I stopped buying this line two waves ago but I must admit that AT-AT is peeking my interest.

Wow. Other than Chewie, Darth Vader (Death Star) and Han...the rest of these are just terrible. They never really could finagle the right look out of these things.

So when collectors and families couldnt find their favourite movie toys even though the movie had JUST COME OUT, Hasbro in its infinite wisdom was making plans to ship out more pile of crap starwars transformers?????

WHAT THE HELL!

As usual, great vehicle modes, terrible robot modes.

That is a slice of crappy news.
well personally I cannot see why anyone wants to mix TF with SW.

Makes no sense at all.

Why dont they
-finish the titanium War Within lineup?(I know it is cancelled)
-get more movie stock out to customers?
-make some new movie molds instead of 90 repaints per character?
-make more G1 Robot Heroes?

Priority wise, SW should be the LAST thing on hasbros list.

I think that the turbo tank will be my first SWTF purchase, it actually looks like a real TF!


And my answer everyone's questions, the Star Wars collector is more important to hasbro than the TF collector is, as they have made more money selling to them as they have to us.

These are directed towards Star Wars collectors, not TF.

And when TF fans buy them, Hasbro wins twice.

I don't collect Star Wars (anymore, I did for a while), but I can't blame Hasbro for putting out products geared towards the more profitable set of collectors. And TF collectors just are not it right now.

Yes, even with the movie and the new show coming out, TF collectors just don't make as much money for Hasbro as Star Wars collectors do.

Anyone got Saesee Tiin who transformers into the AotC Jedi Starfighter with booster ring? He's among my favorite SWTFs yet. The fighter becomes the plain robot and you can attach the booster, turned into a jetpack. He's got a flip-up mask, revealing his robotic Saesee head beneath a Clone helmet and his 'third leg' (part of the booster ring) makes him super stable with the giant backpack on.

I've been considering Saesse Tiin. (freaky name, sounds like Saucy Teen) Thanks for the pos review.

I have several SW/TFs and I really like the ones I bought. The others I really don't dig. Can't wait for the Turbo Tank though, that one looks cool! I plan to get the death star and stick it next to Primus, but only if it ends up on clearance.
