I think I saw the Clone Pilot at a Target in Pgh the other day - didn't realize it was new. Huh.

Galactichunter.com reported that they were out in stores at the end of March.

Why does it seem like we constantly get a butt-load of these Star Wars mish-mashes and yet it's so hard for Hasbro to do a complete Classics line?

I own a couple of these, but they're FAR from the best Transformers I've owned (and I'm a Star Wars fan too!)

Wow...something like this upsets you to the point that you're sick? Wow. You must not get out much.

If you like the line, fine. Heaven knows that you're getting a ton of the figures.

Personally, unless actual Transformers characters start appearing in these lines, I don't think they can truthfully be called "cross-overs." As it is, the only way any of these figures are related to Transformers is the fact that they change from robot into vehicle, which in my mind are no more relatable than Go-Bots or any cheap generic knock-off that you buy in Big Lots. Call me back when Iron Man turns into Ironhide, the Emperor turns into Megatron, or Anakin turns into Arcee.

In my travels today, i found the obi-wan ship at a tru north of phila(oxford valley).

Saw both today at a Meijer here in MI. Didn't realize they where new. They look ok for SW Transformers.

I saw both of these figures today here in New Zealand.

Can anyone confirm that these definitely have new head molds and not just repainted heads? From the pictures that I have seen Obi-Wan definitely seems to have a new head mold, but I am not sure about the Clone head?
MegaHavok
the new clone head was a very subtle change from what i remember

Epic fail.

Ah you mistake my disgust for disliking the crossover aspect when my comment was made simply because I think these toys are horrendously made and overpriced, I bought the falcon, commander cody and the deathstar the rest is just total bum!

Oh come on, it was just a little comedic hyperbole.

I'm really looking forward to finding the Republic gunship.... not for any special love of the SWTF, but because it'll be the first time Hasbro will have released that ship in that paint scheme and not made it a $40 figure holder or a $30 Titanium.... $7 now THATS affordable.
shibamura_prime
Woohoo! The Obi-Wan Starfighter they SHOULD'VE made first!
Omegatron
I wasn't aware I should've been looking for these already. Off to Target I go!

Edit: Is this all of the new figures in this wave, or is there something else to be looking for?
Admiral Thrawn
looks like i'll be out of money for awhile...


lets see, i need blue whale gunship, blue whale ARC-170, Obi-Wan III, Obi Wan II, Mace, Cody, Anakin, Jango, Greivous and Saesee Tiin.
Railguard
Eh, not interested, pass.
airfox
Man ... more SWTFs I need to look for. The last I could find here were the original Republic Gunship and the Saesee Tiin one.

Because almost every fan has a different definition of what a "complete Classics line" would require.

Answering my own question, the cross-sells don't indicate any other new figs- just Vader/TIE, Palpatine, and Mace Windu.

Found them today at my local Target. Shortest toy hunt ever. I don't think I've ever heard one day that something was out, then made one stop and found the item.
