    You'd think they'd try to make the line more appealing first...

    Oh, and here's more pics of the Imperial Shuttle and the Millenium Falcon...

    The boba fett/jango fett repaint was a given soon as they announced the characters. Isn't anakin a repaint of obiwan or is there some remolding in there?

    Anakin was a remold and repaint, yes, he got a new head. They showed Jango off as the first straight repaint at ToyFair, never saw the good shots of the Emperor though... Huh, they actually did try to get the face right

    The vehicles modes are pretty nice. The robot modes are just goofy. If they had made the robot modes just some bot it would have worked better. The Emperor/Shuttle one is the best I think. Kinda looks a little like Vector Prime.

    Dude, they'll DO it! Don't give them any ideas!

    I don't mind the heads, but there's no point if the bodies don't match -- which they CAN'T, because they're freakin' robots (and horrible looking ones at that).

    I almost don't mind that Millenium Falcon mess up close. Swap out the heads, and the bot modes almost look passable. And the Emperor Shuttle reminds me of Cybertron Jetfire -- but capable of standing.

    A good idea, but I'd like to see a Sandcrawler that becomes a Jawa, a Bantha that transformes into a Tusken Raider, and/or a Jaba as his Sailbarge.

    Why is this news? These pics have been up at BBTS and Entertainment Earth for several weeks. :D 

    Well, at least you didn't post them in Toyark this time. :p

    I'll go along and say the Emperor toy comes closest to looking like a 'real' Transformer, old man head 'n' all. At the risk of mixing my Sci-Fi metaphors, The Millenium Falcon set looks like the Borg tried to assimilate a junkyard. :)

    Totally not understanding all the bashing the Millennium Falcon is getting-- looks to be the best SWTF to date, excluding possibly Grevious.

    The Emperor looks pretty good, except for that weird cape-wing thing. That should fold up onto his back.
