    I just wonder why they're so slow to release new SWTFs.

    They probably figure that there's going to be enough new Transformer products on the shelves this summer.

    That first one probably has the most solid bot mode out of all the SWTFs i've seen.

    The second one probably has the most hilarious. He has 2-3 times the mass of his normal body on his back.

    And a gool ol cockpit.

    Hey, that Episode #3 tank-bot isn't too bad at all I reckon.

    Hey, that Snow Speeder is absolutely awful I reckon. One step forward for the line and one step back.

    I know. I can't believe it either. It may well be the first SWTF I bother getting.

    Poor Luke, he's the star of the original movies and yet he can't get a decent Star Wars TF... too bad, too, cause I love the Snowspeeder.

    The Turbo Tank is awesome... and the AT-AT... I dont know what to make of that robot mode but I might get it cause... it's an AT-AT, how can you not?

    Poor AT-AT... one of my favorite vehicles, but just no way they could have made a good bot mode for it. At least it isn't absoloute shit I guess.

    You'd think they could come up with better robot modes...not for the tank I thought that one was actually alright, but the AT-AT and Snowspeeder...I mean come on...the AT-AT would look better with a different head maybe.

    Wow!

    That tank is easily the best-looking SWTF robot mode I've seen... which is not exactly high praise, but still... I like it a lot! I'm not even a Star Wars fanboy, and I must have it! :) 

    To be fair, the AT-AT is about as good in robot mode as one could realistically expect an AT-AT transformer to be. Which is to say, it would look very much at home stomping over a Warhammer 40K battlfield. As a TF though, it's a bit awkward.

    That poor Snowspeeder really looks like its got the same old problems as the other figures in this line... except worse maybe. For what it's worth, they generally do a really great job on replicating the Star Wars vehicle modes, but the robot modes often have horrible proportions and very unimaginative styling. Whoever the lead designer is on this line really needs to go back to Transformer school.

    Or judging from the tank figure, maybe he finally has. :)
