    Two down, one to go. What new or updated ship and vehicle designs are you hoping to see in the concluding chapter of the Sequel Trilogy?

    What old & new ones would you like to see in Episode XI?
    Starships for the Resistance/Republic, First Order and other possible factions.
    What do you think?

    Hopefully some new Starfighter designs already. Besides the "sort of" original tie silencer design, all we've gotten in the ST is updated x-wing, updated a-wing, updated tie fighter, and even more updated tie fighter (special forces). Plus it appears the FO might also be using updated tie bomber and updated tie interceptor as well.

    Both "Ships/Vehicles" threads merged like the Raddus and a fleet of Star Destroyers

    I hope so. I'm sure we'll see some X-Wings but I'd love it if they introduced something new.

    Hope we get some cool new ships like in the PT. Land vehicles, solar panel gliders like Dooku's ship. I would love even old Naboo starfighters in the final fight. I wonder what Character will battle or Ride a creature in this Episode.

    No death star! No SKB II! No more planet killers!

    I think the FO also needs something to rival the Supremacy however. They do need some awesome pieces of tech since that is their strong suit--large, though largely useless and easy to destroy, mega-ship-things. And perhaps they could have impressive destroyer weapons, just no more blow-up-DS/SKB plots please.

    I think there should be a super weapon, but they should go smaller with it rather than bigger.

    Like the “Wound Star.” With the power to wound, but not kill, entire planetary populations.

    Or the “Streetkiller Base.” Destroying the Resistance one street at a time.

    No vehicles in Episode 9. Everyone just rides tauntauns.

    I really just want to see some inspired new designs. So far, we've had a lot of OT style ships, with little modifications to the overall design. I think we've seen some interesting ones in Solo and in RO, so I'd love to see some more inspired ships in this last Saga Ep. Maybe some weird pirate or bounty hunter cruisers. Maybe some Old Republic cache that we've never seen before. And maybe something completely new from the FO now that it's under new management.

    ROTJ really exploded with all kinds of new ships: That final battle to me is still the best, only with the one in ROTS its equal. Up to that point we saw X and Y wings, but all of a sudden we had B wings, A wings and TIE interceptors just swarming everywhere. But I don't want re do's of these ships again but new stuff.All the reliance on OT nostalgia just made me realize I had gotten bored with it. Seriously, I've watched the originals at least 2-3 times a year every year since they came out on VHS. I was kinda surprised that vehicle design just stagnated after ROTJ for 30 years. Its like going outside and seeing everyone talking on their Bluetooth devices yet driving Ford Pinto's and Caprice Classics. I like TIES and Xwings, but ARC 170s and Delta 7 Jedi starfighters got me excited. The six legged walkers from AOTC were neat, piqued my interest just like seeing an AT AT for the first time. The extra large knuckle draggers on Crait, not so much. Don't remind me of Star Wars, make me dream of it!

    Back to the point, it was always exciting to see the variety of ships used by different worlds and species. The capital ships should draw attention, not just hang out in the background. The FO is really stuck on traditional Imperial design, just oversized (I really, really thought it would have been cool if Snoke was a 1 1/2 foot tall alien that rode on Kylo's shoulder).What has been consistent is that they use really big everything and that it looks formidable but isn't. I think fast and sleek is better. I want to see some new starfighters from them that have something other than two parallel panel wings.

    I imagine that a final battle for IX would involve whatever forces that can unite, across regions of space and varying species of allies; they shouldn't all be flying x wings.

    More believable than giant whales that can do hyperspace?

    No. The whales are more realistic.

    Do you all think Kylo is going to have a distinct flag ship or is it going to be some sort of Star Destroyer?

    Tauntuan cavalry charging Walkers sounds like a great idea! What could go wrong?

    I'd prefer a Death Tauntaun. You thought it smelled bad on the outside? Try hanging out in its moon-sized intestines.

    They gave us a Muppet Yoda. I am grateful for that.

    A stop motion tauntaun.... Those things gave me more joy than anything in the entire Star Wars universe. They ticked exactly the right boxes for little kid me.

    Ewoks riding Tauntauns? Is that taking it too far? Lightsaber weilding Ewoks on Tauntauns? Okay. Fair enough. I'll stop there.

    Kylo Ren on a fire breathing...
