    Didn't they try this once back in 1998? Didn't seem to do well at all, even though I still really like the concept Snowspeeder.

    I don't actually believe that McQuarrie was responsible for many of the vehicle designs. I think that was more Joe Johnston's department.

    I really love most of the concepts for the ESB Scout Walker. Those would be awesome as toys.

    While we're at it, what about beasts? I would love to get a concept Jabba, maybe even a figure of the human "stand-in" for Jabba from ANH. He's be a pretty cool action figure.

    Then there's the rat-like early TaunTauns or the Ewok's beast of burden.

    As loathe as I am to suggest a re-release of stuff that went on clearance, it might be a good idea. They should probably re-release the concept Maul, Obi-Wan, and Qui-Gon from a few years ago, too.

    Concept TaunTaun would be sweet. What about the Rancor with the tentacles? Or the little furball Ewoks? Or "extremely elegant" Lando?
    That's my jacket!

    If it's a 3 3/4" toy and has the Star Wars logo attached, I'm in.

    The EU Airspeeder w/ pilot they did back in the day was a McQuarrie design. I think its a neat toy and if they re-released it under the McQ Signature Series line it would probably sell.

    Yeah but why do that when you can get the set for $10 shipped? I know, because I just did this with the Airspeeder and speeder bike sets. Just need the Hoth one and I'm good on those.

    Galoob did these with the Action Fleet. I never bought them as I wasn't into AF but I always thought they were really cool looking. I was a big fan of the Snowspeeder/Cloud Car that Hasbro put out in the POTJ line. I know these sold very poorly but I think with a good repaint and repackaged under the McQuarrie subline these could do better. Who wouldn't want a McQuarrie AT-AT or TIE Fighter or X-Wing to go with them?

    I actually like this idea more. There were some really awesome concept Jabbas. One really did look like Sydney Greenstreet, complete with fez hat.

    That's funny about the stand-in Jabba, just a few days ago I was joking about how there should be a PERFECTLY movie-accurate Jabba complete with the cutout back and all them dudes inside with the TVs etc- kinda like my idea to include little sticks with the new 'Deuce to make him exactly "out of shot" accurate

    Iso & Baws

    That'd be F-ing SWEET
    Something about him reminds me of my older brother, Rex.

    I really don't think the vechiles would do well, since most vechiles that are out now are shelf warmers (at least in my area) i don't think even adding concept or any artists name would help the sells of these things, even though i thought the concept cloud car and speeder were cool toys they where clearence fodder within a few monthes and still sat on the shelves around here, but i think a concept Jabba would be a cool toy, hell i think a figure of any Jabba would be cool to have out again.

    Honestly, I don't get why someone would prefer a guy in a helmet with little or no back story over a EU character, and if this guy in a helmet does have a backstory it's EU!!!!
