Again, another prediction..

A bloated 'human' mode, with as much tech-gear that looks right for each figure. So, think 'Luke with pilot gear'... The human form will have a metric ****-load of kibble on his back, where the bulk of the vehicle form will stow.

The human pieces will fold in on themselves, with the vehicle kibble folding over the 'human' core body.

So, I expect some very bad looking toys, in both modes. Just based on the way the same theme continues to be done.

It's a shame we can't have seperate human pilots, and just have the vehicles transform. That way, when a TIE fighter transformed, it could look like a stormtrooper, or one of the robot stormtroopers(what were they called, Dark Troopers or something?)

It's Optimus Prime as the millenium falcon, with Han Solo as the cockpit.

This guy is an awsome artist...

Cool link mate, Optimus looks pretty good as the Falcon. I'd also like to see him as the Tantive IV, aka the rebel blockade runner.

Are we sure that the listing means the character will be turning into the vehicle? It could also mean they're planning on releasing an action figure AND a transforming vehicle, couldn't it?

Sadly, the article was pretty clear on what these were. The 'licensed character' turns into the 'licensed vehicle'.

It sounds cool but i'd still prefer having classic G1 characters turning into star wars vessels....
I see one huge obstacle to this idea. His name: George Lucas.

Aww man, this sounds like Animorphs all over again... Did you learn nothing Hasbro!? Vehicles that turn into new TFs, sure, sounds cool. Vehicles that turn into Star Wars characters? No good son. That means we'll end up with things like General Grievous with huge wheelbike halves hanging off his shoulders and the like.

Um... sorry, but no it isn't. Not if you mean the one on Rebelscum.com that Nevermore posted the URL for. It just says Luke Skywalker/X-Wing Fighter etc. Nowhere does it say explicitly that the characters themselves will turn into the vehicles.

You're probably right, I'm just hoping you're not. And I'll carry on hoping until given indesputable proof...

...and when given that proof I'll close my eyes, stick my fingers in my ears and go "La, la, la, la!" at the top of my voice.
