional large vehicle would suit me nicely. Smaller vehicles are more even;ly distributed whereas the larger ones are destined to be store exclusives. BOOOOOOOO!!! store exclusives are bad. :(

. . . Still waiting for my TIE BOMBER with abated breath.

Egads, I too, seem to have WAY too many vehicles. It's getting ridiculous.

POTF2 Landspeeder
Electronic Snowspeeder
Tie Fighter
Vader's Tie Fighter
Tie Interceptor
Flash Speeder
Naboo Fighter

Despite all this --- I'd move heaven and earth to get me a SANDCRAWLER if Hasbro would just hear my prayers and reissue it.

Curiously, JEDIpartnr, the ONLY ship from ATOC I'm currently planning to get is Zam's Speeder. I just love the color and design. I'm hoping it's as cool in hand as it is in the photos. I'm already "over" Zam though, so this little puppy just might wind up in the hand of a Duro.

I don't think I'll be getting any ships either........
Maybe after I buy the figures.
My main priority right now is to get the figs then the vehicles.
I will probably just buy the Big $39.99 ship. (I forgot the name, I think it is the Republic ship) :D

Fambaa and the Falumpaset are creatures! Cheater!


04-12-2002, 07:17 PM
Forgot about the 12" Speeder Bike and 12" Sith Speeder. Talk about space hogs!

04-12-2002, 07:20 PM
They might be creatures but they are big enough to cause a headache.

I have one room for my stuff that is also my bedroom. It's about eight feet by nine feet in size and only three walls are usable. One is taken up by the bed so i have two walls with a shelving unit against then that has a corner unit to utilise dead space. Plus I have metal bars across the ceiling to hang ships from. Aside from the hundreds of figures I've acrued I have this little lot to home. Up to this point I've managed but I've discovered that I have no room for any more than the first waves of AOTC stuff this year. After that it's big decision time. To keep or to get shut of stuff. All this is loose and displayed right now. I open everything and never keep boxes. Don't ask how many figures I've got because I buy in multiples alot of the time so I couldn't begin to count up.
These are just the ships and vehicles and beasts:

Millenium falcon
Y-wing x2
FX x-wing
Luke's landspeeder
Swoop bike
Mauls speeder

There is never enough ships...the more the better

04-13-2002, 01:15 PM
If anything is gonna be hard to find in this new line it's probably going to be some of the ships so if you pass up on them just be aware you might pay more later. I plan on getting 2 of Slave 1 so I can open one and I doubt if I am the only collector planning this.

04-13-2002, 05:37 PM
I hope to see LOTS of electronic vehicles. I never pass up an electronic vehicle because they are really sweeeeeeet. And that Republic Gunship better be electronic and well distributed because i really want two.
