Edit: It says figures not included, if you look really hard at the bottom left corner. It's still pretty cool, though.

This is the coolest thing I've seen in a while.  It's a bummer the clones aren't included (especially with that price...) but they sure wouldn't mock up something like the Gatlin Clone just for the box art.  I gotta believe these are going to show in the basic line somewhere.

I have heard from quite a few people from other sites that there will be a Battlepack featuring these Clone Troopers.

Yeah, it like similar poses in from the exclusive Target Clonetrooper 5 pack awhile back.  That's what I thought it was at first.  Anyway, I still don't have a Republic Gunship so maybe I will bite on this one.  I probably would have got the ROTS one if it had stayed around long enough for me to cough up the money.

****** A! This is awesome!

   

I already have the ROTS version (which I don't at all regret buying, BTW). And I really have no room for this or the ROTS one for that matter. But I simply must have this!

Incidentally, the ARC minigunner had previously been rumored as some sort of exclusive for this year ... it's on one of the lists posted somewhere in here.

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.

How sure?

Let us keep in mind that this is a TRU exclusive, so it should be more reasonably priced than Target's exclusives. So I'd guess $40 or $45 at the most. If I find it, and I usually see all TRU exclusives that come out, i'll get it.

Once again, the cost is $45.  We know this because the gunship is up for pre-order at Amazon.com right now!

Sure, there is still a chance it will be less in the stores, but the last 5-6 TRU exclusive items have had the same price on-line as in the stores - Jedi Starfighters, Hoth Battlepack, etc.

Everyone seems to have missed that the preorder page says it is only available online.

That little thinger means nothing though as it ends up on almost half of the TRU/Amazon exclusive items.

In fact, it's on the Hoth Battle Pack page and that was available in the retail stores.  I think sometimes the Amazon web monkey gets that badge mixed up with this one:    :-\

Oh dear god...somebody has to promise they will possibly stock up on ARC Troopers and sell them or trade them or something or other.
I am not really excited about that gunship though.
I think it looks too cartoonish, but if I see it...I will buy it!
I'm still hoping for a v-wing.

I think that gatling gun in the Clone's hands is from the GI Joe Spy Troops Roadblock.

Man, that looks pretty tempting, but $45 is a bit much.

They'd better release a new ARC trooper at around the same time as this gunship.

The chin paint on the first Blue Arc trooper is wider than the other two. Iiiiinteresting.
