It’s been a long wait since more than 30,000 LEGO fans voted for this Low-Altitude Assault Transport vehicle in a LEGO Ideas poll back in February last year. The wait is worth it, though, as this is an epic Ultimate Collector Series set with 3,292 pieces.
Despite the detail and raft of authentic features, 75309 Republic Gunship comes in at a reasonable £329.99 / $349.99 / €349.99, and also includes two minifigures in Mace Windu and a Clone Trooper Commander. The finished model measures 68cm long, 33cm tall and 74cm wide, making it a cornerstone of any LEGO Star Wars collection.
The level of detail is fantastic, with features including an opening rear hatch and sides, swing-out gun turrets, two cannons, two pilot cockpits and super-long wings. It’s a great build for yourself, while also making for an exciting gift any LEGO Star Wars fan will love.
Whether you grew up with the original films or the prequel trilogy, this Ultimate Collector Series set is a must-have for presumably at least 30,000 people, and – hopefully, for the sake of future prequel-trilogy UCS sets – a whole lot more.
Given the level of interest in this set, it’s sure to fly off the shelves, so don’t miss out and order your 75309 Republic Gunship today. If you haven’t done so already, check out our review while you wait for it to arrive.
