Sideshow 12" Darth Vader
« on: May 15, 2008, 11:39 PM »
You can't really see much, but I guess you can consider it confirmed...

He's more Machine now than Man…

All I can see is a silhouette behind Anakin...  I'm guessing he'll be a "big reveal" planned for SDCC'08.  ;)

Odd because the Sith Eyes Anakin (aka Darth Vader) was last year's SDCC exclusive.

Perhaps this is a two-pack with an Armored version?

Wasn't that two years ago?  I thought last year was the holo chair with holo Sidious.  I am hoping this is a stand alone figure since I don't think we need a third Anakin.

I hope the reveal is SDCC and i also hope this means they will bring back the Inclusive edition for this one.

With everyone wanting a Vader,I too hope this is an INCLUSIVE figure.It's probably the only way I'll be able to get my hands on one!

yeah they would have to be insane not to go Inclusive on this one. Maul and Jabba were Inclusive and Vader is on another level. people who haven't picked up even 1 SS 12" will be wanting this one. I'm afraid it's going to be over $100 though :/ Should be pretty awesome though. I have all the sith so far in this line, hopefully they make dooku soon and the main sith will be complete :)

Sad, but not only do I have to work that day,we have no internet at my work place either.Hopefully the EXCLUSIVE title is just that it is being sold @ SSC.If not,there will be some very irritated collectors who won't be able to get their hands on one,except on the secondary market.

I'm surprised Vader is not an inclusive edition, however, for you and others at work without internet, copy down SS's customer service number.  If you are a subscriber to the newsletter, you can call at 10 AM PST and order over the phone.  You just need to give them your email address to confirm that you are eligable to order.  I did this for the old Kenobi since the website was having problems that day.

Is it just me or is Vader's helmet too small?

Obviously it will be great to see the whole thing this weekend on display at SDCC.  I was hoping for ROTJ Vader with removeable helmet.  I still might just wait for that version.  This one looks decent in the preview picture.
