I am continuing my 3 3/4" vehicle thread series.
This will discuss ONLY the vehicle in the title of the thread (in this case the Battle Droid Carrier Skiff Vehicle From TPM). [PICTURE BELOW]
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 Battle Droid Carrier Skiff Vehicle From TPM?
I can see retailers trying to hock this for the $70 price range, but it need not be. Couldn't $50 be sufficient for a decent return if Hasbro decided to invest in the tooling for this? It can be way off scale but function well-enough to hold maybe 10 stored battle droids and host a cockpit for 2 figures (pilot and co-pilot).
I think the ship could fire missiles from its weapons, maybe 2 of them to make this more fun for kids but that should be about it.
Do you want this made?
How do you think it would sell if produced?
It's easily possible that this craft could appear in The Clone Wars. Do you want to see it there, as it would aide in kids identifying it and making it a more viable product proposal for the Separatist Army?
NOTE: looking at this craft, if Hasbro made the MTT, they could use the same tooling for its droid carrier rack and offer it here, getting half this vehicle done from the get-go.
