I saw both the regular painted and vintage finish Vader this past weekend at a toy show and was quite underwhelmed by the differences between the two.  I thought the regular version looked great, but the vintage finish one was so similar I had to look close to distinguish them.  Stupid, if you ask me.

Basically Hasbro is putting these out in regular and "vintage" finish to get twice the amount of money out of us for the same piece of junk.

Did everyone see our photos of the second wave, Bossk and Sandtrooper, decked out in their fancy "Vintage" finishes?  No?  Then clicky the thumbnail below and get looking!



And while you're in the Titanium mood be sure to check out today's "regular" Sandtrooper pics too!

The sandtrooper suddenly looks more appealing by our early shot of him...  Part of me wishes they were cheaper for customizing fodder. ;)  The Fett head and rifle are nice but at $15 that's pushing my boundaries of what I'm willing to spend to just get bits and pieces to duplicate.

Bossk and IG-88 are my certain buys though...  WHy Bossk you ask?

Because Trandoshans gets all da ladies...  Jockin' the Wookiee's and slappin' the ho's.  That's livin' Trandoshan style.

Has no one else found the second wave yet? I found them on Saturday, only picked up the Santrooper which is pretty nice. It's great that one can take him off his display base and that he can still stand on his own.

I think that's a case of bad, bad, figure posing. 

He looks much better if you put him in the pose he was supposed to be in...

His mouth is a little weird, don't you think?

Yeah, but I think that is because we are so used to see him with his mouth open.  Pretty much every other Bossk they have ever made (Unleashed, Kubrick, Hasbro figures, etc) shows off some teeth.

I think the mouth just looks strange without the teeth.  Reminds me of the vintage Bossk head...

I just grabbed the first wave at Target... on clearance for $10.49. I'm wondering if they're incredibly smart and clearing these out of the way before the second wave hits or if they're dropping the line.

Wow, clearance already. I might pick up the Vader if he goes low enough.
