They do on eBay and stores that part out the figures like Toy Anxiety and Monkeydepot. But it's weird that it says pre-order exclusive. I guess they're noticing a drop off in pre-orders lately.
I have the new hope hot toys vader a miss as I wanted a return of the jedi vader. This looks to be closer to a jedi version so I might pick it up. Can anyone more knowledgeable in costume variations let me know what the differences to the jedi costume actually are? Cheers!
I have this funny feeling Vader will have a very minimal role in RO...
hence the 'hilt only' from HT- he might not even get to switch on his lightsaber in the movie...
Just like Luke in TFA(minimal role)...... he didn't wield any lightsaber and it's not included in HT's 1/6 figure.
That is good news.... and I understand there'll be dialogue, I just hope it's not a one liner short scene kinda thing....Well unlike Luke in TFA, we at least know Vader has SOME dialogue. It was already confirmed that James Earl Jones has recorded dialogue for him, and that to me is more exciting than Vader simply igniting his saber.

I don't yet own any 1/6 version of vader, and this looks like the best version available to date, so I am certainly looking to pick it up. Looks fantastic.on the fence with this version, he's my favorite character but I have 3 versions so far. Really need to add something to make it worth while the backdrop really isn't doing it for me.
The only other Vader I'd ever want to buy from Hot Toys or Sideshow would be the battle damaged one from The Force Unleashed game, but that window of opportunity is long gone now that the game is basically written out of continuity and forgotten by LFL and its licensees.
The ROTJ SSC Vader helmet looks bad, weirdly shaped and inaccurate. Tough better than the SSC ANH Vader, which was a spectacular fail, it is still way behind the HT, even without mods - if you mod the HT Vader a bit, no SSC Vader figure gets close. I easily passed on SSC one exactly because of that. HT ANH Vader is not perfect, but is above SSC regarding accuracy. It's low points are bad gloves and electronics - but I solved my electronics problem on my custom, so this is better than any HT or SSC now.The SW one yes but the ROJ one not a chance. Actually I am waiting for a ESB one so I hope they get all the bugs worked out on SS and Hot Toys before we see that one. And with Hot Toys with rusty wires in the clothes and other defects I can mention over and over they have certainly lost some of there original glory!
