I did run across one with sloppy paint (bright red from the gun dribbled on to the mouth area).

But I love the ship. I broke it out and my kids and I watched the DVD's with the toys. It was a good way to continue enjoying star wars.

I think the price hike will eventually allow these to sit on the shelves for a bit, but I don't think they will hang around until christmas or clearance time. They are too unique.

I gave in to the online ordering on May 2nd and received my 2 gunships last week from Amazon.  I got two more on the way but it is pushed back until June 5th.   I did not want to go through the ROTS gunship hunt again during it's initial release.  I haven't opened them yet as I am in the process of doing some inventory on my collection. 

By now, I hope hasbro realizes the gunships sells almost as well as the millenium falcon.

That's a lotta diorama'ing.

My area has a lot of these.  Evne low traffic TRU's have at least 4 sitting around, and the high traffic stores have them stocked down where you can get them, then like another 10 up high and out of the way...  It's crazy.  I think the price is hurting these in particular...  It's not packed in a huge box really, so $40+ stings I think.

I love the paintjob despite my feelings about the toy...  It's really pretty nice, and I'd think kids would want these things if nothing else, but at least in my area these are REALLY easy to find right now.

2 TRU's locally.  The first one to get them in has none left, the second still has 11.

The high price point will slow sales a bit but they will all be sold out by late summer.

I love this ship my favorite thus far.
But I have to say I am just about done with the Gunship. I have all 4 and thats enough! One of the greatest vehicles to ever grace the line. This one completes my fleet.
I am starting to feel the same the the Jedi Starfighter. Once I get Vaders and Windus 6 should be enough.......

I went to TRU after work tonight, they had a ton of CW gunships.  Love the paint job, hate the $44.99.  I passed on it and bought Major League Baseball 2K6 for PS2 instead.  Much better value IMO.  If I see the ship on clearance, I'll pick a couple up.

If anyone accidently finds a CW Command gunship stuck in the box or wants to sell a CW Command gunship to afford this. Feel free to LMK.

DR - at one time somebody did the "buy and switch" technique with the new Animated Gunship. 

They bought the new Animated version and returned the box to TRU with the black CW version packed inside.

Clone Hunter is asking if anyone has for sale - either by accident or in general.

Then again, I could be totally off base... :D
