Clues about future ships in card art?

33 posts in this topic

I think the next phase of ships could include some of the bounty hunter pilots and their ships. IG-88, Zuckuss, Dengar, et. al. There's a lot of room to add fighters and large ships from that group.

Quick question about the outrider though:I remember having a toy when i was a kid, and it was a small freighter type, only it tilted in the middle and formed a T shape. Was that the outrider? Or am I just completely mistaken? Looking over a lot of art for the outrider, I don't see any images of it tilted, or even see how it could be.

It definitely wasn't the Outrider. Not sure what it could have been--a Skipray? Not a freighter, but at least it has the variable-geometry aspect.Ooh, or the YV-666, better known as the Hound's Tooth?
Actually, the toy they made for Outrider in the mid- or late-90s did exactly that. Probably just to make it stand out from the Falcon a little more.

EDIT: Found a link with some pictures. You have to scroll down to the bottom to see the rotating center part.

Weird, but good to know!

here we go. note the huge cannon that apears to be missing from FFG's model. or rather, how this model is very nearly an entirely different ship.

We're not going down this road again are we?

 

C'mon... this stuff is fun.

Don't be such a kill-joy. :P

 

I'm not being a kill joy. It's just been hashed over so many times. Why don't we start a new Star Destroyer thread. We haven't had one of those for a few weeks.  :D
