The news just keeps on coming...

MTV has revealed a new Star Wars set, based on the Rebels TV series, which will be on display at SDCC this week. The Wookiee Gunship contains 570-parts and will retail for $69.99 USD, available in stores from January 2015.

75084 Wookiee Gunship

Protect Wullffwarro and his Jedi friend, Kanan Jarrus, with the powerful LEGO Star Wars Wookiee Gunship. As featured in the Star Wars: Rebels animated TV series, this amazing battle-ready craft has loads of weapons to see off any invading force, like movable front cannons and an elevating top cannon. When the action really heats up, raise the wings into attack mode and unleash the never-before-seen rapid shooters! If you run low on ammo, open the side hatches to access the spare supply, then lower the rear bay door and unload the mobile gun post. Includes 4 minifigures with assorted weapons: Wullffwarro, Kanan Jarrus and 2 Wookiees.

They also just released the life sized remote control "Chopper" droid, didn't they?

Thank Disney for making a new show.

Nice, but for the price I prefer 75052 Mos Eisley Cantina.

Looks like the wookies really stepped up their technology game...

Thats a lot of extra translucent green pieces, are we looking at another new weapon system?

The Wookiees are extremely disappointingly cartoonish. :-( Otherwise the set's not bad as a whole.

This may be a build up to the eventual Imperial Invasion of Kashyyyk making an appearance on the show (where after the Clone Wars and Order 66 the Wookies repurposed the Republic Army (by then New Empire) and CIS vehicles curtesy of the Battle of Kashyyyk) to fight off the Stromtroppers lead by Lord Darth Vader while he was hunting Jedi.

This build is also useful for a Clone Wars Battle of Kashyyyk Diorama/play area.

Those new curved side plates are too big for me. Seems like a megablox thing

New shooting mechanism, awesome!

@Lordmoral- It does look like a Republic Gunship. A Kashyyk invasion would be epic.

This set looks so cool. Might have to get it next year. The wookies will be a nice addition to my Battle of Kashyyyk sets.

LOL thought is was a MOC at first.

Looks pretty awesome...wookies look pretty silly though and there seems to be a whole truckload of stickers. Not to mention that gargantuan price tag...

Loving that.

I kind of like it. The soft curves and earth colors make it feel like what I would expect from a Wookie ship. With a touch of Hind attack copter thrown in.

Popravde, nic moc.

Where are the bad guys for the Wookies to fight?

I'm not a fan of these Star Wars Rebels sets but I have to say that the ship looks nice but the wookies are really bad.

Gravatar

I guess the rebels have helped the Wookies develop new machines in the show!

Doesn't seem to have the same 'identity' and style as other Star Wars vehicles....looks more an expanded universe effort.

Police gunship this year was the only SW set I bought, and looks like wookie gunship will be the one set for next year. Love the shaping and parts, and nice to see that 4Juniors ramp piece appearing in tan.

Looks good! I collect all the SW sets so this is already a must-buy for me. And more Wookies is never a bad thing.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I just about flipped when I saw this. Looks awesome!!! Just wish the price was 60 dollars instead of 70.

Gravatar
By in United States,

OK, that's significantly more awesome than last year's AT-AP reveal. There looks to be rapid-fire missiles, plenty of new parts in tan, and a really curvy and militaristic design. Love it! The price tag is a bit high, though, and it has too many huge stickers.

But if we get a winter wave of Rebels sets as well-designed as the August one, I suspect they'll all rock. And of course, the summer wave is going to be Episode VII. Bring on as many new ships as you can make, TLG!

$70 for 570 parts is really disappointing. I'm wondering if we'll see Star Wars being more expensive with Disney owning it now. :(

@blounty23

You noticed it too! There are no baddies to fight! This is very unusual for a SW set... (Well, not TOO unusual, but still a bit strange.)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Does this mean there will be another invasion of Kashyyyk??

Gravatar
By in United States,

Working LEGO Gatling Guns?!? Awesome!

@MrMonsieurGreen I feel the same way

By in Germany,

Probably more bley masquerading as tan, as always, so just another addition to my Rebrickable checklist, but a welcome addition nonetheless.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Awesome looking set. Nice to know that Wookies are going to be in Rebels.

Gravatar
By in United States,

We'll have to see how it fits into the show, but for that price point it doesn't seem like enough.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like it. I don't think the Wookies look bad at all. I like that this years batch have some decoration and it's nice that they don't all look like Chewy. I've seen a couple people upset with the new cartoon coming out but I love the fact that we have new characters to collect. I'm so freaking tired of getting the same characters over and over. I hope I never get another Anakin. Love the attack helicopter look of this set. Come on Rebels, keep bringing new sets and characters. Interesting that we have yet to see a rebels set that includes Sabine. Maybe that will be a promotional figure in October?

Can't wait for this set. It looks to be around £50 - £60, so it's not a bad price. My eatimate would be around £55.
