imo its a shame they never made this set,i thought it was an awesome tribute to a hallmark moment in the trilogy :(

That's exactly what the set could be. A Hallmark Christmas ornament.
well i thought it was an awesome idea,it was a very cool moment for me at least in the movie,very deep,but thats just me

I agree, it's a cool moment in the movies and would be a neat playset. I was just thinking that if not action-figure based, they'd probably make a smaller scaled ornament with lights and sounds.

I really hope this gets released this year or next. I may be in the minority but I really dug this sets a lot. I hope there is some news at SDCC.

Was there any Q&A update on this set, I do not remember if Hasbro gave any word on this set.

I think this was the last time it came up in the Q&A...

1. Now that you've had some time to digest the fan response to that Funeral Pyre Darth Vader set at and after SDCC, what do you think - yea or nay? Any closer to finding it a home in the 2010/2011 line-up? Or is it pretty much dead thanks to the slowdown in Legacy product demand?

** The response seemed to be good, and we're on the hunt for a suitable retail partner for this. The slowdown in Legacy has not helped a lot of collector-targeted exclusives (as this would be) so we have to find the right partner who can work with smaller quantities.

I wonder if this set will end up in the BPs line? TVC would really be a great collection to hash this out in, especially in TVC packaging, not the blue "Shadow of the Dark Side" packaging.

Things are starting to not look so good for funeral pyre Darth Vader.  It would almost have to be an online exclusive based on what the major retailers have been doing.  But as seen in some of the conversation in this thread, that's seeming less and less likely.

Oh well.  Was looking forward to this, but no big deal if it never makes it....and what a waste of their #2 question.   ::)

I personally don't care if this is made or not. We have plenty of Vaders and Lukes to recreate this scene ourselves.

Damn.  I was really hoping this would make it.  It still needed some work, the flames weren't quite right, but it was a neat concept.

Can't say that I'm surprised - I don't think the concept looked very good.  And this isn't one that I'd really have wanted anyway; primary because the display we saw didn't appeal to me.

I am really disappointed to hear the bleak news on this one. I thought this would have been a cool display piece for an iconic scene that wraps up the saga. Hopefully it will see a limited run one day, I was 100% in for this one.
