Do I need a 4th Gunship? No. Am I going to get this one? Probably. It is cool.

This is the best vehicle of the modern line!

GORGEOUS!!!  And to think I JUST got an ROTS gunship....oh, well.

And you know what - Hasbro's smart for charging so much because they know EVERYONE will want it anyway!  Brilliant, greedy bastards.

The Gunship...  I honestly could give a rat's ass about it.  I do like the paintjob, but I give more praise to the CW artists than Hasbro.  That was just incredible design...  Nice pulling that from the World War 2 Flying Tiger in WW2, or the 1st Cavalry Nam Huey's...  It's rockin' looking, no doubt.

That said, my highlight was the Clones.  If they do redo ARC Troopers (I'm really hoping they do both blue and red, since a Sergeant needs his Troopers), and they do that Clone MIni-Gunner...  Man I'll wet my pants I think.  It could only be better if they did the Clone with the quad-pom-pom guns and a rocket launcher accessory.  I've been hoping they do this....  now it's close to a reality.  We need new ARC's to replace those originals. 

We need more Clone Wars (realistic sculpts) in general.  Almost the whole 1st line of figures needs redone, and articulated well.

jesse, couldn't agree more.  i've put a halt on doing my custom ARC's until I see if they actually release these guys.

I never have liked the original ARC Trooper design, just too cartoonish and childish for me, here is the design I customized for an ARC Trooper.  This may not be cartoon or comic accurate... but it's much more realistic I think -



And in a way, this Gunship does have a cartoony feeling too.  I think that once I get one, it's going to need at the very least a dark wash to make it look more real.

I'll get one, just because. At least  didn't shell out $160 for a custom painted one.

The price alone makes it an easy pass for me :)

Yeah, $45 is highway robbery. I pee on myself when I think of how I could've picked up the ROTS one when they clearenced them at KB for $10.

My KB clearenced ROTS Gunships for $10 near the beginning of November. For some reason I didn't purchase any, and I checked back after Black Friday and they were gone.

Well, if you buy the CW one, you'll still come out $5 ahead if you consider that the retail price should be $30. ;)

$45.00 is hard, but 2006 seems to be year of experimenting just how high they can go. Well, they'll get my 45 for that ship. The clone wars cartoons were a nice diversion that fit the continuity well. Like the OTC line, the CW should be finite and you can actually get one of everything without adding on or selling your home.

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

Take a good look at the pilots. They look like new sculpts, so, why isn't one in the battle pack with the other clones? Perhaps these pilots are fixed to the ship.
