Well, this is very damn cool looking!



The ARC Troopers look totally new to me, not those lame ones that came out in the Clone Wars line, and the Gatlin Clone looks sweet.  Looks like the blue ARC near the front might be the old one, but the two in the back look different, at least to me.  I'll most definitely get this ship, maybe a new ARC or two, and a few Gatlin Clones I hope.

 :P

Once upon a time, when the Clone Wars Command Gunship was originally released, it had pictures of a "Yellow" Clone Commander on it to everyone's surprise.  The "Yellow" Clone Trooper was not available at the time, but he showed up later in the Wal-Mart Value 2-packs.  

I'd have to say that that the clone(s) on this box are in a similar boat.   Even though they are not included with the Gunship, I would guess that most definitely will be out sometime this year.

Good point Jeff.

Something I noticed, the red ARC Trooper almost looks like a souped up version of the EE Clones or a custom I've seen somewhere... notice there don't appear to be any antennas on the helmets of the front two ARC troops.

Don't worry - if there were figures included with the ship, the box would clearly state it.

i think that this ship is just awsome. even if it does have a higher price i still think it's worth it. the paint job looks great and the new figures look awsome too. i think it's really cool to see hasbro making eu stuff.

the red arc looks sick and the gattling gun clone looks cool too, he could mabey use a bit more blue on him when it gets released though.

CHEWIE- i think that all the regular blue clones are the old clone wars ones, the front defintetley, and if you look at the back 2 arc's feet, they have the same boots as the front blue arc, just an observation! :D

Kickass. The ship looks great, but I'm not crazy about the price. Here's hoping retail sells it for $30, like ROTS. And here's hoping that it's easy to find as well.

That Red ARC is DEFINATELY a kitbash from the EE Red Trooper. The Blue ARCs are the same ones we saw 3 years ago in the original CW line, and the pilots look like white Evolutions Clones with the pilot helmets. That other Heavy Gunner looks like a kitbash of the AT-RT Driver and an SA Clone. Still looks good though!

Yep, and in states in the lower left corner… Figures Not Included.

Good luck - it's TRU exclusive and it looks like their price is set....at $45.

The website usually reflects the B&M price - and I doubt you'll find it on clearance.

Very, very nice. I definately am going to try to get oe of these bad boys. For the ARC troopers, the red one looks like a #33 clone commander and an EE red clone, the next one looks like the old version, the gunner looks like a #33 clone commander and an AT-RT driver mix, the next trooper looks like and old version, and the last one may be old, but I think it might be a #33 clone commander/EE blue clone mix, since he is holding a DC-15 rifle, while the Clone Wars ARC troopers had those special ops gunns with the straps.

That's a quality exclusive repaint. Finally, one that makes complete sense and comes from a popular EU source. Looks top notch.

I'm very pleased with the figures too. I'm sure they'll be carded as part of the standard line, but I'd be pretty happy with a Battle Pack as well.
