TakaraTomy has published a new video to their website detailing the transformation of the Star Wars Powered By Transformers
Darth Vader TIE Fighter! The figure looks good and looks to have a decently involving but not difficult transformation. We can't embed the video here, so click through for a link!
has posted new images of the Star Wars Powered By Transformers
Darth Vader's TIE Fighter figure due out this coming March! These are probably the best-quality images we've seen so far of the final, full-color product. The figure is definitely better-looking than the original version of this concept - though until someone who owns that version has this in-hand, the jury is out on how much of that tooling has been reused.

Indeed, "Star Wars Powered By Transformers" appears to be the staggeringly unweildy line name for the new iteration of Star Wars Transformers. Toys R Us Japan has added a product page for Darth Vader TIE Advanced featuring out first color images of the toy. Naturally it sticks to mainly grey, favoring the vehicle colors, but the Vader chest piece and helmet do add a bit of the needed black. The Toys R Us page notes a retail release of April 2nd and a slightly reduced price of 4,999 Yen, or about $45. Keep reading to see the photos!
TFSource have informed us the new line from Takara that features famous Star Wars vehicles that transform to Star Wars figures has just been announced!
The first figure is Tie Advanced X1. This is a prototype version of the tie fighter that transforms into Darth Vader! Includes 5 mini Stormtrooper figures, and presumed to include a mini Darth Vader figure as well as a Lightsaber.
Remember that time Hasbro made transforming Star Wars vehicles based on major movie characters? It looks like TakaraTomy may be interested in picking up that project now. In addition to the Legends and Encore God Fire Convoy reported earlier today, March 2018 is seeing a new release of Darth Vader's TIE Advanced, and the first run will include a squad of Storm Trooper mini figures in addition to the Darth Vader pilot figure. For those who remember these as being less than amazingly designed, you might want to keep reading, because it seems not to be a simple reissue...
