Here are some side by side shots of the RAH and the Marmit.
While the Marmit isn't nearly as posable as the RAH I think it looks better.
Maybe I'm biased because I own four Marmits and I bought RAH Vader and they look ridiculous together.
I'm willing to wait to see what Sideshow brings to the table before I rush out and buy one of these.



The RAH's helmet looks weird too.  Compare with this prop replica:

He does look a little short to be a stormtrooper.  How does it look next to the RAH Vader and Luke?

I've got to disagree with you Matt.
If I'm going to shell out $200+ each for some figures they should be in scale at least to each other.
David Prowse who is 6'7" in the Vader suit was close to 7' tall.
Mark Hamill was 5' 8".
Stormtroopers were an average of 6'.

While Vader is taller than the Stromtrooper and the Stormtrooper is taller than Luke but the scale is pretty off. 
This is because they are all based off of a the standard RAH 12" body which again for the cost is a real knock against the RAH line.  Scale has always been a huge factor in the world of Star Wars right back to the original Kenner line.

I'm very tempted to pick up a Medicom Vader and Stormie now that they are hovering around the $110 price.

I honestly don't think Sideshow will get around to doing Vader or a stormtrooper because of the tooling involved.

Me too.  I ordered two the other day.  For that price I couldn't pass it up.  The next day the wife tells me (without knowing about my purchase mind you) "We're on a budget, no extra spending."  I guess I'll try to keep it a secret and blend them in with my Marmits. ;)

As far as my opinions stated above, I've got to say after doing more research into the irregularity of the actual movie costumes, I feel I can welcome these guys into my collection taking on the role as "stunt men" for action poses, whereas the Marmits can just stand around and look good in neutral poses.

I'd like to know why Sideshow's website has the Marvel RAH figures for sale but not the SW ones...maybe there's an exclusion to their partnership that does not include SW 12" figures?

 ???

Probably, I think Medicom is real particular what they distribute and to whom. Since Sideshow already does their own 12" SW figures, either SS didn't want to sell the RAH ones to compete against their own or Medicom just simply didn't offer them the chance. Now that Medicom sees the sales potential here in the US, they will probably start offering all their SW products over here one way or another. I'm just curious if the SW Kubricks are next. They already distribute the Marvel, Alien, Batman and Bearbricks through Diamond so it's probably only a matter of time....

I'm glad I saw these comparison shots, I like the Medicom so much better, now I don't have to be tempted to buy the RAH one. Can't wait to see Sideshow's offering, that'll be the one I buy.

RAH and Medicom are the same.

I'm also tempted, but $129 is too much for me. Unless it was a 2-pack.

Just in case anyone wants to order the RAH version from Sideshow, it goes up for preorder tomrrow (Sept 29th) at 1:00pm EST.  I have no idea of the price but I would assume close to the sws.com price of $130.00.
