    Would You Buy Hondo Ohnaka's Rapier-1 Starflare Class Weequay Ship From Clone Wars?

    I am continuing my thread series.

    This will discuss ONLY the vehicle in the title of the thread (in this case Hondo Ohnaka's Rapier-1 Starflare Class Weequay Ship From Clone Wars).

    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 Hondo Ohnaka's Rapier-1 Starflare Class Weequay Ship From Clone Wars?

    This ship (pictures below) could be made for the $24 starfighter assortment which has successfully sold EU vehicles.

    This flying saucer-shaped starfighter / freighter has twin cockpits and should one figure in each, "top-loading the figure." The craft does not need its boarding ramps, as this could be produced as a low-cost EU vehicle.

    For more information, check the wikipedia page:

    Naturally, the toy does need its maneuvering / lightspeed thrusters on the rear underside, and it could feature at least 2 firing missiles for the kids to be attracted with.

    It would be great to have another non-aligned vehicle from Clone Wars, like Cad Bane's Xanadu Blood - however this Weequay Pirate Ship would be an all-new mold, not a repaint. But it would be a ship you could fleet-build with, as Hondo had more than 1 at his disposal, the Rapier-One just being his personal ship's name.

    Count Dooku also flew one of these when he escaped Hondo's pirates during The Clone Wars first season.

    Hasbro should make one more figure of one of Hondo Ohnaka's Weequay Pirates to also crew this vehicle.

    So do you Hondo Ohnaka's Rapier-1 Starflare Class Weequay Ship From Clone Wars made?

    What other features would you want on it?

    Why would you NOT want it?

    How do you think it would sell if produced?

    I'll pass on this. If it was his tank, I would vote yes. But a ship that resembles a UFO, no thanks.
    Nowhere in your incoherent ramblings did you come anywhere close to the answer. Thanks to you, everyone in this room is now stupider having heard you. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul. -Billy Madison-

    just get an old roomba and remove the insides and you've got this ship. i'd vote no.

    while i'm not a pilot, i would think this ship would be even more difficult to fly than slave 1 and nearly impossible to land (gracefully) manually.

    Nope, I don't collect the animated characters and so I'd have no one to put in this ship. It's a cool design but it wouldn't fit with the rest of my collection.

    This is another case of a ship that would have been perfect for the titanium line, but probably wouldn't sell well enough for the regular line. I'm leaning towards not buying it if it were made.

    I'm a no on this one, but I would be interested in the WLO-5 speeder tank that Hondo uses. The Lego one looked really cool and I think it would be great in the line. Tycho, if you decide to include that tank, you can mark me down as a yes right now.
