I haven't seen a thread on this guy yet, just picked him up at Target. Star Wars Transformers. I think I have most of the regular size except for the Republic Cruiser that just looks terrible. While I think some of them are just fine, there are others that were among the worst transforming toys ever made. Still, I like the regular-sized version of the Y-Wing (love those little holstered pistols), and I've been interested in the new smaller 'basic' sized SW Crossovers. For its size, this is a good Transformer. The Y-Wing comes packed in fighter mode, it's the pudgy version of the Y-Wing from the Clone Wars cartoons. It has a decent level of detailing and features, the front landing skid pivots down (the two rear gears are permanently deployed). The Y-Wing has what could be a bomb bay door in the lower back part of the ship body - I can't figure out what else this moving flap is used for, it doesn't figure into the transformation or the mech mode. So let's say it's a bomb bay, the Y-Wings were bombers, right? Y-Wing Mode IMAG0131 | Flickr - Photo Sharing! The Y-Wing comes with a grey rifle that looks like it was just taken directly from a Star Wars figure. Still, it fits with the mech figure nicely (so much better than a 'missile launcher held loosely in the mech figure's fist' kind of weapon), and it can fit into either side of the landing gear, there's a little clip formed on the underside that holds the rifle. Note, too, not much robot kibble visible in Y-Wing mode. Y-Wing Mode - underside showing rifle storage IMAG0132 | Flickr - Photo Sharing! Transformation is easy but somewhat clever, and different from the regular sized version. The side engines become both the arms and the lower legs. There's not much of a backpack in mech mode, much better than the wobbly backpack that the other Y-Wing sports. Mech mode is limited by its size, but overall not bad, at least as good as the majority of the full-sized Star Wars Crossover bots (yes, I am damning with faint praise.) He has hinge ankles, double hinge knees, rotator hips (they're a ball joint, but the front parts block them a bit). So he can pull off a kneeling or running pose decently. The ball jointed shoulders are blocked but overall good, there are somewhat blocked double hinge joints at the elbows and hinged wrists. He can hold his rifle with two hands, which is always a nice feature. You get a decent range of motion, considering the size. Rotating head. Mech Mode IMAG0133 | Flickr - Photo Sharing! Kneeling, holding rifle with both hands IMAG0134 | Flickr - Photo Sharing! So, in the world of SW Crossovers, this is one of the good ones, I even like him better than his full-sized version. I'm impressed by how they managed to fit a decent and somewhat poseable mech mode into this small a figure. Definitely worth the price. I may need to check out more of this size class. I'm wondering how they can manage to do this size class so nicely while making that quad changer too? I don't plan to get it, but that is one messy looking toy. Tim "toy geek"
