Clone Wars repaint of ARC-170 3 3/4
« on: August 22, 2006, 12:42 PM »
I would love to see a clone wars repaint of the ARC-170.  The ARC were a bear to find in my neck of the woods and seem to sell well on E-Bay.  Anybody else interested?

I seem to remember seeing a Titanium picture from ComicCon that had a Clone Wars re-paint of the ARC-170, so I don't think that it's an unreasonable request to see it in 3 3/4 scale.  They released the Republic Gunship in both Titanium and 3 3/4 this year, so why not?

Found this at GH:



There is also a Star Wars Transformers version in the works as well:



Again, I don't think that a 3 3/4 inch version is out of the question.

I couldn't find the Titanium picture here (not for lack of trying), that's why I went to GH.  OF COURSE I'd like to get my info here, and post it accordingly. ;)

And I know that's the Transformers version, that's why I said it was...

Thanks for watching my back HoTF.

I thought he said "thanks for washing my back".  That would have been weird :'(
You are never alone when there's a clone.

I Am Sith, I think the problem is that you posted the SAME picture twice in your post...  

You say, "I got this from GH" and then just posted the JD photo of the Transformer.

I think if you go back and post the correct GH Titanium picture you were trying to show, that will clear things up between you and Slothus...

Sorry Jeff, on my screen the first picture is the Titanium and the second is the Transformer.  I just had someone else in my office check it from another computer and I see that it's the same picture.  Very weird that it's showing up correctly for me though.  I'll edit accordingly.

Sorry to everyone else for the confusion.

I agree... I never once saw an ARC-170 for sale in stores...EVER... This really annoyed me as it was the vehicle I wanted the most.

Not a bad idea, I'm sure we'll see it before the end of Star Wars toys.  Hell, we've seen what, four versions of the gunship and six of the starfighter?

I dunno. I'm with Rune, I think they could do a straight re-release of the ROTS one and get away with it.

I think the problem is Hasbro is determined to stay with the starfighter size line for ships. They stated in the last batch of Q and A that many ships (A wing, Y wing) aren't on the table because they wouldn't fit in the current size being offered. I think that's bogus myself, as anyone with an A wing or Y wing can attest that they will fit in the current ships boxes if broken down. If size is the case, the ARC is not likely to see re-release, unless it is an exclusive, meaning TRU most likely and a 45-50 dollar pricetag.
