    I'd love it if we got a Naboo starfighter.

    The bot mode is just as imposing as it should be.

    Apparently this new sub-line of transforming Star Wars figures will be handled by Takara Tomy, and not Hasbro, so there'll be better sculpts, tech details, gimmicks (the little bonus Vader and Stormtrooper minifigs), and articulation/proportions on the bot modes. My guess is that ever since Disney bought the rights to Star Wars, they've been wanting to push harder and harder into the Asian and Japanese markets. And those markets love giant robots, so why not merge the two?

    I like the fact that there\'s no partforming and no shellformer to this new Darth Vader transformer, unlike the old one.

    I Preordered from Amiami along with Topspin, Twintwist & movie best Jetfire. Now I have to start saving up for March.

    Deluxe limbs = Vader's TIE Fighter, TIE Fighter, TIE Bomber, TIE Interceptor, TIE Striker, TIE Silencer or TIE Defender.
    Voyager body = Imperial Shuttle, Sith Infiltrator or ???
    Combined form = Vader? Maul? Sidious? Jar Jar?

    I was never convinced this was a good idea 10 + years ago...but, I don't know that Disney ever met someone else's idea that they didn't try to make a buck on.

    So if Star Wars is Transformers would that mean Star Trek is GoBots?

    Careful what you say. Trekkies are more prevalent than you realize, and they will take every opportunity to try and reassert their dominance over cult-classic space sagas.

    In all seriousness, Star Trek is better straight Science Fiction (which is now a dubious claim, now that there are so many beings running around the Star Trek galaxy with deity-levels of power, like the Q) compared to the Science Fantasy/Space Opera of Star Wars.

    I wouldn't mind them doing some of the newer characters instead of doing the same old original trilogy characters (which it no doubt will be). However, a second better crack at boba fett and slave one would be appreciated.

    Id like to see poe's xwing, hera and kanan from rebels as the new han/chewie combined vehicle, and jyn from rogue one. Maybe even a junker speeder version of rae.

    I always liked the crossovers. I ended up with quite a few and I still display my darth maul (best figure of the line imo) deathstar vader, tie bomber pilot, and commander cody.

    I wonder how Vader will look like all painted up, still just the grey prototype for bot mode.

    As opposed to any number of Jedi and Jedi like creatures running around who get their powers from either midiclorians or the general force gods depending on your view?
    I'll take Q over that any day and as Q is the end all of evolution, makes a bit more sense IMO
