Star Wars Transformers - Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi




This is a Star Wars + Transformers cross over toys series produced by Hasbro maker of toys from both franchise (Star Wars and Transformers series) and today we will look at these 2 guys, Anakin and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Not much I can say about this "cross over" thingy - for me personally I only bought this out of curiosity and since the price is just SGD 5.00 (about USD 4.00 / EUR 3.00 / 380 Yen) so what the heck, it's cheap, just grabbed them for fun... simple as that.


The packaging;






First we will look at Anakin as Jedi Starfighter in vehicle mode - out of the box you will get these;




And of coz this manual;



Let's have a look at the Jedi Starfighter;



I guess at this price point the detailing and painting job is simply brilliant, no complain what so ever.


Features of this Jedi Starfighter are this expandable wings or what ever aerodynamic stuff that is - on the side;



And there is some sort of landing stand that you can use underneath the body;



It will be something like this;




And this is now in robot mode, the transformation process is quite easy especially if you just watch those videos from YouTube;



Articulation is not great but it's there, you can move the arms, elbows, hips and the knees decently;




A little bit of action pose with the light saber;





And now we will look at this Jedi Starfighter of Obi-Wan Kenobi;




Same as the Anakin, this one also have that landing stand underneath the body;




And now the robot mode as "Obi-Wan Kenobi";






Again, articulation is not great but this one is slightly better than Anakin;




A little bit of action pose with the light saber;




I can now "replicate" that "Duel on Mustafar" between Anakin and Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars - Episode 3.


















LOL... nothing serious... just for the fun of it....


Overall, this is quite a decent cheap toys from Hasbro, well OK, I bought it at clearance price but surely a price I am willing to pay for such items. The detailing and painting job on the vehicle mode is very good, the robot mode is robotic with a little bit of humanoid touch, nothing bad, articulation is not great but quite decent for this level, the transformation process is quite easy. I think they both are decently fun toys. As long as you don't expect miracle, I'm sure you will be OK with these toys. Just some additional notes, between the 2 of them - as robot figure - I prefer the Obi-Wan Kenobi over Anakin - maybe it's just my personal taste.

  2. being a bargain, these figures look much more than decent actually !!!... the paint job and finishing is neat, almost on the same level of those by Takara... not my line (Star Wars) but if that were the case, i wouldn’t mind to grab a few of them, specially considering that the price is tempting... =)
