Released on August 1 last year, now is the best time to pick up this sought-after Ultimate Collector Series build-and-display model. The hard-to-find set has an RRP of £309.99, but is available for £249.99 in the Zavvi LEGO sale. That £60 saving represents a discount of nearly 20%.
75309 Republic Gunship is an authentic representation of this Low Altitude Assault Transport (LAAT) vehicle that starred in the Battle of Geonosis in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. With swing-out gun turrets, top-mounted canons and pilot cockpits, the model also has an opening rear hatch and sides, which reveal further interior details.
As you probably remember, this LAAT vehicle was voted into UCS existence by LEGO fans. If you voted for it yourself and haven’t picked it up yet, now is the perfect time to do so. After securing your set at the best price yet, you can look forward to a 3,292-piece build that’s complex yet still suitable for newcomers thanks to the easy-to-follow instructions.
Measuring almost 70cm long and 74cm wide with its full wingspan included, 75309 Republic Gunship rises 33cm in height and looks great on the included display stand. Whether this is going to be the new centrepiece of your LEGO Star Wars collection or sit nicely alongside your other UCS sets, you also get two minifigures in the box – Mace Windu with a lightsaber and Clone Trooper Commander with a blaster.
The Zavvi March Mayhem sale has seen prices slashed by up to 45%, so there’s much more besides to check out as well as 75309 Republic Gunship.

This is valid until 11.59pm on Monday March 28, while if you’re in the US, standard delivery is still a snip at £3.99.
