You know, this is a nice card for it being SW related.

I would like to see the Padme one get done eventually.

I have wanted Wokkling figures for years, this would be the perfect way for us to get some. Nice thinking!  ;D

^ I like your thinking, guys.

Call me crazy, but I find the Santa Ewok and Padme Tree really appealing.

I think they should make more Jawa's so you can recreate this set.

I haven't been able to aquire any of the Chrismas Star Wars figures so, unfortunately, I won't even bother trying in the future. These things are usually harder to come by than most exclusives. I've said it a million times before and I'll say it again, It's a shame Hasbro fails time and time again to put product in my hands that I would gladly pay to have.

I have not collected the holiday figures, even though I have found them. I have never been thrilled by them except for Yoda. However, this thread has given me a new idea to collect! SW Christmas art/cards!   I will say that I would love to see a Padme Christmas Tree! And finally, we found a reason for the creation of the Ewoks! May they glory in that role!

Well, don't get too excited about the new Holiday Vader.  He's in the latest Insider and he retails for $19.99 (SW Shop exclusive).  Seems to be quite a theme going on, eh? 

And this is the best part - they have the Lava Vader sculpt pictured - not silver vac metalized but red vac metalized!  Verbiage claims that the final sculpt will vary.

As with past year editions, he will come with a festive base and card.

Pass.

When I saw the first prototype shots of the Lava Vader from Target, he was Red Vac Metal. 



Hasbro wasn't lying when they said that the era of silver figures was over, but apparently they haven't given up on the vacuum-metallized exclusive figure concept just yet. 

The JediDefender News Room has dug up some dirt on a planned Target exclusive for 2005 - Red Metallic Darth Vader.  No details yet on the how or when, but you can expect to add this guy to your collection sometime in 2005!  Watch for more details on this figure as we get closer to April 2nd!

I guess when Target changed their mind to get the "painted lava" Vader, Hasbro never ditched the red vac-metal idea... maybe it's the same prototype figure even?

Man...  It'd better be spiffy or I'm passing.  I like the McQuarrie-esque ones just because of the material they're spawned from, but not what this sounds like.  Forget that Vader figure then.

He's up on StarWarsShop:

2005 Holiday Vader

"$14.99"

"red metallic finish (not vac-metallized, as previously reported)"

"Additionally, a figure-exclusive holiday greeting card is also included, this time illustrated with a whimsical scene of Vader building a "snowtrooper""

"PROTOTYPE PICTURED. FINAL PRODUCT SUBJECT TO CHANGE"



I love the cardback, but I wish they'd put even half that much creativity into the figure. :-\

Ok I was a mark and bought the Lava Vader. But this is really ugly. Looks like I'll be skipping on this one.
I remember my dream now.
