Wait though...is that the regular version?

I hope so!

Me too!
I think this is the regular Vader w/ Anakin underneath.
So, if this is the regular, and we also get the Vader/Luke, I`m gonna need
3 Vaders. 1 with Helmet on, 1 showing Anakin and the Vader/Luke.
Oh man!

But remember, one could be the Japan Chase and the other could be the HK Chase.  Hmmm...

Bite your tongue mr tony!
Anywho, I think the pics we are seeing are all from one source (well, the pics
may not be, but the figures are). I don`t think we`d be seeing the JP/HK differences
just yet. Of course, I don`t get paid to think...

Well you'd have two of the four immediately if you get a box, right?  You get four Vaders, pop one helmet and you're 2/3 of the way there.  It's going to be harder for people to pick up singles though, since a lot of collectors will be displaying that way too.

Holo Leia, BIN of 27 dollars, he says it is an opener, but doesn`t look too bad.
This is Rupin, great seller!

Dammit, Brent!  >:(

Nice score, jerk.  :'(

As for the Vader, I'm assuming the RH/Anakin one is going to be the regular version, and that the Luke reveal will be the chase.  And yeah, if that's indeed the case, I'm going to need a couple different regular Vaders to display both ways as well.  Very cool ideas though, as expected from Medicom.

That carded Vader better be identical to one of the loose ones, that's all I've got to say!  :-X

It comes with David Prowse head and JEJ voice, but you don`t know this until you
pop him off the card. Very sneaky, those Medicom people... ;D

More pics of the carded Vader are up at www.slave1.jp
Nice looking for sure!
I love the choking hazzard warning on there, so fitting with Vader  ;D

Hmm, maybe they are same pics, but I swear they were different before...

OMFG! A Han Stormtrooper chase.  8)  So that looks like were going to see a Luke Stormtrooper down the road.  8)

The pic with the Emperor and his cane with lightening bolts seals that.  8)

Great pictures Simon, I can't wait.

Man, Medicom really has a hard on for Han.  What's this, his 4th figure already?

Still getting it, though.

Not just customs. Out and out fakes. Here is a close up of the regular Stormie.

Are the hands different? I don't think so?

So i guess thats it, 2 chase figures. This could be problematic, people may be making fakes and selling them off as real. Anyway, it's pretty cool, i guess Luke shouldnt be far along. I am actually surprised they did't do Luke first.

Cool!  Thanks for the head's up and pic, Simon.  Have you been able to verify that the RH/Anakin Vader is just the regular Vader?  I assume that's the case, right?

So it appears that Luke as Darth Vader to be the 1:48 and the Han Solo Stormtrooper to be the 3:48?  This makes sense can anyone confirm this?
