Here is a list of SW sets I think lego should make:
Jabba'a Sail Barge
Death Star
Tie Intercepter
Rebel Transport
Mon Cal Crusier
Super Star Destroyer
Rebel Frigate

I know it is very unlikely that they'll ever come out with half these but I like to dream. What do u guys think?

The only two of those I really want are the Interceptor and the Sailbarge. I wouldn't want a UCS Death Star at all, but if you're referring to a playset, then I would want it.

A set I would put on the list though is a Sandcrawler.

Jabba'a Sail Barge - It might be a stretch given how big it would need to be, but that seems like a logical request.

Death Star - as a sculpture: maybe of limited size. As playsets like a trash compacter: yessir.

Tie Intercepter - As I've said here before, how do we have 3 sets with a regular TIE but still no system Interceptor?

Rebel Transport - another stretch

Mon Cal Crusier - now we're getting greedy

Super Star Destroyer - see above

Rebel Frigate - see above

(as capital ships go, the ISD is the most iconic, and even that seemed like a long shot before it was made available)

Sandcrawler - This one needs serious consideration from the LEGO Co. if they haven't already planned it. What's a SW line without Jawas?

Let's not forget Amidala's ships from I and II.

Those would be great or a palace scene.

Wow! WOW! WOWWWW!

Sailbarge and TIE Interceptor definitely. I'd like to see a few redesigns - AT-ST, A-Wing and B-Wing. But top of the list MUST be a Sandcrawler, complete with Jawas, droids, and maybe even Uncle Owen and Luke. Now that is one set I would buy.

I'd like it if they included Owen's house with it as well. Lego usually include something else with the big models, and then we could have a little 'droid sale' scene.

I'd like to see a Lars Homestead, and an Amidala figure. Amidala would be easy now with Luminari's hat.

Sandcrawler would be nice. Tie Interceptor too. And anything with a Taun-taun.

Make sure your not near your Lego

Of all the sets that have been suggested a Sand crawler would be the easiest, make it about the same size as the mtt.

edit: and price as mtt

I know other people have said these are unlikely, but I would still really like to see:

1) Hoth playsets - with Taun Taun &/or cannon
2) Queen Amidala Royal Starship (in chrome of course!)
3) more Padme Amidala mini-figs

Jabba's Sail Barge - Not too likely.
Death Star - Very high chance of getting this set (sorry can't tell why)
Tie Intercepter - Definitely with such a large fan base.
Rebel Transport - Probably not.
Mon Cal Crusier - Probably not.
Super Star Destroyer - Probably not.
Rebel Frigate - Probably not.

There is a very high chance of a Sand Crawler too Smile (Can't tell you guys why)

I'd like to add an 'Endor Bunker' set with Han, Leia, Chewy, some Endor Rebels, that back entrance to the Bunker, maybe a couple of trees, and...ugh...most likely a re-designed AT-ST (lets face it, if any set actually needed to be re-designed due to uglyness, it's the AT-ST).

A Hoth playset would be really nice too, something along the lines of the 'Cloud City' set. And a small Hoth set that includes a Snowie and an E-Web cannon, kinda like the Final Duel II set in terms of price. That way we can build up an army of them!

It seems like I'm one of the very few who couldn't care less about Hoth or Death Star sets. Wink Personally I'm more interested in the MIA minifigs: some more Padmes, Amidala, Ackbar, those dkblue Royal Guards from the end of TPM, more "secondary" Jedi, etc.

I'd be in heaven if they made a System Republic Cruiser (AoTC) or the red "shuttle" that takes the Neimoidians away at the end of TPM.

The only sets(system) that I see a chance of being made are the TIE interceptor (100%) and the Sandcrawler (50%).

Of course, I'm talking about the OT here.

I'll vote for a TaunTaun set, with a reb and snowie... but as far as lego has gone to make us pay big for the sets with snowies... doubtful.

And i'd also like to see deathstar playsets, with big mounds of imps and stormies... which could be a possibility if you've seen teh new 10 MF imp shuttle!

last SW set that had that kind of fig #'s was the $100 cloud city!

Perhaps we're now more likely to get a Queen Amidala' Royal Starship now that they're using the new, cheaper crome?

I am a large Imperial fan, so I will buy any Imperial sets.

An Executor set would be fantastic, but a larger one than the original ISD.

The new Imperial shuttle set is still so fantastic, however it is only a redesign.

It is very time for the TIE Interceptor set after the new TIEs, the TIE\dr, and the shuttle.

That's a good point, but I'd be very skeptical about such a smooth ship being faithfully reproduced with LEGO... I think it'd be similar to all the Star Trek MOCs out there: they might look impressive, but they're still really blocky. (Unless they used a bunch of chrome pieces a-la the back of JF's Slave 1. Dunno, if LEGO could pull it off, I'd be impressed.

Yeah, but look at waht they charge for sets with a LITTLE chrome in them now... the UCS Naboo fighter, with like 6 large pieces of chrome, was $40, and had what... 60 pieces?

But that was his point, though...

The UCS Naboo Fighter had the original expensive chrome. He's suggesting it might be possible with the newer ("dull"er?) chrome instead.

What is all this talk about "Cheaper chrome"? I'm not sure what this is. Can someone point out an example piece so I can use it to compare?

Up to this point, I've given up on an "all chrome" Naboo Royal Starship. So, I've been endeavoring to get my custom model "vacuum-metalized". The estimate I've received so far is $150.00 for the process.

Can't think of any of the sets offhand, but what they're calling "chrome" on some of the newer sets isn't the shiny silver like the old ones, but just cheaply painted on... I think.
