Has anyone heard anything about the possible release date for the SS Vader 1:4 statue? We are now in the 4th quarter(which spans Oct-Dec) and I'm just wondering which month will finally see the release of this figure.

Last communication I received from SS is that at least in the next 30 days, there is no mention of the Vader showing up in their warehouse. So if there is nothing in the late October newsletter, I don't anticipate this piece being out until Dec or Jan at the earliest. I know the Obi-Wan was pushed out to Q1 2006 already.

Isn't the Han statue next to be released? I think we have to wait until that's released before we see Vader.

Thanks for the info, Jorus, even though it's not what I really wanted to hear. I was hoping the statue would be released sooner rather than later, but now I guess I should just be happy if it's out by X-Mas.

Oh well, I've waited this long, I suppose I can wait another 6 months or so.


In all seriousness, I have a good feeling this guy will be worth whatever wait we have to "suffer" through.

I believe so, anyone heard anything else about the Han?

Later on is better for me as well. I just lost my job on Monday and now I am gonna have to make drastic cuts in my collecting habits. I already cancelled the Han I had on pre-order.

we are now in the 4th quarter with 15 seconds on the clock, the defence has just called a time out for the third time and the kicker is starting to get anxious. With the score 14 - 12, this will be the last play of the game and the last chance to beat their rivals.

Sorry, I could'nt resist, cant believe no one else had not done this yet.

Anyways, back on topic, this stinks, you should contact SS by phone and get answers!!! If I remember correctly, they are pretty good about getting answers.

I guess we should all know by now that delays are inevitable when it comes to these things. Has Master Replicas, Gentle Giant, Sideshow, etc. ever actually hit an earlier announced release date? I don't think so.

I'll wait. It just means that they are making it extra jaw dropping good for us!

Well, it's not like they've missed the target date or anything. I was just hoping it would be earlier in the 4th quarter(like this month) as opposed to November or even December, but I have a feeling it will be LATE 4th qtr. before we see this statue.
