Looks cool, but I think I'll pass. It's about as useful to me a those hologram figures. Hopefully Kentucky Fried Beru&Owen won't be too far behind... that would be cool to see.  >:D

Notice the closed flap on the tunic?  Nice!

Wow, this is a nice surprise, and very cool.  I'll definitely be picking one up as well - I wonder where this will turn up at, since the battle packs are supposed to go towards the "slim design" in the near future (or by next year at least, I can't remember).

Just read at JTA that according to their sources, this doesn't have an "exclusive" home yet - and they are still pitching it to retailers.  For now, they are gauging collector reaction/interest, and it would be at best a late 2010 item.

Ahh, that's good to know! This is an interesting "Battlepack". Will be nice to see some close-ups and find out. I know a lot of people have wanted this Vader. And with this pyre, can we expect a Qui-Gon one to follow?

Hmmm.... looks good, but is it something you really need?

Agreed.  This is a "wait for the sale" item IMO.  Wouldn't mind having it, but it's an easy pass when it pops up at $30.

The way pricing is going, $30 might be cheap in 2011. I wouldn't mind seeing the as the '11 SDCC exclusive.

Looks pretty cool, it's an easy buy for me being a Vader nut.  But I'd love to get a better look from the top to see what he looks like with those flames.

I'd buy one those in a heart beat...I imagine something akin to the Vader/Emperors head theme where you push a button, the flames glow orange and the Force theme plays in the background

Dittos...  that funeral pyre dealie is all kinds of sweet.  Lights and sound make it even better.  I vote "yes, please".  :)

I love that idea Scott.  I thought the sound chip with the 'Disturbance in the Force' set was fantastic.  Lighting up of the flames would be a great touch too.

This seems like it fits the mold of a Convention exclusive - Celebration V?
