I thought this Vader looked good and I have considered getting the Boba Fett bust. Now that I have seen these together it makes me want the Vader and Boba for display. I don't have any full scale busts, but I'm guessing Boba will be my first, while I search for a good price on Vader.

I have heard that some Vader bust owners have been able to get the Shaw face under the mask. Has anyone here tried it and/or does it require some type of modification?

You'll have no problem selling that thing! You can't get that by itself and most people are displaying theirs, so go for it! You'll probably do well!

Agree 100%. Some armor details may not be perfectally accurate but looking at it as a large statue, rather than a prop replica (which it's not), it's hard to top. So lifelike!

I guess what I'm asking is, if I plan to display it and change it up from time to time, is there an easy way to put the Shaw face piece under the helmet? Can it even be done? Does it require some modification to get the helmet over the face?

I have heard that some owners have been able to get the mask pieces over the face, but others say it cannot be done. I just wondered how, or if it is an easy thing to do?

Medusa

As far as I know that is not possible without damaging the mask from the inside. I know the ears are to big ( cut them off and you might have a chance ^^ ).

More people comment on this piece than any other (1:1 Maul bust is a close second) in my collection. Which say's alot, having MR sabers, blasters, helmets and the falcon. Maybe having it placed in the center of everything makes it seem more important http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

It's my favorite piece. Actually all my SSC 1:1 busts and my OT MR helmets...and soon efx Vader http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif are my favorites http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I would love to get the Boba Fett bust but funds and display space are shrinking http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif So for now I'm strickly collecting the sith as far as busts.

Would love a Dooku if they could nail the sculpt also Revan would be an instant buy.

Hey guys... Im hoping to get some advice from you fellas. I really want this bust... BAD. I have a few items I would part with but the wife (suprisingly) told me I shouldnt sell anything I may want to keep. Things Im thinking about selling...

Code 3 Slave 1 with both acrylic cases (standing and landing positions)
PF Yoda and Clone
MR Shadow Trooper Helmet
MR Tac Ops Helmet
Rarer Vintage figs like Blue Snags
Tons of 3 3/4 ships

etc... etc...etc

I dont really want to part with these but Im obsessing over this 1:1.

I know its not the most accurate but I dont care... its a great representation and even more fantastic that I havea choise with the helmet or the Shaw head.

What do you guys think?

Boba86Solo
04-27-2011, 09:42 PM
What are you asking? Should you trade, items for it? If you don't have the money or space, sure.

sithmasterjedi
04-27-2011, 09:43 PM
That's a tough one since everybody will have a different view. Some might say keep the vintage stuff others could go with just props or even an OT focus.

It's gonna have to be your decision but I can tell you that if it were me, the only stuff I wouldn't sell would be my MR stuff and my SSC 1:1 busts.

I'm actually selling some of my SSC 12" figures to fund my efx Vader helmet....Priorities http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Tweekem
04-27-2011, 11:12 PM
Im just asking if you didnt have it (or in my case want it) would you part with items like these to fund it. I know its my decision obviously.. just like to see what other collectors would do.

Outer_Rim
04-28-2011, 04:31 AM
I would keep them. I donīt like the idea of selling stuff I donīt really want to part with, because I know I would regret it. I understand that "I want one pretty badly" feeling you are having, but you can always buy it later on, although maybe more expensive.

Lam
04-28-2011, 11:21 AM
If you need to sell stuff to get the money required, I'd sell stuff like the toy vehicles or other things that you could easily re-buy in the future if you wanted to (premium formats, etc.). Things like the MR Shadow Stormtrooper, however, rarely show up on the secondary market, so I'd think really hard before parting with those, since you may not ever see them again.

ddoughboy1978
04-28-2011, 06:08 PM
Ehhh I have a 1:1 vader, great bust, if you ever do decide to sell your items, just make sure you won't regret it once you do it..... I almost let go of a MR item for another item.... I couldn't part with it so choose wisely

Tweekem
04-28-2011, 09:46 PM
Thanks guys... I have to agree... I also have a yearly toy show that a few guys in my Chicago trade group do and its comin up in 2 weeks (Kane County Toy Show in Illinois) so Im hoping to unload a ton of my 3 3/4 mimb ships, figs and other odds and ends.

I appreciate your opinions guys and I think Id really kick myself later for parting with the list in my above post.

Thanks again!

Anyone here have a problem with the paint on the inside top of the face mask flaking off? I just noticed today a little white spot. Thinking it was a piece of foam or something, I blew on it and it got bigger.Upon closer inspection, I realized it was the paint coming off.
Anyone else noticed this? Think Sideshow will help me out?
I've had this bust since it was first released and just noticed this today when I was packing it up to sell to another scummer.
It's almost like it was an air bubble or something.

The way you're displaying the busts, I'd say go with the helmeted look (even though I personally like the reveal better as a stand alone).

The diameter are almost twice the size as the bust stands and they stand well on the ground more like an accent table. I already been tested because there was an earthquake on the east coast last week which was very unusual for the east coast.

Congrats on Vader. Yeah, it looks like you got one of the better reveal portraits. So you're not going to display it?
Regardless, awesome set of 1:1 busts. Looks great!

I got an offer from a guy to change the eyes on my bust wit glass eyes. I passed for now since Shaw head stays in the box.

My heart is broken... the deal for the EX bust fell apart. Oh well... get the refund and keep on hunting I suppose... or get the refund and start my own Vader 1:1 project... hmmm... I could get a great start with $1400 right?

It's a pretty impressive bust. Wish it was more accurate though, the Portumac helmet was not Sideshow's best choice to recast alas...

^^Thanks for the stand info, I'll have to look into that.^^
I've made arrangements to pick-up the non-exclusive version bust in Dec from a fellow 'Scummer. Excited to finally own a "definitive" Vader piece after ogling it here for over 5 years. Hardest part will be deciding how to display it; w/the Palpatine bust or separately.

A new 1:1 Darth Vader bust: Star Wars Darth Vader Life-Size Bust by Sideshow Collectible | Sideshow Collectibles (http://www.sideshowtoy.com/collectibles/star-wars-darth-vader-sideshow-collectibles-400249/)

http://www.sideshowtoy.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/star-wars-darth-vader-life-size-bust-feature-400249.jpg


The new bust, has a different pose (looking to the right this time), doesn't have reveal and thus no greeblies on the back of the neck. Not sure about the sculpt yet, need more photos to be sure what is going on, we know the original was simpply cast off Portumac Vader.

Yes, mask style and cape hook indicate ROTJ Vader. I'm not a big SS collector but the sculpt looks OK.

This Vader bust must be a dust magnet. How do you keep it clean without scratching it?

Hey Guys,

Any1 bought the Vader life size bust (v1 or v2) from sideshow to Canada? How much was the shipping? I think Sideshow is actually offering a fixed price of 100$ for Canada. I googled and saw some1 talking about 290$. Any1 can confirm? Thx!

If anybody is still looking for the helmet stand that came with the exclusive “Fat Monster Studios” gave me a quote of 200 euros plus shipping to 3D print one... haven’t pulled the trigger yet but he owns one and can recreate it exactly. Message him on Facebook if interested.

MrPickles
12-30-2017, 08:48 PM
Good to know. Though $240+over seas shipping from the Czech Rep. for a 3D printed plastic stand does not move the impulse needle.

The plastic chain is accurate for Vader
