    They didn't cancele Universe 2.0, they put it on hiatus, and have already confirmed that it'll be coming back latter next year. Plus, the people who work on the Star Wars Crossovers line have absolutely nothing to do with the one's who work on Universe (two completely different teams), so the two lines really have no affect on each other.

    Edit: Oh, and as for them being shelf-warmers, I can't speak for other areas, but they have been selling quite well in the stores I've been to. Though now that I think about it, everything with the name Star Wars on it sells well around here...

    That explains so much. I cringe every time I walk into a retail store and see no universe toys. Still need that stupid cyclonus.....

    You haven't been paying attention. They FLY off the pegs/shelves. That's why the line is still going after all these years. Every time a store gets a case in, a few days later they're wiped out.


    Animated is the king of all shelf warmers. That shit won't move!

    I KNEW that Hummer mold looked so much better with a chaingun! I so need that Punisher for a custom of mine. Except mine will now have THREE chainguns, since I already bought two for the Cap. America one!:lol

    Rebelscum has pictures of a Y-Wing Pilot that transforms, obviously, into a Y-Wing.

    Honestly, that Y-Wing Transformer really seems to work well! The colors work in both modes, and overall it just looks better than most of the other Crossovers.

    yet they are soooo crappy :lol  sure there are three good ones (commander cody, death star vader, and the mellenium falcon), but the rest are garbage.....ours don't sell around here.....what sucked for me is the fact my local stores were completely out of marvel crossovers except for a single dusty human torch (i bought the other dusty one there)......and randomly today some new ones are on the shelf, including the darker spiderman motorcycle and the brown and yellow wolverine jeep.....but those didn't matter, as i finally found a captain america, and i grabbed that sucker faster than you could say chimichanga :lolol  he is sooo awesome

    and punisherbot will be mine

    Depends on Location I suppose. My store can't keep either. Although lately Animated has just been sitting there, but that's mainly because they get the same ones over and over and over and never get anything new.

    I have the entire collection thus far. Looking for Kit Fisto and the Droid vehicle. The vehicle modes are cooler than the bot modes. But a Star Wars vehicle that transforms makes them novelty items which is why they sell so fast. I'm happy that I was able to grab the Grievous Bike/Bot and Emperor Palpetine Shuttle/Bot for the $14.99 retail price. They are more expensive now. And the new molds and repainted molds with different heads are also more expensive than the original retail price. I hope they make a Republic Ship and Land Speeder, and those Cloud City side by side vehicles and the list goes on.

    Gotta track down a Battle Droid still...

    Glad to see this line still has a future. But I am running out of room on top of my Star Wars books to put these.

    Can anyone tell if the V Wing Clone Pilot repaint of the V Wing Shocktrooper has the same head or is it a new mold?

    The Star Wars design team handles "Star Wars Transformers", as that item is considered to be "Star Wars" more than it is "Transformers".

    I want to say that the same team does the Marvel Transformers, but I could be wrong, I never bothered to find out because I really don't care about Marvel's Crossover line, heh.

    There is no way that the team the does the swtf does the marvel ones, There is a BIG difference in the quality of the figures.

    I do not know who does the marvel ones though.
