    I got the frist two I saw anyway. :rolleyes:  Star Wars Transformers Darth Vader and General Grievous. When I first heard of SWTFs I was like WTF? They have about as much to do with Transformers as the Animorphs did. Anyway, these things ROCK! :thumbs2:  I found them here at my local Target in NOVA (Northern Virginia) this AM. I am going to have fun finding out which of my Transformers can hold the Light Sabers. :lol  OH well, maybe I'll even give the SWTFs honorary faction symbols courtesty of Reprolabels. :)  Vader and Grievous certainly fit the Decepticon profile. :D

    I planned on getting them the whole time. I agree, they do rock. I hadn't thought about the faction symbol idea. I may do that too. I've got some around here somewhere...

    Well, no one said the Empire was good at building Transformers. :)  Even with possible not so good qualities, I still think these these Transformers will become classics.

    It would take a good talent to make a believeable story, but if Transformers did meet up with Star Wars I could see transfomation information being exchanged for Light Saber technology. The Empire and the Decepticons do seem to have the same goals.

    Separatists, technically. Grievous died before the Empire was officially formed.

    Actually, the seperatists are what became the rebellion. The empire, before it was the empire, was the galactic senate.

    Wasn't the empire formed in ep II? I seem to remember Mace calling Palpatine "Emperor" when they came to relieve him of duty after Greivous was killed... I dunno.. maybe it was Yoda at the end...

    I just wish the bot/human modes were as nice looking as the vehicle modes! The Vader and Obi-Wan ships look as good as their bot modes look bad! Maybe I'll pick up one of them.....I'll wait for Luke.

    This isn't exactly true either. A small group within the senate, a commity secretly meeting to find a diplomatic way to end the civil war. They are the roots of the Rebelion.

    Palpatine and his Clone Army became the empire.. the senate was eventually disbanded. (okay, I'm a geek)

    You nailed it.

    Insane Galvatron, you mean EP III when you described those events not II.

    Yes, those events I described were in EP III. My point was that the empire was already in place. I was thinking it was a result of the politics in EP II.

    Upon further remembrance, it was the attack by Mace that Palpatine used to convince the senate to let him stay in power and form the empire. It was Yoda who called him emperor.... I think.. Someone who has more recently seen EP III might want to clarify.

    Thanks everyone for the "Empire" clarification. I've seen the SW films, just not a Geek about them the way I am about Transformers. :(  Anyway, whomever and whenever the bad guys of the SWs universe would have a lot to share with the Decepticons by all their various names. That sould have it covered. :D

    I love the SW TF's . Even if Vader does have the same head as a pez dispenser.

    They're definitely on the right track with these. Hopefully the'll fix the little flaws down the road. Like give Vader more shoulder so his head does'nt look as goofy just sitting there, and fix Grievous's legs.

    never thought of that - getting these would arm your Binaltechs with lightsabers!

    unfortunately, none of the good guy SWTFs are any good. Still can't get over the scale issue with Obi Wan - the little astrodroid is taller than the human Obiwan!

    Got them, opened them, and I love them. :thumbs2:  Vader is the best over all. I just love the Jedi Starfighter but have to agree that the bot mode teh sux.

    I still haven't made up my mind about GG yet. If the other toys are as good as these, they too will join the Dark side...

    ... of my room's shelves. :confused2
