Huh I don't remember seeing that (the AT-AT).
It's seen near the landing platform, at night, just before Luke is brought to Vader by the soldiers.
Guess I'll have to watch it again.
Nothing from the PT as they are all garbage. apart from Slave 1!
I thought the Jedi Starfighters in Episode III looked like an OK predecessor to TIE fighters.
Those designers confuse their eras.
Jade Shadow and the Falcon, possibly the Lady...if the Big Four actually end up being in it.
Other than that, it'd be cool to see some new ships and vehicles. I like the E-wing, but the cannon on top always looked a bit weird to me...On another note, it'd be cool to see some of those rebuilt starfighters made from salvaged parts of other ships, I forget what they call 'em.
From Episode III I also liked the ARC-170s, in my opinion were cool as predecessors to X-Wings
Just the Falcon.
I almost rather we'd seen the Z-95s from The Clone Wars in that role instead of the big, ARC-170s... those things kind of remind me of IL-2 Sturmovichs for some reason.
The Millennium Falcon, hands down. Piloted by Han Solo, and then given to newest hero.
Z-95s are very cool too, remind me of those long dragster cars, but I have a thing for S-Foils, hope some Episode VII fighters got them.
Ooh, and the inside of it. I'm always interested in seeing how the toys would really look inside. The toy of that was basically a collector's case.
I do like that picture someone posted of giant walkers. The progression seems to have gone bigger after the Prequel era. The X-Wings were longer than the ARC fighters, and the AT-ATs were bigger and more menacing than the earlier walkers. The mixture of walkers and hovercraft like the TF tanks kind of bothered me though, and almost made walkers seem unnecessary. The one vehicle I did like from the Prequels was the clone's assault gunship.
You are right in the case of walkers, but I think ARCs were bigger, but only because they needed to accommodate three passengers and had two bigger engines. I like to think the X wings have more efficient and advanced engines and for that reason they are smaller. Also having four of them make them faster I suppose.
I want to see a ship that uses a cloaking device, maybe the technology has advanced enough that it's not impossible for a ship as small as the Millennium Falcon to now have one.
Or it could just be another bigger ship that has one, either way, I just want to see it.
Maul's Sith Infiltrator is about the size of the Falcon and I think has one.
I want to see a house turn into a spaceship.
Well, this will certainly be the most boring film in the franchise. The only transportation in the galaxy is the Falcon...
At least there won't be anything to chase it or shoot at it in your exciting scenario.
I remember seeing that in a book but I thought how could Maul's Sith Infiltrator have one in TPM, but then some 30 plus years later in TESB Captain Needa seems to think the technology doesn't exist for a small ship.
Perhaps Captain Needa is just an idiot and deserved to be choked.
Perhaps Lucas forgot that line when providing the details of the Infiltrator.
Or it's a lost secret known only to the Sith and their stooges.
Maybe there was a rip in the space time continuum preventing Infiltrators from ever existing again.
The technology already existed in ESB, that comment was just Imperial ignorance. Boba Fett's ship has a cloaking device and that is much smaller than the Falcon.
Ah, I accidentally referred to the Jedi Starfighters in Episode III as ARC fighters.
The Jedi Starfighters, with their cockpit design, seemed like they were intended to be proto-TIE fighters.
