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.

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
>not even that big on star wars and I want this as a super robot fan


>mfw people calling the new designs hideous
