I think Hasbro might be going a little too far with the large items being sold on day 1 lol. As cool as this ship may end up I already have the other clone wars one and ultimatly have no more room for another.

Neat deco choice...  I'm not buying one, but neat deco.  I'd imagine this'll give a choice to the masses NOT buying the big stuff.  I honestly think the big stuff is really still a toss-up as to how well it may perform.  I don't think we can carry those big item sales, honestly.

This though, may be a smart move for Hasbro...  Pretty cheap for them to just crank more out with a new deco, and definitely more affordable to the frugal moms/dads.

Cool! I would love to have a couple of these on my shelf, as i came in to the collecting game a little late and missed out on these.  I think i prefer this deco over the painted shark nose deal.

I definitely prefer this deco. From what I understand we have two or three choices for the decals on the front. Twi' Lek as we see, Kowakian Monkey Lizard (Think Salacious Crumb), and possibly one more. So it will be cool to deco these how we want. I'm hoping these is a choice to NOT deco these and keep it plain if we want. I still need 2-3 more gunships in the correct movie colors. This would do if I'm not held to the front end deco.

I'll still get one for sure though.

Wow, deco number 5. Do we know for sure if this is a July 26th item?

Well we knew this vehicle would be put out there.  At least it's just an exclusive.  But yeah, Hasbro is going nutty with all the vehicle releases.  I would not mind buying this but I have to save for the Falcon, AT-TE, and Spider Droid.

Yeah, it will be interesting to see how it goes with all of these vehicle releases.  Even if they aren't all coming out on July 26th, there's going to be a heck of a lot of vehicles for the last half of the year.  I've only got the original (AOTC/Saga) gunship, but that's all I'll have room for, so I'm happy with that.  Although of course out of scale, I do think its a pretty nifty toy.  The one thing cool about this new version (aside from the alternate decals), is if it would have full closing doors.  I don't expect it to be too much different aside from deco though.  It seems like WM and TRU each have their own "multiple deco" vehicles coming this year, with this and the Dagger Squad B-Wing.  Hasbro does seem to be paying a lot of attention to vehicles lately, which is kind of neat.

I'm reserving judgement on the deco until we see the actual gunship versus the representational art that's on the box. These days there seems to be more and more of a discrepancy between the two. Sure we'll get the exclusive label sheet, but I can see this being not much more in terms of weathering than the previous releases in a new box.

I get that it's like the WW II thing but that doesn't seem to translate into the whole SW/clones being raised in labs rapidly grown probably never even seen a woman, besides Kamonian.  At least the men in WW II had a life before/during the war that girlfriends/lives.  Them being Mando raised the tiger shark whatever it is on the ARC seems more appropriate, or anything else more geared towards violence.
