OK Let me get this straight. I know nobody was expecting this. Please do not rate it low because it is not an MOC. I did this to help my fellow MOCers. If this gets a good response I will continue reviewing with other sets.
Anyways, about the set. It is a rather challenging build, as the bags are not numbered. When you build this, I highly suggest that you divide the pieces into colors (since there are so many white pieces, you should divide those into 2 piles). The dimensions of this set are perfectly matching 1 foot to one stud scale. The minifgs are cool, woth four exclusive to this set. Alright time for the
Pros and Cons.
Only two clones (counting Commander Cody)
No attacking DROIDS
The Plo Koon head just feels cheap (it is rubber)
Obi-Wan's hair is just, well, weird
Lots o' $$$ shelled out
Also, I forgot this on my initial review, the build of it is delicate! It came apart twice when I was modding it!
Well, other than the cons metioned above, everything!
i think they are a bit pricey (about $118 bucks each), but i really like this set ... i got 4 of these. =]

These are okay CONS & PROS .But the republic gunship looks EXTREMELY delicate and is not so good 'cause it doesn't have like ANY clones and Plo Koon is demented ( So is Obi-Wan,I agree) and it doesn't look so cool.But work on your reasons.
I have to say, I really like this set. One of my favorite ships in the Star Wars universe. A great design overall, but they could have lowered the price and increased the minifigs. They probably have a complicated reason for doing that though....
