It seems pretty obvious that Vader will be built on the Darth Vader (The Dark Times) body.

As will the ANH Vader with Interrogation Droid, and the ROTJ Vader with Electrocution / Skull / See-Through effect, as will the Vader in Meditation Chamber ($89.99), and Glow in the Dark Vader (for no real reason whatsoever) and the red-painted Vader FoR CHriSTmAs!!1!

Or, the one I actually would want that they probably wouldn't do, this Vader on the funeral pyre.

The key question here is this - will Hasbro recognize when collectors have tapped out on the new sculpt?

But if they went back and did the complete meditation chamber from TESB?  Because that 500th Vader only had the seat.  I would so be up for that.

My son loved Darth Vader when he was potty training, so I used that 500th Vader to show him everyone goes. He's 7 now and still calls him "Potty Vader."

That said, I really want a full meditation chamber. I don't care if I have to buy a 3rd party 3d printed kit.

I was looking for another thread when I came across this one, and I was shocked.  This set was actually announced back in February?  And we still haven't seen it yet?!?!  Fingers crossed that it's going to be revealed at Hasbro Pulse Con.  I have to wonder if there was a problem in the development process with this?  Was that the reason for the delay?

Yeah, considering both figures are essentially kit-bashes of existing OWK Vader/Obi-Wan figures, it is kind of strange that we haven't seen this yet.  Maybe Pulse Con like you said...

Thanks, Nick.

Is it the 19th, which the article states early? They also state the 14th at 1pm Eastern at the end.  ??? I suppose check both days.

I was wondering the same thing when I saw someone bring up the September 14th date for preorders.  Evidently it was confirmed with Hasbro's PR company that it will be available for preorder tomorrow, September 14th.

Let me see if I've got the math right:
+ $17 Obi-Wan Kenobi (carded and kitbashed)
+ $17 Darth Vader (carded and kitbashed)
+ $6 cardboard box to hold it all together

I get that the cards are important for some collectors, but I feel like we're all carrying the water for them here. Nevertheless, I'm pretty excited for this set.

Looking at the pics on pulse, sometimes the Vader is called "Darth Vader (Showdown)" and other times it is "Darth Vader (Duel's End)".  Weird...

Must be some early production pics and they changed it during development?

BTW, thanks for the links Jeff.  Used them to preorder my two.
This is the way.


I have spoken.
