Wow, I just can't get over how much the Sideshow Vader dwarfs the Medicom one, and those pics make it very clear.  Great stuff!

And I shall call him... Mini-Me. :D

I still need to come see the new place (and Vader) in person one of these days.

You're always welcome Ryan.

Jesse, Glad you like the pics.  Don't youhave both figures?

 :-[  Not yet.  I've got the Medicom ROTS version, but still haven't grabbed the Sideshow one.  The shipping is outrageous to Canuckia, so I'm being patient and waiting for a reasonable price from a secondary seller (one that uses USPS, not UPS or FedEx - their additional charges to cross the border are another kick in the gut).

Sideshow's doing their 2nd chance thingy - I'm hoping that I can score this bad dude before the deal goes. Man, Vader could never be more beautiful!

I can finally say that I've added the Sideshow Vader to my collection.  And what a fantastic figure it is!

I remember reading about people being unhappy with the helmet (I think it didn't flare out "properly"?), but I have to say it looks pretty damn good to me.  8)

I think I'm going to take my 2 Medicom Stormtroopers and display them flanking this Vader.

Seems like medicom achieves more detail depicting faces like Jedi Luke or ROTJ Vader, what happens with sideshow is the depiction of a large scale texture on the suit and gloves.
