Forum Vehicle of the Year 2019 - Round 1 - Group B

Post by Pomse2001 » Fri Sep 27, 2019 5:23 pm

I am sure some members now will scream, 2 cool vehicles in the same group in 1 st. round, which one will exit the game allready in first round ? I would say one of this 2 vehicles could have gone to the final, but a draw is a draw.

Choose one Vehicle from the list

The winner will go to next round.

Voting Closes 18.23 on 30th September

ok this one is a very hard one for me, love the rebel transport with seats for many figures and for cargo :D Even seats for cannons.

But then again that shuttle is just so fucking cool and there is also seats and room inside it for the dark lord and some troops or guards.

I have to choose the shuttle.

The first transport has left the system!

Difficult choice here. I have had, and loved, my rebel transport since childhood, but absolutely love the imperial shuttle design.
I voted for the shuttle :D
You weren't on any mercy mission this time, Your Highness.

Well this Jez has voted for the Shuttle ;-)

They're both very good likenesses of their on-screen counterparts, albeit both are woefully undersized of course. However, Imperial Shuttles carried both the Emperor and Darth Vader to the second Death Star, and carried Luke, Han, Chewie, Leia, R2-D2 and C-3PO to the forest moon of Endor. The Rebel Transport carried cargo...

:lol:

I tried listening to Jez waxing lyrical on the Rebel Transport on the VR podcast again to see if his persuasive arguments on the relative merits of this glorified carry case could swing me, and although I concluded it was good, the Shuttle is just way cooler. Something obviously worked though because I clicked the wrong button when voting :lol:

Tough one, as an adult I would probably go for the shuttle, but as a child probably would have got little play out of it. Bit of an overkill to fly in the Emperor to inspect the imperial army of 7. But then the transport annoyed me that it had a back door to allow the enemy to escape with ease

Will need time to think...

Ooh tricky. Hang on, not at all tricky.
Rebel Transport. She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts.
No wings to break, no over inflated price, full on nostalgia.
Escape hatch, removable guns, it’s hot the whole package.
Shame these two were against each other so soon.
If I had to save one in a fire it would be the Rebel Transport.
I’ve even been tempted to have a focus!!

Oh...now that you put it that way there’s only one deserving winner...if only I hadn’t wasted my vote on the beautiful Imperial shuttle! :roll: :wink:

Transport is such a great vehicle and was great to play with. And actually very practical.

What a battle it was, first it looked like it would be 50/50 but then something happened with the Imperial Shuttle Vehicle and it ran away and won.

Imperial Shuttle Vehicle is the 2nd vehicle to go to the second round :D

Sorry to disappoint Edd, but Jez may only created 13 accounts (I maybe a west country lad with a low maintenance hair style but I'm not Jez)

However, in my defence, I was suffering from a fever and was barely conscious when I voted...
