Brick Fanatics had the chance to sit down with both members of the LEGO Star Wars design team ahead of today’s reveal to chat all things Gunship, including how the duo decided which minifigures to include – and how the shape of the ship was an absolute ‘nightmare’ to design.

That’s not the full extent of our 75309 Republic Gunship coverage, though: we’ve also got a full, early and in-depth review of the set right here, along with a full explanation of the error that’s plaguing the first batch of boxes and instruction manuals (and the LEGO Group’s response!).
The 3,292-piece 75309 Republic Gunship will launch on August 1, alongside 10279 Volkswagen T2 Camper Van – also revealed this week – for £329.99 / $349.99 / €349.99. There’s no early VIP access for either of those sets, but it’s not all bad: that does give you a couple of extra weeks to save up…
