Vader, yes!  As much as I love the ANH armour, it's nice to have the removable helmet option with the ROTJ armour.

Great coverage on Toy Fair Jeff! Was there any indication as to when this wave would come out? The Jedi Luke is the 6" figure I've been waiting for. Thanks!

Oh wow. I've only picked up Luke and R2 from this line so far, but now I may be in for the long haul...

From what I've heard the Black Pauldron Sandtrooper is a straight repaint with the  same accessories.  The funny thing is the colored part of the pauldron was an insert and the black ones were just missing them.  The original pauldron has the insert and has been sculpted correctly for a colored pauldron, but not for the black one. 

Darth Vader and Luke look good compared to 3 3/4" but compared to the high end 12" lack a good deal of realism as to be expected.  I am very interested to see them in person.

Nice wave overall.  Although I'd rather have another new figures as opposed to the Sandie repaint, that is still one heck of a figure and I have no problem getting another version as well.  The Vader and Luke both look amazing.  Can't wait to pick those up and have them dueling on the desk :).

Lord Almighty, that Vader……..





(BTW, his crotch guard is incorrectly over his inner robe. Not sure if that'll be fixed since it looks like the guard and belt are one piece :D)

Need to track down two stormtroopers, and will definitely need to find that Vader.
