Agreed.Hmmm, another Vader/droid combo....like before. Yeah, he's a main character, but I'd prefer another Imperial instead with this set.
you are correct sir. it's completely different from the recent RO Vader. helmet looks different (makes me wonder if it is a removable helmet as well - almost looks like the same mold they used for the ROTS Anakin-Vader figure), looks like the only part that might be the same as the RO Vader is the outer cape.It's not. RO/ANH Vader is different than the ESB suit, which this depicts.
if it is removable then it will probably be the most recent Shaw/Christensen head sculpt from the Vintage line I'd guess or the ROTS burnt head sculpt (just not as crispy lol) unless just the back of the helmet comes off and all we see is Vader's cracked egg skull..That's what I thought - the hands, chest plate, and helmet gave it away. The helmet does look a bit bulky, perhaps it is removable - I wonder which likeness they would use if that's indeed the case?
Yeah, there was a big orange missile that launched out the head and the head itself launched to simulate "battle damage" I guess. The head was mounted on a big orange stalk though and looked kind of weird:If memory serves, the old one had a missile that came out of it. So this one is a big improvement, especially the details/paint apps!
Ah, forgot about that. I never picked up that set as I already had everything in it. It does look better with the orange bits gone, but why is it silver?
Yeah, maybe. It doesn't really look like something they just threw together though. Plus we have gotten similar stands lately with the speeder bikes. If it doesn't come with a stand, I will be disappointed.
don't count on it, it could just an SDCC display prop. They do that sometimes.
