    That would be nice, I must say, but it's not supposed to get here until Thursday, so I'm not going to get my hopes up TOO much. :D

    Man!

    Mine still says "ready". And according to the *****, it's supposed to arrive tomorrow.

    Ok, this is making me really upset. If I don't get the gunship soon, I'm going to put a lego one into my Arena diorama that I have going on.

    Of course, then I'd have to buy a lego one, and I don't collect the legos.


    AAAAAGH!

    It's driving me nuts that everyone is starting to get theirs, and mine is still just "READY". What the hell?

    The Walmart inventory sticker says mine was #14 of 25 so I guess they come in groups of 25

    Johsee just wait till your Gunship comes to you. Do not go out and buy the lego one. You can buy 2 Gunships for the price of 1 lego Gunship.

    I don't even understand why someone would want the lego one. It's WAY smaller, double the price, you have to put it together, looks stupid (in my opinion), less detailed, and will fall apart easier.

    Not everyone feels that way Saber. I love my Gunship lego. I will admit it was a litle expensive. But no one forced me to buy it. As for details I will also admit it is not that acurate. But then agin no lego is. But I did love putting it together. And if you don't touch it, it will not fall apart.

    All I have to say is F*&$!~!

    People are getting their gunships left and right, and all I'm left with are annoying Wal mart customer service reps who can't help me!

    My status has said "Ready" ever since I ordered it, but it also said that it was due to arrive today.

    So, today, even though it never said "Shipped" I was secretly hoping I would get home and it would be here...but no dice. So I check my Wal Mart page, and NOW it says "Ordered", but they've changed my damn delivery date to September 18th!!!!


    It's no fair!

    I can't consider it an "upgrade" when yesterday it said I was supposed to get it 9.5.02, and TODAY...it says I won't have it until 9.18.02

    That just sucks!

    Man....what am I going to do for 13 more days waiting for this thing?

    Yeah, you did somehow become the poster boy for this ship (even though I can gaurantee I love mine more than you because I don't even HAVE IT YET!!!!)

    Hehehe.

    So where are the pictures? I STILL haven't seen any cool pictures yet. I want to see some with clonetroopers and Yoda inside...come on!

    There'll be pics up later or Saturday for sure. Don't worry. :)

    Got mine in today. Oh yeah.

    It's pretty sweet. About as long as the body of the AT AT, and as wide as the Falcon. It's not quite as big as those two though, as it's winged.

    I really like how they set it up to be interactive with some of the stuff coming out soon. I've got to buy at least two pilots now, to get the ray-bubbles, and there's a place in the back of the gunship to put the speeder that comes with the deluxe clonetrooper.

    I have been waiting waiting waiting for the Republic Gunship to arrive in stores.

    WalMart was advertising it for a late August release on its website, and now it's GONE.

    Toysrus had it marked (without picture, geez) as "available Sept 10th"

    Is it there? NO! Today the website has it listed as available Oct 1st.

    Is anyone else anguishing over this? It makes me wanna bust into TRU and start kicking their butts Anakin-style like the "animals they are" Grrrrr.

    If theyare going to decalre a release date, they need to stick to it- especially if that date is 1/4 YEAR AFTER the film's release!!!

    Also, I want more clone troopers, like maybe an army-builder set.

    Thanx, just had to vent about this. I have been waiting for today for weeks thinking I would finally have a dang gunship, and now I gotta wait another month. Grrrr.

    Oh yeah? Well without the Gunship, there would be no EITHER of you. And without Star Wars there would be nothing. At all.
    Period.
