Which are your top 12 minifig-scale vehicles?

Recommended Posts

As the title says, which are your top 12 minifig-scale vehicles (or sceneries with vehicles) that Lego has made into an official set?

I have an Ikea Kallax with 16 cubbies that I just assembled. I placed inserts at the lower 4 to convert them into storage. Meanwhile, I purchased a third-party acrylic window pane to make them dust-tight.

If you had the same display, which 12 sets would you display?

So far, I'm thinking of the following:

-Trench run with X-Wing (75301) and Tie Fighter (75300)

-Yavin IV (75365) but perhaps using Y-Wing (75172)

I can't even think of 12 but the number 1 is the UCS Falcon, which I doubt will fit in any of those cubbies. Snowspeeder is cool though.

I don't think you'll get any "minifig-scale" vehicles in a 13.25" x 13.25" cube.

It's clear they mean minifig compatible, Come on don't be a pendant 

That said I haven't got the measurements of my favourite sets on hand.

But ignoring measurements some of my favourites are the Ghost, the Havoc marauder, the republic gunship, the AT-TE, the various tie fighters ( the defender is my favourite but the official set version is a bit dated), the razor crest, the N1, U-wing, X-wing, Krennic's Delta class shuttle, MTT, AT-AT, turbo tank, Slave 1, 

Another thing I could suggest is having multiple in each cubby, I wouldn't stuff too many in of anything but with small ships it can work well.

Thank you both for suggestions!

Most of the modulars fit, except the large ones so I am hoping I could fit multiple vehicles in using some acrylic stands.

Any of the Naboo Starfighter sets, particularly the last two, would make for a good hangar scene from TPM. I have the 2011 one that's been on display for a long time on my shelves. You could throw in Maul, Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon from 75169 as well.

Another one would be the Battle of Scarif, using 75171, plus a TIE Striker and/or U-wing, depending on the space available. Easy enough to combine with random stormtroopers or rebel minifigures if you have them lying around.

Final suggestion is Battle of Takodana using 75139 and 75140, with some extra FO baddies. Both seem to be relatively inexpensive on the aftermarket if you don't have them, and 75140 is a great set to boot!

Obi-WAN’s Jedi Starfighter set along the way!! And I love Adventurers vehicles, such as hot air balloon and jungle car.

Just hopping in here, it looks pretty cool with the smaller ships. I have my rebel and imperial fighters lined up next to eachother on the shelf/cubby unit I have with figs and small ground/refueling vehicles around them, it really adds to the display.
