Uniting two amazing franchises in one ultra-cool toy line, Takara Tomy launched its original Star Wars Transformers crossover novelties with Hasbro back in 2005.

The commercial alliance showcased popular Star Wars vehicles transforming into mega robots based on iconic Star Wars characters like Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jango Fett, Mace Windu, and Darth Maul.

This amazing mashup roster was rebranded as Transformers: Crossovers in 2008, which included various notable Marvel Comics superheroes. After the Marvel angle had been disbanded in 2011, Star Wars Transformers made a triumphant return. The entire line was canceled in 2012 but has now been resurrected by Japan's Takara Tomy with the initial release of the Millennium Falcon Transformer.

This perfect marriage of Transformers and Star Wars allows the "Fastest Hunk of Junk in the Galaxy" to separate and transform into a pair of Han Solo and Chewbacca mega-robots. Robo-Han can equip himself with his trusty blaster pistol, with Robo-Chewbacca packing his trademark bowcaster.

The set also includes two mini figures of Han and Chewie. It's available now for pre-order as an import HERE for $134.99.
