I am interested in the Attakus metal Vader. Anyone know anything about these? I know they are just under 5" tall, painted, made of pewter, limited to 2,500 and cost around $90, but that's it. I was not able to get any pictures from the Attakus website.

I just received mine the other day.
My vintage camera cannot show the detail of this piece, but it IS one highly detailed figure.
The figure comes superbly boxed with box, figure and COA all numbered from the limited edition run of 2500.
The Vader, by himself, weighs nearly 1 1/2 pounds (the most expensive paperweight I have ever purchased!)
(The POTF2 Vader is in the pics for size comparison)

Here are some pics:

Very nice. Now you need to get the Death Star diorama to place Vader in! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

What a piece of junk! For $90, this thing is TRASH. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

I agree. I would not pay $90 for that. But if it floats your boat, go for it.

Yeah... man I would love to see DARTHPOTTS defend this.

I haven't seen these personally yet, but I've talked to at least one collector whose opinion you would all respect and he had nothing but great things to say about them.

I'm anxious to see them.

I ordered one of these....after getting it I decided to re-sell it. It is ok but no way in hades is it worth $90!

Maybe $40....and only cause it is real heavy and made of metal so I feel like $40 might be fair.....the sculpting is nice considering it is a 4" figurine but I am spoiled and compare everything now to Gentle Giant......it's not even close to their quality and detail.

I found curious that we are getting so many die cast options for these figures (Attakus, Hasbro Titanium, D'Agostini).
Based on your pics, the Vader looks really cool, these are a little pricey if you ask me but I am sure about Attakus quality.
Anyone that have these and the Titanium can post some comparison pics? how about the scale are they similar?

Thanks for the pictures Darth_Jaxx.
Philip, I hope you will share your opinion with us when you see one in person. As for me, I am still undecided. $90 does seem a little high for the scale of the figure, but I know it is pewter. Are these supposed to be part of a diorama set?
