I would like an Imperial Prison Barge "Purge" playset, not necessarly a full ship, with a couple holding cells, a med bay, escape pod, maybe a bridge and lots of zombie figs (troopers, officers, prisoners, a rodian, a wookie and of course the other non-zombie characters).

This isn't so much a wishlist as it is a list of iconic Star Wars vehicles that still haven't received the Lego treatment.
Sometimes it's hard to imagine why certain vehicles have gone through three and four incarnations while others still haven't been made into sets. Here are the ones I'm surprised they haven't done yet:
Rebel Transport - Sure it's a (somewhat) boring cargo vessel, but I think they could make up for it with a lot of play features and small bonus vehicles.
Royal Starship - Despite being an iconic ship featured heavily in Ep. I this one proves problematic due to it's chromed body. I imagine this reason alone is why the ship hasn't been done.
Gian Speeder - Not sure why they haven't done this one.
Lars Family Speeder - This one probably doesn't qualify as "iconic", but I think it's well known enough to constitute a set.
E-Wing Starfighter - A very well known vehicle from the Expanded Universe. Now that they've done the TIE Defender I don't see any reason why they couldn't do the E-Wing.
So, what other iconic ships are you surprised that Lego hasn't done yet?
