For the life of me I can't find this thing.
I saw it once ay MM and that was it. I thought for sure I would be able to pick it up after ROTS came out? I might have to order it for EE for 35 bucks.

It seems the Gunships have switched with the ARC-170 as being the hard to find vehicle, at least locally.

I've never seen the Mustafar playset at retail.

I seen a couple at Suncoast on April 2nd and a month later at a far away KB and that was it for me. I really want it and can't find it, even Hasbrotoyshop.com dosen't have it.

It's been the same in my area too. I saw Mustafar once about a month ago, and that was it. It was at a Wal-Mart for $28.88.

I have seen a few here and there, but nothing in the past week or so.

I saw it twice, the second time I said to myself: This might be the last time you see it, just buy it now. I was right. Good thing, too since I didn't buy the AOTC or CW versions.

Good luck, though.

I did the same three weeks ago.
One of the walmarts had two of em' - I opened it up as soon as I got home.

i see the mustafar playset from time-to-time. I looked at one today - I don't like it.

The droid triwing or whatever it is called in very tough to find in atlanta. I think Im gonna get the next one I see.

Which droid vulture droid is rare - I see both of them pretty frequently - I bought both of them today.

I have yet to see the Gunship either. Im content with my AOTC version but my younger brother is driving me up the wall with his requests for one. If you do order it online i believe KB has it for $29.99. If i cant find it within the next couple of weeks im ordering it.

I've only seen the Gunship 2 times total. The second time I saw it, I bought it. KB seems to be the only store that regularly has them.

And I thought this was just a local phenomenon. Like Turbowars, I saw it at MM, but I passed. Then it was weeks before I saw another. It was at Meijer for $27.88, so I grabbed it and ran like the Devil was chasing me.

It's without question more rare than the ARC 170, at least around here.

Yes, I too have only seen this gunship only twice in stores. The first time at walmart the first week the figures were released. There was only one ship there. I figured i wait to buy it since the price was a lil much for me at the time and i still needed a bunch of figures. Then I started to worry since i didnt see it anywhere for several weeks. I found one hidden befind arc fighters at a different walmart only about a week ago. i snatched it up and looked around like some one was watching me. You see, this walmart where i found this ship hasnt had any 3 3/4 figures out since the sneak preview...i think there is some scalper/ebay operations going on there with the employees. they have only had a few ships every now and then. but anyway ...yes these ships are very hard to find. Looking at eBay they are going for around 50 bucks!! wow...

I've haven't seen to many of these things around. Wal-Mart is the only place they seem to show up with any regularity but I got mine on MM so I haven't really been looking either.

Turbo, IIRC they retailed for $28.88 at Wal-Mart so $35 isn't to bad a price especially if you go and pick it up and save yourself the shipping charges since you live relatively close to EE.

I never saw the Gunship at TRU, WM, or Target during the MM weekend. I first saw it @ KB, but passed on it because they wanted $5 more than suggested retail. It wasn't the April 18th that I found it @ a WM (Beckley). I also found the Mustafar @ the same WM. I haven't seen them since. Wierd.

Apparently the gunships all landed in Wayne, WV (BFE for those who aren't familiar with WV).



Wesley, Mustafar is at the South Ridge TRU now. Saw it today.

Wesley, Mustafar is at the South Ridge TRU now. Saw it today.
I'm pretty much caught up. I have figures 1-47, deluxe waves 1 & 2, all 3 battle arenas, all the vehicles, and Mustafar.

The only things that I am missing are some more army builders, the battle packs, the evolutions sets, the Wookie Flyer, deluxe wave 3, & everything above 47 (9 to go!!!). Oh yeah, the Darth Vader 500th figure too.

later

I haven't seen the gunship at all. I see plenty of ARC-170's and Mustafar sets, though. I saw about 20 Mustafar playsets at TRU the other day.

Yeah, those ARC's are gonna end up being on clearance there are so many of them.

How funny is it that we started an ARC-170 Fanclub on here and the one that turns out being rare is the repainted gunship.

Sadly, I bought one of them the first day, but returned it thinking I'll have a chance to get it later anyways. And now I can't find them. Although I'm not really looking for them since I don't like that there are no gunner-pods for it.


As for mustafar playset, my local TRU has like 20 of them. There were 5-6 on the floor shelf, and then like 5-6 boxes of them stacked on top of the shelving unit.


I still have yet to see Deluxe wave2-3, Evolutions, clone 3-packs, anything about #44, and other stuff. I have all figures up to #44 so I'm set there. And I don't have most of the vehicles, but I see them all the time (cept gunship).

Ordered mine from KBtoys.com (with Free Freight) a while ago and have not seen it since.

I have never seen it local (20 mile radius) but I went to a mall that is 45 min away and saw one at a Suncoast store!

It's the other way around in my area of East Texas. The only place I've seen the ARC-170 is Target and Toys'R'us. All the Walmarts in my area have at least two gunships. I really don't know why Walmart did that. They should have order the ARC-170 and skipped the gunships.

I'm not knocking the gunship I have one from AOTC and I love it. It's just that Walmart is wasting my time stocking the gunship instead of the ARC-170.

Psst, go here - http://www.kbtoys.com/genProduct.html/PID/4007859/ctid/17/INstock/Y/D/

I ordered mine today and am very glad I did.

EDIT - Wait a tick - I ordered it an hour or so ago, but now it's gone again . . . did I really order it or were they messing with me? I'll have to look into that.

My local TRU has them back in stock. Debating whether to get it...

Val Da Car
11-03-2005, 09:47 PM
my TRU got some back in...

and they appear to be back in at KBToys.com

I might just one because I got the $10 gift card (75$ previous purchase) and the 20% off coupon from the Big toy book?

Saw two of these the other day at my local TRU. Still the ARC 170 outnumbered it 100 to 1. lol

I found one today at Toys 'R Us in Lexington, KY among 10 ARC-170's. This thing's a bargain for only $30. It's huge. Probably the last vehicle I'll ever buy as I'm steadily running out of room, but it's a good way to go out.

I'd still really like one.....if anyone finds an abundance of them, let me know please.

There were a bunch of them at KBToyworks in MA on Saturday. Looks like it had to find its way out of the warehouse. I think we'll see a lot of what we've been looking for over the next month as bidness picks up.

Saw one not too long ago. Never picked it up. Now, as the ROTS line comes to a close I'm simply missing it, Obi on the Lizard, and three of the last twelve figures. Time to wrap it up so that collection can be done.

For those of you out there, I would recommend checking out Sams for the special pack in figures for the ARC-170 and the Mustafar playset. HUGE BOXES!!!!

if anyone sees a gunship at a store and wouldn't mind picking it up for me I will send the money right over, my 7 year old wants one badly and ebay is too much for me.

I believe that's the Clone Wars Animated WWII style- not the plain ROTS Gunship.

Oh man, that was one of the funniest things I've read in a while! :D

Hopefully it won't be a TRU exclusive, since most of the stores are closing, which will make it difficult to get. And besides, TRU always handles their exclusives soooo well. :rolleyes:

Here are a couple of pictures. One is from the cartoon and the other is a custom, not the real thing but it will most likely look quite similar.

Interesting, first he states the Gunship ships in May then he says he has it "in hand," so which is it buddy?? I wouldn't trust this auction even with the seller's feedback rating especially since the picture isn't of the actual item but of the promotion shot that was released last week. I'd wager its either a scam or he is selling a pre-order.

Darth Instigator
01-31-2006, 06:19 PM
not only that but I thought their auctions for pre-sales had to be within 30 days, Whatever the case I can't believe someone bid on that. I will probably buy one but I had to buy that regular gunship from ebay, $71 after all shipping and everything but my son will be happy.
