And finally from Wonderfest 2018, still courtesy of our fellow Seibertronian primalxconvoy, we have images of the Takara Tomy Star Wars Powered by Transformers crossover series, of which we had already seen images of Darth Vader / Tie Advanced X1, and the Millennium Falcon / Han Solo and Chewbacca sets.

What you see in the images mirrored below is a closer look at both sets, including a diorama showing off the transformation from Tie Advanced to Darth Vader, similar to other jumproll sequences seen in the past, and multiple shots from various angles of the packaging, tags, and the two rogue scoundrels and scruffy nerfherders that form the fastest piece of junk in the galaxy. Take a look, and let us know what you think - will you be picking either of these up?

That tie advanced looks amazing and hanode still looks good to me.

Really looking forward to the Falcon. The head sculpts are awesome! The faceplate is a nice look for Solo

Yes. It's the one thing that ever come out for either the Hasbro or Takara versions that I've really liked. More of this style, please!

I didn't remember to check but I want to know if the Diaclone pilots and Star Wars figures are the same size. If so, there's room for cross-play between these two lines. I would have loved the same to have occurred with TR/Legends and then have future lines (MASK, GI-Joe mini vehicles, Star Wars mini vehicles, etc) share similar sized vehicles and pilots to cross play with.

Though cool, I don't see this line doing it in my collection. I enjoy the appearance of Vader, but the Falcon is not hitting the right wants for me. Now, do a Unicron/Deathstar and I'm in it to win it. I have a quick question though, are these just updated versions of the older Star Wars X Transformers toys from a while back?

Courtesy of Japanese toy blogger Alfes2010, currently posting on Twitter before updating the Snakas blog, we have a nice series of in-hand images of the Takara Tomy Star Wars Powered by Transformers Tie Advanced X1 / Darth Vader figure.

Shown in both spaceship and mecha Darth Vader robot thing mode, the images below also give us a look at the Vader and Stormtrooper minifigures that come with the toy, plus the lightsaber accessory, some poseability, fan features for the wings and a possible gerwalk-esque mode, as well as compatibility with the current Takara Diabattles line, too. Check it all out below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

Well, Alfes2010 was certainly creative with those poses...

It's just weird seeing the TIE Advanced X1 in such a light gray color, when we're so used to seeing toy versions in that bluish-gray color that dates all the way back to the original Kenner toy from about 40 years ago.

That's pretty cool that it's compatible with the diabattles line, and I love the wings on it

Hideous. Somebody pop off the ugly head and replace it with a Megatron head.

Wow, that is actually really good looking! Compared to the stock images, he looks better.

Thanks to fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999, a regular source for this type of news, we have an in-hand video review of the first in the new line of Takara Tomy Star Wars Powered by Transformers figures - the Tie Advanced X1 that turns into Darth Vader.

Take a look at the clip embedded below, including chuck's thoughts on the toy, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

Takara's take on a Darth Vader that Transforms into a Tie Advanced fighter is really solid. The plastic feels good while the transformation is simple but fun. Unfortunately, the overall price of the figure makes it hard to recommend to anyone but the most dedicated fan.

I got Vader. I got thoughts ;;)

Image

He's fun. But he's more "toy" than "collector piece". Which maybe I should have expected, and is right for it, but he's just simpler than I thought he'd be. All around, it's a decent figure, but nothing to rave about. Robot mode is posable enough to do some fun stuff, but lacks a couple joints (like a wrist swivel) to make him fantastic. And the tie wings, while quite movable, can't move every way you'd like. His shoulders like to fall out of place, but it's no deal breaker. The Tie mode, is very much a Tie. Not much else to say about that :lol:

I mentioned somewhere that he was slightly bigger than a Deluxe I think? Getting side by side with a current Deluxe, now I see he's more than slightly bigger.

Image

Final thoughts:
He's a good opener if not slightly underwhelming. But he is light years ahead of the old SWTF's and I look forward to the continuation of the line. Bring on the Falcon, and please make an X-Wing Luke!

From the pics, I can see what you mean about this CHUG-style Darth Vader, Shaj -- I would have expected him to be taller as well. He still looks fun, but I absolutely get why one might be underwhelmed.

Nice pictures! for his price point, I do wish he did do more. But he still looks good, and like you said, miles better than the previous SWTFs

Nice pics shaj! My interest in this toy is getting higher :D

Thanks guys!

The more I play around, the more fun I have with him. I think he'll become more relevant when he's got some proper bros to hang with.
