The Rumors Are True: 7679 Republic Fighter Tank Available Again

These photos were taken at my local Target store. If you missed out the first time, don’t tempt fate again. This is one of the best sets to come out of the Clone Wars series.

P.S. This is the first time I’m posting from my iPhone so the results may be a little iffy.

Review: 7679 Republic Fighter Tank

Tank Overall

I’ll preface this review by saying there are not many vehicle designs from the Prequels or Clone Wars that I like. It’s not that I’m biased against anything prequel-related; it’s just that generally I don’t find the designs very inspired.

That said, the TX-130 fighter tank that the Republic Fighter Tank set is based on is one of my favorite designs from the prequel era of Star Wars. From it’s first appearance in the Clone Wars video game, to Battlefront, the fighter tank is a solid good guy vessel for ground warfare. Bristling with cannons, turrets, missiles and more, the Republic’s clones are in possession of a death-dealing machine that has the droids shaking in their racks. I loved the design so much that in 2004 it served as the inspiration for my own 3vil Hovertank.

So now you know where my bias lies. I love the fighter tank design, so I had high hopes for the Lego rendition. Did it live up to my expectations?
