I got this for Christmas but haven't taken it out of the box yet.  I more of a "gotta keep it sealed in the box" kind of a guy, but this one will eventually come out for display.

Well I stocked it full of jedi and clones and man it's one cool ship!
It's very easy to put together, snap in the cockpit canopy, wings, missle turrets and drop platform. Apply a few stickers and Voila! It's very sturdy and has good weight to it, in other words - it's not flimsy! The front end missles or whatever they are and the top missles don't shoot out very far  ??? but the thing still rocks! :D
I was able to put the ball cannon from the pilot trooper in it's place and seated the pilot, then put in the speeder bike. Next I loaded jedi into it: Luminara, Kit fisto, plo koon on one side with mace in the doorway wedged in, then on the left side, the red clone at the ball cannon, Ki-adi, sasee tiin and clone speeder guy and stuffed eath koth the doorway. This is probably the coolest and biggest ship I have, since my origianl millennium falcon! ;D ;D ;D

You may want to check out this article by member Koda from Snowtroopers on the Custom Gunship Turret.

I saw Membraneman's custom from what Koda mentions & it looks fantastic.

A plug for ya Koda.

I too am a MOC, MIB kinda guy like dustrho, but to take it out for display.    J/K

I got three of these great ships as soon as I could. I have them opened up and hanging in my Star Wars Room.



Packed full of jedi and Clones they are. I think out of the new trilogy that the GunShip is my favorite thus far.
For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com

I had to have 6 of them.So Far.But I had to go to my nephew to see one open.He enjoys the heck out of it.I'll be making him the custom pods.In my opinion it is the best toy that hasbro has produced yet.The speederbike fits right in the back there.And you can fit so many figures you can't help but to use it for transporting your troops.But thats just my humble opinion.

I just bought a second one of these for $10 at KB Toys so I could open it up.  Man, is this thing freaking cool or what!?  I knew it was going to be big, but I didn't think it would be this big.  This is definitely one of the best ships that Hasbro has made.  I absolutely love this ship, and am happy to have finally been able to take one out of the package.

This is my favorite Star Wars vehicle ever released.  Three must be a magic number BobaBinks, I've got 3 hanging from my ceiling also.  On a couple of them I have the 2 grappling hooks in the back deployed with clones being dropped from the ship.

This vehicle gets a 9.5 out of 10 in my book.

What would make it a 10?

Gun pods with seats for the clone troopers.

A gun pod and clone would make a great deluxe set!   :D
