Celebrate the release of Episode III with these awesome vehicles that are straight from the thrilling new Star Wars adventure.

Republic Gunship
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.

This is more than a vehicle ? it?s a playset! Open the canopy and place up to two figures (sold separately) inside, or lower troops down the rappel line. Fire the real working missiles against droid armies, or activate the drop attack when you?re in position over enemy lines.
