    That quad changer is kind of ridiculous especially if the said price is 130 or 160 I can't remember exactly.

    Wow. The Anakin/Vader quadruple changer looked okay at first, but the proportions look terrible here, and those altmodes are laughably bad.

    Crap, now I have to get that AT-TE/Keeli...

    Everything else is rather crap, though.

    ...I'm fairly certain that these almost $20 transformers look worse and worse each successive wave and year. And I swear to god, that Jedi Starfighter mold just needs to die in a fire.

    just uniformly awful, even by SWTF standards they are pretty bad.

    Damn these look like crap. I guess lucus doesnt care about his franchise anymore. Hasbro and lucas should be ashamed of the absurdly terrible designs we are seeing. These would be great in 1994. The real big shame is sw vehicles would have been perfect for cybertronian alt modes. Wouldnt keep them if they were free

    That was an international price of somesort. I think BBTS has it listed for $50-60 or something.

    It's worth noting that I believe the Hasbro team that designs the Crossovers are not the Transformers team, but the Star Wars team, which does explain the relatively poor quality of the figures.

    If nothing else, these make for great and affordable models of Star Wars vehicles. It's the only reason I still have my Xanadu Blood.

    I like SWTF, but I'm amazed that they made already cheap-looking toys look even cheaper (class I)...

    Quadchanging Darth is a bit of a downer, but I'm getting it anyway. Hopefully some of that junk hanging off the back can be repositioned a bit...

    i'm just confused that they are still pumping these things out as most stores near me have stopped carrying them.

    actually thinking about it this might have the record for longest running line. didn't they start in 05 the same year as cybertron? crazy I guess some one is buying them

    I was just thinking the same thing. I have never, NEVER, seen a sub-line last this long. I really would like to know who is buying them, because I've shown some of these to some hardcore SW fans, and they tend to be lukewarm to them.

    Darth Scissors?

    Anyways, these might be what makes me give up on the SWTF line. My collection consists of one of each initial release of a mold, and zero redeco/repaints. I think the little Class I figures look kinda lame, and the big Class III is a bit of a mess. Especially that Darth Vader mode. Fortunately I've already got a Death Star/Vader that is just fine.

    This line has always been about very accurate alt-modes and ho-hum kinda shitty bot-modes. They seem to have gone off the rails a bit with these since the alt-modes look kinda crummy. Even the big Star Destroyer looks bad in those pics. Hopefully it's a lot better in person.

    The rest is pretty crappy looking, but the little Scout sized Obi-Wan fighter is actually pretty good. With a bit of paint, a few of those will make rather excellent subordinate Sweeps troop builders!! :D

    IMO that's probably one of the only good molds that's come out of this line.

    I thought there were a couple of decent Clone Troopers -to- Clone vehicles (which lent themselves to strong robot modes) but aside from those few, there's not much from this line i'd take if given.

    The issue I've had with the Clone Trooper molds as a whole is yes, they look good in vehicle mode. But when you get to robot mode, that's when the issues come in. UYltra tight ratchets, odd proportions, etc.

    Great. More prequel crap. My wallet just heaved a sigh of releif. If they ever actually do get around to making any real original trilogy stuff I might renew interest, otherwise I'm out.
