Who gives a **** what they want? They've got entire aisles dedicated to their toys, they shove other lines out of the way every time a movie comes along. They need to learn to share! :-P

I've come to discover that they're like GI Joe fans. They're on an island all their own and don't acknowledge that their part of a larger hobby.

Cue the mass hysteria :-P

While I agree that it would be great to see Transformers characters used for this crossover instead of Star Wars-themed transforming mech suit whatevers - it'd be beneficial aesthetically as well IMO, having proper robots instead of trying to approximate human features, and at this point we're used to Transformers characters having more than a single iconic appearance - I suppose what they're doing is reasonable from a business perspective. Something tells me that all other things being equal, Transformers fans are more likely to buy a non-Transformers-character transforming toy, than Star Wars fans are to buy a SW vehicle that turns into a Transformers character.

Admittedly I speak from the perspective of only one fandom, not being inside the Star Wars group (specifically that part that's also interested in toys). Even so, I just get the feeling that SW fans are gonna need more convincing to buy these things than we are, so business-wise it makes more sense to skew the appeal more in that direction. Of course as with any of my many assumptions, I could also be totally wrong, that's also a distinct possibility :lol:

Speaking as a major star wars fan i honestly don't give a **** about what they turn into. The main reason I'm buying this (and I'm sure many other collector's feel the same) is for the gorgeous alt mode. Sure the fact that it transforms is neat and all but it's hardly a selling point.

Um no. There might be a few but by and large, most TF fans know they're part of a larger hobby and what one side does affects them too.

Not at this size. Most Star wars vehicles are released at a scale big enough to use with 3.34" figures which make The ships themselves quite big, or at a very small hot wheels like size. This is a pretty good way to have detailed replicas that don't take up a lot of space.

Fair enough ... that seems pretty shitty, I thought there would have been stuff in that size range already. Here's hoping the mob in charge of SW toys sees the popularity of vehicles this size and produce their own and **** off and leave Transformers alone.Image

Images of Grey Model for Takara Star Wars Powered By Transformer Darth Vader

Postby william-james88 » Sat Oct 21, 2017 11:25 pm

While we have seen the colour images of this new Crossover Darth Vader toy, its grey model is being shown at Japanese toy shows and these close up images give us a good idea at the detailing on the figure. Please note that due to other images appearing on the Twitter pages these were found on, we do not recommend opening the links at work.

This toy will retail for nearly 5000 Yen in Japan and be around the $50 price point from US importers.
