Moroff (2016)

What would a Star Wars toy line be without a selection of weird aliens? While Rogue One didn't have a signature scene like the original Star Wars' cantina, Jabba's palace or Maz's castle, the rebel forces and Saw Guerrera's crew had their share of otherworldly creatures.

How crazy was the Star Wars Transformers concept? Maybe not a crazy as the Star Wars Customs series featuring SW characters on themed choppers. If you're a collector of oddities, you can't go wrong with mash-ups like this. The best Transformers toys find a balance between robot and alternate modes. Most fans don't want too …
