    Most tragically, no destroyer! Damn you, Bandai, you can't just whip that thing out, parade it around, and then laugh and point at us - this is just like summer camp all over again!

    Y-wing and larger scale XW do sound intriguing though.

    Thanks robn1 for correcting the link.

    No news past March. I wonder if it means they will wait for Ep VII to release and then capitalize on the new ships or continue with their exciting line. You have to admit, this is better than the "one release a year policy" that FineMolds had. But I too am hopefull that they will keep on releasing new kits continually, and of course not just the stuff that has already been released several times previously by different companies. Perhaps they will release more information on upcoming toy and model shows. Here's hoping.

    Agreed. That is the only thing I'm interested in.

    I'm guessing they're waiting until closer to ep VII to release the falcon, and when they do it will have both dishes to choose from, considering they gave optional parts for the X-wing. I'm actually holding off on getting any falcon model because I'm waiting to see what Bandai does, really hoping they give us a 1/72 scale.

    I hope that releasing the AT-ST in 1/48 means we may eventually get a At-AT also in 1/48.

    The XW is, I presume, the one they showed off this past year with the buttons on the base of the stand. Like the scale better than the 1:72, but can't say I care much about the electronics. YW and the ATST might be nice, depending - the ATST that MPC put out was pretty bad, and the YW from FM seems rather elusive. But, yeah, I am quite surprised they have not announced an ISD in some scale - the MPC is terrible to a legendary degree, and Hasbro half-heartedly produced a couple of toys based on the same mold. The closest thing to a decent looking, official ISD ever produced is the new Disney diecast toy. For such a critically important, iconic ship that's just sad.

    CJ. You want a 10-foot injection plastic Star Destroyer? Me too mate but it ain't happening.

    No worries, I just thought I came upon a wonderful announcement and was wondering what those numbers translated into inches.


    As far as a 10 ft Star Destroyer I have the bridge for it. Korbanth estimated the full ship would be 9 to 12 feet as the bridge was bigger than the bridge on the eight footer. Too bad that project is no longer happening.

    I know it can be done. Everyone said the Ark could not be done and Phillip is close to finishing it.

    True, but considering they are putting out all this stuff in such a short time, it looks promising that they will release more...if sales are good. Which I assume are, considering all the interest I see on a few forums. But it would be nice to get some sort of confirmation that they are working on the MF and SD.

    On another note...Gotta love the box art. It would be a shame to throw out the box that the model came in after it's built.

    But it would be just plain awesome. Both to build and to display. Imagine a lighted 10' SD hanging from a high ceiling in the dark.

    Oh sure it can be done, no great engineering barriers - just don't expect it from Bandai, because they're not insane.

    It'd take one of us nutters to do something like that. I didn't realise Korbanth had ever talked about the full ship. Yikes!

    Yeah, That's the only reason I bought the bridge set. Although I am happy I did because it's an awesome piece and I'm glad it has not sold.

    He was planning on doing it in stages but it never happened. Something about the death of the other person working on it????
