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 Senator Amidala's Flying Wing From AOTC).
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 Senator Amidala's Flying Wing From AOTC?
This ship would be big when assembled, but I can imagine it being packed in a box the size of the Naboo Queen's Royal Starship. You add the wings on after you open the box.
The interior would be very similar to the Naboo Royal Starship, but the boarding ramp would come down in the back. Two astromech stations might hold droids inside. The ship could have the astrodroid elevator as a play feature, so long as it's disguised.
The ship might be very flat and doesn't have to feature the slide-out section so there are two levels, above and below the flight seats. With the extended wings, I fear that could make the already wide ship unmanageable (but feel free to add your thoughts). The cockpit seating would be about the same, but be deep enough in the ship for a non-softgoods, non-SA Corde figure to stand inside the cruiser. Joined by standing Naboo Royal Guards and Security Officers and soldiers and handmaidens.
The wings might "launch off" by springs to simulate the explosion. The N-1 fighters should definitely be re-released at the same time this is sold, as well as re-releases for Padme Pilot and Captain Typho Pilot, and Typho's green astromech.
The ship does not need electronics, but the explosion sound could be cool with that "stormtrooper scream voice-track" they've been using since ANH and the guy took a dive in the Death Star when Luke shot him.
There will be no "EU craft" that somehow launches out of the larger ship.
This vehicle was destroyed before the Clone Wars, so there will be no more of it to be seen.
Corde might be an exclusive figure added into this box to help sales.
Do you want this made?
What pricepoint do you see it being issued at?
How do you think it would sell if produced?
