Sheeat.  That sure as hell came outta nowhere!   ???

My question:  Why?  Why the heck would they do another Silver Vader?  Just to appease everyone who missed out on the original (and different) one?  If so, I guess that's kinda nice of them, but will folks really consider this an adequete substitute for the real thing?  Strange...

But sign my silly butt up for two more!   :P

Pass again, this silver stuff was old with the Clone Trooper, its really rediculous now and getting somewhat piggish.

How about Yarna?  What about Hermi Odle????

My guess is that it's yet another OT DVD promotional tie-in.  My guess would be TRU, since they got the silver R2 and Clone Trooper.  As things stand now, the Silver Sandtrooper is the Fan Club's domain.  I can't see them taking on another silver exclusive figure so soon.

Oh great, another Silver Vader. At least this one does not have the red saber sticking out of the package.

Here's my paycheck again Mr. Lucas...

Dear Hasbro,

We get the point. You like to rape us. Please stop. I am sore.

Love,

Jared

Huh?

Uh....

Hmrph.

I don't know what to say... thanks to a TRU snafu that delayed the Clone Trooper til this spring, we could end up with THREE of these lame Silver figures this year (Clone, Sandtrooper, Vader).    >:(

I'd bet too that he'll be a TRU exclusive just like most of the others since the bubble sticker looks like all the other TRU ones.  Of course, because I have no power to resist, I'll end up with one of these Silver Vaders, but Arg!  Enough already!

Horrible looking figure!!!  I guess what's really disturbing is, #1 the lightsaber is painted, and #2 is the figure looks like it was spray painted or painted with a flat grey paint.  Nothing even close to the first Silver Vader.

These silver figures are getting stuipid.  Toy Fair Vader and Silver R2 should of been the only ones since it was for the 25th anniversy of ANH.  Now we have a Sandtrooper (okay they were in ANH), Boba Fett (SE. ANH), Clone Trooper (Why?) and now another Vader.  
I wonder if this is an attempt from Hasbro to give those people who complin about not having a TF Vader a chance to own a Silver painted Vader.

You know, these might be a little more interesting if they were chrome like the first Vader and R2 were. Those were pretty spiffy.

I'll probably get it if it comes to TRU. I'm kinda stupid that way.
