Do you know how much shipping would be for one? Yes Im that desperate. The one Gunship I bid on ebay went to 48 bucks.

You're in Cali right?  Lemme go check tomorrow or Thursday for one.  I don't even recall if they run $29 or $39 CAD, but if it's the former, I know even with shipping we can beat that price.  At $29 ($35 with taxes ::)) that makes it about $28 US and shipping would be about $15 US, maybe a little more, maybe a little less.  I've no problem helping you out.  Maybe we can even swing a trade, if you're willing to offset my higher shipping by a bit?  Only looking so that we spend about the same amount of money on the trade, shipping included.  LMK :)

Quick question too: was this paint scheme actually in the film? From what I remember, all the Gunships that were "in focus" were the traditional AOTC-era Red paint detail.

I don't recall seeing it either. Hasbro probably figured (correctly IMO) that collectors would rather buy a color variant than a straight rerelease, and most kids wouldn't notice the difference.

Im open to anything actually. If you find one let me know. Do you like sending it loose would offset the shipping price or no?

No, sending it loose wouldn't do a thing for the price.  It's mostly by weight and the box doesn't add too much.  I did find one this morning at TRU, but it was $39.99 so $45 after taxes (that's CAD, so $36 USD).  I'm going to check some other retailers.

Still haven't found one. Had a dream the other night I found two of them but alas it was just a dream.

I saw one at the end of April when I bought my ARC-170, and I haven't seen one since. I'm still not too fond of the color scheme, and I already have the AOTC one. I passed on the CW version and if I ever see this one again, I'm sure I won't buy it. They just take up too much room.

I've only seen one too. I saw it once April 2nd in the morning after midnight madness, I bought the Arc instead because I thought it would be harder to find. Kinda wish I would have bought the gunship and picked up one of the 100s of Arcs I've seen since. :P

I saw a few on Midnight Madness, and like an idiot figured they would be readily available and that I would just pick one up after a few weeks since I was spending so much money on everything else that evening.

Turns out I haven't seen one since.

I think I saw the same one that SLC saw.  Which I had picked it up as well.

 a month ago late at nite at WalMart I saw a case labeled ROTS GUNSHIP on the pallets to be stocked....so, thinking it WAS the republic gunship..I asked an employee to open the case.... NO, just two dumb arc170's(not that their lame ..just not what I expected.) I think around April 2nd the cases had actual green gunships packed with an Arc170 but then since they seem to not be producing the gunships anymore the Arc170's are still being packed in the "gunship" labeled cases
