    Those were hideous, most of 'em anyways. I did like the battle droid however, but he is too fat.

    Oh GOD NO! Ahsoka Transformer? I'd get Shaak Ti or Aayla Secura, but Ahsoka isn't even that popular compared to the other two!

    But, in a perverse way, I am tempted by Thor... The lunacy and the absurdity of such figure is just impossible to resist.

    Capt. America as a Humvee-esque vehicle makes perfect sense, yet tragic and ironic now that GM's considering selling Hummer to the Chinese...

    God, those Star Wars ones are hideous. Too bad too, cause Kit Fisto is my favorite jedi. Ill definitely be getting Captain America, though

    I like how in a SW line even the most obscure and 3rd rate characters get their own remoulded head but in TF lines we just have to put up with a standard issue repaint

    still the droid guys look ok the rest still look like ass

    I could care less about the body! That Asohka head is an Arcee customizer's dream though.

    Sigh. The Marvel line is doing so well, but the Star Wars figures are just...crap. The Magna Guard ain't too shabby, but only in the respect that you could stick a Decepticon sticker on his chest and have a nifty KB or Decepti-clone to get 86ed by your Autobots.

    Seriously. Why is this so hard? I would buy these if the designs were even a fraction as nice as the Marvel Crossovers. These figures have been getting dumped out for what, 4 -5 years now? I've bought 3, and Death Star Vader was on clearance for $15. They NEED to re-vamp this line, maybe try doing them in the Animated style of figures. Something, anything to make them less hideous and kibble-licious.

    The Magna Guard is sorta cool looking. Not a big fan of the Marvel crossovers though.

    I'm not the only one that thinks they screwed up, right. I mean should'nt it be a transformer character that turns into a starwars vehicle, acompanied by a small starwars figure that fits in the cockpit.

    Example. optimus - millenium falcon megatron - darth vaders tie fighter and of course unicron - death star

    I'm not a huge fan of TWO MORE Jedi Starfighters- We already have Obi Wan and Saesee Tinn from this mold. Still, the Ahsoka gives me hope we'll see a Padme/ Naboo Starfighter or Leia/ whatever that ship was from the beginning of Star Wars. Of course, I'm still waiting for a Lando/ Cloud Car, and have been since the first ones were announced.
