I am continuing my new thread series.
This will discuss ONLY the vehicle in the title of the thread (in this case the Radiant VII Republic Cruiser from The Phantom Menace).
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 the Radiant VII Republic Cruiser from The Phantom Menace?
I envision this vehicle for the $100 price range possibly. At least it should be. This ship doesn't need to be too elaborate and they can make it way underscale.
However, the bridge should hold 4 figures, Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, and 2 Republic Officers, or whomever one sees fit. The cockpit doesn't need to be any larger than the BMF's though.
This vehicle could come with electronics and the engines in the back might light up and make noise, and a landing ramp might come down like the BMF's does.
The "salon pod" underneath the cockpit should hold 4 or more figures and maybe have a strategy table like Admiral Yularen comes with for Clone Wars.
Moreover, it could detach as an escape vehicle.
Do you want it made? How about for a $70 price range if Hasbro cuts out the electronics?
What other features would you want on it?
Why would you NOT want it?
How do you think it would sell if produced?
This vehicle was again seen in Clone Wars. So kids might recognize it with future appearances.
Is it cool enough that you want to see the animated series feature it more?
