    Most tragically, no destroyer! * 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.

    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.

    That was cruel of me, Jameth1971. It was borne out of desperation. Let me bring back TCSloan's original list.

    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. :lol

    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????

    There is a Samurai Stormtrooper being released in April, but that isn't on the schedule. I wonder what else might be in the pipe that they will surprise us with?

    No idea what's coming up, but I do know my living room wouldn't be big enough for a ten foot star destroyer and I might end up with a stiletto heel sticking out off my forehead....

    Not to mention, that you will have to sell the SD with your house, since it will be too big to get out of the door.

    He never updated the for sale thread of the 2' Bridge Section or the Work in Progress thread. After several years I PMd him and he said his partner on it died and the project would not be finished. A little notification would have been nice. He said it was discussed in the threads but it was not. I also searched the entire RPF and could not find anything but maybe I missed it.

    Yes on all these. The Revell Clone Wars gunship is an okay base for extensive modifications, but a more accurate AOTC and ROTS version with the bubble gunports would be amazing.

    What size does a 1:48 ATST work out to anyways? Larger than the old MPC kit? I'm sorely tempted, but can't believe how cheap these kits are compared to brick-and-mortar prices for some of the Revel ships.

    Well, if you go by the Wookiepedia height of the AT-ST, they say it's 8.6 metres. So 1/48 would make this about 17.9 cm tall, or about 7 inches tall. I'm not sure how big the old MPC kits are but there are people who say they are about 1/48 or 1/54 scale.

    That At-St is simply gorgeous. My favorite so far. The Japanese are just insane with detail and at a great price.I don't need to but I may have to get them all. :)

    Yeah, at first I wasn't overly excited by the pics on HLJ (it looked like the eyes were molded shut, and that the legs were fixed), but the description from the description from the Bandai page and the new photos they've put up are just too, too good to pass on.

    Too bad the AT-ST is a mix of the TESB, pyro ROTJ and go-mo ROTJ AT-STs, most of the details are from the go-mo ROTJ scout walker though. With a bit of work it should look as it should !

    Just got shipping confirmation from HLJ that it's on its way. Can't wait to open this thing up, as it will also be the first Bandai kit I've ever had.
