    "For some reason I "remember" seeing Clone pilots manning Turrets on Gunship Maybe the AOTC DVD will clear it up for me."

    Right you are, my friend. Except, they manned them INSIDE the bubbles. No one was manning them exteriorly. Read my post carefully and you'll notice I said that they don't man the bubbles *exteriorly* in the movie. :)



    Hothy: OoooOOOoooo, that stinks. The only two fingers I have broken have come from basketball practices. :p
    Just wondering, what position do you play? I play shooting/point guard, although people think I'm good at ball handling I really am not that good. But shooting and passing are my big thing, so I usually play the 2 position mostly.

    Last year I averaged 20 points a game and had two games in which I scored over 30! :)

    You guys are lucky to have even seen the clone pilot IMO.

    I went to Target the other day to look through the $2.99 figs, and someone else who was looking asked if they had any new figures. I told him I hadn't seen any new ones. He said TRU had some clone pilots a couple of weeks before.

    What really irks me is that I had gone to TRU in those two weeks before and not seen a thing.

    Yeah, I think it kinda sucks that the Republic Gunship from Hasbro doesn't have bubbles for the pilots like the ones in the movie... :(

    Sweet! :D Same as me, except you're better at ball handling no doubt. :p

    I had to play the point last year, actually, and I got much better. But thankfully since I'm on varsity this year I get to play shooting guard. [face_devil]

    You need to get AIM, btw. :p

    Hothy: Bleh. Thats pretty stinky. Good reason not to play basketball, besides the fact that I think its kind of...boring. Heh. <---not a big basketball fan.

    The only Saga figure I own so far as a super battle droid I got at target when they lowered their prices. That Jar Jar and Nikto jedi they had just didn't...jump out at me that I should buy them. Then I found out that the Super Battle Droid is more flimsy than the regular battle droids. ARGH! I must say, I'm not liking these action features.

    I'm thinking I'll pick up teh gunship this sunday and get me a silver r2. Maybe toys r us will have some clone pilots. I might actually pay...full...price...for...them. argh!

    I'm up to 4 clone pilots. Two piloting the gunship and the other two firing the turrets.

    I'm up to 8 figures on my gunship :eek:

    When I get my 2 Bubble Clones I'll be up to 8 as well!

    Currently I have 3 Clonies, Yoda, Mace and Ki-Adi... Just like the movie. :D

    My army-building plans will have to wait...

    This may seem like a foolish question. But, by purchasing four clone pilots, that means you have four turrets. Now only two of those turrets can be manned by clone pilots while the other two pilot the gunship.

    Now here's the part I want you to be patient with, why not just buy two clone pilots and have two clone troopers man the turrets?

    Ok, go ahead and chew my head off. Have at it Sithy.

    This maybe slightly off topic, but perhaps fits better here than in the other threads.

    I just got my gunship two days ago. No pilots yet, but three troopers. Anyway, what in the devil is that yellowish, transparent, box-like thing on the rear bottom? I've seen AOTC on IMAX twice now, and there doesn't appear to be anything there on those gunships. It also doesn't appear to do anything practical on my gunship. Am I missing something?

    I believe that it's there to prevent the gunship from tipping over backwards.

    I picked up 2 pilots today (The only ones that were there). Anyone have any tips on how to get the pilots to sit on the turrets?

    Hmm, that's probably it. Never thought about that.

    In AOTC Clone Pilots man Teh Gunship's "Bubble" Turrets, ;) That's why I do it. I just think it Looks better :D So I just don't use the 2 extra turrets, oh well. :)

    I have the AOTC Incredible Cross-Sections book, and it looks like the 2 ball turrets are manned by regular Clone Troopers. It seemed this was the case whenever I saw the movie also. The Pilots are only in the top bubbles of the cockpit section., that I can see.

    I'm still looking for my Clone Pilots... :(
