For those of you unfamiliar with the Collector's Fleet, this was a series of (sadly) only three Star Wars capital ships in a scale even larger than the Action Fleet from Galoob. It was more along the lines of Playmates' Star Trek ships, large, electronic, with lights, sounds, and a base. Hasbro attempted the same but as has always been their bane, the electronics were substandard. While Playmates' ships produced television accurate sound effects when their buttons were depressed, Hasbro's left you wanting. The raspy sounds that passed for authentic on the Star Wars Collector's Fleet were sadly typical of Hasbro when it comes to electronics, yet the sculpts were incredible. I have all three (Star Destroyer, Rebel Blocade Runner (Tantive IV), and Super Star Destroyer (Executor). The real appeal is that they are great display pieces. And you can set the switch on them for no lights or sound, lights and sound, or just lights when the buttons are pressed. And when the rear engines light up (especially on the multitude of engines on the Tantive IV) these guys look great.
In a way, the Collector's Fleet was a little ahead of its time as the collector market was not as strong as it is today, and it lost a lot of appeal due to the poor sound effects. But with better sounds the existing fleet could be rereleased to great success (considering the Super Star Destroyer was almost impossible to find). A Death Star was supposedly going to be the next addition, but the line died an early death and we got no more. Who is with me on a rerelease and EXPANSION of this line? I'd love a Collector's Fleet Republic Cruiser, Trade Federation Battle Ship, Rebel Frigate, Rebel Cruiser, Mon Calimari Flagship, Death Star, and Millenium Falcon!
