As much as I hate to bump really old threads, I wanted to talk about the ARC-170.

After over two years of admiring pics of this ship online, I finally bought a 170 NIB for $25 shipped to my door. I can't say that I was disappointed by the toy, but I can gladly say that this was the best new vehicle of the ROTS action figure line.

The "action handle" or whatever on the bottom of the ship is really cool, and makes "flying" the 170 around the house way too tempting(and fun!) I like to drop bombs on my droid tanks.:P The screw holes don't bother me at all, but the four extra stickers and lack of weathering do.

Overall, I'm glad I got this version of the ARC-170 instead of that Target/Clone Wars repaint piece of crap, and I'd gladly buy a second if repainted correctly. (i.e. Titanium blue paint scheme, ROTS paint scheme w/ V-Wing style weathering, etc.)

I agree its a great vehicle from the modern line if not the greatest. I would love to see a weathered version as well. The space whale version is pretty lame. I will buy one because "I have to" but I wish they would do an upgrade deco ala Y-Wing style.

Yeah... I ended up with the ROTS one but never picked up the ROTS Gunship.  I then picked up the Deco-Gunship and then found an ROTS Gunship for a good price.   I picked up the Deco-170 just to go with the gunship...
Once I get them hung from the ceiling I think they'll make nice paired sets

After opening the TAC one, I'm now regretting that I never got one of these to open.
