Transformers / Star Wars: Anakin Skywalker

I'm not a huge fan of the Transformers Crossover toys, but when I saw this small Star Wars toy on deep, deep clearance I had to appease my curiosity and see if these smaller Star Wars Transformers were any better than the larger toys.

I would've rather had the Y-Wing, but we'll just go w/ the Jedi Starfighter for starters.  Packaging is rather nice, small and compact, but nice.  I like the die-cut top and the curved sides of the blister card.  The back of the packaging shows the robot mode and gives a little bio.

The Jedi Starfighter looks surprisingly nice.  It's about the size of a standard Hot Wheel car.  I like small toys.  It feels like a better toy than the older, larger Crossover toys.

Transformation is rather simple, but yet the robot mode looks much better than I thought it would. Articulation is surprisingly good as well.  I believe this toy originally retailed for $7 or $8 and that seems way too much, but it was worth the $2 I paid.

For size comparison, here is Anaking along side the Transformers Prime Cyberverse Skyquake.
