Vader is the one from this entire line I'll definitely be getting.
I like them all, but I don't have the budget or the space to display them all and I'm not a big fan of buying stuff and just stashing it in a closet.

I hope the vinyl material they are using for the cape will allow us to fold it down like the original figure.

I wouldn't mind variants here and there when they're called for but I don't want them to make up variants just to make more money. Make Vader's edition 2,500 and Double Scope for PGM with an edition of 500 would be excellent!

Variations on this line are NOT excellent. They are just a way for people to buy two of nearly the exact same figure. These are too expensive for that. People get all bent out of shape when they don't have the 'rarer' one or think their collection is incomplete. Fight OCD!!!

Who says people need complete collections? I welcome variations but I don't need them all. I am not a completist I just would like to see Gentle Giant offer PGMs exclusive variations that vary from the mass production figure. What might bother people is that the variation is only for those who are PGMs like the Big/Small head Han Solos.

The price range in my opinion is fine. To me they are not expensive but once again that's only my opinion.

Vinyl cape jawa is the only variant I care about. Big/small head Han doesn't interest me. I saw the set suddenly available today at BBTS for about 10 minutes (someone must have cancelled a preorder) and almost bought it, but I've never been crazy about either 1977 version of Han.

The eBay scalpers also don't seem to be having much luck so far selling small head han for their asking price of $150.

Any figure from this set including Fett and the Stormtrooper are outrageous for $150.

I wouldn't mind Fett if he wasn't selling for so much. And I'm not paying $100+ for the Stormtrooper. I never liked the way the head was fused onto the shoulders of that figure with no neck.

02-11-2011, 06:37 AM
This line is just so damn expensive but I am really considering adding vader to my fett on the wall.

However, the three figures displayed on my desk are TVC Vader, TVC Jedi Luke and 300th Boba, so I suppose if I buy vader I have to buy a 12" Jedi Luke if they do one. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif Hopefully they get that far or at least cherry pick so of the later figures from the line.

[/QUOTE]

It's possible, but I have to admit this would be a *massive* mistake on GG's part. I think the real attraction to these pieces are simply the scaled up ratios for the vintage to the Jumbo size. Throwing some sort of non-vintage saber would be similar to using a modern toy blaster, or other accessory. It completely falls out of line with the intent and focus of what these are supposed to be. However - I will admit I would love, love , love to see a (correct) jumbo scale DT saber. That would a must-have for me.

I'm in the same boat with everyone else, received the conf. from GG, and I have three more I preordered through Razor. (no updates). Hopefully have the GG order in next week. I can't wait to see some RL pics from everyone.

Here is an odd question - does anyone have any plans to open an example for display ? I'm not, but this piece begs a cool diplay set-up. I think mine will be cased with a vintage SW MOC, and a loose example.

And some of us are saving a good bit of coin in the process. Enough so that I was able to order a 3rd one from Razor, so for a little patience, it's a win-win for me. I have never understood why people pay a premium just to get something in a few weeks early. Once these ship, they will be plastered all over ebay, so what's the point ?

Well I generally think as you do, but from my experience with these so far I rather get them from GG because they are only handled once and the figures I got for BBTS were in bad shape. The ones I got from GG have been MINT so far. I'm sure some guys have received nice units from other places, but I have not. GG needs to rethink the packaging for these. They need to be in a poly bag in a box from China, not shipped like a box of Hasbro figures.

Not only do they come strait from GG, they are also REALLY good about replacing damaged pieces with no hassle since they usually have ample supply on hand.

Agree with you about protecting these out of the factory. I mentioned that to Jewell at GG and she said it was something they were already taking care of due to the large number of Han and Chewbacca scuffed bubbles.

That's a great point - I didn't know people were having issues with some of the resellers. I have orders coming in from both, so hopefully I'll have no issues. It certainly isn't worth saving a few bucks if I receive crushed figures.
In the sake of fairness, if I do have any issues I will post a follow up, with pictures.

Agreed. The vintage figures had signature paint apps that gave the human eyes a certain quality, consistent across the line. GG isn't quite nailing that unfortunately. The sculpt is there, but the pain is not.

I wanted to post a follow up, having ordered from Razor's. I can't recommend them (Michael) enough. I received my instock notice, and made an immediate PP payment on my pre-order balance. (This was on a Friday). Michael immediately confirmed the transaction, and the figures would be posted the following Monday. Monday the items were sent out with a follow up including the tracking information. The items were very well packaged, with NO damage, and I received them in 2 days. This is my first order from them, and I would not hesitate to continue to do business with them, or recommend them to anyone.

As far as the figures, these are just incredible. I wasn't expecting to be so impressed with these, and I can easily say for the price point and the "wow" factor this is the best modern Darth Vader item on the market right now. For a a size comp, here is an original 12b next to the GG piece. I couldn't be happier overall.

I wanted to post a follow up, having ordered from Razor's. I can't recommend them (Michael) enough. I received my instock notice, and made an immediate PP payment on my pre-order balance. (This was on a Friday). Michael immediately confirmed the transaction, and the figures would be posted the following Monday. Monday the items were sent out with a follow up including the tracking information. The items were very well packaged, with NO damage, and I received them in 2 days. This is my first order from them, and I would not hesitate to continue to do business with them, or recommend them to anyone.

That's cool and weird at the same time. GG is just 20 miles away and yet they can't seem to get me a Vader that isn't crushed or scrathed like a cat got to it.

this thing is freaking incredible. The last time I was this excited to open up a moc Vader it was 1978.

Wish Entertainment Earth would hurry up & finally ship him & Leia. They've been out for, like, 6-weeks already. If it wasn't for that sale they had I woulda steered clear of 'em.

This Vader looks [censored], one of the few figures I'll get from this line eventually.

Picked this one up at Comic Con for $60 and well worth it.

Got him for $55 at a toy show this past Sunday. Total impulse buy, but couldn't pass it up.

What? There are already repros of these things floating around? Man.. that community is a lot worse than I thought.

There's absolutely no incentive for repros in this line, except maybe for improving the capes of certain figures.

I'd buy a repro cape for a Tusken Raider if someone made one...

Gentle Giant has Chewie marked down to $49 for their sale. These are over priced. I have everything released to date including variants and exclusives and plan on getting 3PO, R2, ANH Stormie and Death Squad Commander, but have been holding out for a sale. I got Han, Chewie, Luke, Leia, Vader, Ben, Tusken and the cloth Jawa during the Entertainment Earth buy one get one half off and also got the discount they had running before they pulled it, but struggle with spending the $300 to complete the set, as I am done with this line after that...

My birthday was yesterday, and my wife got me the 12 1/2" Darth Vader! I love this line, I got Han and Leia for Christmas, and bought Chewie on my own over the summer. I'm hoping to get a couple more for Christmas THIS year. I know alot of people don't care for the line, and have no use for it, but this was MADE for me, these are easily my favorite collectibles in years.

Finally got Vader this week thanks to a scummer. Here he is (sorry about the bad pic) with Ben. I am done with this line until Luke Jedi comes out.

That's great. Hope it didn't cost a lot.

No, I paid what I consider fair prices, less than $150 for each Vader and Kenobi. Definitely not the $250-$400 that some sellers are asking :wtf:
