Darth Vader Transformer Has Identity Crisis
Thinkgeek is selling these 11" tall Darth Vader Transformers for $50. For that price you get the main figure along with 3 mini Storm Troopers, 3 little Tie Fighters, and a mini Vader. The figure also comes with a few weapons and makes different noises depending on his mood and what kind of weapons he's holding. Sounds good right? Well there's a problem: It's completely unbelievable. The first Death Star had a diameter between 120 - 160km ( ~75 - 100 miles). That's freaking huge. So if you had a Vader that big, why even bother building a Death Star? Vader could just land on the planet and kick the shit out of any Ewoks that got in his way. Just swing the ol' lightsaber around for a day or two and everyone is dead. Plus you get to keep the planet afterward instead of vaporizing it. Win, win. That being said, I ordered two of these. One for myself and one for my daughter because I forgot her birthday. I've got my fingers crossed she doesn't want it though so I can keep one mint condition. *pew pew*
UPDATE: Two pictures added of horrible, horrible, horrible Chewbacca and Han Solo Millennium Falcon Transfomers added, thanks to the beatiful Melissa. You really have to see them to believe the awfulness.

Thanks to Joe, who has the power to destroy planets but chooses not to because he's a good guy, for the tip
