THIS IS MY SET REVIEW FOR THE REPUBLIC ATTACK GUNSHIP
Name: Republic Attack Gunship
Age recomendation: 9-14... RUBBISH!!! IT'S FOR ANYONE AGED 3-333!!
Lego's Description: Send in the clones…and the Jedi Knights!
Take the battle to the Separatists with the Republic Attack Gunship™! This heavily armed and armored Clone Wars troop carrier can fly and land in any battlefield or hostile terrain. Features include opening troop bay doors, removable command station and healing chamber, positionable cannons, spy droids, flick missiles, a speeder bike that deploys from the back, and multiple decals to create different gunships for your army. But will even Obi-Wan Kenobi and Plo Koon be enough to stop the sinister Asajj Ventress and her double Sith lightsabers?
Here is an overall picture of the set and the instructions.
There are two booklets for the instructions. It's a fairly large set!
This is the ship iteslf. It has a good color scheme and some nice little details.
There are five figures.
2.A Clone Trooper.
4.Obi-Wan in Clone Wars armour.
If you are a figure collector then this is a great set. It is the only set in which you can currently get Plo Koon, Cody and Ventress! Those three can'not be got anywhere else!
Inside you can store the speeder bike that comes with the set. It fits quite nicely in the back leaving plenty of space for troops. There is also a neat little gun rack in the middle.
The back panel that the speeder rests on opens up like a door so that the speeder can come out.
These are the cockpits. They are a nice design but it is a shame that the set dosen't come with another two clones to man the wing turrets.
The set comes with two dferent decals that you can apply to the side door of the ship. This is the one that I used.
This is the other decal that could be used.
This is one of the wing turrets. As I said earlier, It would be nice to have another two troops to sit in these because they look great and are nicely detailed.
Here are the flick-fire missiles that are situated on top of the ship. They look a bit clumsy sticking out on top like they do but for playing purposes they are fine.
Here is a picture of the side doors closed over. The doors themselves are a nice design.
Here are the doors open so that you can see inside again.
Here is sre tow of the four hidden storage compartments near the top of the ship. They open up so that you can store any extra guns, armour or anything in there! They aren't very big so get full quite quickly.
Here is a top view of the ship so that you can see the engines. These are another part of this set that are nicely built. Here you can also see where the flick-fire missiles are.
Here is a rear view of the engines. You can also see the huge turret that protrudes from the back of the ship above the speeder door.
Here you can see the top hatch opening and the two spy droids coming out. The droids are also nicely made.
The little side hatch opens up so that the healing/bacta tank can come out.
Here is Plo Koon standing by a clone healing in the tank. The tank iteslf is well designed.
Then the larger side hatch opens so that the mobile command center can come out.
Here is the command center in use. It, as well ,is a nice design with a great new control panel.
Here is a picture for size comparison. That is a 30cm ruler next to it.
Even though Lego insists that it is...
This is just an overall view of the left side.
Here is an overall view of the back.
Here is a view of the right side.
Great figures only available in this set.
Lots of useful pieces for building other mocs with.
A fun build!
Lots of peices.
It is VERY easy to modify.
Great value for money!
Flimsy frame. It fell apart twice while I was just making this review! I also caused me to fall halfway down my stairs! Because I was transporting it downstairs when it fell apart and I stepped on part of it and tripped... but I'm Ok now!
Not enough figures included. It needs more clones.
The ball turrets that are seen sticking out from the side of the ship in the films that are included in the original version of this are missing.
The side doors don't quite shut properly so that is rather annoying! Look at the picture below to see what I mean!
