    ...if TLG would ever consider UCS ST sets...
    Isn't everyone eagerly awaiting a UCS Kylo Ren Shuttle?

    Huh, does the Razorcrest count?  It's post-OT...

    I don't think they can really do this amazing vehicle justice for less than $400.

    Maybe if they add in some of those giant fire pieces and spring loaded launchers from the 4+ city line?

    Stick it on an ideas.lego.com poll - someone will vote for it.

    TLG should have made the Gunship the Clone Wars version, fully enclosed, with the doors built closed. Then the doors would look properly flush and the lack of troops in the troop compartment of a troop transport wouldn't have been so obvious....
    ^^ Agreed.
    At first glance I liked the look of this model, but after reading several reviews and studying the photos I think the door issue would bug the hell out of me.  It seems lazy and phoned-in.  I originally voted for the TIE Bomber, so this is an easy pass for me.  Fingers crossed for a stellar AT-AT.

    If the At-At crosses its fingers, it’s likely going to fall down and could endanger any nearby headless At-St.

    Too bad the Gunship didn't come with a few extra parts and an alternate option for the build so that it could be built either open sided or closed.  My personal preference would be to have it closed in as a display model.

    Thank The Maker that it’s not some hidden Comic Con exclusive!

    (The meditation chamber might be though)

    I saw a price tag for #75296 on a shelf in Walmart yesterday. No sets, just the tag. But I got #75316 Mandalorian Starfighter at a different Walmart. I was looking for clearance sets, didn't see much, but it was worth trying! :)

    I like the new gunship and the scale or the doors don’t bother me much. It won’t be long before someone has instructions up to make the doors fully close.

    Like @CapnRex101 said upthread the choice of minifigs is hard to understand. First, only 2 minifigs in such a huge model. To me there clearly needs to be a pilot. I’m not upset about the lack of a P2 Cody, but how about a few more clones? It is a transport ship for clones after all.

    I'm kinda glad they didn't go with putting exclusive figures in there. At least, not exclusive figures of major characters you can't get elsewhere. I'd love to have a 1989 Batman, but can't afford the Batmobile/Batwing and can't bring myself to spend $50 on him.

    I do agree that a pilot and some more basic clones should have been included, though.

    Windu was a good choice for a Jedi in my opinion since Geonosis was the scene where he first got his time to shine. That, and you can still get him from other sets.
