I have still yet to see any of these. Does TRU have to sell all 8000 of the Falcons in order to put these out or something?

I dunno Diddly but I went to TRU yesterday and noticed that this store, which had a handful of Gunships, now has one I think.  These must be selling to some extent.  I would like to get back to the one store I visited that had a HUGE pile of them to see what the pile has dwindled to now... 

Could be that the ship is just super popular.  I know some guys not that into SW at another board I go to bought the Gunship because they simply thought it looked cool.

These haven't shown up at our local TRU either, but we're also sitting on a fair amount of Falcons.  As much as I like the Gunship, and wouldn't mind picking it up, I just don't have the room with one already on display.  I might change my mind if I see them in person, but I'm not counting on it at this point.

They are sitting at the local TRU's.  I just think they are priced way to high for collectors to either buy or buy a second one. As for clearance . . .  TRU holds onto the product for 2 to 3 years it seems before they clearance.

I bought the Gunship and Battlepack at tru today and together it was $75 :o... for two repaints if you think about it. The gunship is okay, I mean...how many do you need? An add on would have been refreshing, but I'm a Clone Wars fan, so I had to get it.

I dunno, if it was discussed before I was paying attention:

Who actually used this ship? Anyone special use the black CW one?

1. Fordo's team of clones in episode 21 of the CW animated series.

2. Not as far as I know

Found one of these today, hidden behind Tri-Fighters and Jedi Starfighters in ROTS packaging. I am pleased with it. It's a really cool vehicle, and my first Gunship, but good grief, is there ANY figure that can fit in the cockpit?

I discovered that the official Saga Gunship pilot was kinda tight, I switched to the Evolutions AOTC Pilots.

Yeah, I can't fit those guys in there, their elbow armor seems to stick out a bit too much. I can fit the ROTS #6 Clones though.

The saga pilots will fit but it is a squeeze.  I haven't tried the ROTS pilots or Evo pilots yet.

For what its worth, both TRUs in my area still have 4-6 of these gunships.  16 was the most I saw at one time.

I feel so bad that I do not own a single Gunship in any way shape or form.  None of the 4 that have been released.  None of the Titaniums.  Zilch.  What is wrong with me?!  Don't answer that :)

Actually I did want to buy the ROTS version.  But at the time I was all into buying the figures first and then I never saw em again.
