now we know for sure we'll never get the droids we're looking for.
So...any news of when more SWTFs will be coming? I know a lot of people don't seem to like them, but I think they've been getting better as the line progresses.
Hey, I understand where they're coming from.
It definitely makes more sense for Luke to use the Force to turn into an X-wing than for R2-D2 to transform into something.
I'm no SW geek so I had to fact-check it. I thought General Grevious was a droid and he has a SWTF toy. But he was a cyborg, kind of like Vader but with even more augmentation.
Take that, SW nerds.
Bah, Who needs transforming robots?
SWTF..."Quite possibly the worst idea since Greedo shooting first"
A simple "no" would have worked rather than admitting their own geekness!
They are making toys based on a mix of Transformers and Star Wars. Their geekness was admitted long ago, just as all of ours was when we signed on to this forum about collecting toys.
Well, DUH. When was the last time you saw a droid with asthma?
(Yes, I know that it was Mace Windu in the clone wars cartoon who crushed his lungs with the force, but clone wars was so awesome I can't accept the two in the same continuity)
what a lost oppritonity.....i cant spell for shit
Yes, but to explain WHY they don't want to make droids as SWTF rather than just say "no" ... and the actual explanation given ... I mean wow.
I find their lack of faith in droids disturbing.
You know, now that I think about it, they didn't even do them in the UNLEASHED line.
The Emperor will not be as forgiving as I am!
There goes my hopes for an IG-88 SWTF...
Exactly. I've said it before.. The line should have been about Transformers we know turning into Star Wars vehicles... (ie. Starscream. Tie Advance). Thus R2 and 3PO would have been the logical choice.
I dunno, they could have R2-D2 transform into the Escape Pod from Episode IV. All they'd have to do is invert him from one form to the other. There wouldn't be any kibble even. And on the topic, they could make a good Droid Tank out of the normal battle droids. It wouldn't look any worse than half of the bike wheel that sticks out of Grevious' back.
C3PO would transform into a sack on Chewbaccas back
I don't think we'll ever see a regular Tie Fighter either. How could they make that transform into a Tie Fighter Pilot? It's just a ball with 2 large panels.
