CW Separatist Droid Gunship
« on: December 5, 2009, 03:34 AM »
We've got a much larger, and more detailed gallery of the prototypes posted on our front page...  Feel free to check them out:


Clicky to check it out.

Same with the Swamp Speeder, I figure the Separatist Gunship Proto can reside here for a while...

This item, while neat I'm sure, isn't as high on my wishlist and I'm not counting on a good scale with it.  It looks hyper detailed though, seems to have a couple cool features to it...  I'm sure folks wanting this piece of Sep hardware are going to be ecstatic!

Am I the only one who thinks this is going to show up in the TCW line? It is mega cool either way, but this seems like something we are likely to see on the show this season at some point.

I agree - I think they'll put the Droid Gunship and the Swamp Speeder both in the Clone Wars line.

In the grand scheme of things, since they ship Legacy Vehicles with Clone Wars Vehicles, it really doesn't matter.

Yeah, it's more our board's cleanliness more than anything, but I figure anything realistic looking can chill here for now...  :)  Nobody said I was good at keeping the boards clean either though.  I probably shouldn't even had the power to remove stuff because I tend to goof up.

I'm very excited about this. Hopefully this isn't something that was scrapped. I've liked the saucer design since seeing this ship in the Battlefront games.

This is another cool one. Nice to see that we'll be getting a bunch of new Mid-sized ships next year.

Anyone notice the cockpit joint? This IS going to hold a droid pilot!

That's cool. I like the way Hasbro has incorporated a cockpit into just about every CIS ship/vehicle. Octuptarra droid, check. Snail droid, check, now the droid control ship.

I bet it comes with a Animated droid pilot (or regular animated battle droid).

Even if it doesn't come with a figure, I'm getting it, providing it's less than $50 (and hopefully no more than $35-same as the Octupatarra droid.

I think it looks nice...  It's hard to say what exactly this is going to turn up in though.  If it's substantially large enough that I can bite on it being accurately scaled, then I'm down for at least one of them.  This was probably the least interesting of the proto images we saw...  The oddly colored one we posted shows a lot of the detail though, and it's pretty substantial there.  There's a lot to like, plus it's a flying separatist thing...  I guess it appeals to me just because they've gotten the shaft a lot.

I figure if the scale's right I'm down for one at least.  I'm not so sure on the scale is all now.

We got a couple more images of this ship, maybe showing a little more detailing, but overall it's pretty much the same.  I really think there's a cockpit on it though, by these photos.

There are new leaked photos of what I assume is the finished product of this and Cad Bane's starfighter up now on Yakface, courtesy of Jayson. (Thanks dude!)

They both look awesome, although I'm much more excited for the HMP (Heavy Missile Platform) since it is a new sculpt (to me).

Both ships look cool!  I'd even get Cade Bane's ship just because I think Hasbro did an excellent job with their P-38 fighter and the new deco looks neat.

In-Stock at HTS

Since I was ordering the Vos Wave from HTS, I grabbed one of these too.  $18.74 (using the HOLIDAY25 discount code) is a nice price... :)

Great...sold out already. I had this in my cart for a week waiting for them to get the Vos wave to push my order over $50 for the free shipping.  ::)

Now that they get the Vos wave back in stock, the Gunship is sold out. Cursed!

HTS just slapped a shipping sticker on Hasbro's box for this ship as well as my Plo Koon's Fighter (same order, but 2 different tracking numbers)  I know their site doesn't know how to properly pack things for shipping, but this is just wrong.  I open my vehicles mostly, but I like to at least have the boxes in decent shape.  Oh well....Will find out next Wednesday to see how banged up they are.
