Just placed an order for my Kuby's and checked out HLJ. They have Vader on pre-order. 17,000 Yen or roughly $163.57 US or $197.36 CDN.

Cutting back, huh...?   :-X


Granted, this is a beautiful, and very tempting piece here.

Easy to say no to this.  Just order the GG Vader statue and then add on the Sideshow Vader statue.  No problem at all saying no to this one :-X

See, I passed on those other two, so this one was easy to say yes to.  Especially after getting a cheap Koto Vader a few weeks ago, this baby will look wonderful next to that on my shelf.

I had to order the Sideshow Vader simply because of it sheer size and incredible detailing, but the poseability of this Medicom Vader makes it very competitive for my hard earned money.  I'm not sure how long I can stay away from it.

Just placed my order with HLJ, I don’t want to risk missing out on this one (still bugs me that I didn’t act fast on the Rocketeer)- Medicom production runs aren’t enormous and this one will sell like hotcakes… it’s a thing of beauty.

I placed my order a while back but went through BBTS since I had a coupon to use.  I cancelled by Sideshow Vader and I'm glad I did since I really like this one better.  Now I just have to wait until summer and put it next to Vader's lightsaber, which should make a nice display (and I can move the crappy Hasbro one somewhere else).

I ordered one of these from abc-express.  Judging by the quality of the Medicom Luke, this figure will kick serious ass!

Boy, that price sure is tempting - still, that's quite a bit for a 12" figure...

If I wait, I'll regret it.

If I buy it, my wife will kill me; or even worse, hold out on me.

HLJ says June release, but maybe a short time after.

End of June. Medicom are also re-releasing the Jedi Luke. Not sure if there will be any variation in packaging or the figure itself though.

I moved this thread back to this section as this is a 12" figure.
