SWTF are really hit or miss IMO... Mostly miss. The little ones look neat, but to me, this one looks a bit messy.

My concerns with this one are:
  • the Jedi Cruiser looks kinda ugly
  • Vader isn't very Vadery
  • Anakin is even less Anakiny, and is holding on to a big chunk of Star Destroyer
Vader almost makes a better Starscream.

I like the idea behind this better than the execution, and the price is currently keeping me away.

Re: Star Wars Transformers Darth Vader/Anakin - Star Destroyer Released

For me, these are like two great toy lines blended into one horrible toy. Star Wars = Awesome. Transformers = Awesome. Star Wars + Transformers = Garbage.

It's the Alien and Predator of the toy world.

Re: Star Wars Transformers Darth Vader/Anakin - Star Destroyer Released

I was exicted about this but once I seen it I was pretty disappointed.

Needless to say it went from a want to I'll only concider it if it's for $20 or less.

I haven't seen this one at my local Wally yet... so you guys are saying it looks crap even in package?
Does anyone know what the batteries do? Flashing lights? Does Vader talk? Star Wars theme song?

Re: Star Wars Transformers Darth Vader/Anakin - Star Destroyer Released

Someone posted nice pics on TFW2005, I think he looks alright despite the back kibble (especially in Vader mode).

It doesn't look like crap. It just doesn't look as awesome as the Death Star Vader. The Vader figure is imposing...but in a way that (to me) is more Starscream than Vader.

It does speak. Vader had several full sentence lines. I don't know if transforming it to Anakin has it change voices.

And I disagree that all SWTF are garbage. Some are quite good, especially considering that the vehicles have to take precedence over the figures. That you can get Darth Vader to transform at all is pretty nifty; that you can turn him into a Tie Fighter or the Death Star is kinda magic.

This one, though, has a few things that concern me that I listed. It may be a great toy, but I'm just not willing to bet $50 on that yet. I really want to see what the Star Destroyer looks like.
