I am continuing my vehicle poll thread series.
This will discuss ONLY the vehicle in the title of the thread (in this case the Gian Speeder 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 Gian Speeder from The Phantom Menace?
I envision this vehicle for the $25 price range, though it should be much cheaper - really. For $25 maybe it could come with the harder to find Naboo Royal Guard - perhaps as a white or black ethnic variation (the current one looks possibly like a Hispanic actor, though "he's really from Naboo").
This ship doesn't need to be too elaborate and it's pretty small, so they should be able to make it to scale. The Action Fleet Collection made one as part of a playset previously.
However, the cockpit should hold 2 figures and maybe the cannons would fire a plastic missile from either side. Other than that, floatie wheels like Luke's landspeeder or the Flash Speeder would work here. I like the grey or better-yet chrome finish (which Hasbro can hopefully improve upon).
People making Coruscant dioramas could use this vehicle there as well.
Do you want this speeder 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 this vehicle be seen in Clone Wars? (I don't see why not?) It's just a speeder and a cool-looking one at that.
