Yeah I feel like if they made Transformers Characters turn into Star Wars vehicles it would make more sense- OR if the Star Wars Vehicles themselves turned into completely original robot designs having nothing to do with established(non-robotic) characters, then THAT would make more sense...

That said, this Darth Vader looks pretty cool... If they do this with modern engineering it could be preeetety awesome...

Lets wait for this one, if it's takara this time, there's probably hope.

It was Takara before too. Takara always handles the engineering. Hasbro only deals with the design of the two modes. Also Takara's own designs arent always good. Like all those Go Combiners and Beast Wars Neo Shellformers.

Thats just the standard Legends Voyager price point, its the same as Broadside's MSRP: http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail ... agecnt%3D1

Dont expect any MP level out of this.

Oh, you were including the shipping in the MSRP in the article...?

I'm not sticking up for transformers Star Wars crossover they sucked even marvel crossover sucked worse than star wars but transformers toys are not perfect them shelves there are transformers toys that parts hanging off them and giving them big backpack I only bought one star wars crossover figure that's Death Star this series bot modes suck but vehicale modes are bettter

New Images of Takara Tomy Transformers Star Wars Crossover Tie Advanced X1

Postby Va'al » Tue Oct 10, 2017 12:53 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Thanks again to site sponsor TFSource, we have further confirmation and official images of the new Star Wars Crossover series (topical, given the hype building for the latest instalment of the new trilogy of movies right now), with the Tie Advanced X1 we previously reported on as the first figure of the line. According to the site, the Darth Vader converting figure also includes five mini Stormtrooper figures, and potentially the dark father himself, along with a lightsaber (unclear as to what size). Check out the images below!

This new line from Takara features famous star wars vehicles that transform to Star Wars figures! The first figure is Tie Advanced X1, a prototype version of the tie fighter that transforms into Darth Vader! Includes 5 mini stormtrooper figures, and presumed to include a mini darth vader figure as well as a lightsaber.

Ah, this brings me back to the days of when I played with my Star Wars Transformers (along with Cybertron Prime and Crumplezone). The Millennuim Falcon was my favorite figure(s) of the line (along with Death Star Vader). While they're not the greatest figures, I still have so many memories of joy.

This new TIE Advanced Vader looks really good, and a lot better than the old one!Would love to see how it transforms, but I hope we get more figures from the line (not just from the OT, but also from the prequels and the Disney trilogy). Oh, and release them to other countries!

Meh.. Star Wars.. Pfft!

I'll pass. Seeing as how I WAS a Star Wars fan back in the day, with Disney in charge..

Nah..

I think I am happier with Bayformers. At least there you know what you're getting. In the New Star Wars Disney franchise.. it's all rehashed BS and fan fiction masquerading as a film franchise continuation. I'd rather not go down that road.

It's a great toyline for the kiddies..

A great testament to the original series is that Hasbro and Takara are only doing the most beloved and recognizable versions.. Seems Like Kylo Freak and his cadre of wannabee Imperials are not as popular as old Anakin is..LMAO!

The original Star Wars is still king, reboots (pretenders) are out! :HEADHURTS:

Much like the Star Wars constraction sets from Lego; if you're going to make a line with robot-like designs, it only stands to reason that robotic (or armored - see the Fetts, troopers, and often Vader himself) characters will look infinitely better than weirdly human ones.

oh not again. Was a stupid idea the first time round. And I ain't just saying that cos I kinda loathe Star Wars these days. Also that Millenium Falcon turned into two very creepy Chewie and Han robots... Hated that damn thing.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean any offense to anyone. I'm just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Movieverse ('Bayformers' are my fave Transformers), Marvel UK G1, most Marvel US G1, 1986 animated movie.
Dislikes: TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron.

Ok....the only feedback I have is this:

1) It looks pretty cool. Final judgment once stock photos are presented.

2) Being a die hard Star Wars and Transformers fan I have to say I'm a tad disturbed with a handful of the comments...Yes, we are all entitled to our opinions. Yes, those opinions can and may differ...that being said, some of y'all need to chill out.

How bout we take the emotion and hating from 11 down to like 3?!? I love my collections, I love my toys.... I'll say that again, I love my TOYS. Toys are the heart of all this...us older collectors may enjoy these for nostalgia's sake, but in the end these are toys for children...Toys that will create memories and fun just like our first toys did.

So all you Atomic Bombs of negativity out there...tone it down.

You're not a moderator so ... no. People are allowed to express their opinions, as long as they're within the forum rules.

And I've yet to see any posts in this thread that go against the forum rules.

You're okay with these? Hey that's cool, personally, they've missed the point of "Star Wars Transformers" again. The majority of the first go round sucked because they slapped humanoid heads on robot bodies and it looked incredibly out of place.

I, and I have no doubt many others would agree with me, would prefer to see Star Wars vehicles transforming into Transformer characters. They could have little pilots/drivers that are SW characters, heck, we just had an entire line of tiny robots that transform into heads for bigger robots, that could be followed to!

But no, Star Wars is its own behemoth making other lines its *****. That's why I fully expect this second iteration to suck.

So am I the only one who actually likes the concept of the vehicles turning into mechs of Star Wars characters? Don't get me wrong, a Star Destroyer Megatron or an X-Wing Anode would be awesome, but I also really like the idea of this weird alternate universe where the Rebels and the Empire fight each other with giant mech suits. It kind of helps that the first one being made is Vader, since, well, like Kenobi said -- he's more machine than man. His suit's edifice on a giant robot makes sense.

Well when I did collect the original releases back in the day, I imagined that Cybertron was dormant from the war, and that somehow a human broadcast of Star Wars the original trilogy was received by Cybertron,maybe by a wormhole, and thus Vector Sigma instituted a reboot of the planet using the characters from the movies, which the new Transformers bodies were forged from, kinda like Teletran searching for objects to repair Megs and co. from in the original 3 part pilot of G-1.

so Vader was a reboot of Megatron's form complete with mental engrams of the movie giving him a different personality, and so on..

It's a great toyline for the kiddies..

A great testament to the original series is that Hasbro and Takara are only doing the most beloved and recognizable versions.. Seems Like Kylo Freak and his cadre of wannabee Imperials are not as popular as old Anakin is..LMAO!

The original Star Wars is still king, reboots (pretenders) are out! :HEADHURTS:


From what I hear, this whole Repetitive-ness in the newest trilogy, was actually George Lucas' plan.

So Lucas invented the corporate business model that is making Hollywood stale these days? Lucas invented the dreaded movie "Formula" repeat, repeat, repeat, make money, make money, make money. ahh.. My long lost question of how it all got started is now answered.

Lets keep it about the toys. We actually have a thread dedicated to Star Wars. (Two really if you count toys and non-toys)
