Each part of a combiner is a complete toy in itself, so no, not really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (03 October 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

@  Paladin : (03 October 2019 - 01:35 PM)

can't believe Build A Figures finally came to Transformers...

Originally Galoob made Micro Machines, but Hasbro bought Galoob.

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 October 2019 - 09:49 AM)

Hasbro owns the IP, but licensed it out to WCT. Hasbro owns Tonka, but hasn't actually made a legit Tonka product in years. Basic Fun (IIRC) is taking that over next year from the existing licensee

@  Benbot : (03 October 2019 - 07:09 AM)

I thought Hasbro made Micro Machines

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 October 2019 - 10:40 AM)

Jazzwares bought Wicked Cool Toys. So I guess Jazzwares is going to be making Micro Machines :p

Only places I've seen the armored up Y-wing is in the Visual Guide by DK publishing and the latest SW Insider Mag. It makes sense really considering the back story was that they were battered old fighters during the original films. The armor matches the cockpit section and extends over the previously open tech over the entire fighter. Even the engine pods are more armored with only the back end of them uncovered. Also the Ion Gunners chair seems to have a glass pod over it and 360 degree rotation. The yellow stripes on the cockpit extend over the entire fighter and the entire engines. It's a very natural look for it to be a fresh of the lines Y-wing rather than the beat up things we see in the original trilogy.

I love those Y-wings. Supposedly they're making Titanium versions for now and Hasbro has said if they feature widely in the show they may make a 3 3/4 version. The story I saw or read is that it's not so much extra armor as simply the original design. The Rebel mechanics had to work on them so much though, they just started leaving all the extra panels off so they could get to the interior faster.

At first I was annoyed by the fact that we didn't see any many new versions of the ships from Ep IV and on, but if you think about it, it's what? 18 years from the end of ROTS to ANH? Look at the evolution of warplanes from the end of WWII to Korea or even Vietnam to the 1st Gulf War, and there's a vast change. So, it's not so strange to not see much familiar in the way of starfighters yet. Still, it will be neat to see some shiny new Y-wings and some Z-95s maybe.

On a side note, Starwars.com has a fun Article with some Easter eggs to look for in the new movie.

Ya I had figured this was their original design. By the time of the rebellion the Y-wings would probably be like an old car, breaking down constantly, always in need of work. It would make sense that they would take the extra paneling off. And I also hope we get some other ships in that might not be new in the original trilogy that might be brand new in the CW's

Yeah, I don't think it was really an homage to Starship Troopers. I think it really was supposed to sound like an Imperial Newsreel bit. But the announcer definitely sounded like the Troopers' guy.

Ya it's more just a general old style world war 2 newsreel spin. Besides theres no "Would you like to know more?" question on the bottom of the screen.
