Thread: Darth Vader Collectors Gallery Statue

    Thank you for posting the pictures, duncan27. Your statue looks nice, and goes well next to the mini bust. It's a great space-saving sculpt.

    I don't think they are meant to be removed. I believe they signify light seeping through those sections. If you were to remove the stickers, I'm afraid it will be all black underneath, and would take away the "light" effect. As I mentioned before, I own the original statue, and those sections are white, even when the lights are off. I think the photos from Gentle giant are those of the prototype, and not the final product. Below you can see a picture of the larger Vader statue with the lights turned off. Those sections remain white ...



    I'm also adding here a picture of my statue next to the Gree bust, in the same position as the one you took, to serve as size comparison between both Vader statues ...

    thanks lightsword... looking at your statue gives me some good comparison shots. I won't remove the stickers, but they do look out of place still for me. Also seeing your base it reinforces my belief that the base should be more glossy.

    You are welcome. There's a lot of gloss given to the 1/6 version as you pointed out. That said, personally I think the sculpt looks good also with the less glossy base, making Vader himself stand out more. Have you gotten any other statues in a similar scale as Vader? Not from GG, but I can recommended the Emperor from Attakus from their elite series, although the face sculpt isn't the best around.The original was too big for my shelf so I picked up the smaller version (6 1/2" high), and I like how it displays ...

    At the moment he is " finishing" up my sith set. I have the Ventress and Dooku statue and the Maul and bloodfin statue. The emperor hologram from sideshow is the only non gentle giant in the set.

    Thanks for the pictures! I've been debating getting this statue and now after seeing it I think I'm going to pull the trigger and get one. I also think I'll add some clear gloss paint to the base so it looks like the larger one. Does Vader separate from the base or is it attached?

    Vader is attached, it is all one piece

    I saw a suggestion from someone on Facebook & totally agree, when showing a statue it's definitely a good idea not to have a significant amount of the presentation area being the same colour as what your showing.
