    The diarrhea deco on the Trooper is pretty cool but otherwise those are some lame toys. At least they gave one of them a new head.

    Well I -was- thinking about getting the AT-AT repaint, but that's barely different from the original so pass.

    crossovers and the really bad cheaply jointed self destructing chinese knock off robots belong in the same bin.

    Maybe that's to harsh. I don't like them because their celebratory only to the franchise that is not transformers. If you like them. Its probably because they are good filler for more star wars action fleet vehicles.

    The robots from them however are shell formers mostly

    Seems sort of a waste to give a head remold to a barely-repainted repaint.

    Palpatine looks cool, but I don't like this line enough to purchase repaints, just 1 of each mold for me, thanks.

    When's Grevious 2.0 and the TIE Bomber Pilot coming out? That's what I wanna know.

    Agreed. I want new molds if any. I got 1 of each of the molds and 3 of the Jedi Star fighter (anakin, Obiwan, Vader) and do not want 10 different colors on one mold. The only time I really want that is Starscream and the seekers/clones.

    Picked up a bunch of these when released in the 30th packaging for MOSC display...if these follow that I'll probably pick up Palpatine...if its going to be in the blue/white packaging I'll pass...

    Can anyone confirm the packaging type...?

    These just worse and worse all the time. It's pretty bad when I'm a big Transformers fan and a huge SW fan and don't own a single one of these.

    Hasbro and Lucas, please quit cheapening the legacy of both lines and kill these!!!!!!!

    Um... HELL YEAH!!! Seconded!!!!

    Although I will admit that I recently (w/in the last 2 wks) picked up all of the SWTFs. What can I say, I got a really good deal on a lot of 15 of them and Solo/Chewy and Death Star Vader are actually really cool.

    Oh and yeah these are definitely coming in the news crappy Clone Wars packaging, but more importantly, they no longer come w/ the mini-drivers, which in my opinion really were one of the better things about this line (mini Troopers and mini Vader rock).

    I have at least one of each mold from this series and have been pretty happy with them.

    The biggest problem with the line has always been the sacrifices made to the bot-modes so that the alt-modes look as accurate as possible. The result of this is a lot of backpacking and kibble. Fortunately if you just leave them in their alt-modes all the time you end up with a pretty sweet collection of space saving Star Wars vehicles.

    The second biggest problem has been the overuse of remolding. WAY too many repaints in the line. I think around 1/3rd are repaints.

    And why no Leia turning into a Corellian Corvette? Seems obvious to me. Hard to make her look "hot" I suppose.

    As for these two new figs, eh... yay.. more repaints? Was there ever a black Lambda-class Imperial Shuttle in any Star Wars material? I don't remember seeing one. The "Oops I crapped my pants" AT-AT looks familiar at least.
