What It Is
The LEGO Star Wars: Republic Gunship is a huge, 1,175-piece construction set that builds the Republic Gunship from Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. The completed Gunship is over 18-inches long and 16-inches wide.
Why It’s Fun
The completed Gunship is packed with awesome features, including multiple cockpits and gun turrets that minifigures can sit in, a rear bay door that opens to reveal a swoop bike, swiveling guns, a flick missile launcher and multiple compartments. The large side panels open through a clever lever on the back that makes it seem like they are automatically sliding open and the whole ship can be lifted by the retractable handle on the top.
This LEGO set comes with seven minifigures: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Padmé Amidala, a Clone Trooper Captain, Clone Trooper and two Super Battle Droids.
Who It’s For
LEGO and Star Wars fans ages 9 and up. Younger kids will probably want to play with it but they might need some help with the construction.
What To Be Aware Of
The directions are great but be prepared for a lengthy construction process – it took us about 2 hours to build but we think most people will probably take somewhere between 4 and 5 hours to finish this large set. The set includes a poster recreating a scene from the movie using LEGO Star Wars toys.
