    Will you be collecting Star Wars Transformers?

    For the past decade, both Star Wars and Transformers have grown into strong brands for Hasbro, and fans of each have occasionally contemplated a potential cross-over line - if not particularly seriously. However, after years of fans bandying about ideas of Star Destroyers transforming into robots a la Mega-Maid from "Spaceballs", Hasbro has picked up this unusual idea and moved it into reality with the unveiling of the first 4 Star Wars Transformers at BotCon, the official Transformers convention which took place this last weekend in Texas. Hasbro announced that 11 Star Wars Transformers are planned for '06, including Vader's TIE Fighter, Luke's X-wing, Grievous' Wheel Bike, Obi-Wan's Ep 3 Jedi Starfighter which were all on display, as was the packaging for Vader's TIE.

    You can see images of the displayed sets in this gallery:

    Reaction so far has been mixed from fans of both lines. So the question of the day is, will Star Wars fans collect this unusual blending of the Star Wars and Transformers brands?

    I won't buy them. I don't really know what to think of them. But, they are definatly "different."
    Yo momma. That's right, I said "yo momma".

    I put probably. I'll wait until I see 'em in person to make the final decision. Form the few pics I've seen they look like decent transformers though. We'll see.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    I said absolutely no, as they look like something beyond crap, but the way these things go, I often change my mind when I find them.

    Nope. They suck.

    ughh.... didn't they mean GoBots? These are sad....
    I hope that this isn't a sign of just how far the franchise is going to be milked! The new Sideshow 12"s and there are still so many figures to make, and if they can get the Unleashed back on track... this is just unnecessary.

    I'm intrigued by them. They are certainly unique to the Star Wars line and while I may not collect every transformer, I will certainly have a few to own, open and display.

    I'm becoming very choosy lately about what I buy and I can honestly say that I am buying a more variety of lines and toys as opposed to buying just everything of a certain line. I like that freedom more and while I don't like Transformers normally, this is unique and will definitely add a few to my collection.

    Absolutely won't collect

    I've never been interested in transforming vehicles/robots so I will definitely be passing on Star Wars Transformers.

    I'm not surprised that by far the largest category chosen in this poll is "definitely not." These things look like they are cheap knockoffs of regular Transformers crafted in a chinese opium den. I think Hasbro should have focused their efforts on something worthwhile instead of this lame diversion.
