    Ah, how the Battle Droid should've looked the first time through. Sold on that one, pass on the V-Wing.

    ^Agreed. That Battledroid looks so much better now. I'll still pick up the V-Wing too; love that ship...

    Boba Fett and Commander Cody look like their original characters repackaged. Good for anyone who couldn't find them before.

    The Clone Pilot V-Wing and Commander Battle Droid are recolored and look better than their original releases.

    The Droid and V Wing will join my recently bought Ahsoka Tano and Magna Guard figures as new additions to my collection.

    It's a damn shame they don't pack in the mini figures anymore.

    Pass on all of these. I already have at least one version of each mold. No need for any more than that.

    I was hoping Anakin / Twilight would come out with the Battle Droid and V Wing repaints. Looks like I'll have to wait a bit longer.

    Same here!

    But I'm not collecting anything anymore. Collecting is fucking stupid! Burns up all your money & then the crap just sits there collecting dust & taking up space.

    He'll probably come out with the Y-wing in the wave after this one.

    Yeah, I've decided to back off on being a completionist for this line...these repaints are uninspired, really. I like the molds, but I'd only pick these up during a dry season of other new toys, or a decent clearance price. More Original Trilogy ships, please.

    Wait... Y-Wing? When did that get announced? I totally missed it.

    SWEET! Stoked for more IV-VI stuff. Good lord I hope they do the A-Wing too.

    They look..interesting.

    - Bad designs
    - Bad quality control on all figures
    - No comic, video game or other media to inspire interest in the line.
    - No actual "Transformers" Characters (Thus not in any way a "cross-over" line)

    F A I L all the way to Endor and back.

    -I've I had no problems with the QC on the figs I've bought. Not sure where your complaint is coming from.
    -No comics/games/media to clog up the channels for other products is perfectly fine.
    -No "Crossover" figures turn into Transformers characters. Because it would totally make sense to have an X-Wing turn into Optimus Prime right? None of the Marvel figures do either.

    This line is full of win since they are small Star Wars vehicles that turn into Star Wars characters. Yes, the designs are a little basic, but I leave them in alt-mode most of the time anyways.

    TFW2005.com didn't cover it for some reason, but Tformers' sister site JediInsider had a picture of it:

    Y-Wing SWTF

    Tag says coming out 10/30/09.

    WOW! How the hell did TFW/Toyark miss that figure at SDCC? (Toyark took the pics there I believe). Too bad it's a Clone Wars Y-Wing and not an Original Trilogy Y-Wing. CURSES! Still, gonna get it. It looks pretty damn good, even with the quirky looking legs.

    Thanks a bunch for that Beastbot X. I knew something was wrong with only one new mold being announced. I.. sensed a disturbance...

    I bought the Tie-Fighter Darth Vader. I thought it was awesome.

    Then i bought Luke Skywalker / snowspeeder and i was dissapointed.

    Then i bought Bobba Fett and i thought, "WTF is this s#1t !!!??? Who are they are trying to fool with this cr4p ???". Ugliest buttformer ever, a pregnant Bobba Fett with arms that are destroyed when you play with it.

    I have bought some after that, but only after careful consideration. At least the original figures had a tiny pilot that added value to the figure (ship + pilot at least were good), but since they dropped the little pilot figurine (probably 1 cent worth of plastic) i don't buy these figures automatically (as i do with the Transformers Universe figures).
