COMMENTS
This series of comics were released in Toys R Us stores right after the release of Attack of the Clones. Each were given away free, usually at the customer service counter, though some were placed in the Star Wars aisle.

For the most part these stories can be considered out of continuity as they are basically ads for the Star Wars toy line.
SYNOPSIS
Aboard the lead Republic Gunship over Geonosis, a Clone commander informs Yoda that they will be arriving at the arena momentarily. Yoda expresses his distress at the situation, but the Commander informs Yoda that the clones are ready and they've come prepared for a fight.

In the Geonosis execution arena, the Gunships storm in, lasers blasting; Jedi fight battle droids, and chaos reigns! The clones charge into the fray allowing the Jedi and Padmé to board the Gunships.

The lead Gunship takes flight and destroys a handfull of droid starfighters, before Yoda orders it back to the ground. The Commander proudly touts the Gunship powers. Yoda agrees, but is afraid that these machines of war are a sign of a perilous future.
