    Instead of only having pictures of the newest gunship alone, I decided to take comparison shots. These first two pictures show the difference in appearance while in robot mode. As you can see, the new longer doors give Clone Pilot #3 a little more height.

    Photo number 3 gives a side by side shot.

    Photos number 4 - 7 give various close ups of the sides of all three gunship noses.

    Thanks for the comparison pics. A quick question. Has the head been remolded from the prior two clone pilots or is it the same as the first release? Thanks for your help.

    That's sweet, I seen it at the store, but didn't notice it had new doors of the nose art. I thought it was just another re-release. So, I passed. Now I'll have to look for that.

    Shoot. I thought the new nose art seemed different when I saw one last week, but I couldn't convince myself that it was new. Well, that's another one to hunt down now.

    Man, I do want that one. One of my problems with the republic gunship mould was that it used the early design with the "half-doors" from AOTC. This is much better.


    My only gripe now is that he doesn't come with the little pilot. :(

    This Clone Pilot has the same head as original. I was really tired that day, and I didn't reallize that the shoulders had been changed too. Now there is a circluar detail added to the outer body of the nose area. Look right behind the red bombs, in the dark triangle.

    Thanks again for the comparison pics and for answering my question about the head. I like that they made some changes to the mold and would have been happy with this one versus the original, but since they share the same head and I already have the original, I will pass on this one.

    I really like that gunship mode, but no pilot figure is a huge minus for me. However fragile and cheap looking they were, they were one of 2 reasons I buy most of SWTF.
