Same question as last year's topic. What are your hopes for vehicles and other things for 2011?

Vehicles-As far as vehicles go, there isn't too much for me. I don't forsee Hasbro making much of anything from the Original Trilogy for vehicles. There aren't that many left and those that are, Hasbro deems non-aggresive and therefore not interesting. Still, I would like to see an ESB version of the redone Slave 1. Also, Luke's landspeeder (Saga version) re-released since I missed it the first time. I would like to see a new Y-Wing that was discussed and a re-release of the X-Wing. Hopefully both the Y-Wing and X-Wing will be unreleased versions; maybe Red 6 plus a redone Porkins for the X-Wing and Gold 5 fand Pops for the Y-Wing.

Battlepacks/multi-packs-This is where I hope Hasbro blesses us OT fans. This is where we should get the 2nd Scanning trooper. I would like to see 1, maybe two collector oriented BP's and maybe some straight up army builder BP's for the OT. I would also like to see a Deluxe BP like the Rise of Boba Fett for the OT. Maybe we can get the ESB version of the Slave 1 and the mustachioed Bespin Guard (to recreate the Vintage version) in a set like this.

Any thoughts?

Moved this here.  It seems more appropriate since vehicles have only been offered in Vintage Collection packaging as part of an exclusive promotion.

As for other vehicles?

LUKE'S LANDSPEEDER - We got an awesome resculpt of the landspeeder back in the Saga days but it was a TRU exclusive.  I'd like to see this one get considered for re-release.  And considering what Hasbro is doing with paint and deco these days I would LOVE to see how they might do a wind-blasted landspeeder.



IMPERIAL TROOP TRANSPORTER - It's a complete throwback to the Kenner days, but this would be a great offering to do in Vintage Collection packaging.  Especially after Dark Horse comics featured it in a Boba Fett one-off title.





DC0052 SPEEDER - This speeder got some play in REVENGE OF THE SITH.  And considering it got used by 2 main characters it seems like it could have some kid appeal.





WEDGE ANTILLES SNOW SPEEDER - After getting the amazing new Snow Speeder which is specific to Luke Skywalker, a version in Rogue 3 markings would be very welcome.





More to come....

I second the Rogue 3 Snowspeeder. Throw in the Wedge;Snowspeeder and we'll call it good.

After getting both Battle over Endor sets I am hoping for more of these in the future (sooner rather than later). I would like them to do this for the Battle of Yavin. They can do two sets just like before (but hey, I will gladly get three or four sets if offered). They can do a Red Squadron set and a Gold Squadron set. It would be super easy since all pilots wore the same flight suit in ANH. Give us Tiree, Pops, Pop's astromech, and another TIE Pilot (Vader's wingman #1) for set 1 and Theron Nett, Lt. Naytan (or a redone Porkins) an astromech (maybe Porkin's) and TIE Pilot (vader's other wingman) for set 2.
