BBTS has a slew of these in now, a little more expensive than eBay though

Maybe this has been mentioned before somewhere, but I noticed this article about limited edition Sandtroopers being sold on starwarsshop.com.

Finally received my Vader last night, I only managed to break it in two spots when putting it together ::)  The saber and the one footpeg both snapped.  Super Glue to the rescue!  Man what an impressive piece.  I'm thinking about getting the upcoming Yoda as well but haven't totally decided on that one yet

Kotobukiya
A new Darth Vader edition from this fantastic series of non-articulated figures is due out this summer, which poses the Dark Lord on a lava base with saber ablaze. An Anakin figure is planned to pair up with this Vader edition, and will be sold separately. Future releases include Jedi Luke, Slave Leia, R2-D2 and C-3PO, and clone troopers. Fortunately, much of the Koto line is available to domestic and international shoppers through other distributors.

Very cool stuff!

Kotobukiya hits the mark dead on with their sculpts - I only have a few imperials - the exclusive sandtroopers and the first Vader.

IMO, this one beats the hell out of the first Vader - I don't like the "thrusting" position of Vader #1.

He looks like Blankman doing you know what.   :D




"Uhhhhh"

The new Kotobukiya Darth Vader is up for preorder on SWS.com.  They say it ships on September 10th - This pose may even be better than the first Koto Vader!

Sweet!

That clone trooper is awesome - funny, Koto knows what flavor everyone wants - Big H has no clue.

If I had the SW license, I sure as **** would be paying more attention... ;)
