Stuff goes deeper than many realize. Anakin came from Anakim (a race of giants/nephilim/fallen angels) George was into all sorts of stuff at the time.

Kinda cool if that saying is true.



" Until he merits" ? WTH does that even mean?

Probably until he makes up for his past sins etc. (Vader was a bad bad boy)

Oh, I see.
Still, if translated to Hebrew - Not enough letters on chestbox to complete the phrase, and some letters that are on it are not needed for the translation.

Damn you, George! :)

There's a bit of analysis on the Hebrew characters here:

http://www.theforce.net/swtc/chestplate.html



As for Sideshow's Vader...

All the discussion over the last few days has dampened my enthusiasm. Main issue is the elongated torso, which seems to stem from the shortening of the gorget armour plate, leaving a large area between the chest panel and belt.


Other issues are the price; the light-up features (which I consider to be expensive and unnecessary gimmicks); the crazy base; and the headsculpt which is either a mish-mash, or based on the actor who stood in during the helmet-removal scene in Empire? (I can't remember the name someone quoted some pages ago).

The more I see of this the less I like it. So many small nitpicks that collectively add up to a pass.

Which still doesn't mean I will actually pass, but... I'm definitely disappointed enough to whine about it before I buy it.

Something is off with the proportions and, as already mentioned, there appears to be two different prototypes shown.

I know what you mean, and so does Sideshow! It'll sell because it's Vader, and many of us want a 1/6 Vader in scale with our other SW figures. We'll buy it because we're weak!

I should pass on this, but I'm sure I'll still be pre-ordering it. With collectors like me it's no wonder these companies don't bother too much with accuracy.

Or... Sideshow will realize they merely put his gorget on back to front and hence placed the chest panel too high. An easy fix! :monkey1

What's with the crinkly jumpsuit? It stands out like a sore thumb. I don't see ESB Vader there at all. Guess my Medi will remain as my definitive version of Vader a while longer possibly....

Probably just a symptom of Sideshow's P.O.S. Prometheus body. I'm sure most people who PO this are going to swap him over to a new body like the KP-02 which will fill out the crinkly licorice pants.

@Hologram.....Since we have no idea how many of the exclusive version was made, I don't want to take any chances with it selling out. It probably won't, but believe me, most of the ones whining on here will order it anyway. :lol

If you are thinking that it will be sold out within 3 hours like the HT BD Mark VII, the answer is No.

And the main grip I have with that figure is the lack of articulation on the knees BECAUSE of the tight outfit so really, I'm happy they're giving this guy some breathing room instead of limiting us for the sake of giving him some speedos for the hardcore fanboys.

This is by far the perfect outfit but as far the baggy pants goes, people should at least understand why they're doing it instead of just bashing it for what it is. Like Evilface said, go to the DX12 forums and look at the hoard of pictures people have posted and it's not "fun". None of the pictures really scream a nice pose because every single one of them has him with straight legs.

I understand, I just expect him to look semi-accurate, not like his mom sent him out into the galaxy saying "you'll grow into them".

Sorry, couple of corrections here. Nephilim are not fallen angels, they are the offspring produced when regular angels mated with human females.

Genesis 6:4
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

הַנְּפִלִים
This is the Hebrew word for Nephilim, which is Pronounced "Nephilim" :lol

Anakin was not taken from Anakim, Anakin means without a father.
The Anakim were a race of giants seen in Joshua 11 - 15 and then not after. No relation to the Nephilim.

The price and non-essential EX may keep it from selling out right away.

It's going to be one those order it at your leisure things cause he will be around for a while.

True, except they haven't done a Star Wars fig in a while that will have as much demand for the exclusive edition as this will... including Boba Fett. Although I don't doubt this EE will be available longer than its ANH counterpart from a few years ago.

Looks cheap to me. http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=JAK12490&mode=retail

Actually it looks alright:

Here it is compared with reds vader...the reds is comprised of more separate parts and is all vinyl...the jakks has an abs helmet

http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/4379/imagepnq.jpg

The top right reds pics were from bill mcbride I believe ...
The top left and bottom right are the new jakks vader helmets...
The middle pic is a reds ver 1...

That new helmet is impressive the shape is correct, though symmetrical EP 3 version...

There was a later prototype with a lightsaber in hand and a "working" electronic chest button and corrected codpiece, but the final piece actually looks great!

It can be restitched further back on the cape actually, but it does make him look like a 70s gangster...:D

And it is cheap...40-45 bucks. Not too bad...it can be customized with more detail...the mask is from an original digital file...at leather parts etc could look better than a premium format...if done right

Just wish they produced this version, but I suspect the price point would've been higher..:

http://img839.imageshack.us/img839/9757/imagewwd.jpg

Difference is removable blade for lightsaber, and more ot looking codpiece...and effects button on chest ...? for what I never found out...

Also the prototype shown here on bottom demonstrates that it's an ot type helmet, not the rots-like scan in the final product...but it still looks good...

I'm sure someone will correct me and give exact measurements, but I think he's probably around 15 inches tall. He's taller than the Hot Toy Predators.

Ahem....


ANH Vader was 14 1/4 inches.

Most of the height mods took him down to 13.5. :yess:

13.5" = 6'9" = 6'6" David Prowse plus 3" of boots and helmet. Seems reasonable. SW "Official" height for Vader however is only a hair over 6'6" (2.02 meters)

Just to clear a few things up....


The lightsaber does NOT light-up
The chest box, belt, stand, and meditation chamber themed display stand (that hold an additional helmet dome and facemask) WILL have light-up features

Oh well if doesnt light up. Asked about backdrop and sideshow rep Jen said no backdrop. As for this coming out in january ,you dont need the force to know Vader will be late or have flight delays.

Hmmm, Well I am hoping that Leroy & Marc are wrong! A non light up saber these days is just unacceptable!!

I disagree. the Light up one that came with Obi-wan? THAT was unacceptable. It looked REALLLY bad when it was on.

Alex, Thankyou.

also, the blade on vader's saber.... is it thin like the older sabers? or FAT like Obi's was?

Please be thin

that's the way i read it...............:pray:

I don't think so.

It's one assembled helmet (like the ANH), one helmet in pieces for the display stand and the Anakin sculpt.

Also I don't think the assembled pieces can be reassembled. For display only.

Me too my man!

This will be my first 1/6 Vader so I'm stoked.

Enjoy the 3-day weekend FLOSI "Go A's!" :1-1:

I'm a Giants fan, Jimmie!! :mad:

You know, the first one needed some mods but it's still one of my VERY favorite figures. You're gonna love this one. :lecture

Have a good weekend, bro! I'm going to Tahoe with a bunch of buddies. :rock :duff

The helmet is not a headsculpt though.

Edit: Well it does say "Head with helmet and mask". So what do I know? Maybe it can disassemble enough to show an ESB styled reveal? :dunno

I'm wondering if this means you could display the mask in that little pedestal and have the Vader figure masked at the same time then. That'd be cool.
