Grey Vader on Orange Card
« on: March 4, 2006, 04:12 PM »
As I've been digging into the various Vader variants, I've come across what would appear to be the "holy grail" of modern Vader collecting.

The grey-armoured Vader is believed to be an early sample, likely from Asia.  I've read that there are only 3 or 4 known to exist and one was recently sold on eBay for $2600:o

I have a feeling this will be the last figure to be added to my Vader focus.  ;)

Yep thats the illusive asian grey vader.  I have a pic of it from an old catalog previewing the potf2 line before they came out showing this vader.  It is unknown how many there actually are but yes I believe the count now is 4-5 known to exist.  That last one that sold was from a guy on potf2.com's collection swjunk.  He just got it a few months ago and had been searching for it forever.  I still dont know why he sold it.  The others are in private collections and the owners are holding on to them for dear life.

Its not really a variant, more of a pre production type figure which a few of were released over in asia from my understanding.  Its one of my holy grails though.  I doubt i'll ever get one but i'll keep looking.

Got mine in '95 from some guy on the usenet boards living in Hong Kong. He called himself Jawa Jim. Paid $150-$175. Sold it in 2000ish to a collector in Tokyo for $3700.

I missed it for awhile, but not anymore. Lol.
