Gonna stick with 3 3/4".   But I will cherry pick a few 6 inchers now and then....
That may prove difficult if figs are super cool? & if we actually see them all?
I just wonder how Hasbro is going to produce & distribute them...any different this time?

1 cool figure and 11 Jar Jars per case.

Saw these at wally world. I like the new black packaging but as I have said many, many, many times before.
How many Vaders and Lukes and Yodas and all the other figures do I need to own?
None of these will be in my check out aisle.
Light side, dark side, light side, dark side, light side, dark side. So many choices, so little time.

Well. With the 6" Black series doing so well. Hasbro has won again.
I remember reading posts on here about how people were not going to pay $20 a figure and how Hasbro is just squeezing us collectors for more money. Some said they would stick to 3 3/4 figures.
Now we all are running around trying to find these things at $20 a pop! Me included.
People paying high dollar for the SDCC Boba Fett.
Well done Hasbro. I guess you do still have it in you and know what collectors want.

They are too expensive at regular price, I can't imagine paying scalper prices. I m buying the 1st wave and we'll see from there. Still need to find Maul.

so, how can Hasbro make a 31" tall Vader to sell at WalMart for $30, but the 6" figure costs $20....there is a price disparity there

Jakks Pacific makes the 31 inch Vader, are they part of Hasbro? I do like the BIG Vader.. he needs some troopers same size..

Got back from Dragon Con.
Paid $30 for Sandtrooper. Some vendors had the wave for as much as $40
$225 for the Boba Fett SDCC exclusive was the going price.

Was disappointed in the Maul. Looks pretty cool, but they should have given  him a cloth cape instead of a plastic one.

I saw them up close today for the first time. I'm with you Slobba. They are cool but just not for me. Maul looks really cool in the larger scale.

I wish I could have gotten you a Sandie for $20? They are everywhere here...we must stop the scalpers...
>:( >:
Wish I knew, but could use another one if you find any  ;)

He would look alot better if he had a cloth cape instead of a plastic one.

Jakks Pacific makes the 31 inch Vader, are they part of Hasbro? I do like the BIG Vader.. he needs some troopers same size..

For $30.00 each I would buy all of them if they look as good as the Vader.
The only problems I see with Mr. V are these.
They have the light saber attatched to his belt upside down.
I would have liked to see the saber be detatchable.
The inner cape is plastic from the shoulders to his belt then the cloth begins. The cape should be completely made of cloth.
The cod piece is overly large for the size of the figure. It's very noticeable. (maybe they used ron jeremy as a model)
His outer cape doesn't have the chain and hook that attatches to his chest armor.
Lastly I would liked to have seen his right hand be able to hold the light saber.

Other than these minor imperfections I think Jakks did a very good job of putting this figure togethor.

Fox old boy. I want you to know that I peeked and I'm sorry to say Vader is not wearing the pink panties you were hoping for. ;D
