    The Republic Gunship can blast the droid army with blistering weapons fire and transport of clone troopers into battle. This aerial attack craft is heavily armed with missile launchers, chin guns, and bubble-shaped laser cannon turrets. Rugged and fast, the LAAT/i (Low-Altitiude Assault Transport/infantry) vessel is a Republic workhorse, seeing extensive combat throughout the Clone Wars

    Points of Interest:

    • This Republic Gunship ("Crumb Bomber") is based on the 2002 SAGA Republic Gunship, with a few new features: the side doors can be completely sealed off, and the top cannons now have hidden rotating missile launchers.
    • The text on the nose art says "Laugh This Off" in Aurabesh

    Thoughts on this vehicle? Did anyone end up army building this vehicle?

    Please for the sake of the creator make the next gunship with the full doors, but make them collapsing or half removable if possible...

    I am still disappointed that the few of these that they had at my local TRU only lasted a few weeks and were never seen again!

    This thing hung around at my TRU for ages, and they must've had at least 30 of them floating around the store, but the ridiculous price point kept me from buying it. Then, when I heard it was on clearance I ran over to see if I could score this and the TIE Interceptor that had been warming and put on clearance as well, and when I got there, they were all gone, completely disappeared, and I know that they didn't sell through all of them, so I was incredibly frustrated needless to say. My hope is that the next time they re-release this, they wait until the 3D release of AOTC, so that way it would stand a chance of not being an exclusive, and hopefully have a slightly lower price-point. This is probably just wishful thinking though.

    This is my second favorite incarnation of the Gunship. It loses out to my black "Command Gunship" though, but only by a little. The tinted cockpit windows are a little detracting IMO, and those side doors (not the bay doors, but the ones DIRECTLY behind the cockpit) flop open too easily sometimes.

    But other than that the Crumb Bomber is a solid ship. Just can't beat the butt-kickin' paintjob that the Command Gunship has though.
    Are you very mechanical? Well, I was just wondering if you could tell me where this goes? See I wasn’t really online when they were programming us for logic repairs. Usually I can figure it out but these old R5′s are kinda built backwards, know what I mean? Heh! No, you don’t know what I mean…

    Will Hasbro release another gunship anytime soon? I have an original AOTC gunship, but would love to add a Clone Wars version with the full doors. I would love to get a "Shark Face" version too! Anyone think that Hasbro will re-release that one too? <- My feedback thread...

    Never tell me the odds!

    I was kind of disappointed to have missed out on this one. I had really thought that it was going to stick around for years. But it disappeared quickly.

    I would like to see it released with multiple nose art options. There really are a lot of cool ones that have been on the show.

    The Dooku Boot would be great.

    If it's in the same price range as the Clone Shuttle, is it possible Hasbro would ship the Gunship along with the Shuttle? I don't remember the Gunship hanging around very long on shelves except when it was overpriced as an exclusive.
