I hope they do multiple scale versions of the X-wing, TIE Fighter, Millennium Falcon, Slave One and Luke's Landspeeder. Those are all ships that don't get enough attention when a new vehicle line is created.This is so incredibly exciting! I don’t think Jazwares has produced any Star Wars merchandise in quite a while (last I can see are some plushies from the TFA / Rogue One years), so their booth has to be about this new line.
Without setting expectations too high (lol), what are you all most excited to see about this line? For me it’s definitely the Mandalorian and Prequel-era ships and micro figures.
Here's hoping! I'm hanging out for both possibilities.From a business standpoint it makes a lot of sense the direction they are going with this initial offering. As whilst the initial minis are all scaled to the larger ships, they could easily try a wave of traditional micro machines ships to expand on them if they are well received.
And once the core offering is up, they could try a couple of scaled down capital ships to see how they hit.
I only just got the Tantive and Star Destroyer Kenner Collector Fleet ships; and they are really nice pieces! Would love a Venator at this scale, and a Mon colamari cruiser - I believe there was actually a prototype for one, it's a shame it never released.I'm truly happy to see, from the early pics, that they will be doing ships never done before. Or at least rarely done before.
However for capital ships I wish someone would do something like the Kenner Collector Fleet electronic ships from the 90s. That or like Diamond Selects Star Trek ships line. Big ships, at least 10" long with lights and sounds, and a stand.
Thank you, yes I have looked at that ship on ebay before; but the prices!! hahaha^ Yes, we definately need a continuation of that capital ship scale. As for a Republic Venator, you could get the Revell release that first came out in 2005.
The Halo line of toys that Jazwares makes is pretty great and solid quality plastic, I would assume these will be as wellThese look very promising! $45 seems a bit steep, so I may just pick up whatever ships that weren't made in Action Fleet to fill in the gaps (I can only have so many versions of the Falcon, X-wing etc). I hope these don't feel cheaply made either and are firm plastic like the Revell kits. When TLJ came out, they came out with Poe's X-wing, Kylo Ren's Tie, a ski speeder? and I think 1 other vehicle (I'm blanking on the actual name for that line, I'm at work and can't look them up). They came with mini-figures but to me those felt real flimsy and cheap.
From Target's website on the Falcon:
Estimated ship dimensions: 5.5 inches length x 12 inches width x 9 inches height
Mini-figures are 1 inch.
