    I mean, the Y-wing is cool and everything, but I think the X-wing and T.I.E. fighter/interceptor/bomber should take precedence, n'est pas?

    And what about the Rebel Blockade Runner?

    AT-ST?

    I'd also love to see a studio-scale Sandcrawler (RC.. RC.. :D ) and a 1/12 - 1/8 (whatever scale was parked outside Old Ben's hut) land speeder hovering over an electromagnetic base. :love

    And how about Luke's T-16 or the Shuttle Tyridium? The Cloud City twin-pod car?

    A SPEEDER BIKE.........

    Somebody please stop me. :p

    ********EDIT********

    Ok, so nobody stopped me. :lol

    Ok, here's the tally so far, in order of mention, top 5 in GREEN BOLD:
    • X-wing fighter - 6
    • T.I.E. fighter - 5
    • Vader's T.I.E. fighter - 11
    • T.I.E. Interceptor - 4
    • T.I.E. bomber - 3
    • Rebel Blockade Runner - 3
    • AT-ST ROTJ - 3
    • Sandcrawler - 3
    • Shuttle Tyridium - 7
    • Luke's T-16 - 1
    • The Cloud City twin-pod car - 3
    • Speeder bike - 3
    • Land speeder - 3
    • Death Star - 3
    • Star Destroyer - 7
    • Slave 1 ESB - 4
    • Death Star ROTJ -2
    • Republic gunship AOTC - 2
    • Escape pod - 1
    • Executor/Super Star Destroyer - 3
    • Sail barge - 2
    • Sand skiff - 1
    • Republic star destroyer -1
    • A-wing - 2
    • B-wing - 2
    • AT-ST ESB - 1
    • Amidala Royal Starship - 1
    • Jedi fighter ROTS - 1
    I'll update the list every day as long as people post.

    Hey, MR: market research on the house. :D

    The y-wing is cool, though. :)

    If I had the disposable income, I would get it... but I have to pick and choose my battles. :)

    I'm waiting on the Falcon. :D

    I agree. I feel it was an odd choice to have the y-wing take precedence over other vehicles such as the x-wing and tie fighter. I can see the snowspeeder, as they also released the At-At with it, but the y-wing? Seems like an odd choice considering what else is out there.

    I personally want to see the imperial shuttle. To me that's just one of the greatest most underrated vehicle in the history of SW. EVeryone always says they want an x-wing, or tie fighter, or even a speeder, but why not the shuttle? Sure it will be incredibly expensive, but so was the At-At and people bought that.

    I reckon MR don't see the X-Wing or TIE fighter as a priority, as Icons did 'em a few years back, and they're going to concentrate on vehicles that Icons didn't get around to, first... :unsure

    I think a SS Millenium Falcon is looonng overdue... and Vader's TIE would be hella cool :love

    I just thought of something.......

    Make Vader's Tie and a regualr Tie Fighter with bases (NOT like the Y-Wing base) that connect together to form Vader's wing men from ANH. Now that would rock..

    If you are seeing this MR, I want a commision. :love ;)

    Without question the studio scale ship I await most eagerly is the Rebel Blockade Runner. After that, I suppose the Falcon, ANH Tie and X-Wing. I'd love to see a Star Destroyer, but that's a little large...it would have to be non-studio scale to sell widely I suspect.

    1. Falcon
    2. ANH Vader TIE
    3. Landspeeder
    4. Scout Trooper on Speeder Bike
    5. Imperial Shuttle

    I'm sure I read that MR couldn't release their Vader TIE this year because Code 3 were already going to release theirs and I guess it would have been too competitive. :(

    I can understand why they're not doing the X-Wing and TIE Fighter at the moment (due to the ICONS versions, not to mention fan produced kits). However, I really hope they do release them in the future.

    There's an old show biz saying, "Always leave them wanting more". I figure that's what MR is doing with the studio scale. If they throw the top 3 or top 5 desired replicas out there first, the rest of the line will get ingored... yesterday's news. So they hold some big hitters back. That way, everytime MR annoinces that a new Studio Scale is about to release everyone still gets excited because it might be one of the biggies. So they'll toss the Y-wing out there and then follow it up with the Millennium Falcon. Then we'll see two or there Y-wing equivalents like a TIE Bomber, and they we'll get another biggie like Luke's Red-Five X-Wing or Vader's TIE Advanced. I'll be surprised if I'm wrong about this.


    Personally, I won't be buying the Studio Scale kits. With the AT-AT, Snow Speeder, and Y-wing as bench marks it's pretty clear that this line is in a price range I don't care to venture into. Any of them that I would be interested in owning are already represented by impressive model kits (both licensed and otherwise), and given how much I enjoy building kits I would save a ton of money and do them myself. Just my personal preferrence.

    Yea - that makes some sense.

    I love the Y-Wing and I'm glad to see they're doing it. I don't know if I have enough room in my house for it...but we'll see. I will definitely be getting the Falcon.

    I want to add Slave 1 to the list, but only if they would make it Studio Scale. With all the Fett fans out there I would think it would sell like hot cakes :love .

    Millenium Falcon
    Star Destroyer
    X-Wing

    In that order. Anything else, I would run out of room.

    As much as I would love to see the capital ships (ISD, Mon Cal, Nebulon-B, Blockade Runner [ROTS or ANH version? :p :lol ] ), I have a feeling those are a little out of the realm of possibility. And even if they did, they'd have to scale them down a lot, which would just lead to complaints of "It's not 'Studio Scale'.". MR can't win that fight.

    Death Star... lol.... even less likely.

    There are the "that's neat, if I had endless income and infinite space" ones, and then the "oh I gotta buy that, I don't care what I have to do" ones.

    Gotta buy:
    Falcon
    TIE Fighter
    Imperial Shuttle

    Would be cool to see made, but I would only buy dependent on price/availability of those listed above:
    Sandcrawler
    TIE Advanced
    Queen's Starship (TPM)
    Jedi Fighter (ROTS)
    A-Wing
    B-Wing
    Jabba's Sail Barge

    I actually have little interest in an X-Wing for some reason. Maybe because it's just so... obvious a choice; and been made dozens of times before in different formats. I'd rather see other stuff first, since we only seem to get 1-2 of these a year at best.

    I didn't know there was a studio model of the Republic Star Destroyer. Wasn't that purely CG?

    1st on my pie-in-the-sky list would be Imperial Star Destroyer, SS, ESB model (rather than the little ANH 3-footer that MR would be more likely to do), and fully lit.

    2nd would the a SS Executor, fully lit, with matching scale ISD.

    At this point, I would have to buy a multi-story house with high vaulted ceilings, so I could hang the Star Destoryers from the ceiling with the Executor scaled ships high above (and preferably at eye level from a 2nd or 3rd story overlooking loft), and the ESB SD lower, so that when viewed from below it would give a sense of forced perspective...

    Guess I should go pick up some lottery tickets. :lol

    I'd love to see the:

    1) X-wing
    2) B-wing (I don't know why, but I've always loved this one)
    3) Tie Interceptor

    I'm not sure that the Star Destroyer would lend itself well to MR's Studio Scale line. In order to do the model justice detail wise, it would have to be HUGE.. Anything less than that would take away from it, imo.

    ...and can you imagine the price point of doing a 5ft Star Destroyer?

    From the models that definitely are in a realistic size range to be released as SS models, my favorites would be:

    X-Wing
    B-Wing (although this one surely will never be released :( )
    Slave-1 (ESB)

    Seeing those with pilots and working engine lights would be great :love

    From the models that due to its size are completely out of range to be released as SS (maybe scaled down?.) the ones I like the most are:

    Star Destroyer (ESB)
    Home 1

    Of cause there are a lot of other models I would like to see, but since every vote counts, I wanted to keep the list as short as possible ;)

    I have seen no official Falcon announcement. The product plan for 2006 from MR didn't include it. That means either it's not coming in 2006 or they haven't announced it yet. I'd put it on the list Gabe.

    Gabe,
    Are you attempting to create your own ILM Archive? :p

    For the record, I think MR is choosing the Y-Wing over the X-Wing and Tie because Icons already made them. It seemed to work the same way with the light sabers.

    Any way, here's my list:

    1. Blockade Runner (with lights, please.)
    2. X-Wing (ibid)
    3. Tie Fighter (ibid)
    4. Falcon (ibid)

    This thread is a great idea.

    I'd like to see:

    1. TIE Advanced X1 (Vader's TIE- this is my most wanted)
    2. Slave I
    3. AT-ST from ROTJ
    4. X-Wing
    5. B-Wing
    6. Naboo Starfighter (I just like the design of the ship, so I'm hoping that a concept model was created at some point. If they can make Yoda's saber and Clone helmets, then this should be possible also)
    7. Ep. III Jedi Starfighter (Based on the concept model from the Art of Star Wars Exhibit)
    8. AOTC Republic Gunship (See #6)


    I already have the AT-AT SE, so I really only have room for 1 or 2 more of these. I definitely want Vader's TIE to be one of them.

    It isn´t on the product plan for 2006, but was anounced to be released. After searching for a while, I found what I was loooking for:

    http://www.rpf.invisionzone.com/index.php?...topic=98240&hl=

    Quote from "Master Replicas":

    "People said that they didn't want less-than-studio-scale models, so we listened.

    However, you then get gigantic models...

    -28-inch long Y wing

    -32-inch long Falcon

    ...For which display cases are not practical.

    We HAVE taken this into consideration and I think everyone will be quite surprised at some of the options that we will have to help out with this.

    More later on that... "

    A very interisting quote from "moes1" from the same thread:

    "Yeah, Im on it. As many of you guys know already I have finish a bird, not an accurate one, but it's very close, very close. My falcon is natually off here and there cuz all the measurements have I based on pictures and kit parts. BUT, I didn't 3D scan the ILM model, MR did, Ive seen that scan, Frank has too and it's very good. This will, if you ask me, give MR a perfect base/basic shape of the Falcon, way more accurate than Franks and mine.
    Where do we come in, well, we have provided MR with the majority the actual kit parts needed to build the model.
    -and, not to brag, but I think I have IDed more parts than any other person tried to attempt this replica, so.... you WILL get a very close and very accurate replica and I do look forward to see it being finish. My dream, is/were to have a great display model of, if you ask me, the all time greatest spaceship."

    Since you also posted in that thread and due to that this is nothing new to you (in case you didn´t forget about it), do you suggest that there is the possibility that the Falcon won´t be released non the less? Companies have spend much more money to develop products that never made it, but only the fact that it ísn´t on the 2006 lineup (yet?) doesn´t make me think that it won´t be released at all.

    Anyway: If Gabe decides to include the Falcon on the list, count me in for the

    32" Falcon

    :D

    Definitely a speeder bike (though I wonder how close the Kenner 12" is in size), ESB Slave 1 and any X-wing.

    Are the models at the Boston MOS exhibit the SS shooting models? If so, that Xwing in freakin' huge (Red 3, ESB Luke).

    I think I have some pictures of the blockade runner, Xwing and some of the falcon as well as the full size and SS land speeder. If anyone's interested, I can post pics tonight.

    A couple of things. First, of course they are working on a Falcon. But it is far from a done deal and your quotes are out of context. Plus they are not an "official" MR announcement. Until then we can all just assume it will come out - at some point in the future. Just like we all have been lead to believe that MR will do Indy props - at some time in the future. I think if you are creating list of "wants" I would say anything not officially announced or released yet should be on there. It shows them there is still an extreme interest in a SS Falcon. But it's Gabe's thread and list so it is up to him.

    Like I said: Of course there wasn´t a releasedate anounced yet. But if "MASTER REPLICAS - License Holder" or better say Steve talks about work on the 32" Falcon, it doesn´t have to get any "more official" to me. But I guess I understand what you mean.

    I AM also extremely interested in the Falcon :cheers and since I won´t be able to afford to buy it directly from MR, I´ll have to wait even longer to get it from the secondary market :unsure

    I believe it won´t make a difference for MR if we have the Falcon on the list or not, but since it won´t hurt either, it could as well be on it.

    So Gabe, it´s up to you whether to include the Falcon on the list or not. Choose, but choose wisely :D

    I really hope the Falcon is released at some point. I would seriously consider it, although I have no idea how I would display it. I probably would have to buy some sort of small table, and then get an acrylic case custom made. I will say that I would rather be forced to do that then to buy a 3/4 scale model like the Snowspeeder.

    I still wonder what Steve meant by the display alternatives for the Y-Wing and Falcon? MR should just sell the acrylic cases separately. That would be easier for them to ship, plus it would keep costs low for people who want a case. Custom cases would be more expensive than that. If you don't want a case, then don't buy it, but I wish we were offered the choice. Obviously the Y-Wing launch has come and gone, and we've heard nothing...
