I've been able to track down 17 out of the 18 total (I'm not going to go crazy and try to track down a double set for the two different shades of green - as far as I'm concerned, Hasbro intended on there being a "green" part - if some of my green parts are dark green and others are more of a forest green, I really do not care).

Anyway, using Rob's short-hand, here's what I need:

[  ] Orange Helmet - Green Torso - Green Lightsaber


Here's what I still have to trade:

[  ] Green Helmet - Yellow Torso - Orange Lightsaber (x3)
[  ] Red Helmet - Purple Torso - Blue Lightsaber (x2)
[  ] Orange Helmet - Blue Torso - Orange Lightsaber
[  ] Yellow Helmet - Blue Torso - Yellow Lightsaber (damaged cardback)
[  ] Yellow Helmet - Red Torso - Red Lightsaber


Would prefer to conduct a trade more than selling them...

Once you have your last trade done would you consider selling the rest?

I'm worried that Hasbro is going to see that idiots like me bought 18 of this thing and start farting out prototype runs like this every year.

Good point. If hasbro announces that they're going to shift from TVC to more of these prototype style figures, we're going to all come to your house and make you eat each and every variation.

Do we know if this Vader thing is kind of over and done now or is there a chance it'll make an appearance in better quantities going forward?

I would say definitively that we absolutely do not know.

I just bought a lot of 7 of these on eBay... so two things:

1)  I'll have some extras to trade pretty soon
2)  They'll be available at Target.com and will show up in every Target store in the country within a day

When I say trade, I mean for color variants that I'm missing... so that works if you have extras but I'm just looking to flip them one-for-one.  I'll update here with what I have whenever they arrive.

Hey Rob, I think I can help you out.  I only have 6 with one dupe, but it's the yellow helmet, blue torso, yellow saber version.  If you want to swap, I can use your red head, purple chest, blue saber dupe.  That shores up several missing pieces for me.  PM me if you want to swap.
