    I think the general concensus is that it's not that great. But it's not the worst toy you could buy.

    I love my Star Wars TFs Vader. He's cool. I can't wait for Boba-fett and Darth Maul.

    No.. It is mediocre at best. Buy something else like a Sigma 6 figure or some REAL TFs..

    I bought it. It's an OK display piece...but not very fun to play with. But you can have some fun doing mock TF vs. SW battles like this:

    IMHO...it's a pretty sweet rendition of Vader's TIE...but an ass poor robot. I gave it to a buddy and he said that he TF'ed it once and will keep it in vehicle mode till the end of time.

    I passed. It didn't look great at all. I did get Luke and Obi Wan. They are okay. I am pleased with them more for the vehicle modes and decent robot modes. However if I didn't like the Jedi and X-Wing fighters so much, I would have passed.

    So I guess general concensus is that if you like the vehicle, get it.

    If you like Vader or Vaders TIE then yeah. He's one of the better figs for the line.
    Plus a nice sized lightsaber to Jedify your TF's
    Put a big Decepticon sticker on him and buddy him up with Megs so they can work on getting that Death Star to transform. hehe

    Tempted to complete the Action Fleet collection now and they run about the same price these days, and they don't even transform.

    I'm not overly impressed with them, seems there was a requirement for accurate vehicle modes that meant there were a lot of sacrifices in the robot modes. I'll pick one or two up should they be discounted.

    Yeah I keep thinking they're $10 bucks since that's about what they feel they're worth.
    $15 is pretty steep for the quality issues alone on these.
    Plus they don't even stand close to a deluxe sized TF. They show the SWTF's how it's done.
