I stopped at four gunships. They just might have got me to buy my fifth.

I would have bought the Lucky Lekku one, but it was selling for too much. Besides, it's even more niche than some of the other repaints. So unless I can find that one for a good price, this Crumb version looks like a pass for me as well.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

Looks interesting, but I don't like how the window slats in the doors are solid...

No.  They're open, so that people can see out of them.  In reality, the gunships on the tv show have doors that open in the center, one half moving forward, the other moving back.

but I remember one scene from the movie where they are closed, when anakin and the clones are attacking the monastery to rescue jabba's son. The doors are closed and then they jump out of the gunship to go attack the monastery, its right before they try to climb up the mountain.

new pics

Looks very nice - even though the pics aren't the greatest...I might cave and get one last gunship and call it a day.

Yeah, it does look nice painted up, but I'm still going to pass on it.

I already have the original Episode II Gunship, but I have to admit this one looks pretty cool.  I have no idea how people can possibly display all of these gunships, let alone the other vehicles though.

I had seriously considered getting one of these (which would be my fourth, after the original 2002 version, the 2005 ROTS green version, and the 2006 ARC Gunship version) until I saw the price on the SDCC placard in the display case.  $59.99 for this?  That's literally double what it cost when it was first released, and 33% higher than it cost just last fall at Wal-Mart.  I'll just hope that I can find two of the Gunship pod Battle Packs to outfit my 2002 version and call it a day on these.

I saw some pretty grainy photos and thought it said $69.99.  Either way - too much for me, but it's going to cost me a fortune to outfit all of my Gunships with pods.  Thanks Hasbro.   ::)

Just one of the reasons you lost a carded collector.   :)

The Command, AOTC, and ROTS versions are sitting loose in my office floor.  The Saga and Legacy versions are not even out of the box yet.  They definitely take up a lot of room, and I'm at a loss as to how best to keep them.  I know I'm a sucker because I'll end up getting this new one too.
