Indeed, "Star Wars Powered By Transformers" appears to be the staggeringly unweildy line name for the new iteration of Star Wars Transformers.

The Toys R Us page notes a retail release of April 2nd and a slightly reduced price of 4,999 Yen, or about $45. Keep reading to see the photos!
TFSource have informed us the new line from Takara that features famous Star Wars vehicles that transform to Star Wars figures has just been announced!
The first figure is Tie Advanced X1. This is a prototype version of the tie fighter that transforms into Darth Vader! Includes 5 mini Stormtrooper figures, and presumed to include a mini Darth Vader figure as well as a Lightsaber.

In addition to the Legends and Encore God Fire Convoy reported earlier today, March 2018 is seeing a new release of Darth Vader's TIE Advanced, and the first run will include a squad of Storm Trooper mini figures in addition to the Darth Vader pilot figure. For those who remember these as being less than amazingly designed, you might want to keep reading, because it seems not to be a simple reissue...
