Post pics, man!
I would, but I don't have a camera. :-\

All I can say is that SS really did good with details on Darth Vader. The only problem I have with vader so far is that he can't kneel down, but otherwise he's great.

Edit: he can keel down you just have to remove the belt holding the plate between his legs.

There are some minor inaccuracies with this guy, but the piece as a whole is by far the best thing from SSC yet. Right up there with Old Ben.

Incredible!  Hope my waitlist order goes through!
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

I hope you're able to convert, too. I knew that Vader, if he was done half-right, would have an enormous presence on the shelf... I had no idea he'd be this good, though. My biggest complaint about him is that he's too tall. SSC Vader is 3 inches taller than SSC Bespin Luke - I don't know if that's because Bespin Luke is too small or Vader is too tall, or both, but they can't stand too close without Luke (and several others) looking ridiculous.

Impressive... most impressive.   I do hope that I convert to an order as well.  However, I'm really not holding out much hope as I was really late to the pre-order game.

I wish I'd gotten a SS Stormtrooper to go with Darth Vader since all I have to display him with right now is Jedi Luke.  :(

Yeah, and Luke's "oh ****" expression looks even worse standing next to Vader. I've got a stormy, but I'm really wishing I had a second to flank him. That, and I don't like the look of Piett, so I'm really regretting SSC didn't do a better job with that.

Maybe Governor Tarkin will make a good companion? Or a pair of Royal Guards?

FYI, I picked up a Sideshow Storm Trooper from White Wizard Toys for less than $60 with free shipping.
