We also have some new, out of package and in hand, images of the second set of figures in the Takara Tomy Star Wars Powered by Transformers series - the Millennium Falcom set which splits and turns into Han Solo and Chewbacca the Wookie robot modes! The images, mirrored below from their source over on the Facebook group Hong Kong Hobbymizer Discuss and the figures' owner Jimmy Yu and from toy blogger Alfes2010 on Twitter and their blog, show the minifigures, the robot modes and their poseability, the vehicle mode and its deco, and the accessories that come with the set.

Check it all out, and let us know what you think of this new revisitation of the Star Wars set, all in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

Now only time will tell if Cheiwe suffers from GPS again.
If you don't know what GPS is then type it into the search bar of the transformers wiki.

Unlikely, since GPS has been all but abolished for the last several years. Barring some other unforeseen structural issue with the plastic, there should be nothing to worry about! :D

I'm terribly amused by Chewie in action poses. His action pose is usually stick arm straight out or some light jogging.

Am I the only one getting a fembot vibe from this set? Mainly from the Han Solo bot. It clearly has an Arcee boob shelf. It also has what could be called high heels. Not to mention that the head kinda reminds me of Anode. I don't know, maybe it's just me.

Aha! We just assumed it was supposed to be Han because of the mini figure, but it's really Leia in her Boushh disguise, that would still explain the Chewbacca half, too.

After a number on in hand, in package, display and prototype images, we finally also have a video review of the Takara Tomy Star Wars Powered by Transformers crossover line's double set of Han Solo and Chewbacca - turning into their combined Millennium Falcon mode!

You can check out the clip, shared with us by fellow Seibertronian Hellscream9999 and sourced from YouTube reviewer Baltmatrix, embedded below, showing the tiny minifigures included with the set, the vehicle mode and its accessories, transformation, robot modes, and size comparisons with mainline Transformers figures in a number of class sizes (from Deluxe to Leader). Check it out, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

Honestly, this line feels like a tremendous missed opportunity. If they just tweaked the original molds (less derpy arms, a couple extra hinges to reduce backpack clutter, etc) and gave them better decoes, they could have better product with less money spent on design. Instead, we're getting arguably-worse designs of figures that have already been made, with all the costs of new molds thrown in?

I cannot believe folks are saying the new Takara line is in anyway better than the old Hasbro series. I know the Hasbro toys had issues (many of them in fact) but the new Han and Chewie are hideous, and Vader isn't much better. And don't get me started on Han's head mold.

Differing taste is all.

Mine's in my HLJ pile of loot. Waiting with another Star Wars'y thing, and waiting on another Star Wars'y thing to drop soon so I can ship 8-}

But parsecs are units of distance, not time. :-P

>Face sculpts have more dynamic angles/look less like hideous mechanical approximations of the pilots and more like the head of a legitimate super robot
>Dynamic silhouettes thanks to alt-mode shapes/details/mass being used well
>Han is (marginally) less clunky
>Cockpit becomes fusion cannon
>Chewie has a heroic V-shaped chest
>Both look like actual, legitimate, proper super robots
