STAR WARS 501st Legion Attack Dropship Rare Hard to find MISB
New in the original box, unopened, is in like new condition. Pictures 1-4 are of the actual item. The remainder are stock photos (Because the items are unopened, right?)
501st Legion Background:
These highly trained tactical ops clone troopers accompany Anakin Skywalker on the mission to destroy the Jedi. Skywalker and the troopers storm the Jedi Temple and, with crack marksmanship and coordinated team maneuvers, quickly eliminate the Jedi inside, including all of the children.
A 501st Legion attack dropship flown by a 501st Legion Clone Pilot deploys troopers into combat against Battle Droids. Bearing the iconic markings of the elite 501st Legion, the dropship has cannons and chin guns to drill deep into battle zones. The pilot briefly lands with the ship's cockpit rotated into deploy position to drop up to two troopers onto the field before flying back into the air to provide ground support.
501st Legion Attack Dropship
The 501st Legion Attack Dropship was part of the first and only wave of Hasbro's 2013 Movie Herores Class I vehicle collection. It was first put on display in their booth at Celebration VI along with the three other sets in its assortment, included the 501st Legion AT-RT, Yoda's Jedi Attack Fighter, and MTT Droid Fighter sets. Each set included two repacked or kit-bashed action figures and a brand new or repainted single passenger vehicle. In this instance, all three parts are simple repaints.
Here is what you get:
- Clone Pilot Action Figure
- Removable Helmet
- Battle Droid Action Figure
- Removable Backpack
- Attack Dropship Vehicle (7 pieces)
- 2x Projectiles
- Instruction Sheet
- Fighter Pods Pamphlet
Look around, they are near impossible to find. Don’t confuse the 501st Attack Dropship and the Republic Attack Dropship. They are two very different vehicles with the 501st being a very limited production line.
