Instructions

Booklet 1

The set 7678 Droid Gunship was released on July 26, 2008 as part of the LEGO Star Wars: The Clone Wars line. Included in the set are three Battle Droid Minifigures.

Description

The Droid Gunship is mostly dark blue and grey and made up of two main parts: The body and the cockpit. The main body dominates most of the set. It is large and circular, with blasters and missiles underneath clustered on each side. In the center of the hull is a mechanism that, at the turn of a gear, drops 6 "bombs" from the bottom. The gunship also has retractable landing gear.

The bridge protrudes from the front and has twin blasters mounted on ball joints on either side. A single blaster is located in between these in the center. the cockpit can open and close to accommodate the Battle Droid piloting the craft.

Also included are three battle droids: two that have two arms with vertical hands to hold guns, which are included, and one with two normal arms to pilot the gunship.

Background

The Droid Gunship is a large and very powerful atmosphere craft. They hover high enough to avoid being hit by blaster fire aimed at the Battle Droids and low enough to avoid anti-aircraft fire. Droid gunships can hover over almost any terrain, making them extremely dangerous and effective. They were used in the Battle of Onderon to attack the Onderon rebels and the Battle of Kashyyyk to attack the Wookiee Warriors and Swamp Troopers,

Notes

  • Although the set was released on July 26, 2008, it was only released at Walmart, LEGO.com, and San Diego Comic-Con International 2008. Later on, it was released in Toys"R"Us stores and at Woolworths.
  • The two Battle Droid are the first and only with two straight arms with vertical hands.
  • In Episode III: Revenge of the Sith a droid brain was piloting the gunship, not a pilot.
