Day 8 – Republic Gunship

(Singing) On cycle eight of Life Day my first mate gave to me, a case of Déjà vu,
three teeny blasters,
an angry Steward of Endor,
a pair of ruby slippers,
a bounty hunter’s hot rod,
a break-dancing pilot,
an impractical escape ship
and a dancing droid beneath the Life Tree.

It was bound to happen, right? I mean, the entire Star Wars license has become one rehash after another if you don’t count the Clone Wars and that was bound to happen and will continue regardless of whatever new ideas come from the upcoming movies and series. Since this model is literally one stud different from the one in 2011 (they switched out the grey with white), I’ll just rehash what I said back then:

Building this one I figured it would end up like Day 9′s Imperial Shuttle, but it turned out to be another accurate micro scale creation. The shaping is great and I really like how they dealt with the dark red paint job running down the front slope and the double bubble cockpits. I can’t help but think that this micro is actually Wall-e dressed up in his Star Wars Halloween costume.
