YMMV, but it’s never sat well with me that this was called the Theta, for a couple reasons. First, Greek Letter designations (Tionese Alphabet in-universe) are usually reserved for hyperspace-capable shuttle craft, and has been canonically preempted by the Theta-Class Shuttle from RotS; second, “Theta” doesn’t fit with the naming conventions of the other two known Incom Landing Ships (the Y-4 Raptor and the Y-85 Titan). For the purposes of my own headcanon, I’ve renamed this ship the Y-8 Gigas. There a couple subtle homages in the name: the -8 (Theta is the eighth letter of the Greek alphabet), and Gigas, the singular for Gigantes, the Giants of Greek myth who were born from the spilled blood of the Titan Uranus and were known for their strength and aggression (which references the clear familial connection with the larger Y-85). Take it for what you will.

Would love to see these along with LAAV/i deploying like how LAAT/i and LAAT/c deploy in the Clone Wars series for planetary assaults.

The walker looks like my kid trying to not pee their pants. Lol I really love your design! It’s great to see something so detailed and realistic! Ever thought of doing an interior shot looking out the bridge?

I wonder if Fractal will ever do the Escort Transport.

It’s gorgeous! Great compositions also!
I had started modeling the larger Titan barge a while ago, but did not get very far with the project. So I keep fingers crossed that this is somewhere on your to do list.

About 2 dozen maybe and could you make a AT ST. Thank you for your work Mr. Hsiao.

Nice! Now we have an official art source for the Theta-class! We need to start updating the Legends pages on wookiepedia sometime.

Oh! Oh, my…

That’s beautiful. I recall discussing this ship with you at some length a while back, and it’s good to see the end result. Excellent work, as always.

What’s your take on dimensions and armament? I’m guessing two dual laser cannon up front and two dual heavy laser cannon / ULTL in the rear?

Not sure on dimensions, but looking at the photos of the model, I think your armament stats would be more or less accurate? 🤔

Love that shot of them emerging from the ISD hanger! 😝

What are the dimensions? Just eyeballing it (with the SWTC’s AT-AT length of 26 meters), it looks ~50 meters long.

Love it! I like how you posed the Chi-Class along side of it. Love the shot with them dropping out of the ISD hangar! Good work!
