  • 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.

    The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
    Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
    Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
    Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
    meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
    Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
    Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
