I know we have another review of this set, but since I just got it, I thought I would share my comments on it.

Set Name: Droid Gunship Platform

Number: 7678

Pieces: 329

Price: $29.99

Before we begin I will say that I like having a droid gunship, but I still hope we get a MAF:

On to the review.

Here we have the box. It is really shiny, and smooth, and fits the set's size okay. It has a clean, bright look, and is truley outstanding.

The back of the box, which has the features of the set, as well as the other three CW sets.

The contents

The siticker sheet. No to bad, and the stickers have clear backs, which is always nice.

Instructions

Here we have the figs(two new droids and one older armed droid for the cockpit), and the extra parts.

The build starts with the flat base. Pretty simple.

The bottom.

The side lasers.

Next is the head:

It starts pretty soild.

The side buble laser turrets. Loveing the detail.

On the ship:

The "lid" and eyes.

dscn0761.jpg

The finished cockpit.

dscn0762.jpg

Cozy interior... Would have had more room if it were the MAF though. :sceptic:

dscn0763.jpg

The front landing gear. Simple and effective. :classic:

dscn0764.jpg

The back landing gear.

dscn0765.jpg

The rockets. The clips are annoying. But it make the rockets work so, I guess it was nessecary.

dscn0766.jpg

Mounted on the bottom. Not very secure, but that's why they are meant to be dropped on the clones.... :devil::tongue:

The finished ship.

---------------------------------------------

Let me say that the droid gunship is a nice set indeed.

Final rating: 86%

Hope you enjoyed the review! Please, if you have a ny questions, pic requests, etc, then by all means, ask! :classic:

Best Regards,

VBBN

Thanks for the review.

It's always good to have a 2nd opinion on a set.

I've added the usual poll and I'll index it tomorrow (must sleep).

Super pics and great to have "in-build" pics :thumbup:

A fine set which I'll surely buy when I find it. :hmpf_bad:

Very nice review. One thing you have to consider: when lego sees pics of the star wars universe, they have to decide which would be the easiest set to make with the most playibility. Therefore, they chose the HMP.

Thanks for the review.

Your welcome! :thumbup: I was going to make that poll, but thanks for doing it. :sweet: And I always try to take clear pics and in-build pics. :classic:

Thanks! One thing I belive is this: Lego is starting to make the blue droid faction(aat, vulture droid, etc.), but sometimes makes brown ones(MTT). So maybe they will make a $50 MAF in brown later, like the brown vulture droid last year. :thumbup: Let's hope!

Nice review! Thanks for the clear pics. Also, if you place a brick so the axles on the bomb mechanisms tips are touching the brick, the bombs should stay on.

:laugh: How'd you figure that? But seriously, this looks like a great set, and am planning on making it my next LEGO purchase. How did you ge tis for $25? I almost bought it the other day, the box makes it look so cool. Something about the new clone wars packaging makes you want to buy all the sets on the shelf! :laugh:

Thanks for the review,

Thanks for the review. I have had second thoughts about purchasing this bad boy and I think you made it clear that it was a nice buy. However, I would have loved the MAF too! :laugh:

I've added it as "Review 2" since we've already got one.

You've said it all :thumbup:

That's exactly how I feel about it.

I've not got a single clue as to what this thing is or why.

But the colours and the design are awesome.

Might be a little small....anyways I'm getting it.
