I am continuing my thread series.
This will discuss ONLY the vehicle in the title of the thread (in this case The Skipray Blastboat From HTTE?).
I will cover several unmade vehicles for the action figures per week, choosing them from a rotating schedule through the movies and the Expanded Universe.
I'll order it TPM, AOTC, ROTS, ANH, ESB, ROTJ, EU, and then keep going back through the order in that manner.
So here I'm only asking you if you'd buy The Skipray Blastboat From HTTE?
This ship (pictures below) could be made (inaccurately) for the $24 starfighter assortment which has successfully sold EU vehicles.
The blastboat really need only fit Luke and Mara in the cockpit, and possibly R2-D2 along with them.
This vehicle debuted in 1991's Heir To The Empire novel, and was part of the resurgence of Star Wars.
The design of the toy's features might be simple: the rear engines should rotate around the ship from landing to vertical flight mode. A firing missile on either side should suffice, and the cockpit can seat one figure in front of the other, like the Republic Gunship.
The Empire began using these things at some point during The Dark Times I take it. I think it saw use by the stormtroopers replacing the gunships because it offered more armored protection and maneuverability.
So do you want The Skipray Blastboat From HTTE made?
What other features would you want on it?
Why would you NOT want it?
What price range is fair, and what is predictable for this to be retailed for?
How do you think it would sell if produced?
Should they use this vehicle in Clone Wars?
Post your thoughts.
