[Terms and Conditions]


  • AT-ST: They fall like dominoes and the empire should do a recall on them, because they’re obviously not Ewok proof.

  • My favourite vehicle is the Emperors Hover Chair in Return of the Jedi. . . Because Im lazy like that.

  • The Death Star!! It has Planet destroying power, enough room for an entire city of people, and its driven by a guy in a slick black suit. Its like a limo but better.
    From the Star Wars Rap “Pull up on your planet death star drive by!”

  • Endor Speeder Bike – nothing would help escape the daily grind like flogging through traffic on a speeder bike.

  • the incom corp x-wing!! the vehicle of choice for rogue squadron and luke skywalker *and if its good enough for a jedi master then its good enough for me*
    a great combination of speed vs fire power plus the ability to switch between the 2 for versatility in a dog fight
    plus its brought down more star destroyers than any other snub fighter in the alliance/new republic fleet.

    *woah i totally got my geek on there..

  • It’s between the classic X-Wing and the Blockade Runner. Love a capital ship with pin up posters on the back of it’s bridge.

  • Without a doubt, it has to be the Millennium Falcon.

    Held together with Wookie sweat and luck, she isn’t much to look at, but has everything you need to get you into and out of trouble with plenty of hidden compartments to hide in when she’s stormed.
    Hell, It can even plot the Kessel run in under 12 parsecs, there is no competition

  • Lambada shuttle its pimp enough for emperor, and was the one and only craft directly responsible for the fall of the empire.

  • TIE fighter! Its cheap, it looks cool, and it makes that awesome swoosh sound. Also without it we wouldn’t have any cool explosions.

  • The J-type 327 Nubian Royal Starship.
    It may not have any weapons but its completely Chrome, so its as pimpin as Star Wars can get.
    That and Queen Amidala may come with it and that cant be bad either.

  • AT-ST for me – great for doing the shopping in, and no parking problems – just kick cars out of the way!

  • RZ-1 A-Wing Interceptor
    It’s a cockpit with 2 giant Event Horizon engines strapped to it, the fastest fighter in the Rebel Fleet. Always wanted to fly one.

  • Those huge jawa transports! Fit your whole crew in there with all your loot, to get to where you’re going in *style*!

  • Imperial Star Destroyer has the firepower to reduce a civilized world to ‘slag’ it carried out the Emperors’ mandate ‘rule through fear and destruction’

  • Speeder Bikes: Simple design and simple drivers, seriously as if you cover your face with your arms when you’re about to hit a tree!


  • Definitely the AT-AT (All-Terrain Armored Transport). Heavy firepower, thick armor and great for hurting the morale of the enemy. “Target at maximum firepower!” – Veers.

  • T-47 airspeeder, because of it’s unconventional harpoon cable weapon. Topple huge AT-AT’s with it or simply hang out your clothes to dry on it!

  • Luke’s Landspeeder in Episode IV. Great for getting power converters from Toshi Station whilst your family get immolated.

  • The Death Star. Because its the freaking DEATH STAR!!

    Also, because I know if I had one of my very own, people would be less inclined to steal my parking spot, overtake me or tailgate me, I’d just blow them and their stinking Hummer back to the stone age…

  • Jabba’s ship , just like a schoolies cruise only with less women in bikinies being chained to slimy aliens.

  • Those 4 legged tall creature like vehicles that the Ewoks managed to steal – they can shoot, crush and give u that much needed height.

  • Have to be the AT-AT, that way i wouldn’t get stuck in the commuter rush on the freeway, could just walk my way through it

  • Death Star because it is so easily reassembled after complete annihilation. Nobody looked any older and it was mostly back together again.

  • R2-D2. Even though he’s not strictly in the vehicle category, he’s just the right height to be an awesome little seat. A seat with a cattle prod and rocket boosters!

  • The Slave 1 – Boba Fetts ship proves its got enough room to fit any junk in its trunk, including any carbonite-imprisoned “guests”

  • Speeder/Swoop Bikes – As a young police officer fresh from the academy, one of these babies would go a long way in helping me bring down the biker gangs and win me a lifetime of respect (and unlimited free donuts!)

  • Cloud City. I always wondered why they didn’t just fly that sucker up into space and use it as a battleship. I’d like to see Admiral Akbar run into a trap when he has Cloud City backing him up!

  • The Milennium Falcon – wasnt it just the coolest with that little training droid that you fight blindfolded. And it was superfast..Although, In a way, Compared to the technology in the vehicles in the newer star wars though(TPM,RotS,AotC), it is almost a roflcopter but it never went “soi soi soi”

  • The Executor-class Star Destroyer (or Super Star Destroyer if you’re old school) would have to be my single favourite ship in the entire Star Wars universe.


    We’re talking 19,000 metres* of unadulterated star ship destroying power, combined with a small army’s worth of AT-ATs, AT-STs & Stormtroopers to take over any Rebel base you see fit.

    Not to mention the sheer soul-crushing feeling that is invoked when you see this ‘mother of all Star Destroyers’ pop out of Hyperspace and the knowing that you’re about to be put into a massive world of hurt. Especially if it’s the Executor itself, because you know Darth Vader isn’t going to be far behind.

    As anyone who has played the X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter expansion pack “Balance of Power” would know, the first time you encounter the Super Star Destroyer it quite nearly scares the living daylights out of you. Flying a basic recon mission checking out some Imperial Star Ships, suddenly a monster of a ship pops out of Hyperspace and nearly turns you into a bug on an interstellar windscreen. Was possibly the most amazing part of an otherwise lackluster expansion pack.

    *Open for debate as they were once thought to be 8,000 metres long, the official(tm) word from Lucasfilm is that they’re 19,000 metres long.

  • Millenium Falcon – because it made me think that bits of junk could actually fly.

    And I DID throw a homemade conceptual Star Wars ship around my room.

  • The Sun Crusher, as any small ship which makes a star in a system turn supernova and was also practically invulnerable is hard to beat.

  • B-Wing – Because no-one else likes it, was designed by a Mon Calamari and is good for wrecking Imperial Star Destroyers.
