I should steer clear of this thread as well. Those pictures make this figure look amazing. I've been back and forth with the Sideshow 12" line, with price being the biggest factor keeping me away. If I only collected these, it wouldn't be a problem - but of course, that isn't the case. That being said, this Vader looks amazing. I had it on preorder (along with the Stormtrooper) earlier this year, but had to cancel when I lost my job. I had always hoped to just have a lineup of the "biggies" from ANH, and maybe Lando/Yoda/Fett when they got to all of them. Like Jesse mentioned though, I'm sure this Vader long gone from being available at this point - and I'd have to sell a lot of stuff to get back into these. Very, very nicely done though.
