    Neat.

    Sadly, I never had a SWTF that wasn't a QC mess, so I'll probably not pick this up. :/

    Whoa a Takara led SWTF, NOT the former Galoob Action Fleet crew that designed the SWTF's for Hasbro?

    COUNT.

    ME.

    IN!

    Blows away the original SWTF Vader TIE from 11-12 years ago!

    Is it wrong that my first thought was, "that's not how you access the cockpit of a TIE"?

    These add-on figures should have Dianaught articulation.

    This is really exciting news! Some of my favorite Transformers in my teen years were those POS TFxST crossover toys, it will be so cool to see new figures with updating engineering.

    Now awaiting Marvel VS Transformers crossover revival.

    I don't think it is. Most toys just do it that way because it's way easier to access the figure inside. But I'm pretty sure they're top-access, like a tank. The circular detail on the top is the entry hatch.

    Looking at the price, I suspect this will be bigger than the old Hasbro SWTF's, voyager size actually.

    Hell that TIE mode already looks substantially chunkier(and more accurate) than the old Hasbro one. The robot mode here is far more appealing too. Eager to see Takara take on the X-Wing.

    I just wish the Transformer was actually Megatron.

    I never got into the old Star Wars/Transformers, because they only used "transformers" in the generic sense, instead of making it a true crossover.

    The design/engineering looks great... but Vader gets into a giant robot that has a big robot version of his head? The old SW/TFs were the same, and it's just weird to me. I know it's just a toy, but I feel like they are missing out on a cooler concept.

    MPM3 reissue? Wasn\'t this guy still released/ still for sale???

    Not a Star Wars fan, but I might bite for the novelty of it. Really like the idea of franchise crossover TFs and would like to see more

    If Vader\'s cockpit ends up in the chest I\'ll keep an eye on it.  I hope they make the effort to make this crossover less awful.
    I guess nitro makes some sense without the full movie line, headmaster compatible and all that.  Couldn\'t track down one before so a version with better paints is welcome.  Bee feels more like a just because.

    I'm interested, this looks pretty cool. Much better than the previous ones.

    THIS THIS THIS.

    Hopefully, these will have more detail, better engineering, have figures that are the same size as TR and Diaclone AND have an alternate "Transformer" character repaint/remold later on (so at least two of each mold).

    If they can do that, and if they can make mechs that homage their pilots, rather than look like a robot cozplaying as a SW character, then I'm in.

    Maybe they could make Hot Rod turn into the Landspeeder.

    I want to like this but having the robots be the Star Wars characters was really part of the problem with the last attempt. They shouldn't be established Autobots and Decepticons either. Somebody should try this with some completely new mecha, even if they're still _piloted_ by the Star Wars characters.

    So that's what that Tie Fighter is.

    It was on display at the All Japan Model and Hobby Show last weekend. It was referred to only as the first figure in a new Star Wars series. Now that I know it's a TF, I can spot Vader's helmet underneath the TIE Fighter.

    The next one in the series is the Millennium Falcon.

    Wonder what the scale is and if they'll make a series of generic starfighters like X-Wings and ARC-170s so we can army-build.

    Ha. Neat. Huge improvements from the old one.

    That being said I wish it was a transformer character as the bot mode.
