Fellow Seibertronian shajaki has pointed us towards another image that had been almost missed in the flurry of excitement from Tokyo Toy Show 2018 over the weekend, featuring the Takara Tomy Star Wars Powered by Transformers toyline and its new Millennium Falcon mold!

I still cannot not see IDW Publishing's original character Anode in the supposed Han Solo facesculpt, but the addition of the crossbow and revamped packaging are a nice touch to the set, after the rebooted Darth Vader. Check out the image below, courtesy of singgg4 over on Twitter, and let us know what you think of the two scoundrel bots the ship turns into in the Energon Pub discussion boards.

So... it hadn't occurred to me... are the Darth Vader Tie Advanced and the Falcon to scale? also... I feel that Falcon really needs a good dry brush wash to pick all that panel detail out. Also a missed opportunity to do the Solo (Lando?) version with a bonus escape pod/bonus accessory. (though I'm sure these were in production before Solo was finalized).

Back to scale briefly... how big are these guys? I know they're not cheap.

I was wondering where the news for this guy(technically guys) were. Anyways, not bad. Definitely an improvement over the original in both bot and Falcon mode. Falcon mode looks really awesome and the bots look cool too. I don't think I would get it, maybe on sale, but that Darth Vader is a must have for me. I just wish his lightsaber was longer

But sadly crumbled. I have the old one, and while Han is alright, Chewy has his right arm permanently in Falcon mode cause his joints and hand GPS-ed right off, as did his one foot. Once I get this guy, that Falcon is permanently going in Falcon mode.

That all being said, This one is really quite cool, and I am super thrilled it will be here in a few weeks

Got a payment request from amiami for the Falcon today, so he is out and available.

Also, just happened upon this video as I was perusing Takara/Tomy's youtube channel.

Thanks to a heads up from site moderator Cobotron, we have a new video advertisement to share with you for the new Star Wars Powered by Transformers Millennium Falcon as Chewbacca and Han Solo! The video comes to us directly from Takara Tomy's YouTube, and gives us a brief look at the Falcon mode, a step by step transformation instruction, and then a look at the robot modes showing off some poses. We still aren't sure what inspired the Han Solo head, but the faceplate looks pretty good alongside his faithful battle wookie companion.

It's also cool to note how different the transformations are between this new figure and the older original. Everything is entirely new, with apparently nothing really recycled from the first design.

Check out the video below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

It's funny that we keep getting these things that no one is really asking for (Street fighter, Star Wars, Star Trek crossovers), but not the things that people really clamor for. Even Prime 3.0 wasn't really high on people's list. It seems to me people are happy we are getting it (I am super hyped for it myself) but would rather have newer MPs. Same for things like the PotP Dinobots, happy we got them, just not the update that we were looking for. I think the Millennium Falcon figures look awesome and I like how they integrated both characters. I just feel it's a little odd they are doing all these other things while the main toy line (PotP) and the main(?) cartoon series (PotP) are lackluster. I hope the new trilogy coming out really has some good stuff in it.

Something that came to mind, that makes this set really impressive: Falcon mode has ZERO kibble top to bottom front to back, and the sheer amount of paint apps is mind blowing.

the only crossovers with transformers i like is GI JOE the first crossover and wish they would have done more with toys like with marvel and star wars i get the idea of starwars and some of it is pretty neat but why does it need to be
with GI JOE its more feasible because they exist in the same universe
and now with Star Trek OMG why its illogical :HEADHURTS:

I agree, the Falcon mode is 100% perfect in every way

To me it seems to go together with Star Trek, since they go around exploring all types of different worlds they could eventually run into Cybertron, since Earth exists in both universes. Maybe it was contact with the Cybertronians that lead to the development of warp drive technology years before on Earth. A party from Cybertron looking for the Ark and the Autobots landed on Earth, made contact with the government, shared technology, couldn't find them, left to keep searching, and eventually Star Trek happened.
As for Star Wars, being from a long time ago in a galaxy far far away, perhaps in the golden age of Cybertron, when they were exploring different worlds, maybe they came in contact with the Star Wars galaxy. Shared their technology. Created a boom there. Some Transformers got in with the Jedi, others with the sith. Jedi and sith have a war that destroyed much of the Galaxy, using the Transformers technology to help them. Since the Transformers had been a peaceful race at this time, they left that galaxy for the most part. Some of the contingent stayed behind as robots in disguise, not yet willing to give up on them yet. They eventually meet up with the original trilogy heroes, revealing themselves and offering help to topple the empire, while others became corrupt from time spent with the Empire and now want to rule the Galaxy with them.

Woof, the face paint on these is abysmal, especially Han having silver paint smeared all over.
