You Won't be able to buy any more Clone Wars sets in the UK until Friday midnight

(If you want an explanation, Woolworths now have a display saying that the sets won't be sold until then)

Nice pictures, but three questions:

1. How many pages do the instruction books have?
2. What are the spare parts? Or: Does this Laaty come with two Clone-Commander-equipment sets and four Assaij Ventress lightsaberhilts?
3. Where did you get it?
4. How much did it cost?

1. 122
2.  Laaty come with two Clone-Commander-equipment sets and four Assaij Ventress lightsaberhilts
3. We have not wal-mart or target in mine contry
4. 1249. nok i don't know the doller

That cant be right!
That means the Republic Gunship is £123!
It was estimated £79- £90! Im not getting it if its £123... :cry_sad:

Thanks for the review.  If I am correct, the new RGS is $119.99 US.   From Xe.com, the 1249 NOK is nearly $250.00 US!

Remember, the converters are never right.  So the previously known prices still stand and it's still $119.99 and the same price in pounds (sorry, I forgot that one.  :hmpf_bad: )

Oh, I know that the currency converters don't work in regards to LEGO pricing in each country.  Still, I think they are an indication of how much US folks could be spending for a set, so I'll take a financial break where I can.   So, I think the lesson learned for US folks is that when the dollar is weak, don't be buying LEGO when in a different country.

I got this amazing set! I'l review with pictures later, still in the process of building it. So far I've got; 2 spare Asajj hilts, 2 spare hilts, whole clone accessory pack, view finder and some other clone accessory. The set is £80, the Droid Gunship is £35, the V-19 Torrent is £50 and the AT-TE is £100. If anyone lives in the north east, Gateshead Metrocenter's Woolworths has: Droid Gunships, V-19's, 2 AT-TE's and 1 RGS (RAG).

Shoulda went with the AT-TE. :tongue:

So you have double lightsaber hilts, a clone gear polybag, and double clone gear spread around the set? Am I right? :oh3:

Thanks for the pics. :classic:

I have a question, though: What do you think of the scale? I've been a bit worried about the size of the wings in proportion to the body...
True happiness: looking inside the box to see a perfectly flat instruction manual.

I have a question, what is the door above the gun for? (pic)

Yes. I'm curious about that too but no one seems to know. I thought about it and it might be extra storage space to hold the rest of the Clone Commander gear but we'll find out properly from the people who have the sets.

Cool review, thanks!
Way too many stickers!  :thumbdown:
But this is a very good set, though. I agree with the 9/10 you gave it!  :thumbup:

Thanks for the answers Hotshot!

Hopefully the TRU in Greenwich (London) does have one or two RGS for me, when I am there, next week. Please god! I don´t want to pay 150€ when I can get it for 97€ in UK...

Thanks for this review hotshot. I have no doubts, this is a MUST-HAVE for any clone wars fan! The lack of clone troopers is, I think, the only con of this set. Anyway I REALLY CAN'T WAIT to buy it. Many pieces, two jedis, one sith, only new minifigs, clone troopers, commander cody, bigger cannons, missiles, speeder, bacta tank, mobile command post.
5/5

Oh and, what is that mysterious commander part?

Someone asked for a picture of the "Light" clone accessory, so I imagined it was that.
