Nevermind, I find out here they never did the production run (apparently due to quality issues they halted it over 1.5 years ago :( ): http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=235515&page=3&p=3597442&viewfull=1#post3597442

------------

Does anyone know whether Sideshow ever actually made these 1:1 Lifesize Vader statues in a limited run? Link here: http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/07/07/sideshow-collectibles-releases-life-size-darth-vader-figure


Even on YouTube, the only videos seemingly are from conventions where they're showing off their awesome-looking demonstration unit. I wonder if they never actually went into production. Anyone have any info about whether the statue was ever produced? I think it is the best-looking lifesize Vader ever made other than the Lucasfilm Archive / Museum versions, but seems like it doesn't exist outside of their demo unit :P


Thanks if anyone has any clues ;)

I had it ordered when it canceled. The new one sideshow is doing was at the last SDCC.

Darn, sorry to hear that! Here's hoping the new model releases someday, it looks crazy good in their YouTube videos from SDCC :D

I found out what really happened.

A customer named Kylo bought out their entire first order last year on Grandparents Day.

You know I just couldn't resist.
