Yes, that's why I said.the tunic is over the armour, like his ANH costume.
Supposedly in R1 he will have the tunic over the armor, and have the red lenses.the tunic over the armor, and have the red lenses like in ANH?
maybe it's only me, but I don't seem to be able to understand half of your posts. What does that mean^^. The figure does have the armour over the tunic, and I would expect him to look like that in the film too, just like in ANH. So this probably is RO accurate. What is one scene?Yes, that's why I said.

So just wondering how R1 specific this is?
Maybe it's just one scene though, hence the more standard figure. Which is fine by me.
The onscreen armor or the toys? If you are talking about the onscreen character, then the differences are easy to spot (symmetrical helmet on the ROTS version, scrawny Hayden Christensen frame instead of David Prowse's bodybuilder frame, etc.). If you're asking about the figures, then it really just depends on which specific figures you are talking about.Can anyone spot any noticeable differences between ROTS and ANH versions?
Between costumes? Tons. ROTS doesn't really look like Vader to me. Helmet is completely different. Chest armor is attached at the shoulders to fake the look of a large Vader. All other Vader armors had separate shoulder pieces. Tunic went over the chest armor. No silver present in the armor. Red lenses. Dirty non glossy helmet. Were the ROTS gloves the same as empire and Jedi?Can anyone spot any noticeable differences between ROTS and ANH versions?
Yeah, the ROTS Darth Vader is like the Ep1 puppet Yoda - Lucas' attempt to improve upon an iconic design that ends up being worse in every way.Between costumes? Tons.

No Vader suit was identical movie to movie. ESB is still my favorite design.
This looks like a good ANH Vader. He might replace my death star clash/commtech hybrid figure.
They had a great iconic design for ANH and ESB was the natural evolution/improvement on that design. Then they tweaked it again in Jedi just because they could. They should have stopped at empire. Same with the voice. It sounds better in empire. They made Vader too sad in Jedi.Yeah, the ROTS Darth Vader is like the Ep1 puppet Yoda - Lucas' attempt to improve upon an iconic design that ends up being worse in every way.
I love the ANH armor because it's the original, classic design, however, I agree that the ESB armor is my favorite.
Many of the differences are things that people need to train their eyes to see; but, just like differences between the ANH/ESB Stormtroopers and the ROTJ Stormtroopers, once you learn to see them you can never unsee them. So, I understand how some people would rather live in blissful ignorance and continue to be under the impression that these characters remained identical from movie to movie.
Was it silver? I thought it was more of a dark grey-black. I know what you mean though. I'm fine with them skipping that detail on a toy. That was done purely to create depth when filming. The helmet is supposed to be black.One thing I think is crucial for an accurate Vader face is the dark silver highlights. It doesn't matter how well you sculpt the helmet, if the face is solid black it will never look right. The real Vader actually had more silver on his face than he did black.
They have done red lenses....many times. It didn't look weird at all. It looked great actually. Still one of the best Vader head sculpts ever sported the red lenses.
Also no red in the lenses.
Although at this scale that's not at all to surprising, painting them would look weird, and they are not adding clear plastic for this minor detail.
Yeah, zooming in on that photo, it looks like the head was photoshopped in separated at a weird angle. Hasbro does the strangest things.That gap by his neck is odd. Hopefully it just means that someone has poor photoshop skills.
Yeah, it reminds me of the old master of the dark side mold. I'm glad they are going back to the seperate skirt. I never have Vader sit anyway.Also, just an observation-- they seem to have given his legs movement independent of the plastic skirt. That alone makes it better than many of the 5POA figures with plastic skirt pieces or robes. I like it.
