Star Wars Transformers is a Hasbro toy line started in 2006. The line features robot versions of various characters from the Star Wars franchise that transform into vehicles from the same series.

The toy characters' factions include bounty hunters, the Galactic Empire, the Galactic Republic, the Rebel Alliance, and the Separatists. According to Hasbro, the vehicles from Shadows of the Empire are not used because the toy line targets collectors who are mostly familiar with the film series and the Clone Wars animated series.[1]

Critical reaction[edit]

Merging both franchise's toy lines was "a natural fit".[2] In 2007, Toyfare magazine called the Han Solo and Chewbacca figures — which combine to create the Millennium Falcon — the 23rd top toy released in the previous 10 years.[3] In 2006, the toy was voted the #9 toy of the year by FamilyFun Magazine.[4]
