Thanks to Japanese websites Amazon.co.jp and the main source, Takara Tomy, we have a couple more stock colour images of the Takara Star Wars Powered by Transformers Crossover Tie Advanced X1 Darth Vader figure!

More images were first seen here, featuring both modes for the main figure, plus the five Stormtroopers and Darth Vader mini-figures also included in the set. In addition, we have also embedded a new clip showing off the figure's transformation (still in its grey prototype mode), including the lightsaber part, and the clear plastic elements of the toy, such as the cockpit - take a look at it all below, and let us know what you think of this new attempt to make Transformers crossovers a thing again, after the debatable unsuccess of the previous go!

Young Jedi Knights action figures for me. Hot Toys, I'd like a 1/6 scale Tenel Ka, please. ;) :D

I'd get these crossover figures if they were Cybertronian characters and not made to look like actual Star Wars characters. For an example, I'd rather see a generic Seeker head on that TIE Fighter's primary mode than Darth Vader's.

Or figures of young jedi period. How else are we supposed to recreate that scene from episode III?!

This actually looks really good. I just wish they'd found a way to incorporate the wings into the robot mode instead of just having them hang off of the shoulders.

Courtesy directly of Takara Tomy on Twitter, we have an image from their Transformers booth over at Tokyo Comic Con 2017, taking place for the rest of the weekend and showing a fair few new figures and merchandise related to Transformers - and the various crossovers currently being explored.

In this post, we focus on the Star Wars Powered By Transformer Crossover Series, and both the full revealed Tie Advanced X1 Darth Vader, and what will be the second figure in the crossover series, the Millennium Falcon. The figure, with its still unknown robot mode (but probably either Chewbacca or Han Solo - or both, as a previous iteration of this figure attempted) is expected some point in 2018, and includes mini-figures of both its Wookie and scoundrel pilots. Check it out below!

I think the proportions of the new Millennium Falcon look better than the first version, but the Han Solo and Chewwbacca figurines look out of scale next to it? Hopefully, tje set can split into two mechs (and no more GPS Chewie!)

I'm actually excited for that Millennium Falcon. I have the original, which was really cool and I still like it, so I'm stoked to see another go around

The Falcon has made me interested... :-?

We have known for a little while that Takara was going to release a new transforming Millenium Falcon in their own Star Wars Powered by Transformers line. However, we had no clue what the robot mode(s) would be... until now.

Thanks to our usual Weibo source, it turns out that just as with the original concept, this Millenium Falcon splits into Han and Chewbacca. Also, similar to the origial release, they are very kibble heavy, featuring a lot of parts from the alt mode. A picture of the robot modes from Hasbro's attempt many years back can be seen at the end for comparison. Well, at least we know Chewbacca won't suffer from gold plastic syndrome this time (since that material is no longer being used).

Let us know what you think and if indeed Takara's take on this concept is better than Hasbro's.

It certainly is better, the head on the Hasbro han solo is absolutely hideous.

The Millennium Falcon pllooks better here since it's sleeker than the original, but I honestly prefer the robot modes of the original version; they look more humanoud and less restricted by their poseability.

Takara, you had me at Heavily Armored Wookie Warrior.

I may have to get this one for Chewbacca if nothing else.

I will only utter one word when it comes to Star Wars Transformers and that is:

YUCK.

:shock:

They look pretty decent! I have the original with a slightly broken Chewbacca stored away for the moment, but I will gladly pick this 2.0 version up. The falcon looks awesome here

Hopefully Chewbacca won't suffer from GPS this time around...

Out of curiosity, why is it sad? Is it just because you don't like the idea? While the actual idea isn't the best, I love the engineeringthat goes into these as there isn't a lot of space to play around with on the iconic vehicle designs of star wars
