I ordered my Vader through BBTS instead of GG.  $71.99 instead of $80.

Looks like the vynil cape is more flexible than the original from 3 3/4 inches version.

vintage 12 inches Vader was a different mold. It announced the new era lightsaber (cilindric weapon)

I think this is one of the coolest Vader pieces I've ever grabbed, definitely in the top 5.

 

Here's a couple pics for those that are interested in how these clamshells can be opened without any damage. 



There are 2 pieces of tape along the left and right sides, and 3 pieces along the top.



It folds open, attached at the bottom.





The cardback lifts right out.



He's held in the inner bubble by twist ties around each arm and each leg.



A few other shots...

Thanks Dale!  This is one of the coolest pieces I've picked up in a very long time. 

Now I just have to figure out where to display it!  ;D
