There was a thread were people debated wether they should regret not getting the original Cloud City or not, as it was a rather "meh" set. If they were to re-make Cloud City, which I hope they'll do some time soon, what should it look like and what should be included?
My wish is that they'd Death Star it, shape it like Cloud City, but make it an "interior set", focusing only on the inside, perhaps with a couple of exterior details, like landing platforms.
These rooms/locations should be included:
At least ONE landing platform, like in the original, it could be big enough to hold Slave I or the Millennium Falcon, but that's not a must. It should be able to hold a cloud car though, and of course, one of those would have to be included. Like Vader's TIE in Death Star, only, not midi-scale.
Han and Leia's room. Can't think of any play-features for this one, but it should be included.
The dining room. Where the heroes are ambushed by Darth Vader and Boba Fett. This was in the original and should have the same type of door.
The garbage disposal room, from which Chewbacca saves C-3PO. In this room I can imagine quite a lot of play-features, like the assembly line and the big oven.
Obviously, the freezing chamber, where Han is put in carbonite. This room would also contain a lot of play-features, like freezing Han and perhaps a way to make Luke jump out, as he does during his and Vader's climatic duel. This room should be connected to the next room, which is...
...that dark room where Vader throws Luke out the window, both this, the above and the next one were included in the original, but it didn't look like that was too good... The way they did the window looked nice, though.
The location where Vader reveals he is Luke's father, hopefully they would make it over the large pit, as in the film... The next bit would be a bit complicated to make, but the designers at LEGO are so skilled they'd probably succeed: If they could make the hole which Luke "falls" through, when he ends up hanging from the antenna. It would be hard, but it would be so cool if they did...
Have I forgotten any iconic Cloud City location? I'm sure you'll let me know, now, for the minifigures!
As this would be a pretty large set, I expect there could be quite a lot of minifigures in it. They'd probably want to make this the ultimate Cloud City, so here's my guess, at what we'd see:
Han Solo: Flight jacket, plain shirt and carbonite. All released last year.
Princess Leia: Cloud City-dress and that white outfit she wears during their escape, possibly just one version. The Cloud City-dress was released in the original, with yellow skin.
Chewbacca: Carrying C-3PO on his back, as seen in LEGO Star Wars II. There might be a regular version as well, but I wouldn't think so... This would mean there'd be no extra C-3PO as well.
Luke Skywalker: Bespin outfit. Previously released in the original version, with yellow skin.
Lando Calrissian: Same as in the original, only with reddish brown skin and dotted eyes.
Lobot: Now in flesh-tones and dotted eyes and with the head-set as a part of his head or as an acessory. Previously released in Cloud Car with yellow skin and head-set printed on.
Bespin guard x2: Perhaps two different flesh tones? Previously released in Slave I(2006) with reddish brown skin.
Ugnaugts x2: I think two is a realistic guess, I would expect them to look the same, as the jawas or the gnomes of Harry Potter.
Stormtrooper x2: I know we all want more than that, but when Death Star had two(or four, that depends on how you count) no more would be realistic.
Darth Vader: Same old, same old...
Boba Fett: He'd probably be the same as in the newest Slave I, but one could always hope for a new version with printed, GREY, arms and legs...
So these are my thoughts on what to expect from a Cloud City-remake. Realistic? I think so... I'll propose two other badly needed remakes as well, when I get the time: Jabba's Palace and the Mos Eisley Cantina(unless someone beats me to it, they're more than welcome to).
