I finally found a CW Gunship today. However, I thought this was a TH vehicle and the packaging would read 'Titanium Limited' rather than the normal 'Titanium Series'. Is the special foil packaging only for the US?? Because from the pics I've found on the net what I got was basically the regular red gunship packaging with a CW gunship put in.
All of the Clone Wars Gunships that I've ever seen (and the couple that I've bought) said "Titanium Limited
Die-Cast" on them, at the top, in a silver foil type of sticker
, which differs from the regular ships that all say "Titanium Series
Die-Cast" at the top, with a regular (non-silver foil) sticker. It's not quite like the "Treasure Hunt" silver packaging of the recent Slave-1 though, but fairly similar, and definitely different from the regular issue ships, for sure. At least here in the U.S.
I've got the new ROTS Falcon now as well, and it's got the same "Limited" silver foil sticker at the top as the Clone Wars Gunships. Maybe you got a production error, or an odd switcheroo from someone's return, or if you're not in the U.S. that's just how they come in your country...? I don't know. Good luck figuring it out. Still a cool ship, nonetheless. Do you open them, or keep them "carded"?
I guess these "chase" ships aren't quite as tricky to nab as many of us feared early on. The Silver UGH Slave-1 is practically warming the pegs around here, and I've even seen a few of the CW Gunships of late. I guess that's a good thing, since the chase pieces in some of the other lines (Kubrick, Bust-ups, etc.) are turning into a real nightmare nowadays!
