I noticed from the Toy Fair preview on Star Wars.com that Hasbro will re-release the Rebublic Gunship for ROTS with a new paint job. I wonder if Lego will follow suit?

I didn't pick it up the first time but I wish I would have.

I doubt it. The RGS is gone now!

Shoot! I guess I'll get one from eBay or BrickLink.

Here's a picture of the Hasbro version of the new ROTS Gunship:

Perhaps Lego will release this version? Otherwise there probably isn't any more big ROTS sets they could release. It would also be a good way to get lots of the new Clones.

I'd probably get one if they made it. But I'd say wait until the movie comes out. I bet this isn't the only deco-variation we'll see of the Gunship.

Going by LEGO's recent history, and as there are still two years left for this licence, I say your chance of re-release is quite good.

Blech. Too much lime.

I would actually guess this is just Hasbro trying to make some money and that the ship doesn't actually show up in the movie with this color scheme.

What's the baby in the bag dangling from the back?

That would be cool if they re released it. In my opinion the 7163 was the best ship in the Star Wars Lego line.

In...in that set. Is that a... an ARC trooper? Please tell me this is true! They did said that they would have an EU character in it.

I actually got the Gunship Lego set on eBay this morning so $120 shipped! The person spelled Republic (Rupubec) and Lego (Lago) wrong. I've got a few things cheap on Lego searching for people who can't spell. Wink

$120 for the RGS is cheap? Confused

That RotS RGS looks weird to me. It's the same color scheme just reversed. Before it was the front gun section that was green, and the trim was red. Now it's just backwards.

I also think there's a very good chance of a re-release, seeing as there's 3 different sets with TIE Fighters...

Um, I see yellow and no green, Repoort. It could be my colour definitions, though.

I am hoping they will make a new (cheaper) republic gunship in ANY colour scheme before the license is out. It would be stunning!

Looks yellow-green to me. Very Happy

But seriously... It doesn't look yellow as in Anakin's airspeeder yellow, but it's not green as in baseplate green, either. It's a funky mix of both.

Hmmm, it has a strange color on the nose, kind of like purple but with less blue and more red or something.

You guys are making it WAY too easy for chicks to stereotype us guys with the color thing...

Yellow-green?
Purple with less blue and more red?

Haha.

Definitely looks like a dark red and lime to me in that picture, just like the old RGS. Just reversed.

I do find it odd they just switched the colors... I wonder who came up with that.
I can picture someone pitching the idea to ol' George

Some guy: What if we kept it the same colors... except... backwards?
George: GENIUS! Now let's make Darth Vader computer generated!

I think George has lost his mind, actually. Who in their right mind would think Jar Jar was a good idea?

I like the ROTS Gunship. I'd buy a Lego version of that.

Nice paint job, and no they won't rerelese it. It's just too new.

I don't think it would have anything to do with new. There was a re-coloring of the Gunship after AOTC that was far better than this one, and Lego didn't take it up. I don't think Lego is into changing colors around, and I don't think they want to risk releasing another totally redesigned gunship that may do badly because of the other pricey sets being released.

Judging by the "Haha." I'd say that's what he was going for as well.

Wait, let me make sure I have gotten it right. Its called what again? Oh, Humor! Thanks for the lesson.
