    Found this at the TRU in Cary, NC today. Haven't seen it anywhere, nor did I know it existed (though I only get about half of the Star Wars TFs).

    If this is old news, please [delete] or [lock]. I don't mind, lol.

    It looks like pilots were dropped,
    along with the old packaging.

    I don't mind it, they're too easily lose-able.

    I never lost a Diaclone Humanoid, so why would I start now with SWTF Pilots? :wink:  Anyway, this "new" line just seems to be more repaints.

    I'm in favor of them dropping the pilot figures. I think some (but not all) of the design flaws in SWTFs comes from requiring that they have working cockpits.

    Naw, we're getting a TIE Bomber Pilot, a new General Grevious, and a new Stormtrooper mold that transforms into some SW fighter I can't name.

    Ah. Well, that explains why I couldn't name them, then.

    Goo news. Tho I still say that the Anakin head mold looks like Hot Shot.

    I'm still waiting for some other SW characters to get made that are just begging to be done.

    -A Tuskin Raider into a Bantha
    -Jabba into his Sail Barge
    -A Jawa into a Sand Crawler
    -A Biker Scout into a Speeder Bike
    -Old Ben Kenobie into Luke's Speeder (Due to the character's outfit and color)
    -R2-D2 into an Escape Pod
    -Leia into her ship from episode 4
    -An A-Wing Pilot into an A-Wing
    -An Imperial Captain and Stormtrooper (maybe 2) into a Star Destroyer.

    Oh come on - some kind of Clone Trooper (Rex?) into an AT-TE, that's all I'm hanging out for ;)  Oh, and that Leia into the Tantive IV sounds cool.... (actually, most of those did, I just really want the AT-TE)

    I'm surprised that they dropped the pilots... they were one of the coolest things about them. I see a lot of people forget they're supposed to be robots in disguise because the toys have no need to be in disguise, they've got nothing to be in disguise for. Bring back the pilots! Or refit the earlier toys to not have cockpits.

    That bit really sucks.

    I saw those last week at a local walmart. I don't follow the line though, so I didn't know it was news. :)

    Pretty cool, but I fear it will just be a bunch of repaints...
    Still need to get that death star/darth vader TF though

    Easily the best mold from SWTF. Can anybody tell what else is remolded besides R2's location on the ship and anakins head?

    That'll be the first I buy in the new packaging. For some reason, I'm a completist on the SWTFs. Can't wait for the new molds, though.
