After Brent mentioned the Japanese exclusive Blackhole Stormtrooper mini-bust, I hunted a bit to find that there is also the silver Vader statue appears to be a Japanese exclusive as well.

I'm not as crazy about this statue in it's chrome form, but the light-up lightsaber is pretty cool.



...edit... After fighting with the translation a bit, it seems that there will be 1000 pieces available from Blister.jp, but a total of 2500 pieces available worldwide.  So I imagine the other 1500 should be made available to North America at a later time.

"The number of day sales": 1000
"The worldwide number of limitations": 2500

Here you go Jesse, Slave1 has some nice pictures of this bad boy.  8)

I was very close in pre-ordering it but i convinced myself not to. I hope they release one in the animated line though.  ;D

Got my order in!   8)

Since I never put down the money for GG's orginal version of this statue, I'm definitely jumping in this time.  I always figured that since I had ordered the Sideshow Vader statue, I didn't need the GG version.  But this chrome version is unique enough that I will gladly order it!  ;)

Not for me, $200 extra for chrome just isn't worth it to me.   :o

The Rancor statue won't be released until November, so you'll be hard pressed to find someone to get a pic of the two Rancors side by side.  EE states the statue is 16" tall, if that helps.

Sweet mother of God is the Rancor HUGE!  I couldn't believe it until I actually saw it in person today.  The thing is gargantuan!  And it looks awesome, too.

Exclusive 14" Chrome Vader at SWS.com

Vader's been delayed until July 10th, so there's a little more time to save up for this bad boy...

One more piece of info:  Vader is available for 10% off to Hyperspace members at SWS.com (so is the Luke & Tauntaun statue).

Man, that Royal Guard is dope.  Hadn't seen that yet.  I still want to get the 1st version of Vader instead of this chrome one.

Wow, that's a beauty.  It looks like they did a great job on the weathering and the Wookiee braids. 8)
