  1. Having the gunship set be based on its appearance in the guerilla war on Alderaan in TCW instead of Kashykkk would have been a much better idea from a minifig perspective. That way it would potentially have given us Asohka and young Saw Gererra, as well as maybe even General Kalani.

    I think a two-speed gearbox similar to what we saw in the Go-Kart is absolutely appropriate for this set of this size, especially since all Technic functions can only be approximations of the real thing anyway. On a larger model sure, you’d want six-speed, but for this small scale you couldn’t do a gearbox with more than two gears.

    He probably means an openable hood, boot and doors. I’d want a small scale car to have at least those basic functions.

    Lol at 42070 not retiring yet. What’s the bet they have a bunch of shelf warmers because nobody wants to buy one

    From what we can tell no :( he was just wondering why it isn’t there. I’m pretty sure the real car has a flappy paddle gearbox anyway.

    Future Set Wishes and Speculation

    Oh no definitely, but the large sprocket is a new mold, so why not combine it with the wheel? Perhaps that would require the old large wheel molds to be retired and hence more new molds would need to be built to replace the old scrapped ones, but even then that would eventually happen though since molds get worn out over time.

    I find it curious that they haven’t yet tried to make all the larger wheels both track and tyre compatible.

    It looks so awkward with those small wheels

    Roses are red, violets are blue. I want a UCS Venator, and so do you.
  11. Oh definitely - I agree with almost everything you said after that. As much as I like the Gunship I don’t think it was necessary, and I wish we got a different set because there’s just way cooler stuff out there than Kashykkk.
  12. That’s not what I took issue with though. It didn’t bother me that you’re not interested in it in the slightest, because everyone has their preferences. What bothered me was your justification which was just flat out incorrect.
  13. The AT-AP yes, but I won’t hear such blasphemy against the Gunship The only thing the same is the use of the huge circular disk pieces and the ball turrets, because there’s just no substitute for those and they do their job magnificently. The cockpit is one stud narrower, is flatter and looks more aggressive, the air intake is actually circular now and no longer an ugly diamond, the sides are entirely new builds, the little nubs at the front of the disk are new builds, and the disk itself is 2 studs lower in diameter. To say they look almost the same is just flat out wrong.
  14. Lol I thought for a second that you were talking about the Droid Gunship, and I was about to scream heresy. That walker does look pretty shit unfortunately. Perhaps some other design at the Battle of Kashykkk would’ve been better.

    And this is precisely the type of marketing that I hate. Leaving shit out that should be there in the first place to try scalp a customer into buying more. It’s scummy by principle in my books.
