Honestly, I can't think of any vehicles in this scale that I would purchase other than MAYBE the speeder bike. Maybe an Ewok Glider? It's going to be hard enough for me to find space to put the figures, let alone vehicles. Even something as small as a Landspeeder would be fairly big, if in more-or-less proper scale.
The idea of the Landspeeder is the only thing that would even remotely appeal to me, and that's only because A.) the Kenner influence on my brain and B.) I love the MOTUC Wind Raider on my shelf. So I could see getting one for Luke, the droids and Kenobi.

But if they never made it, I'd be just as happy.

If I don't get a BMF 6 inch style I'm quitting.

Haha, in all seriousness, the only way I could see vehicles is if they keep up the "premium" format, but sacrifice play features. Maybe keep them in the same 3 3/4"-ish scale, but focus on detail and paint jobs.

I guess it would be like a GG or Sideshow version of the vehicles...I dunno, does this exist already?
I wanna live in your house if it has room for a properly scaled Falcon at the six inch scale.

A vehicle and beasts all meant for one rider. I just think anything more than a one-man vehicle/beast is too large to sell in any decent manner. I would totally dig a 6" scale Landspeeder if I had somewhere to put it, but I don't, and I don't think many people do.

Masters of the Universe Classics has one vehicle and about 4 "beasts"

Well, the He-Man figures are way bigger than these guys will be, in terms of width. You could conceivably design a two seater Landspeeder that's not much bigger than the Wind Raider.

All of the Star Wars mounts are single rider affairs.

I think some people might be overestimating how big these figures are going to be. 6" is really not all that big (insert painfully obvious joke here). If Hasbro made vehicles and beasts for the 12" line, then I see no reason why those same selections aren't also a possibility for the 6" line.

And besides that, they really do not have to be in scale.

I wouldn't mind a TIE fighter myself, there isn't too much to the design so maybe financially doable from a tooling standpoint.

As it stands right now, I don't have any plans to pick up any of the 6" line, but show me a TIE fighter and I wouldn't be able to resist. One would look very nice on display....if I could find some room for it :grin:
I would not be able to resist a 6" scale TIE Fighter; but that's probably as big as the line could possibly go without getting insanely expensive.

Scaled properly, the wings on the TIE would be about 2.5 feet tall. However, it's mostly wings, so the pod itself wouldn't really be that big.

I would gladly pay $250 for a 6" scale TIE Fighter; but that's probably the only vehicle I would even consider.

Yes, we are only talking 2 more inches here, but with Hasbro seeming to be shrinking from even 3.75" vehicles I don't think we will see anything that is not a creature mount for the Black Series.
Probably Speeder Bikes too. The ROTJ Speeder Bike would only be about 15-16" long. So, I think that one is definitely doable in this scale.

you think the stores could/would dedicate the shelf space for anything that big?
Sure they would. TRU especially.

Wait, do you mean the TIE fighter? That I'm doubtful on. Speederbikes, Tauntauns, etc... totally. They'd be no bigger than countless toys currently on the shelves everywhere. "Some assembly required."

The ROTJ Speeder Bike could easily be disassembled and fit in a box only slightly larger than the regular 6" figure box and definitely smaller than the class 2 vehicle boxes.

The TIE Fighter could be packed in a box that would be about 4-6 inches longer than the original BMF box. Sure it's highly improbable, but it's not physically impossible.

Most likely only TRU would. I remember when 21st Century and Hasbro had their vehicles for 12" WWII figures that you could only buy them in TRU. So, I can see them dedicating shelf space but not Walmart or Target.

Sorry, right after I posted I saw that I had basically just repeated what GAdmiralThrawn said in the previous post re: potential 6" line vehicles just being sold at stores like TRU.

I wish we had an edit button here....
