I got a Command Gunship from the TRU (Geoffrey's) in Meridian, MS, earlier this week. I never got the earlier Saga/AOTC version, and I have a couple of questions for you guys who have both:
1. What is the difference in the two, physically? Does the CW version have a newer or improved action feature?
2. Which has the better color scheme, in your opinion?
3. How do you have yours displayed?
They had both versions on the shelves, but the older one was still priced at $45, while the CW ship was $30. I have had more fun with this vehicle than nearly any other I can think of, including my favorites, the TIE Bomber and Jango Fett's Slave I.
I've got mine hanging from the ceiling, troop doors open. In addition to the two pilots up front, I've got Plo Koon, Aalya Secura, two Sneak Preview Clone Troopers, a red Clone sergeant, a third Clone Pilot, and an R3-T7 unit in the transport area. The whole display has such a commanding presence among my collection that I'm thinking about getting another Gunship, especially in light of the coming ARC Trooper and yellow Clone value packs!
