Oh. Great.

Now I really want one, though I have a snowball's chance in hell of owning one.

Nice!  A little extra for the money.  Now everyone will want their lightsaber toting figures to have a light up version.  A good reason to reissue Jedi Luke :)

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but after a bit more exploration into that saber, it was revealed that the light-up saber there is just a custom piece that was created by one of the regular posters over at chinese-starwars.com.

I think something was apparently lost in translation when Jesse learned about it.

Oh it's no big deal really.  They would just jack the price up another $20 for light up sabers anyway.

I thought something was out of place in that image.  If you look closely, you can see the face sculpt has been "tweaked."  (It's pudgier).

Can't say that it's better.

I received an e-mail from SS this morning that they are now processing the orders for the SDCC Vader figure  ;D.

Actually starting July 3rd they will begin processing the orders.  I got the same email for 12" Vader and the 501st Trooper.

Do you think they will mail out the orders for Vader/Anakin before the convention or wait until afterwards?  I am assuming afterwards but it would be sweet to have it before then.

I've gotta think it would be afterwards.  It would suck for those of us who are going to have people who aren't attending have the satisfaction of owning it first.  Kinda takes some of the luster off of it ya know?
