Attacktix Republic Gunship and the Future of Attacktix

Republic Gunship:
  • There are two attack points on the ship the two target black flaps.
  • You have to attack it twice, it's design is such that one attack should not be able to trigger both targets.
  • A white button pops out from the bottom to defeat the figure.
  • The ship is tethered to limit is flying move
  • There are two actions for this figure.
  • It's action consists of either firing a projectile, and/or transporting a character. You can do one of these or both. It is a transport ship. If done right this will allow you to move one of your backline guys up, you can drop a melee guy right next to an opponent's figure and use your second attack action to ATTACK!
  • The MSRP is $9.99.
The Future:

The Attacktix line will see at least three more waves beyond the current series based on Revenge of the Sith.

We've already seen some of the figures from the second line making appearances at conventions like Celebration III and Comic-Con, and we've known the majority of Series 2 for awhile now, but what's next?

First of all, the Battle Case for Series 1 (which includes the exclusive Clone Trooper Sergeant) is due to arrive any day now. Good news for those who have been looking to complete their collection, and also have a nifty storage/stage for their figures.

Series 2 will follow the strategy of the first series, with a Starter Pack, Booster Sets, and Battle Masters. Featuring 30 characters from all 6 movies, this series is expected to debut this fall. The Starter Set figures will be repainted with new statistics.

Series 3 will include 30 characters from A New Hope, with a brand-new Starter Set, Booster Packs, and a new Battle Case. Should be out early 2006.

Series 4 will include 30 characters from Return of the Jedi, and the Starter Set figures will be repainted with new statistics, and a Jabba the Hutt Battle Master figure. Expected mid-2006.

And joining the Attacktix family with a Starter Pack, Booster Sets, and a new Battle Case is the Transformers, with characters from Cybertron and from the movie.
