[SDCC] More Images of 75084 Wookiee Gunship

75084 Wookiee Gunship 1


LEGO Star Wars sets for January 2015 is shaping up to be a Rebels push as SDCC debuted the model for 75084 Wookiee Gunship. For seventy ($69.99) of your hard earned dollars, you'll get a 570 piece model with four minifigs, three of which are Wookies. There is a sled / gunner's station that fits into the cargo hold of the gunship and two cockpits up front. This set seems like such a derivative of the Republic Gunship that it's hard for me get excited about it. And the price is a bit hard to swallow considering what you're getting for it.




The set was on display on Saturday behind a frosted glass case, which was when these pictures were taken. These are my backup images as I intended to go back and reshoot when it was moved to a regular glass case on Sunday but I forgot to go back.

Not too exited...the Wookiees are great, and the ship is cool, but for $70? If they really wanted to sell these, they should've just included Sabine instead of Kanan. Pink Mandalorian armor? Multi-colored hair? I would pay $70 just for her! :lol:

If it included B model instructions to construct a Battlestar Galactica Raptor, and a female figure that could easily be converted to Boomer, maybe...but 70 bones for that? I love wookies as much as the next geek, but not that much.

I'm sick and tired of non sealed cockpits. It's funny how that's a "legal" connection under the master builder guide book of design. They just need some better cockpit piece design and a mated bottom piece to make a good seal.
eBay store, contact me if you'd like to perform trades from my inventory. I'm looking for original genosian fighers, second version a-wing fighters and tie bombers. I may be interested in other sets so let me know what you have.

In The Empire Strikes Back, all you needed was a facemask to go outside the space ship and into the digestive system of a giant space slug. Sealed cockpits definitely look better, but are seemingly unnecessary in this part of the galaxy. ;)

But you're right. Even as a kid, this detail would bug me, too.

I think what you're looking for is "the new Wookies are awful, and look like they should be starring in 80s movies about Bigfoot"
If the above post didn't offend you, you're probably reading it wrong.

Well, maybe the light brown ones, but I think that the dark brown/red one looks pretty good. Still better than the Chewbacca we got this year...
