True, but it *IS* Hasbro we're talking about, so who knows what on earth they'll be thinking.

The Naboo Fighter seemed like a complete no-brainer for an early 2012 release and they completely botched that, so my faith in the company doing the most sensible thing with future ships and vehicles is pretty weak.

You never know we may get the updated mold of the Gunship with gun pods included, all for $80!!
If i wanted figures like Rebels and Legends series i'd build a time machine. Even if i did want them, i'd probably still need a time machine..

And in 2014! :P

Nah, if they put out a "new" Gunship it'll be next year and might be the year's BMF for all we know. But like others have said, don't expect it when AOTC 3-D is actually in theaters.

I think Hasbro said there wouldn't be a "Big One" in 2013... or at least not a "new" one - which makes me think the 2013 vehicle assortment will (or should) be something like this:

Early 2013 - mass retail
$80 - Repainted Republic Gunship w/ turrets - Repack
$30 - Homing Spider Droid repack - Repack
$30 - Mandalorian Assault Transport - Repack
$30 - Neimoidian Shuttle - NEW!
$30 - Forward Command Center - NEW!

Early 2013 - exclusives
$30 - Acklay - Repack w/ Obi Wan Kenobi (TRU)

Late 2013 - mass retail
$100 - Geonosian Arena Playset - NEW!
$30 - Geonosian Starfighter - Repack
$30 - Hailfire Droid - Repack
$30 - Something OT - Repack
$30 - Something OT - Repack

:wink:

Some nice suggestions there Chewie and if some of those repacks were worth picking up again i would.

A couple of those seem like interesting ideas. I wouldn't mind a Neimoidian Shuttle.

I agree. Someone needs to ask about the Fighter. This is getting ridiculous.

Still a little rich for my blood (25 pounds is roughly $41 American) but at least it's nice to know the thing's still surfacing.

Well these days medium vehicles are £34.99, so for one that never made it to general retail £25.59 is a good price for me. Heck long ago retail price for medium vehicles was 24.99, i didn't mind when they were that price.

I might look into this after some thought. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. $41 might not be ideal but it's a fair sight better than the $89 or $99 before shipping and handling that eBay scalpers want.

My starfighter came in the post today, just put it together after a frustrating 45 min putting stickers on; least they were easy to adjust! Very cool vehicle, the new features are great. Put all my Naboo Starship astromechs in it and R5 D4, all look pretty good in it. The landing gears are subtle and nice and the engine cannons hide well. The sliding cockpit is a nice touch, fits well. Nice to get quite a large vehicle in the medium line considering what were getting soon, will have to route out my TPM one to compare.
