Well the 2008 sets finally arrived in the Islands and one of them I managed to pick up was the Imperial Dropship, Piranha Advancements proudly present this little review
Name: Imperial Dropship
First we have pictures of the lovely boxart *wub* I must say I quite like the Vader logo in the corner. Also note the "Build you army" slogan *wub*
Now we have the back of the box with the "cool features" pictures *More on that later
The fig selection is quite generous, with three Imperial Stormtroopers and the elusive Shadow Trooper! *wub*
A great way to build up your stormie army!
It should also known that these stormie's have a new design from the original with a comparison picture below. The mouth area is now Grey with blacks stripes. *Old Stormie on left * new stormie on right
Now onto a beautiful fig and my favorite trooper! The Shadow Stormie! I love the silver eye printings and the overall pattern *wub*
Finally the nice various assortment of blasters -2 long and 2 short
*Dropship aka Crapship X-D
First we have the standard views of the ship from different angles. The stickers are 3 imperial logo's in silver, I quite like them though :-$
Another side view
Next is the views of the troop carrier thingy detached from the main ship
It opens and drops in an interesting way, the wings open up and a technic pin is there for the carrier to slide in, then you close it up
The cockpit has no controls(more helmet technology I guess :-| :-D ) It opens up forward for the Shadow Trooper to fit nicely in
The view with all the troopers snugly attached to the dropship
The next shot is of the carrier detached, it fills quite open without the 4 stormie there
Lastly is a rear view of the ship with the grey engines(basically wheel rims)
Overall model- 7.5/10
Overall a great set to collect some cool figs and great for army builders! The inclusion of a shadow trooper makes it much more interesting but I wouldn't have minded 4 Stormies plus the Shadow Trooper. A must buy for any SW fan or OT fan!
