  • Comments: The Republic Gunship is a powerful combat vessel used by the clone troopers. Its transport bay can carry large numbers of troops into battle, deploying them through the side doors and with the drop-off landing base. Outfitted with an impressive arsenal of weapons including "laser" cannons, chin guns and missiles, the gunship is one of the Republic's main fighting vehicles in the Clone Wars.






    Points of Interest:
  • The Republic Gunship was originally released in 2002's Saga line, but this time it has new color scheme. It was also released in 2003's Clone Wars line as the Command Gunship with different colors. The sticker sheet with the new version is the same as the 2003 model.
  • Clone Trooper figures and accessories not included. They are shown for display and interactive purposes only.
  • Plans for an updated electronic version of the Gunship and a version packed with troops have not panned out. Only the three repaints shown above were released.
  • Clone Troopers, Clone Pilots, Speeder Bike, and Gun Turrets shown in the above photos are sold separately.

    Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
    I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
    I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
    I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
    I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
    I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
    I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
