This ship looks very promising. It reminds me of an old fighter plane the way the canopies are designed. It also looks as if 4 figures will fit into it. Two pilots in the front, one Astro in the Top middle and a gunner in the rear. I read on another sites that it would only hold 2 pilots and a droid. I have a feeling this ship will be around for awhile, just as the awesome Gunship has.

I have to agree with you, looks like a really cool ship.

I really like it. Looks influenced by a late WWII German fighter, crossed with a Tank buster or Torpedo bomber. Can't wait to see it in action.

First off, welcome to the boards blue!

I was really pleased when I saw this. Im not sure if Ill be getting this one or the lego one.. Most likely this one though, :D Only becuase it would fit in with the ginships and jedi starfighters.

Yeah, this thing looks great! Just hope the price is under $40.00. It looks pretty big.

It looks to be about the same length as the Republic Gunship, but since it's not as wide, it'll probably lower the cost. I'd say $29.99 tops.

I like the look of this. It's exotic but at the same time it's Star Warsy. Unfornately looking at the pictures it doesn't come in a window box.:cry:

I agree...figure to milk more profit the Gunship will be $29.99 and the ARC 170 will be $40.00.

For that price it should be close to the size of the Falcon then.

You think the top s-foils open as well. The pics show them shut, but in the movie, the wings have 3 on each side (leading me to think these were the tri-fighters early on).

The wings should look like....

-X- or something like that....

The pictures show --/O\-- or something like that (the top s-foils not deployed).

I love this ship and hope everything you see it do in the movie, it will do with the toys.

I plan on buying 3 at the least!!!

(to hang from the ceiling flying in formation with Obi-Wan and Anakin's starfighters too!)

According to one of the Hasbro TF press releases, this is part of the "Gunship Assortment" and, as much, will retail for $29.99 like the Republic Gunship. And the way the entire release was worded, it sounds like it might be available on April 2nd but don't hold me to it. It'd be nice though... :D

EDIT: Here's the link to the press release. As a matter of fact, it was on SirSteve's home page all along!!

I like the look of this. I think it can fit three pilots, it can in the movie anyway (unless they meant 2 pilots and a droid?). Anyway those new pilots better be easy to find, I'll need two for the gunship and three for the ARC-170.

It sure does fit 3 pilots and 1 Astro. Here's the details

ARC-170 FIGHTER



The ARC-170 FIGHTER (Aggressive ReConnaissance) blasts into battle! Clone troopers are specially trained to serve aboard these attack and recon vessels. The ARC-170 carries a crew of three and has an astromech droid to handle in-flight operations. The well-armed fighter lives up to its name as an aggressive vehicle against the Separatist forces. Features blaster cannons, swing-down handle, proton torpedoes, and more. Figures not included.

I spoke similarly in another thread. I checked this morning and we are correct. It WILL be listed as a $29.99 ship.

Yeah, that pilot looks like a hot figure.

Is it me or are they doing pilots, scouts, everything as

every rank and campaign?

If so, Clone Armies are going to be so unbelievably expensive and detailed-to-the-point-of-frustrating to get every piece. What fun though!

:crazed:

That figure on Snow troopers isn't a pilot.

He looks like he will look cool in the new Gunship.

While not surprised I am a little disappointed that the ARC will not include at least ONE pilot figure. I predict it will be one of the toughest figs to score as everyone will need 3 to fly their $30 ship (with the astromech the total cost of this ship should be more like $50+ to be properly outfitted). :ermm:

Yeah and considering guys like me and Tycho are plannign on getting at least 3 of these puppies... That's 12 figures+3 ships. With tax that's about $175 alone.

Tycho

Don't remind me :rolleyes:

I've saved up nearly $2,000 for the toys this year, and I'm concerned it will be anywhere from $500 to $1,000 too little to do my armies and fleets true justice:

3 ARC 170's with full compliments
Obi-Wan's starfighter + Pilot
Anakin's starfighter + Pilot
3 Droid Tri-Fighters
1-2 more "vulture droid fighter sets" - either TPM or some new issue (I'll wait and see)

And of course all the other vehicles and stuff - considering an AT-TE and TurboTank (both) may be seen by Christmas (in my dreams and my wallet's nightmares).

Anyway, I better get back to work and earn some more money. Anyone else in California looking to buy or refinance their house?

And note: my securities clients I have up for their annual reviews made over 20% on their investments last year, as well as myself - though I'm re-investing most of my profits with some money out to go to Indianapolis in style.

This ship looks nice, im liking it more than i like the gunship, and the gunship was awesome. The price isnt bad either.

That guy who got the ROTS figure from Hasbro is a lucky dog. Im going to go break my POTJ Bespin Guard and see if i get anything like that from Hasbro.
