I just purchased both of these statues off of StarwarsShop.com and there was a limit of 2. Went back to see if they were there and they already sold out. Now that was fast. Hope some of you got one.

So these were available just an hour ago or so?

Ughhh... I have been hoping someone would have some Vader's left to buy since I laxed getting an order in before everyone sold out http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

I'm not even kidding they were only on there for maybe 5 minutes. I too was wanting to get both of these without having to pay scalper prices. I tried to get 2 but I guess i got the last 2 because they cancelled my order for the second yoda and vader. They must not have got very many or people were just ordering like mad. If I find another vader I'll pm you http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I was lucky enough to score Vader II as a "Buy Now" on eBay for 599.00. I missed out on him when SWS.com first opened. I have no interest in Yoda.

It's nice to get lucky every now and then. Nice score. They must have had a couple go unclaimed.

I'd rather wait for the GG Vader statue and the Sideshow Vader statue. A lot cheaper and the qualiy is as good if not better.

There is no doubt that the Gentle Giant version will blow away the Attakus one. Its just for that price it was really hard to pass up http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I dunno about the GG version blowing away the Attakus Vader II, but the quality should at the very least be comparable. Plus I never quite liked the Vader II's pose a whole lot.

Of course GG's Vader is going to be much more affordable, so that's mainly why I passed on the Attakus version. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif I'm eager to see Sideshow's 1/4 scale Vader.

I just received my Darth Vader II from Starwarshop today and let me just say that this statue has surpassed my expectations. I had no idea it would be this huge and the detail is just awesome. The box he came in is almost as big as my Don Post R2. Starwarsshop did a great job with shipping too which was a pleasant surprise. Now I can't wait for my Yoda. Peace http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Don't jump the gun and claim that the GG Vader will be way better than the Attakus Vader II statue. I have the Vader II and it is amazing. The only comparison I can make at this point is the GG Chewbacca vs. the Attakus Chewbacca...and believe me, the detail on Attakus Chewbacca is unreal and there is no comparison. I even like the Attakus Chewbacca more than the Vader II, and that says a lot. As for Sideshow's Vader, I guess only time will tell. I'm sure it will look great though.
