LEGO Republic Gunship Building Set

The superb LEGO Republic Gunship set from Star Wars: The Clone Wars is not only a pleasure to build but a long-running adventure to play with, especially as an addition to your child's collection of Star Wars Legos. The doors to the crew bay open for your clone troopers (4 are included) to come out and attack the enemy, there's a speeder bike for reconaissance missions, and minifigs of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Plo Koon and Asajj Ventress.

LEGO Republic Gunship Details

Take the battle to the Separatists with this heavily armed troop transporter, as seen in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Features opening crew bay doors, flick missiles and separate speeder bike. Includes seven mini-figures: Four clone troopers, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and two new minifigures, Plo Koon and Asajj Ventress, a Sith Lord equipped with a new double lightsaber. 1,034 pieces.

Send in the clones and the Jedi Knights. This heavily armed and armored Clone Wars troop carrier can fly and land in any battlefield or hostile terrain. But will even Obi-Wan Kenobi and Plo Koon be enough to stop the sinister Asajj Ventress and her double Sith lightsabers?

Get in on the action of the Clone Wars with the Republic Gunship set 7676 from the Lego Star Wars Collection. With plenty of cannons, spy droids, and flick missiles to jumpstart a major battle, this building set is primed to satisfy both serious Lego builders and Star Wars collectors. With lots of little parts and detailed instructions, this set is recommended for ages 9 to 14. Like all Lego sets, it also holds the potential to keep creative adults entertained for hours.

Drawing from the wealth of Star Wars lore, the Clone Wars are part of a back-story of intragalactic unrest that set the stage for the original trilogy. They are portrayed in a new animated movie, TV series, and video game, which help fill in gaps that appear between the other movies. With this set, you can be part of the action. Take up the battle against the Separatists using the Republic Gunship, a heavily armed and armored Clone Wars troop carrier that's ready to invade even the most hostile terrain.

Cockpits in unexpected locations on the wings, unique sliding doors, the zoomer buggy, and an emergency capsule for sick and injured characters ranked high on the list of cool features. That's not all though. There's also a front side compartment that opens so you can remove the command station, eight positionable flick-fire missiles on top, two rotating missiles in front, and a top compartment which opens to provide access to the spy droids.

Even though there's plenty of features on just the Republic Gunship to hold a child's interest for a long time, we can imagine how much fun the set would be with a whole group of friends and siblings plus all their Star Wars ships. We also appreciate the way that Lego systems never limit imaginative play. All the cool hardware that makes up the Republic Gunship can be used to build any structure or vehicle your child dreams up.

Included Lego figures represent the well-known characters Obi-Wan Kenobi, Plo Koon, Asajj Ventress, and Commander Cody. Of course, there's Clone Trooper mini-figures as well. There's a cool speeder bike that deploys from the back, and multiple decals to create different gunships for your army. Arm your favorite figure with a lightsaber in Jedi blue-green or Sith red, and let the intragalactic battles begin. There's even a healing chamber that helps your characters recharge after a tough battle.
