    Magnaguard's not bad. Still too pricy for my tastes though. He'd make a great generic soldier bot.

    Definitely going to pick up a Magnaguard. Looks great.

    Battle Droid is old though. I have him sitting on my desk.

    Magnaguard kind of reminds me of Cosmos. I'll get it.

    That Battle Droid is in the current packaging, but I'm eagerly awaiting that Magna Guard's release.

    Magnaguard kind of works since it would be a vehicle turning into a robot instead of vehicle changing into a mech.

    Plus it's got the advantage of you could almost work it into your regular Transformers collections since the Magnaguard and the fighter aren't so iconic that they stand out as Star Wars mechs like a figure with Chewbacca's or Darth Vader's head would.

    Magnaguard looks like the best SWTF so far. Actually he's the only SWTF so far to tickle my want glands.

    I just want a regular Magnaguard figure. Not Clone Wars cartoon style. Not crossover. Just a regular one to go with my Grievous figure.

    Didn't Hasbro say they wouldn't make SWTF for droids? If so why don't they make an R2-D2, he is gonna rule.

    Meh. Doesn't look too half bad. However... Star Wars Crossovers aren't exactly well known for being.. good.

    That Magnaguard might actually be the first Star wars transformer I'd buy. That doesn't look half bad.

    Not fantastic, but the design is decent. And for a Star Wars Crossover TF, this is awesome. IMO, previous Star Wars Crossover TFs have not been designed well and have crappy looks, but this one was well made. Another one I think is great is General Grievous, which is definitely better than this one.

    Still, I give it a bay for nice design. :bay
