37 year old who grew up with the original films here! Thought this might be a fun discussion, it bounces around in my head from time to time. Having grown up with the OT spaceships (toys, models, etc) I think I had a certain mental picture of how a lot of the ships in the PT would look like. In my mind, since it was in the past versus the OT, I expected the fighters and star ships to somewhat look the same, or even "older" (less technically advanced / less polished) than what we saw in the OT. What I saw with the PT films were ships that looked much more futuristic / technologically advanced / shiny / glossy etc versus much of what we saw in the OT. There are of course a myriad of reasons one could imagine (George's vision, changes in the film industry, a galaxy that hasn't been riddled with war yet, you name it...). That said, the purpose of this thread is not to discuss the past, but to discuss your vision / thoughts / desires for what you'd like to see in episodes 7-9 with respect to the space craft / vehicles. Personally, it would be great if we have another "character" as beloved to us as the MF (rumor of the ships demise in ep 7 is certainly intriguing). I'm not very familiar with the EU but I'd love to see Slave 1/2/3 or whatnot worked into the theme. A "cameo" of sorts of the x-wing / y-wing / b-wing / a-wing (pick your poison) would be neat! Most of all, I just can't wait to see what they come up with (and then what LEGO does with them)! Well, I think by now you get the theme of my post. Looking forward to any responses. Take care all.
