    Oh hell no, Saesee Tiin's head's got to go when I get it! Maybe they'll repaint it into Obi Wan's starfighter...

    I'm glad to see SWTF didn't break tradition by giving the Starfighter a decent robot mode.

    But the Gunship-bot doesn't look bad at all. And both alt-mode are outstanding as usual. I'm still most pumped about the Clone Tank.

    ST has a helmet and his ring is removable from what we saw at Toyfair (that or it was broken. . .). If I get him, he'll definately be wearing his helmet to help cover up that mug.

    I really like the Gunship. It's pretty cool. I'm a bigger fan of the Alt modes than the robot mode.

    Woah, they're marking these down to HTS to $10 right when they come out!? In that case, I might brave HTS' bad customer service again and order them there...

    I think that's a part of the HTS sale going on right now. These will probaby not be out before the sale is over. If they are, though...I'll get 'em.

    It pretty much can't be, but the Republic gunship looks almost like a remold of the ARC-170 toy.

    I'll give the gunship a shot I think, just cause I love the ship. But it'll probably suck.

    Maybe? This is one of the most repaint-happy lines I can remember, of course they will.

    By the looks of those pics it looks like the Jedi Starfighter mold don't allow for the ring hyperdrive unit to be disconnect - can anyone verify? 'Cause if that is the case then that mold is serverely lacking the aesthetic of the movies

    MAN. If there's one thing I have to say about the SWTF line is that they're UGLY. I mean, kudos for Transforming a Star Wars machine, but I feel it could have been done much better for most of the line. The heads are just cheezy, and the robots modes look thinned out(as in "bring them to the taffy puller, oompas!"). They just don't look right.
    Honestly, that Seisee Starfighter could look nice if it were more stouter and had a different head...

    XD Woulda been neater if it was what people originally thought the line would be- the Transformers reformatted into the Star Wars machinery(though I dunno if there'd be issues with TF's cross-breeding into SW's toy line XD hahaha)

    The Clone Pilot would look awesome if it weren't for the torso. But since they have to cram pilot figures into all of these, and the cockpits have to be in the torso (except Chewie), the designs really suffer.

    Saesee Tinn doesn't look that bad, though it might not have forward/backward shoulder articulation. Aside from that, he seems to be well articulated. He also has a long torso, but it doesn't look as bad in this case. And based on the Toy Fair pictures, the Hyperdrive Ring seems to be removable. Of course, I'll be saving my money for the innevitable Kit Fisto repaint/remold.
