Scale sized turrets?  I wish... but I doubt they are doing that.

Personally, I'd love to see a deluxe pilot figure come out with a turret that could snap onto the Gunships.

 :P

What if the price is higher due to scaled side turrets?

Scale sized turrets? I wish... but I doubt they are doing that.

I doubt they are doing it as well because in the cartoon the side turrets were not there:



So, technically, while the Hasbro toy doesn't match the movie version of the ship, it matches the cartoon version pretty closely.   ;)

I wonder when pics of this are going to surface.  I guess that I will probably want to pick it up, even if it's without any pack in figures.

I'd be sort of tempted by this new gunship as well, if it had that Clone Wars paintjob pictured above.  When it comes down to it though, the combination of the higher price and the fact that these just take up all sorts of room, I'd probably have to pass.  I barely have room for the one I have.  It could be neat though.  I agree, if it is $45 it should come with a couple of figures at least.

If pictures show up and it's in Saga style packaging, then it will most likely find it's way back over here...

OK, so I cut and pasted and merged all our various "Clone Wars Gunship" threads together and re-located them into this here Saga thread since the packaging is most definitely Saga. 

We now return you to our regularily scheduled discussion...   :P

To take a word from Hasbro AWESOME!  I love the recent box art for the Gunships.  Will definately be picking up two, one to keep boxed, and one to open of course.

It looks like it might come with some Clone pack-in's!   Love the Specialist Clone with the mini gun. ;D

I'm kinda glad this is TRU Exclusive.  I've been pretty fortunate to find the recent TRU Exclusives,and that's saying something because I usually don't find squat.

I don't have the room for this, and should avoid it, but I have to admit that the CW paintjob (and possible new figures) definitely have me tempted.  We'll have to see though.  Is anyone else planning on picking this up now that you've seen what is on the way?  The paintjob looks pretty neato to me.

In the RS picture you can clearly see the phrase "Figures not included" on the box.  Since that is the case, I'll pass on this one. 

$45 is just too much for a 4th generation re-hash even with the pretty paint job.   :-\

Kick-Ass!

I'm glad I passed on the lame (overhyped) ROTS version - this version rocks!

The price sucks though... :(

Wonder how we can get the new clones pictured on the box?  Part of the Saga Collection later this year?

But those aren't typical clones (except the blue and red ARCs).  The one in front has what looks like a repainted AT-RT helmet and a gattling gun.  I don't think Hasbro would create that fig just for a picture on a box.  Could he be a new fig?  Wasn't there rumors awhile back of a Heavy Clone Gunner?

I don't have room the one gunship I have, let alone another.  I do like the paint job though.  Looks great.

I guess I overlooked the "figures not included" part, so that might make it easier to pass.  If it were the normal $30 price point, I'd be a little more inclined to pick it up...and plus if I had the space.  Even if these aren't quite to scale, the wingspan of these gunships make them a pain to display, at least in my space.

The Red ARC is SA while the Blue right next to him looks to be the standard CW ARC.  The other two in the back it's hard to tell.  The Clone with the mini gun looks to be SA, and a new sculpt.  I think there is a good chance we may see this Clone down the line somewhere.

I agree, why would Hasbro create this Clone just for some box art?  They must have the mold ready for a possible release.
