What Star Wars Vehicle Do You Think Would Be Best Suited for Life on Earth?
Star Wars creatures, critters, and robots get lots of appreciation, but what about the imaginative carriages that make all the heroes’ galaxy jetting possible? We picked a few rides from the series that would be ideal for suburban life - add yours below!
- •LandspeederThe landspeeder is the 1995 Toyota Tercel of the Star Wars universe. It’s the vehicle where only one side of the speakers work, the cassette deck eats half the tapes put into it, and its bumper is precariously affixed with duct tape. But, for all its flaws, there’s beauty in that dilapidated machine. Above all else, the landspeeder—much like the Toyota Tercel—represents freedom. Well, the kind of freedom that means so much to both teenagers and enterprising Jedi.
- •AT-AThe AT-AT is best, because it is an adorable four-story murder palace. The stereotype about the suburbs is each social interaction is a passive-aggressive struggle for social dominance. Eradicate these petty contests as surely as you would a Rebel base by striding down Oakvale Lane in an AT-AT, a vehicle that will put to rest any question of where you stand in the order of things. Clearly, you are above it all.
- •Boba Fett’s Slave ILife in the suburbs isn’t about having the most useful or practical vehicle, it’s about having a practical vehicle that is also better than whatever your neighbor has. To that end, there’s no better choice for running errands than Boba Fett’s Slave I. It’s fast, it has slick retro styling, and its cargo hold is secure enough to carry an untrustworthy smuggler frozen in carbonite all the way from Bespin to Tatooine without putting a chip in his handsome face.
- •Speeder bikeFor those aging suburban dads (or moms!) looking to prove they still have the edge to make very stupid decisions, there’s the speeder bike, a reckless, foolhardy, and insanely fast mode of transport that’s basically a rocket with handlebars attached. The speeder bike is the perfect way to tell the world that, despite your age and increased responsibilities, you don’t fear death or property damage.
- •AT-ST WALKERAlthough the AT-AT is fine, the WALKER is more of a Segway than an SUV. Perfect for sidewalks, forests, ice, ect.Suggested by @mwbarnhart54
- •ChewbaccaNot necessarily a vehicle but he would be great at giving piggyback rides and that does count as moving a person from point A to point B.Suggested by @mallofamanda
