Ok Ok, before we start lets get the obligatory 'Kiss Players' love jokes out the way, fnarrr fnarrr lol etc. Spoiler Buncha pervs. So yesterday I was taipsing through my loft putting/rearranging some TF's into storage when I stumbled across my old SWTF crossovers Millenium Falcon, the one that splits into Han and Chewie. For whatever reason I grabbed him, put batteries into both halves (never store with batteries kids! It won't end well) and was promptly blown away by the figure all over again. And I'm not even talking about the engineering or the quality of the figure (and it is a flawed figure), but rather how much thought and attention I feel has been put into it. From moulding details (every expected Millenium Falcon detail is present in some form, from engine vents to landing strut pistons) to the electronics (that engine light! Proper movie phrases!) to the action features (Cockpits for the Han and Chewie Minifigs, included in both modes? Spring loaded Quad laser? Transforming Bowcaster?) it's clear this toy was a labour of love for the designer. Han Solo and Chewbacca (Millenium Falcon) - Transformers Crossovers - TFW2005 http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...swtf-millenium-falcon-han-solo-chewbacca.html Thinking about it I could compare the 'love' between Takara's MP-01 and the subsequent TakTom MP-10 Convoys. (To me) it feels like the designers had a brief for MP-10 (smaller scale, Cartoon accurate, include the trailer/Roller) and dialled in his design whereas for MP-01, with no precursor to the figure they went all out to create the best TF they could possibly envision at the time. Pistons on his knees/elbows? Flip out Communicators? Moving mouthpiece (with freaky Marvel comics #76 mouth behind it)? Shin vents? Light up Matrix? Truck suspension? The list goes on and on for this guy. Thinking about it the current Masterpiece line feels 'dialled in'. Sure they do the job but the inflated price (discounting local prices) and the lack of accessories (which are store exclusives) and it feels like they're not about the love, but more about the money. Which leads me to my question. What figure do you think was made with the most love? I'll be honest, this is going to purely subjective opinions from everyone. Not everyone will agree with each others choices. So when you say which figure you think try and take some time to explain why you think that's the case. For me? Nah, I'm not going for the SWTF Millenium Falcon, nor even MP-01 Convoy, for me it's definitely... SWTF Crossovers Darth Vader/Death Star. Darth Vader (Death Star) - Transformers Crossovers - TFW2005 http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...wars-transformers-death-star-darth-vader.html WTF am I smoking I hear you ask? Well, after looking at the Millenium Falcon and MP-01 there was only one figure I felt the designers love during the creation process. Reading through my old review (from 2007!) I can see myself gushing over this fig, and revisiting it today I'm doing it again. It's clear the designers aren't the best TF designers of all time (he is the ultimate shellformer and getting him to Death Star mode can be a fiddly mess) but it's clear they are Star Wars fans. His feature set kinda tells it all. -Death Star Laser lights, with different phrases depending on how long you press the activation button? -Movie phrases with a really good sound alike? (So good it might even be James Earl Jones?) -When you insert his Lightsaber it lights up with Lightsaber noise? Then plays the deactivation sound when you remove it? -Lightsaber clash sounds off a wrist button? -But with the blaster instead that button makes blaster sounds? -4 Minifigures and Tie Fighters? -Evil cape? Plus loads more I'm sure I'm missing. Seriously WTF? HE'S EVEN GOT WAIST ARTICULATION AND ANKLE TILTS! Vader/Death Star is the very idea of that nameless toy Designer going above and beyond for us, the consumer. I love this fig so much I even went back to my old review and fix the picture links so you can all see him again. That's how much I love this guy. So sound off on who you think deserves recognition!
