    What do you guys think of the overall ship design for the different ships that have been introduced in this new trilogy? I, for one, have not really been that impressed. I somewhat feel Disney is not putting all that effort into ship design as Lucasfilm did with the past two trilogies.

    Thoughts?

    They look okay I guess. Nothing too impressive. But both of Kylo's ships look great.

    eh, the only ship that I thought was rather lame was the First Order troop carrier. It looked like a floating box.

    I got used to it, but the designs overall are definitely too similar to OT. The difference didn't mach the huge jump from PT to OT, even though the gap between RotJ and TFA was the longest. The new desigs are great (TIE Silencer, Kylo's shuttle, Resistance bombers) but I guess not enough changed when it comes to core designs like basic fighters, cruisers, destroyers etc. It's a missed opportunity by J.J. He could have make it more unique looking, but he sacrificed it for nostalgia.

    I like the ships in the new trilogy, the X-wing and A-wing are taken from concept art of Ralph McQuarrie. I also like the First Order TIE fighters both the standard single seat version and the Special Forces two seat version, all of these fighters look like they are a progression on their original designs.

    I think it's great that Lucasfilm are taking inspiration from Ralph Mcquarrie's artwork for these new films, the new look of the Millennium Falcon for Solo is another example.

    I'm a big fan of the Y-Wing and I'm hoping that one might make an appearance in Episode 9.

    I Really like all of 'em.
    @Rogues1138 ... that First Order troop carrier ?
    First I saw it, it immediately struck me as similar to WW2 Navy landing craft.
    Thought that was purdy neat myself.

    I'm into most of it. I like how a lot of it looks Imperial, but sharper... dare I say, literally "edgier".

    Not a fan of the gorilla walkers, though. They seemed like a toy, with the guns on their backs.

    I really liked the troop carrier (reminded me of Starship Troopers) and the Resistance bombers.

    the way the command shuttle purrs like a jaguar may be my favorite tech/ship thing in all of Star Wars. : D

    i also really love the Finalizer.
    i always liked the star destroyers, but the Finalizer really looks like the logical evolution of those Imperial warships and that's exciting to me.
    the pizza dreadnaught is weird looking, i think. but the Supremacy, also, looks like a natural "next step" as well.

    overall, i really like the new ships and i like that they're drawn on McQuarrie influences.

    and Poe better get another black X-wing, because that thing was awesome. XD

    OK so it's not exactly new trilogy but Rogue One's "new" ships (or seeing ships that did exist but we didn't see them in ROTS or ANH).....as my other thread on this ship will show, I love the UT-60D U-Wing. Also great to see some other smaller capital ships such as the Hammerhead Corvette play vital roles.

    I've never been big on starships, but I do like their look, especially after getting to own TIE Silencer and the FO Star Destroyer in Lego form, which I might prefer over Imperial and Venator class ones. Also, I need to give a shoutout to The Raddus, especially that pointy end. Come on, Lego, I'm still waiting for my UCS Mon Calamari cruiser. I mean, look at it!

    Also the Resistance Bombers are cool.

    I'm honestly surprised all the positive responses for the Resistance bomber. Tbh, I hated the design. I just thought they could have put a little more effort in the design overall.

    I mainly have only liked the gorilla walkers, Kylo's TIE Silencer, FO troop carrier and Star Destroyer looked cool.

    I would like to see the new version of the B-Wing and TIE Interceptor get introduced in Episode 9. Wished they were put in 8.

    Most of the vehicles and ships look amazing to me.
    Specially Kylo's shuttle, my favorite so far.
    I also loved the AT-M6, they look so menacing.

    YES. I love Kylo's ships and I want to build the LEGO versions, tbh.
