The latest LEGO Star Wars UCS set, and the last of summer 2021, has finally been revealed. After many LEGO fans were expecting to see an official reveal at LEGO CON, 75309 Republic Gunship was shown off earlier today in an official YouTube live stream. It's not too long until fans will be able to get their hands on the 3292 piece set with it being available from 1st August.
The Republic Gunship comes after a LEGO Ideas vote in 2020 that allowed fans to decide the next LEGO Star Wars UCS. As you can guess, the Republic Gunship won with more than 30,000 votes and taking 58% of the total votes. Hopefully after this 18 month wait fans won't be disappointed.
The build is the same version that can be seen during the Battle of Geonosis in The Clone Wars. It includes two pilot cockpits, swing-out spherical gun turrets, two loaded cannons, super-long wings and sides and rear hatch that can both be easily opened.
As with most Ultimate Collecter sets, it includes a display stand with an information an plaque and space for the two Minifigures included, Clone Trooper Commander with a blaster and Mace Windu with a lightsaber. The stand even allows you to reposition the Republic Gunship so it can be angled at a mid-flight pose.
