    If you could own any vehicle from a movie, book, comic, from any medium what would it be?

    Personally, I'd own the following:

    a- The Tumbler
    b- Kaneda's bike from Akira
    c- The NCC-1701- Kirk's original Series Enterprise
    d- one VF-1S
    e- And last, Wing Zero Custom (Changed My Mind)

    It's a tough question, I must say. You want to choose something you can control yourself. Not something so big you need a whole crew.

    I would pick an actual Tumbler. That's pretty bad ass.

    At the dawn of the Paleolithic Period
    when the first humans left their caves,
    mastered the secrets of fire,
    and started making tools
    with which to hack civilization out of the wilderness
    This was mankind's first, tiny step toward an unseen singular goal
    that would take millennia to achieve.

    The centuries that we spent devising
    physics, mathematics, chemistry, engineering, metallurgy...
    All of our combined knowledge and technological advancements as a species
    were to finally culminate in the creation of a machine of such flawless beauty
    that it now clearly stands out as human civilization's crowning achievement:

    Airwolf.
    [​IMG]
    In 1984 the world's most brilliant scientists and engineers were assembled in secret
    for the sole purpose of constructing the world's most advanced
    Mach One Plus attack helicopter.
    This would be more than just an instrument of war.
    It would be a work of art.
    And no expense was spared in this, mankind's boldest endeavor to date.
    The original Da Vinci parchments were consulted.
    Extrapolations were made.
    Fifth generation Swiss craftsmen were flown in merely to construct the dashboard.

    There was painstaking attention to detail.

    And upon its completion,
    those present were unable to do anything
    but stand and marvel
    in wonder and in awe
    at the sleek, black aerodynamic perfection...
    that was Airwolf.
    [​IMG]
    And I know there are voices of dissent shouting,
    "What about Blue Thunder? What about Knight Rider?"
    Fuck Blue Thunder.
    Fuck Michael Knight!
    And to hell with Street Hawk and Firefox.

    Airwolf.

    Airwolf is the adjective we should use to describe anything
    of majesty, beauty, and intensity.
    Something that is simply fucking bad ass.... is Airwolf.
    James Brown's music is Airwolf.
    Shakespeare is Airwolf.
    Sex so good it makes your spine ache and your knees buckle?
    That's Airwolf.

    And nothing is more Airwolf than Airwolf.

    Airwolf is the Holy Grail. The Golden Fleece.
    The thing you want that you cannot have.
    When you go sprinting through the mall
    desperate to fill the emptiness in your life
    through the purchase of name brand clothing and electronics
    You will never achieve satisfaction.
    Because the one brand name you really want
    is the one you can never have.
    Airwolf?
    Oh, I'm sorry, we're all sold out.
    That item was only available for a very limited time
    and in very limited supply.
    One.

    And only one man stepped forward to purchase it.
    Stringfellow Hawk!
    [​IMG]
    And he bought it for the bargain basement price
    of having the solid brass balls to steal it from the US government,
    when, in their hubris, they were foolish enough to ask him to be the test pilot!

    You don't ask a guy with a name like Stringfellow Hawk
    to fly your top-secret black helicopter.
    Why?
    Because he is obviously going to steal it!
    He's obviously a prototypical American anti-hero,
    for fuck sake!
    He lives in the mountains.
    He plays the cello.
    His name is String Fellow Hawk.
    He cannot be trusted.
    He's not going to use Airwolf to execute American foreign policy.
    He's going to keep it for himself.

    Which is exactly what you would do.

    Walking out to your back yard to stare at it every night around sunset.
    The sight of it filling you such peace and resonant satisfaction
    that you would come to believe the perfect haiku
    would have just two syllables:

    Airwolf.

    Not really. The SDF's are about the size Imperial class star destroyer. And there's what 1 SDF is you go by the anime and 3 (but never at one time) if you go by the american fiction. Plus to shoot it's main guns it has to transform. So 1 Imperial tactical fleet would pwn it good.

    Enterprise E. When beating the shit out of the Borg, accept no substitutes.

    If we're going on a smaller scale, I'm gonna be a total Anime nerd and say the YF-19 from Macross Plus.

    Oh, this would be an easy one...

    1) KSE Firespray(better known as Boba Fetts Slave I) Reason: Because 1, it can fly, it isn't awesomely huge. Has a crew quarters, cargo hold and prisoner cages. Plus, can have others to ride with. I feel it would be a good thing to have for travel.

    2) BTTF2 DeLorean(Hover converted w/ Mr. Fusion) Reason: Everyone wants this time machine. Why not have it where it can fly and all you need is to throw your garbage in to power the time circuits and Flux Capacitor. Just watch those paradox's!

    3) Wing Gundam Reason: who wouldn't want a giant robot?

    The Death Star, assuming that counts as a "vehicle". If that's not an option, then I'll settle for a Borg cube.
