I sooooo want to order them, but... :-\

Getting both Vader AND Stormtrooper together and still paying less than the average eBay price for one of them is just a fantastic deal, but after giving it some thought tonight, I think I'm going to pass.

This summer's "additions" are already starting to sway the way I think about my collecting.  I know that if I grab these two, it will invariably suck me in to tracking down Fett and then shelling out for more as they come out.  They are damn cool, but I guess I've just got to stay strong and let the Kubricks stuff satiate my Medicom desires.    :(

I`m with you. As much as I want these guys, I have to pass. Just can`t have
it all I guess, and the $120 will go into series 6 when it comes out.
Damn good prices though. If they had been 40-45, I`m sure i would have
bit on them....

According to Sideshow's "Behind the Show" blog, there will be "minor paint differences" between the figures they are importing and the ones originally released in Japan.  Since they are "minor", I don't imagine it will make much difference to most people.

I would imagine the packaging will have some differences as well, including a Sideshow logo of some kind and removal of the Japanese writing (which I assume the orginals had).

Hey fellas,

Alter Ego Comics has both the Vader and Stormie up for pre-order for $51.00 each  - I saved a total of $14.05 by pre-ordering through them.  Alter Ego Comics does ship to Canada.

Vader

Stormie

Looking forward to these...

Hmmm, now to decide if I want one.  Thanks, I was wondering when they'd announce it.

Wow, they did a great job on him.   8)

Anyone hoping to grab him?  I think this is one line I'll stay away from, despite the killer job Medicom has done so far.
