What marketable ships are left from the OT for LEGO to make?

I know I'd like to see a Nebulon-B, or any of the Mon Cal cruisers but can any of those be pulled off in LEGO in a swooshable, salable size?

Midi-scale, dude. Midi-scale.

Seriously, this. I just can't wrap my head around the fact that fanboys so frequently hate the thing they fanboy over.

I don't mind the remakes if they're actual improvements.

There's a ton of room for improving the B-wing. I've seen some incredible MOC b-wings that would be phenomenal releases if Lego decided to do so.

A "midi" Executor would be nice.

The X-Wing could be improved.

It's a good point that some of ya'll bring up regarding recycled sets. I really enjoyed the XWing that was available at TRU. I thought that was a good set. The B Wing wasn't terrible, but it was light years better than the first one. I'd rather see some different scenes than rehashed vehicles.

I hope they continue the Midi-Sets. Better if they expand them past Walmart exclusives.

Though I grew up on the OT, I enjoy the Clone Wars sets the most. However, I love the OT Midi-sets because of their size and are the only sets that get displayed.

a remake of the b-wing: the rebel alliance ship. comes with 2 rebel pilots and luke skywalker.

Where are you guys getting all the hits and pictures about the new sets. To caveat that, the Imperial Shuttle came out on Sept 1 but there are reviews on it from Augest on Legos Shop at Home...how is this possible?

I was in my local lego store yesterday and I have to say, just from looking at the Space Shuttle and the Imperial shuttle side by side, for 99 dollars you really get a much cooler model. You also don't realize how BIG the NASA shuttle is, its easily the same size as the imperial shuttle.

Not to mention that the gear mechanism for the shuttle operates on different levers? Edit: the Wings

You could spend $327 and get Slave 1, Tantive IV, and this NASA shuttle vs 260 for the imperial shuttle with no boarding ramp.

I'm a bit disappointed in this model.

I don't really understand most of what you said, but the part in red really has me perplexed. I could spend $1000 and get the Slave 1, Tantive IV, the NASA shuttle, a Green Grocer, a Taj Mahal, a couple of large Cars DUPLO sets for my son, a few Creator houses, and round it out with a few Pick-a-Brick cups and Bricklink orders, but that hardly seems a fair comparison to make against a single $260 set.

Great, now they've ruined the v-wing starfighter by making it an imperial fighter instead of making it as a republic fighter which would've been much more relevant do to the fact that you only see the imperial version for three seconds at the end of Star Wars Epsiode III plus now we can't add it to the republic army that a lot of us are tying to build.

Look, I realize using the comma and/or occasional period is really difficult to do (I mean, capitalization and advanced punctuation--let alone syntax--are almost out of the question), but is it possible that a minimal effort could be made sometimes? It is actually almost impossible to figure out what exactly some people are trying to say on the internet.

And forgive me if I sound overly snide/uppity/sarcastic/what have you. I'm just really fed up with zero-punctuation posts.

Hey now, I see a period, a comma, and an apostrophe in there.

Good thing about Lego is that you can do whatever you want with the parts. So if you don't really like this version, you can substitute some parts with dark red and make it a republic ship. As for the pilot, same thing: trade it for some version of a clone pilot. I'm an army builder myself and I don't think it's bad if TLG gives us a slightly different vessel.
