2003 Clone Wars Republic Gunship
« on: January 18, 2003, 10:20 PM »
A new "Clone Wars" Gunship is coming out sometime this year, and there's rumors that it will have more fire-power to it... I am happy with my Gunship, but I would love if the following changes/etc were made...

+ Cabin Size +
I HATE how small the cabin size is. I can barely fit my Clone Pilot in the cabin. Hopefully Hasbro will widen the holes a little bit.

+ Turrets +
I HATE the ball-turrets that come with the Clone Pilot. I'd like to see some turrets like what are on the Gunships wing, that is, clear with electronics and wires visible on the inside. I've seen some nice customs of a Clone in turret, but I doubt Hasbro would make a large turret as a pack-in.

+ Pack-In Clones +
I'm pretty sure the "Clone Wars" Gunship will come with 2 re-hased Clone Pilots along with their turrets... No changes to the figures or the turrets, of course.
What'd I'd like to see packed in is...

2 Clone Pilots (rehash)
2 turrets similar to wing turrets
1 Speeder Bike (rehash)
1 Clone Scout

How about you guys who are interested? What do you wanna see?

If the thing came with some pilots or even some plain white troopers that would be great.  Even better if the were not pre posed in the wierd stance

Also a redesigned turret ball like you mentioned would be a super addition.

I think that when Hasbro promises more fire power they might be adding electronic's, maybe it will make a few noises now **whoop d f'n do**.The gunship totally looks like it was originally supposed to come with electronics in the first place, or they just included a cool spot on the wings to stash pot :). I wouldn't hold my breath on the pack-in's.Come On Hasbro, please prove me wrong ::)

I've seen a wholesale sheet that indicates there will be two different Gunships issued for this year.  The Clone Wars version appears to be only different packaging, and possibly an alternate paint job.  The wholesale price for this is $22.

Then, there's the Gunship with added firepower.  This one wholesales for approximately $30 or more.  It's probably the one that includes 3 Clone Troopers and may have electronics.  There are already battery sized compartments in the base of the wings, and the rocket launchers on the top of the ship seem light capable.  Just look at the transparent rockets...perfect lightpipe.

 I would like to see the turrets on the side have a green light effect to them when you press something. Sound effects are a given vote but actually i would love to hear  the "lift off " sound that the gunships made in the film. I thought that was a very cool sound effect.

  Now if only Hasbro could make a SW astroid that blew apart and made the " sonic charge " effect..  ...yeah buddy...

Very interesting, Nick. I didn't know that anyone had a clue about the price range of the 'added fire-power' Gunship. Thanks for posting this, I for one have been educated! $30 isn't bad at all for an electronic Gunship with a couple of Clones.  8)

The key word used by Nick though was wholesale - not retail.  They'll unfortunately be more expensive when they hits the store floors, for sure.

I will be picking up one of these ships. It is painted different so therefore to me it is a new ship. If it was just a repack with no new paint deco ect I would pass. But it appears to be battledamaged. :)

I already have X2 Clone Pilots for this ship.
For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com

being that I only recently GOT the origonal gunship and other than paint, this is nothing new, I'll pass. But the ship is STILL so cool anyways!

My choice of the next gunship would be gray and white!
