The only ones I have are the Death Star and Luke as the X-Wing.

The Death Star is awsome. I really wish they had made Galactus to go with him and Unicron. He's a shellformer, but he has a perfect sphere and he's very nicely detailed. The entire line was worth it just for this one guy.

Luke sucks. I never got into him. Didn't like anything about the bot mode when I got him in-hand.

[quote="LOST Cybertronian"]I don't have any Marvel transformers but i have a few Star Wars ones and my favorites are...

Darth Vader/Death Star

This is IMO the greatest and only crossover TF I own and it is awesome in it's own right. I have it displayed next to Unicron and even though the Chaos Bringer is slightly taller DS Vader is a FORCE to be reckoned with. The worst is Star Destroyer Vader with that Empire logo on his helmet...are you kidding me? #-o

I remember when the crossover with Star Wars was first announced I thought to myself "yes, the merging of 2 great worlds", but when they were released I was filled with much dissapointment...'nuff said! :VEHI:

The "Iron Man Humvee" was originally Captain America. It has outstanding proportions, and just a bit of repainting and a resculpted head turned him into my version of Classics Roadbuster:

As for Star Wars, I actually kinda like Clone Commander Cody. His hips are mediocre, but the rest of his robot mode is awesome, and his vehicle mode, while a rather generic sci-fi armored personnel carrier, is still respectable.

I like the idea of the Star Wars/Transformers crossover but not sure I like the bots turning into their pilots. I would rather them being either existing characters taking on Star Wars Alt modes or new and original characters.

I own several Star Wars Transformers: Jango Fett, both paint schemes of the ARC-170, Episode 3 Darth Vader, and the Tiger stripey Republic Gunship. I have only opened one of them and it felt like it was poorly constructed with flimsy cheap plastic. I left all others in their packaging.

The smaller y-wing mold has some good merits. It's about scout-sized, and while it lacks bicep or thigh swivels, it can still pull off good poses, and it's not a shellformer! :lol: I remember when I bought it, I couldn't put it down; the transformation is both fun and intuitive.

Sadly, Seibertron doesn't have a gallery of it, so here's a picture! (I just realized I don't have any of my own, I should fix that!)

Thanks to those wrist swivels he can actually pull off a two-handed swing, it looks pretty good!

i have quite a few of the deluxe SW crossovers, disappointed with most of them except for a couple.
however the scout sized ones were a great buy, especially once i saw them at TJs/Marshalls.

the Marvel ones were mostly miss not hit but i am happy with the one combiner they did.
keep him permanently in gerwalk mode.

I wonder if Hasbro plan more Marvel Xovers? The Star-Wars ones were pretty bad, but the Marvel ones were pretty good so far.

I wouldn't mind having the Punisher changing into a '70$ muscle car.

The only crossovers I ever actually wanted to buy were the only two never released: a 2-pack of Iron Man and Warmachine that combined into, I think, a large assault vehicle.

Iron Man turns into a Light Cycle...for some reason...and Warm Machine into an APC, like Rotf Breacher. Their combined altmode is some sort of...hovercraft..jet..."Super bomber" thing.

That sounds accurate. Cheers

I got the Iron man / Spider-Man combiner... Iron Man was the better of the two in that pack, mostly because Spidey's helicopter mode was hollow and really weak.

My wife got me the Avengers Crossover Captain Amerca/Humvee for by birthday a few months ago. It's a nice big, solid figure. I liked the darker colors on this version, compared to the brighter comic style version.
