I feel for the completists.  You know every show (comic-con, toy fair, etc.) is going to have an "exclusive" coin that is only available at the show.

And the sell price will be $14.99.

I do not know why Hasbro does not call thing my their proper names.  It is not a coin album but rather a screw you kit. :P

It just occured to me that since Vader is not included in wave 1, then it's all but certain that this will be a cased out figure. :P

I'd rather the pack-in be something that corresponds to the figure itself...like an accessory or something useful. A coin is just one more thing that I'll never give a **** about.

Well, I'll take the coins off your hands if you don't want them.  ;)

I agree with Lando.  Hasbro can shove the coins up their butts.

I actually want to take all the coins and mail them to Hasbro with a nice note, something like this:

"Dear Hasbro, As I am aware of your need to keep costs down and your policy of the 3 Rs (rehash, repaint, repack), here are some coins to further your business or to shove up your ass".

Just curious if anyone knows if this vader is truly packaged like wave 1.  What I mean by that is does it have the peg holder and if unpackaged from the "album" could it just appear as another figure.  The reason I'm asking is that I hang all the figures on the wall with a push pin where the peg hangs.  If this figure cannot be hung that way, I have no reason to get it.  From the pictures it looks like the packaging is a little different (although in the same style), just not exactly the same.  Anyone have it yet to verify?  thanks in advance

Unfortunately, this isn't to be released until January, so you're a little ahead of the game.  EE's description is fairly vague, but the pic makes it appear that the Vader card is removeable from the album.  It's just a guess though.

A little birdie tells me these may be at Target before the end of the month... don't forget to check those DPCIs (087-06-0886).

Until they get here, here are a few high-res images to tide you over.

Apparantly K-Mart's putting the tags out for the Vader w/coin folder too...  Hmmm.

The Vader card is removable from the the album.  I've had mine for a week or so now.
