I think Hasbro is capable of the kind of quality work that 21st Century does. BUT, I think their motivations are trying to keep the pricepoint low, as well as their costs. Remember, the Star Wars license did not come cheap for Hasbro. Lucas got 10% of the company as part of the agreement.
As for the Gunship going on clearance, it's not happening everywhere. Plus, it had much higher production runs than most 21st Century vehicles. In that regard, I think that kind of comparison is wrong. Especially when I still see plenty of Corsairs, Lightnings and Stukas still sitting on shelves.
