I dunno guys, the helmets look the same to me. I enlarged that Stormie pic & took a shot of my Luke with the helmet on to compare.



Getting a better look at the Toy Show pic, I see a flesh colored neck. That area (raised circle) on the side of the head has 2 black & 1 blue stripe that are also raised, the blue stripe is in the center. They look identical unless I am missing something. :-\

Not much help, but here's the shot bountyhunter-ck posted over at snowtroopers. Not sure of the source though, so probably shouldn't leave it up over long.



Can you zoom in on the tag?

Same pic Adam posted on page 32, the tag is too blurry when zoomed in. :-\

I see that Ningyoushi.com is taking a preorder on the Vader, $120. with a deposit of $50. According to the site, Vader is estimated to ship December end 2006.

400% Star Wars Darth Vader Kubrick (PREORDER)

I'm holding off till I see something from HLJ & RoBBy.jp which hopefully will be soon. :)

That's a bit pricey, I agree.  I'll wait on our other Japanese friends, much more reasonable are they.

i also think we should wait. 120 with shipping is more reasonable..

Oooh... can't wait for Robby or HLJ to put these up. I'll definitely be grabbing a Vader for my 400% Shelf. :)

Needless to say, but if anyone sees them at Robby/HLJ please let those of us with reduced free time lately know ASAP. ;)

I'd imagine HLJ putting the 400% Vader up for pre order shortly. They put up the 400% Willy Wonka a little while ago as an early bird (5% off). How are the shipping costs from HLJ to the US anyways?

Shipping is not too bad, I have my stuff shipped SAL but they might ship EMS depending on the size.

As for shipping, I looked at the 400% Han & Luke & EMS is $24.11 & SAL is $11.02 US.
