    Star Wars Transformers Crossovers Darth Vader to Star Destroyer Review - YouTube

    I can't say this is bad because it's not fair to judge it by Transformers standards. I can't say it's good because it SHOULD measure well by Transformers standards.

    Star Wars Collectors may find something cool here.

    Kids will probably enjoy this.

    Transformers fans probably should at least think twice before getting this.

    The head of Darth Vador's Transformation is a really cool gimmick.
    BTW, you forget to equip Vador with his bunny hears:

    I was watchin that...Pretty decent review btw, and the whole time, Im kinda laughin...sayin "stooo-pid"...Then you did that Vader gimmick, and I was pretty damn impressed. THAT is one hell of a neat way to do the character change. Not at ALL what I pictured. Everything else was less than good at best. Then that Vader thing...WOW.. Is there a way to attach the panels with black on them to extend the cape somehow? so they went at the bottom and fanned out wide bottom to top? That would looks cool as hell..


    If this were clearanced at say...$20..I might have a hard time passing on it, just on how cool Vader was alone with that Saber.

    The only way the shield parts can attach is at the top of the kibble pack in robot mode. This looks horrible, so I do not do it. You may be able to do some kind of modification to allow for a better cape, but out of the box, nope. It's certainly a better idea than the "bunny ears."


    One last thing. In the review I mentioned that you can have him as Darth Vader and then turn him into a ship and have the Vader sound effects... Nope, I was wrong. I hadn't tried it before the review, I just assumed it would work. Vader's helmet is too big to allow the kibble pack to wrap around and make the ship modes.

    It would have been nice if he'd had a light up hand for the saber - and if he didn't then a rotator for the upper arm to make it black in Vader mode,

    If I can find one under £39.99 I'll buy it though.

    It can have sword fights with MP Grimlock ( I might lend the sword to MP Hotrodimus too)

    One last update, something that is very easy to miss:

    The figure, out of the box, is on demo mode for its electronics. Under the Republic Cruiser's bridge, where the engine block flips out, there is a switch. Switch it to "I" and you'll unlock all of the ship's sounds, more voice clips, and a transformation sound when you change between mech modes.

    The Imperial sounds are activated like normal and the Republic sounds are activated by the missile launcher buttons.
