About the product

In space or on the ground, the REPUBLIC ATTACK SHIP demolishes the droid army. In attack ship mode, this heavily armed vehicle pummels the enemy with laser cannon fire. It lands in the center of the battle and converts to an armored attack base with a recon fighter. Clone trooper forces operate the attack ship and armored base, using this powerful weapon to bring the battle right to the droid army!

Prepare for twice the out-of-this-world battle action! This detailed REPUBLIC ATTACK SHUTTLE vehicle features rotating wings to start it “soaring.” Put your CLONE PILOT figure in the cockpit and then detach it to create a recon fighter vehicle! If an attack begins and you’ve got to arm yourself for battle, convert your vehicle to armored attack base mode. Electronic lights flash as the base makes announcements like “Droid fighters — incoming!” and “All cannons fire” to prepare you and your CLONE PILOT figure. Get your enemies in your sights and then engage your pop-up missile-firing cannons! None of your opponents have a chance against you and this dual-mode dynamo!

Vehicle comes with 5 projectiles, CLONE PILOT figure, blaster, label sheet, instructions, Galactic Battle Game dueling card, battle game base and game die.

Requires 3 “AA” batteries. (Not included)  Ages 4 and up.


My Thoughts

When my husband was younger, his parents were able to purchase for his brother and him a large number of Star Wars figures and ships for a really good price.    That Christmas the brothers were sick and tired to unwrap packages under the tree.  But they were real happy to have numerous Star Wars toys to play with I think.  They still talk about that specific Christmas to this day and somehow some of their figures have survived the years and are now used by our own kids.  

This year, Hasbro has numerous new Star Wars toys for a new generation of kids – ones that are my own.    It is hard to believe that a movie that came out back in the 70s is still very much popular to this day in 2011.   My own children adore watching Star Wars The Clone Wars and will re-enact the scene they saw – especially the two younger ones…! *grin*

Well with the Star Wars The Clone Wars Republic Attack Shuttle, the kids will be able to create their own battles.

This special toy will open up and allow to set up a command center in the pretend play of your kids.     When needed be they will be able to close it back and fly to safety!

One clone pilot is included in this set and it can also be included in the Galactic Battle Game as it has its own card for this.  


I suspect that many kids will have a ton of pleasure playing with this sturdy shuttle.   Though while I was looking into it one section was easy to unhook from the place it was located – the gun coming out of the top of the shuttle.    It is quite easy to put back but for younger children it could be tricky.  So parents expect to be asked to “repair” the shuttle every once in a while…  The shuttle requires batteries so that it can give the commands out loud.  This particular feature can be annoying for certain people.    I have a tendency to tone down the noise around me at times but my husband dislike this kind of noise.   

The Star Wars The Clones Wars Republic Attack Shuttle is available at your favorite toy store.
