Gentle Giant Speaks About New Bust-Ups

From Gentle Giant:

Build your own Star Wars Clone Trooper Armada!

These pre-painted collectible press ‘n fit kits are NOW available through your local Toys ‘Я' Us stores. There are 2 sets: Armada 1 and Armada 2; each set retails for $15.99.

Bred and trained on the oceanic outlying place of Kamino, the unflinching loyal clone troopers are born to serve the Republic. Despite sharing identical genes, a clone trooper often fosters a greater sense of identity by giving himself a name, a stylized haircut or even the occasional tattoo. While a clone's role may not seem a enviable one, the hardships of battle foster an unparalleled camaraderie that only further cements his fraternal bonds.

These Clone Trooper Bust-Ups Sets make great stocking stuffers for the Star Wars collector in your family! Collect both sets today!

As I mentioned in a previous post, I already picked these sets up at Toys R Us over Thanksgiving break. They are simply repaints but nice ones. Armada 1 appears to feature Captain Rex, a Senate Security Clone Trooper, and a trooper from the 212th Attack Battalion. Armada 2 consists of what appears to be an AT-TE Tank Gunner, one of Plo Koon's troopers (from the Malevolence series), and a trooper in green deco (which will be released in Hasbro's 3 3/4" line this spring).
