    The only real new thing I see there is Commander Cody's vehicle mode and that two pack. And I'm pretty sure we've seen the two pack before in some form.

    Oh my GOD, another repaint of that damned Jedi Fighter figure? That's 5 now and this line barely has a variety of molds, this is like if Jetstorm, Jet Drone, Storm Jet, Jhiaxus, and Skywarp were all released in the same line and they made up 1/3 of it.

    Is it just me, or did they redo the entire damn line in new packaging? If so, why? I understand a new packaging style, the first has been out for a while, but I don't understand re-releasing every single toy in the line in the new style.

    EDIT: On second thought, maybe it's not. I'm not certain either way, I never paid much attention to this line. Carry on.

    I've seen the third wave up in the new packaging, it certainly looks like Darth Maul from the second wave is also getting that treatment.
    (the fourth wave onwards was only available in the new packaging, there was enough of a gap though that the third would mostly have cleared out by the time it returned in new packaging, as far as I know)

    AT-AT and Turbo Tank look great! Then again, SWTFs normally have nice vehicle mode anyway. Looking forward to seeing Bot? mode.

    Still much love the the Darth Death Star. Will we ever see the Snowspeeder in robot mode, or did I just miss that completely?

    Would have been nice if they would have shown us Commander Cody's bot mode. The vehicles look nice but looking like Star Wars characters in bot mode is what usually turns me off to the figures. Maybe if I did some head swaps on them they would seem cooler.

    How funny is it that the Luke\X-wing robot fell over.

    Mine barely ever stands for very long either.
    I wish the Japanese teams had designed these.

    Commander Cody's robot mode is 100% win.
    Luke\Snowspeeder -not so much.

    When are they gonna have the escape pod that becomes R2-D2 and C-3P0? :lol

    You lol, but I've been hoping for an Escape Pod/R2 from the beginning. Should be fairly easy to engineer that transformation.

    Cody looks good. Bringing the number of molds I dig to three.

    This line coulda been mind-blowing. Instead, it seems like it was a real churn and burn effort on Hasbro's part.

    I think the problem is the line has been where the American toy designers cut their teeth on transforming toys.

    You can see that the first few are pretty bad, but the latest ones have thicker limbs and Commander Cody is downright awesome.

    If you look at the portions of the vehicles that become the legs on the X-wing and Slave-1 toys, they really picked the wrong way to do it.

    The Luke robot looks like a collection of pipe cleaners and Boba Fett looks like he is 8 months pregnant -especially the way you have to arch his bag to get him to stand.

    I really wish Takara's designers had the chance to do this.

    stupid idea.always has been.

    pathetic excuse by george lucas to get even more money by capitalizing on a totally unrelated successful toy line.like he needs a third hot tub in his kitchen.
    where do these fit into star wars or transformers?i missed that scene where luke turns into his own ship.musta been one of the new prequels.sorry,but i quit after jar jar binx.even worse are attactix x-over--i hate tf toys that don't transform to begin with.i also missed the bit where the interdimensioal rift pulled cybertron into the star wars universe.at least the attactix sticks to new tf's, not ruining classic characters with a pitiful bid for money despite an utter lack of logic or
    even any attempt to cover the fact that it's all for the money...bought a
    luke/x-wing on clearance,smashed it with a hammer and sent it with hate mail to that greedy idiot lucas.
