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

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.

YUCK.

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

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

Is it just me or is the head on the new Solo look more like an actual Transformer now?

What I mean it looks like the standard Transformer look and not a robot Harrison Ford.


(My wording is probably weird here but I'm not sure how else to describe it.)

I agree it is sad.. :-( :-( :-(

Those who dont learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.

The concept is just dumb. It was dumb then and its still dumb now. How cool would it have been if they just focused on the vehicles to homage Star Wars and let the robot modes homage actual Transformers characters? Then they would be true "Transformers" crossovers, rather than just on the sole basis that they can transform. Right now they're no more "Transformers" than a Gobot. The one thing they are not is Transformers crossovers.

Imagine tie fighter seekers, vader tie fighter megatron, x wing fighter optimus, cloud speeder bumblebee, milenium falcon ironhide, slave 1 soundwave, death star unicron, so many possibilities. But instead they give us robots wearing circus masks....twice.

It was only yesterday that we got the Full Reveal of the Star Wars powered by Transformers Millenium Falcon that transforms into Han Solo and Chewbacca, and now today we have new pre-orders for the new figure.

These pre-orders come to us from various sponsor sites, and lists the combining figure at a $134.99 price point, around the same price as a Takara Masterpiece medium sized figure such as Inferno and movie Ironhide. You can find the pre-orders listed below for the sites that currently have the pre-order. The combiner is expected to arrive in June of this year.

This new figure is based on a similarly designed Millenium Falcon figure from 2006 that split apart to transform into Han Solo and Chewbacca, with Han forming the front half and Chewie the rear. That figure suffered from Gold Plastic Syndrome, which caused Chewie to fall apart. This new figure uses a different transformation scheme while still having the individual robots form the same halves of the Falcon.

Check out the pre-orders below. Are you ready for this new and exciting figure? Do you want a Battle Wookie and Han Solo? Will you be picking them up? Let us know in the comments section below!
