    Star Wars Vs. Transformers.

    Or other wise known as... "Oh No... Phil is at it again!"

    As you all may or may not be aware... my sci-fi passion begins with Transformers (Then Star Trek... Then Star wars).

    Also what you are all probably aware of is the Star Wars/Transformers action figures that are out... yes they are both official Star Wars toys and Official Transformers toys. Of that List I have all but three of the figures. I have the Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Anikin Skywalker, Obi-wan, Boba Fett, Darth Maul, The Han Solo and Chwie two pack, and grevious. The three that I need are jango Fett, Clone Trooper, and Emporer. I have sceen them (today in fact) but lacked the funds to pick them up (sad day).

    Something eles of interest. Have you all seen the Attacktix toys that came out last year. It is another miniatures like game (geared more for smaller kids). The game works slightly like hero clicks. Well, a long awaited continuation of the Star Wars Attacktix just hit wal-mart. the INtergalactic showdown set. Darth Vader vs. Optimus Prime, Luke Skywalker vs. Megatron, and the AT-RT vs Omega Sentinal! The Transformers have now hit starwars... again. The Transformers are going to be (for the most part)separate from the Star Wars line... but fully intergchangable.

    You all know aobut the Star Wars Titanium series (small Die-cast ships), and you may or may not know that they added Battlestar Gallactica in there too.... Well Transformers cant leave well enough alone... They are going to have there own list of figuers too.

    The crazy updates will contiune
    Phil

    do they have an episode 2 clonetrooper attacktix?

    And have you heard about the Transformers revoltech figures yet? They won't transform, but they're supposed to be super articulated 6 inch scale figures.

    I dont know much about the Star Wars Attactix. As far as I know... the only three characters that are packaged withthe transformers that are Star Wars are Vader, Luke and the AT-RT. However I do know that the release of teh Transformers Attactix will be at the same time as the release of the next Star Wars line of Attacktix.

    I think I know what you are talking about with the 6" figures in Die-cast. If you are talking about the Titanium series with the base (like Slave 1, Darth Vader and Bosk) They will have a large list of Transformers... many from the comic book series the War Within (the story of the Transformers before they came to Earth). They will be able to transform and have the great amount of detail.

    I have some a couple of EPIII clone trooper attactix if you want them CBM. I was going to collect those but decided not to and went for Vader stuff instead.

    oh and Official Site the teaser is out in a few days.

    Did anybody see Bumble yet? Looks pretty cool. It's been removed otherwise i'd put it up.

    Is it me or is the clock on that website WAY off? It says 5d and whatever else, but it's completely missing the 1y (1 year).

    Does that for me too. I bet it will be right after the 4th. I think they were countind days, not years, so it should be 370 days, but its only counting down 5.

    I thought they were counting down to the teaser trailer?

    I'm a big Transformers fan myself. I have a few of the SW/Transformers figures but just can't afford them all or have the room. I have Maul, Obi, and Vader.

    I have a storage unit filled with toys and about half are vintage Transformers.

    Thinking of all this just makes me want to go to my storage unit and drag them all out.

    I believe for the most part my collection is in good condition all except Swoop which my brother broke his head off. A mint condition Swoop goes for about $110, mine probably a lot less, not that I would ever sell them anyway. Poop Swoop.

    And where exactly is the trailer? Is it suppose to just start? All they've got up now is the previous image with no countdown.

    EDIT: Nevermind. The countdown is playing again, but there's still no trailer.

    I watched the trailer last night. It is a great teaser trailer. Just remember the Mars rovers when you watch it.

    I just finished watching the trailer.

    Gulp!

    Very well done!

    I can already tell that continuity is out the window... but they do have to re-start the story... and it makes little sense to start the film in the year 1984.

    Here is a question for all... who do you think the bot was on the trailer.
    HMMMMMMM

    I cant wait... can it be 7-4-07 like... RIGHT NOW!

    The reason I posted the previous lists... was to kinda show that I am concerned with who is doing the movie. The only common ground I see with most of them is Zorro! What will save the film is if the three writers did a lot of work on the research of the characters and previous stories. I like Michael Bay. A very good director and I like the movies that I listed... I just hope that his work on Peral Harbor and Armegedon will have preped him for the task... and if he isn't I hope that Speilberg kicks his butt on a regular basis.

    Speilberg will save the film... that is if he did some research on the Transformers world.

    With what little they have put out... so far so good

    Whoa, those are some stinking writers! As for the music guy, darn it, lets hope he doesn't mess up the title song and lets hope they dont get some crappy teen/college group do do the theme.

    I agree. If the second or two of music that we heard is consistant through the movie... then it should be good.
