I like the Fighter Pods figures (I've always been into dorky figures like that), but the ridiculous prices has kept me from collecting them. However, if I found that many figures for $30 it just might be enough to suck me in.
I'm really late to chime in here, but Vader's TIE is different from the GH release. If I remember correctly from Hasbro's images, they redesigned the body so that it can spin in your hand. Otherwise, I believe it is basically the same size and a similar sculpt.
