Confront the Separatist Crisis
Drawing from the wealth of Star Wars lore, the Clone Wars are part of a back-story of intragalactic unrest that set the stage for the original trilogy. They are portrayed in a new animated movie, TV series, and video game, which help fill in gaps that appear between the other movies. With this set, you can be part of the action. Take up the battle against the Separatists using the Republic Attack Gunship, a heavily armed and armored Clone Wars troop carrier that's ready to invade even the most hostile terrain.

Included Lego figures represent the well-known characters Obi-Wan Kenobi, Plo Koon, Asajj Ventress, and Commander Cody. Of course, there's Clone Trooper mini-figures as well. There's a cool speeder bike that deploys from the back, and multiple decals to create different gunships for your army. Arm your favorite figure with a lightsaber in Jedi blue-green or Sith red, and let the intragalactic battles begin. There's even a healing chamber that helps your characters recharge after a tough battle.

Preparing Your Gunship for Battle
With 1,034 pieces in 18 bags and two instruction booklets, the Republic Attack Gunship took our eight-year-old tester just under eight hours to build. He broke the construction up into three shorter sessions to make it more enjoyable and had only one slight difficulty. While Lego instructions are known for being colorful and accurate, there were a handful of pieces in our booklet that appeared clear when they were in fact yellow. This didn't do anything to diminish our appreciation for this model. Our tester struggled to find anything negative to say, and he gave this ship a fun factor score of one million, based on a scale of one to 10!

Cockpits in unexpected locations on the wings, unique sliding doors, the zoomer buggy, and an emergency capsule for sick and injured characters ranked high on the list of cool features. That's not all though. There's also a front side compartment that opens so you can remove the command station, eight positionable flick-fire missiles on top, two rotating missiles in front, and a top compartment which opens to provide access to the spy droids.

When asked if there was a downside to this gunship, our tester could only reply, "It's the best ever! I just like the whole set." Soon after completing construction, he had a big battle with all the ships in his collection and commented on how this set includes updated pieces that he's never seen before.

Even though there's plenty of features on just the Republic Attack Gunship to hold a child's interest for a long time, we can imagine how much fun the set would be with a whole group of friends and siblings plus all their Star Wars ships. We also appreciate the way that Lego systems never limit imaginative play. All the cool hardware that makes up the Republic Attack Gunship can be used to build any structure or vehicle your child dreams up.

Customer Reviews:

  • Heart breaker!
    This toy has been a heartache for my son. It was for his 12th birthday. It falls apart very easily and is not durable or playable at all. He is literally in tears over this. His best friend up the street has the same one and is very durable I am wondering if he has done something wrong maybe, but he has at least 20 different Lego star wars sets like this and the others all seem to hold up well. I think I will be contacting them....more info
  • Quality Lego product
    This was a Christmas gift for my 8 year old son. He was extremely delighted when he saw it. Assembly took him about 2 days. This toy is very playable as it doens't come apart easily like some lego toys do. It is a very good design and captures the Gunship pretty accurately. ...more info
  • A great model, my fiance loved it!
    I bought this for Christmas for my fiance. He absolutely loves it. He said he had to make a few changes to the design to make it more durable but otherwise it is an excellent model for a Star Wars and Lego fan such as him. It came with a ton of extras and fun little things like that.

    It seems like an advanced model to build, a beginner (adult or child alike) would probably have difficulty with it....more info
  • Very pleased, Great item...
    I was able to purchase this item on Amazon for less than any where else. The free shipping was very quick and arrived in plenty of time for Christmas. Me and my son were both very happy. Great item for a Lego & Star Wars fan......more info
  • Great product, son loves it.
    This is a great product. My son is a Stars Wars junkie and enjoyed the challenge of putting it togethor and it looks great in his collection....more info
  • Worried that this set is fragile?! (Best set ever!)
    When I got this, I was kind of nervous because I'd read other reviews that it was fairly fragile and just wouldn't hold well together. Well BOY WAS I WRONG! This set is awesome, it's a fun set and my parents have to keep me in a straightjacket (joke) to keep me from continuously building and playing! The overall gunship took me about 4 hours to build. The design was good, but you have to look over the instructions carefully. I've read that some people say the speeder bike in this is the best one that Lego? has come up with - that is 100% true. The thing that I didn't like was that there were so many pieces that sometimes the pieces were hard to find - but that's just the nature of kits like this! I'd recommend the Gunship for kids looking for a challenge, don't give up easily and have the time to spend building it. To sum it all up, this was the best kit I've bought yet! ...more info
  • lego gunship
    My son loved it. There were a lot of little doors and windows to open and retrieve the droids....more info
  • The best Lego Star Wars ever!
    My son must have ~25 lego star wars kits and this is the best one ever! We enjoyed putting it together, together and he's been playing with it every day for a few weeks now without any parts being cannabalized for imagination based projects. This is better even than the Lego Star Wars Slave 1 kit which was the prior favorite at our house....more info
  • 9 Year old was thrilled
    The lego was given as a birthday present and he loves lego and star wars.1,034 pieces and he has put the 5 figures together already....more info

  • AMAZON Selling Defective LEGO Sets Missing Lego Piece Bags WATCH OUT!!!!
    I paid $120 for this toy, and it was given to my son as his most desired Christmas present. However, the set was missing three bags of legos, where we could not complete the set. It was a big disappointment for my 8 year old son. I had bought the toy in mid October, and by late December the return window with Amazon had expired. I would be charged a 15% to 50%!!! restocking fee. This could amount to a lot of money because the toy was expensive to begin with. So, if I mailed it in, I could have lost $60 on this defective LEGO set. I contacted CHASE VISA, and disputed the charge. CHASE VISA refunded my account in February and I received a notice of the decision in the mail. Now in March, I get a phone call from CHASE VISA telling me that AMAZON is requesting for me to mail back the set. By now, the box is gone and the pieces scattered. I lost to AMAZON and I guess to CHASE VISA too. I am not refunded the cost of the defective LEGO set after all. I feel bad that I spent $120 on a LEGO set for a big Christmas present which turned out to be such a downer and waste of time...a waste of money.... ...more info
  • What a disappointment...
    My son bought this with his birthday money (11 years old) and wishes he never did. It falls apart easily and isn't playable. It took him 3 days to build it and after only playing with it one time it's sitting in pieces on his bedroom floor. Unless you're looking to build this and use it as a display save your money and buy something else....more info
  • Lego Republic Gunship review
    My son loved this Lego model, though it does not stay together as securely as the MTT. It needs to be picked up in a certain way so that the bottom pieces don't come off when lifting....more info
  • The best got BETTER!
    Some people have been saying that this set is not very durable, and falls apart esily. I don't want to be rude, but all the reviews saying this occured when the set belonged to a fairly young child. This set is very durable, and meant for MILD play. This is definately one of LEGO's best SW sets ever!...more info
  • Grandson loved it!
    This was a birthday gift for my 9 year old grandson. He absolutely loved it!He stayed up until 1 a.m. to finish it....more info

  • star wars republic gunship
    i got this for my son for christmas. he had to have it. it took a while to put together. i am dissapointed that the lego company does not label the bags 1, 2 or 3 like they do in the others sets. there were alot of pieces that took a long time to find in this one. once you put it together it is not as big as you would expect. but that is ok because when you try to open doors to play with it it falls apart. my son wants a big one like the death star but i don't think we will get it because none of the star wars sets have numbered bags. we put together the police station which is large but did not take that long because the bags are numbered. ...more info
