Because it looks nothing like Shaw.

I can't argue with that. Lame stand, small chest box and useless lights are kind of annoying. Plus the sculpt will never see the light of day on my shelf. Here's hoping they tweak it a bit before the final release. Hey at least I didn't cry about the price, right?

I'd rather pay $400 for a diecast Robocop that talks then $250 for a sub-par Vader that will require an instant $60 body upgrade out-of-the-box, a Hasbro dome swap, an idealized Anakin portrait that looks nothing like any of the actors that have played him and other tweaks to make look accurate. :huh

Oh, Robocop is ordered. I love HT and SSC but like others have said, they want HT prices they better deliver HT quality. But I'm sure they'll fall short.

You guys should really (REALLY) go rent Close Encounters of the Third Kind. It's in my top 5 of favorite movies. Absolutely one of Spielbeg's best, smartest, awe-inspiring movies he's ever done, and definitely better than most of his later films. And don't let the groovy 70s fashion or any other superficial stuff get in the way. The Douglas Trumbull effects are magical, and John Williams's score is phenomenal.
Dude! :(

That's one of the best things about the film - the era it was made in!!! :rock

The 70s is my absolute fave decade from the 20th century. :cool:

Yep, this is how I feel. RoboCop doesn't even compete for me in comparison to Star Wars but I just cannot see what my $250.00 is buying with this figure. Robo and ED-209, on the other hand, look magnificent, so have become must-buys. Sure hope SSC gets their stuff together with this release but have a feeling it's not going to happen.

If not, I already have the Hasbro talking Vader, so I can use the helmet if needed. I think people are freaking out about the new Vader body too soon; Remember the figure is 13.5" tall, so it will also be more bulky overall than the average 12" SS figure. If the head sculpt is devoid of true nostalgic 'Anakin appeal', the Hasbro Anakin head sculpt is surprisingly pretty damned good. With a skilled repaint and the removal of the vinyl 'chin tubes', it would replace the SS head nicely.
In my own case, I won't have to spend an extra dime for the upgrades, so I PO'd Robo & Ed both.

If there is a demand here, I could easily make a mold of this head (after removing the chin tubes, and adding some accurate surface detail in some areas) and recast it in white resin to sell.http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/2936/darthhasbro.jpg

Sad that Hasbro got more right on their $50 Vader than Sideshow can on a $250 Vader. The Prometheus body is the worst body on the market. Even at 14" it doesn't have Dave Prowse's build. Look how baggy that licorice suit looks on the SSC figure. You're gonna want to port him over to a KP-02, TTM-20 or another 3rd party muscle body right off the bat. That's inexcusable for a $250 figure.

That's inexcusable for a $250 figure.I understand the indignation, but you're seriously overestimating the Hasbro version. The Hasbro Vader suit is a mess. The chest box is soft vinyl and warps against the curvature of the body. The hands are like huge catcher's mitts. the codpiece is thin and flimsy, and WAY too shiny- and the boots have a matte finish when they SHOULD be shiny. The belt is out of scale and looks like... well, vinyl. Out of the box, the helmet sat MUCH too high upon the head, so I had to fix that. Also, the bottom flat line of the 'mouth triangle' jutted out way too far, reaching to the same point of protrusion as the two silver 'tusks', and I had to fix that too. The upper arm muscles were so thick, the arm movement was practically zero, so I had to thin them down.
SS is improving gradually, but their quality hasn't yet risen to justify a HT price point. I'm buying this figure, because I can make it much better. I just wish SS would pay me to do it...

Yeah im thinking hard as to wether or not i really want this that bad.
Im a SW fan but i dont have every single thing sw i just buy the ones i like.
I have never owned anything DV before and i dont know if this will be a justifiable 250.
250 is high even by HT standards and you usually get something premo for that much.
What is SS charging the extra 100 for the lighted stand!

Dude I was talking about the Shaw head. Sure, the paint is horrible but could be repainted and it looks better than Sideshow's non-descript Anakin. Plus the Hasbro dome is superior. Everything else is garbage.

You guys have to stop buying these figures if you ever want Sideshow to change. Everyone's complaining but Sideshow will still sell every single one they make, so the complaints are meaningless. They want Hot Toys prices now, but have still failed to listen to any of the issues from the first Vader, besides the height. They dont care what we say, they care what we buy.

I know lots of guys on here like to add to and mod figures etc, but for figures in this price range, it's outrageous.

One problem collectors have to deal with is the fact that the product photographs are often deceptive, or cloaked in 'mood lighting' like this Vader is. It's hard to tell the actual quality of the finished item until it's literally in your hands.

Incidentally I will NEVER sell my Chris Reeve Superman; That was the first movie I went to go see by myself when it came out, at age 13. I loved the film, and I still do, and the figure is perfectly executed in every way. (Hot Toys was honest enough to provide brightly lit, accurate photographs ahead of time, so I knew what I was getting.)

Hasbro did have a few good headsculpts... and the droids and aliens were decent. Biggest problem was everything had very odd proportions. I did a custom of Anakin Skywalker using their "masterpiece" (:rolleyes2) figure. Aside from the sculpt being too large it still ended up making for a good looking figure IMO.

That's actually not a bad base head really.. :)

It's going to be interesting to see how far folks will take the mods on this upcoming Vader - the muscle body swap out for starters. Being that this one seems to be a little more in scale compared to the last one, the suit won't need as much chopping & cropping as the previous ANH version perhaps. :lol

I've always wondered why they cast Sebasian Shaw as Anakin in ROTJ. Yeah, he gives a good performance when he's dying, but why didn't they cast someone a bit more...good looking? There were plenty of actors, known and unknown, who were good looking and around 50/60 at the time who could have pulled it off. I know the point was to have Vader look all pale, burned and gross when the helmet comes off, but still...an actor who wasn't overweight and had a stronger jaw and more defined cheekbones would have been a better choice. And it would have made for a much cooler image when he was in ghost form. I wanted the man in the suit to look like Luke Skywalker's dad...not "just anybody's dad," which is what Shaw looked like. Hardly a grizzled, Jedi warrior and Clone Wars vet.

VintijDroidGutzz
06-04-2013, 08:24 AM
Ehh.. it's relative.

I loved Sebastian Shaw in the film - he conveyed the frailty of an old Anakin being supported by essentially an iron lung of sorts, trying to reach out to his son; his eyes & countenance showed that well IMO.

I get your point, but I don't think those factors were necessary in the end.

I agree. I am never happy with most figures when at hand, but thats cause they looked so awesome in pics (usually). While i ordered this i am regretting it and thinking of cancelling the preorder albeit the NRD. From the beginning the proportions did not seem right or as right to me. Glad i am not the only one who thinks so but at the same time unhappy that i pulled a trigger on this one way too early. Last option would be to sell on ebay however the challenge would be if another better vader pops up in the meantime. Then this 250 drops like crazy. Still thinking....

I don't see another Vader coming out from anyone for quite some time.

I'll qualify that by saying I don't think Anakin with glowing eyes and a tear rolling down his cheek is a Vader in my book. :lol

Another 1/6 Vader??? From where??? Unless somebody builds a time machine to transport to 2020 to buy that HT Vader everybody's talking about I wouldn't worry about another 1/6 Vader appearing out of nowhere. :lol

I don't like the baggy pants but I ordered because I don't think we will be getting another one anytime soon.

While nice...this Vader is far from accurate :(


I know they have tried to make a more accurate ROTJ Vader for the "Deluxe" figure but as with the ANH Vader they sadly missed the mark.


Now yes, I know...I'm the default mouthpiece for Hurricane in the Vaderville thread but I thought I'd put up this ESB Vader for you all to see;

http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa238/stevejw/photo.jpg (http://s197.photobucket.com/user/stevejw/media/photo.jpg.html)

compared with the Deluxe SSC ROTJ Vader;

Maybe when they spin over to do a ESB they'll hit the nail on the head...

I'll probably get flamed for this but...

While I do recognize the craftsmanship and attention to detail, Hurricane's Vaders just look a bit odd to me.

There's something about the proportions that just looks off.
But that's probably just me.

Still amazing custom pieces.

I remember The Ultimate Villain Vader it was totally inaccurate, but for 2005 standards, it wasn't bad. Just like the Hasbro Jango Fett. That's still not too bad to this day. Are any of these Sideshow or Hot Toys quality? Absolutely not, but they still have their merits here and there.

I could never get down with the modern 12" figures from Kenner and then Hasbro. Even before I knew about Medicom and Dragon (the big names early on) I could just never bring myself to buy them. I must have held the first Vader in my hands a dozen times trying to convince myself to buy it, but never did.

I did however buy the first Han Solo... it's pretty terrible, but for some reason it looked a bit better than the other figures to my eye. That's the only 12" I bought from those offerings, although later I've picked up a few of the non-human sculpted figures for custom projects.

06-05-2013, 01:08 PM
Been a long while but I still watch this thread , the custom Vader was for a gentleman called Vader Al , in his words , he hasn't positioned the head down fully on its stub , so it's quarter of an inch too high and the chest box was out of position , whether this accounts for the visual 'offness' I cannot say . I understand any updates will be dealt with by Dr. Feelgood in the art section. Personally I'm on the fence about the new Vader from Sideshow , as I hear from G that some of the ANH ones have been tinkered with by owners and look very good.

Ehh.. it's relative.

I loved Sebastian Shaw in the film - he conveyed the frailty of an old Anakin being supported by essentially an iron lung of sorts, trying to reach out to his son; his eyes & countenance showed that well IMO.

I get your point, but I don't think those factors were necessary in the end.

So awhile back I sent a question to Sideshow about what pictures were representative of the Vader we could expect... mainly pointing out the bodysuit differences.

I've gotten two responses, both ignoring that question (even though it's clearly stated both times) and telling me about the 2 heads it comes with... I've given it a 3rd try, but I have a feeling I'm just getting some kind of form response and CS is not bothering to read my question :lol

So anybodies guess what the final figure will actually look like.

Not to mention they are now around HT prices on their releases, but the quality has still not matched them.

Now nearing 5 years later I am not the biggest fan of them. My favorite sideshow pieces are the ANH Vader, Stormtrooper, and Boba Fett. To this day all of those look spectacular in the detolf.

I never order figs with human likenesses made by Sideshow. Even current figs are always off on the sculpt and the paint apps make them look toyish. They are no where near the same league as HT in that area. They do much better on non human figures.

Of course you did pull one of the nicest Joes, but I love the heads SSC has been putting out and even though their paint apps may be weak at times, we've had tons of customizers show the SSC heads can go from great to amazing with a paintjob. I actually like some SSC heads > HT. Take for instance the current GI Joe RoadRock figure that HT has been showing pics on, its pores are so freaking huge it looks like a lovechild between Dwayne Johnson and Edward James Olmos.

IT really does.

especialy they are now painteing their heads using the same method that hot toys does, and we're now getting heads that have a similar textured skin effect like HT has been doing for a while now.

are they completely on-par?
No. But it's a gap that's rapidly closing.

on a scale of 1-10, with 9 being the average HT sculpt, 10 being their DX jack joker and Jack sparrow and a 1 being hasbro...

I'd say that sideshow currently fluxes between a 7 and an 8.

Zartan, Evil Duke, Falcon, Padawan Kenobi, and RocknRoll have all been AMAZING sculpts.
Even though we've only seen prototypes, Bludd and Baroness look to be just as good as well

I don't collect the Sideshow's Joe line but that pic you posted does look good. I think you could be right about the the paint apps pulling the SS sculpts down. It's good to hear they are improving with every release. Now if they would just scrap the Prometheus body and develop a better one, they might give a HT a real run for their money.

The Padwan Kenobi should have been a home run... bur some minor issues added up to being a kind of fugly figure.

I believe howard chen from HT indicated in a recent interview that entire star wars line up and also back to the future is in works (posted today on hot toys fan page). Like me many others have been unhappy with this figure or at least of what we are seeing right now and my basic point was just that. I feel this is long away and ss can still do a lot to improvise this figure for it to be more impactful.
Bottom line... We can say what we want but this is a 250 dollar figure and does not measure up - at least what we see in prototype pics.

How does that work, anyway?

Invictus Sol
06-08-2013, 06:48 AM
Well, I'm judging it by the lack of any interesting reveals/pre-orders for months and months on end (and possibly no SDCC exclusive is another sign). Maybe I'm just misremembering, since when I first got into the line, I had to catch-up on a lot of stuff. Maybe the pace back then felt fast when really it wasn't. But it seems pretty slow for a long while now and what releases there are seem predictable.

Can't see hasbro pulling Sscs licence. No way will ht produce enough figures for the new trilogy to pay for it. Asian licence maybe instead of medicom but not American etc

Remember even with iron man etc they are the mass market 12 inch versions - which my kids love but jeez they're poor quality.

Ssc may have faults but if ht had this licence from day one we would still only have about six figures. Probably five Lukes.

SSC does clones because they make money, the same way HT does Iron Man over and over and over....etc. The sub-license will go to whoever can pay the most dollars when it expires. And that will mean prices will go up to pay that new higher license fee. Don't hope for a change in license unless your willing/able to pay a lot more for your figures.

If the quality is on par with HT, I'd be fine paying a higher price. The thing with the clones bringing in money is it doesn't seem to result in SSC releasing anything imaginative or unexpected (and while Iron Man has many iterations, they're not all just repaints... a lot easier to see where the money's going, even if I'm fatgued with the line). Kinda just waiting now to see how SDCC goes.

Agreed. And while iron man is a cash cow for them its clearly a no brainer on what quality work they can do and what value they can provide even if they charge a slight premium. The robocop series is a classic example that is mindblowing, some of the dx series stuff has been great too, even if i go a bit back in time... Whiplash and many others have delivered value for money. Were there issues? surely - but worth the money so far. I grew up watching star wars, and am sure many others here did too, and hence a bit more critical when it comes to star wars and in specific to vader... And why not! ..... SDCC will decide for me if i will hold the preorder or let go... With over 120 six scale figures so far bought, traded its time to be selective rather than a shelf feeder :(

Are u buying from sstoys or some place else? at that price cant complain at all. The only thing i dont like abt sideshow / ss toys / US is they dont give rewards for the remainder money e.g £ 100 in ur case. I prefer to buy smaller figures or bodies ilo actual 1/6 figures or statues as that enables me to gain the 5 pct on big purchases... Also i feel they (sstoy) have to do the 5 pct rewards as they charge tax unlike ebay or some other sellers and also that allows smaller resellers to have a market as the price point is maintained steady and higher!

I love the style of the vintage figures, but they were made and sold as toys. The newer ones tried to make them more "collectible" and in that failed. They were still good toys, but look like turds :lol

Hasbro has been time tested with SW... they've done a pretty impressive job of keeping the toys stocked in stores even though the last movie came out close nearly a decade ago. I have a feeling the license will stay with them for the long haul.

Same with Sideshow, while not every figure has been a home run, they've sold well and continue to be a popular series. I honestly don't think HT has much interest in pursuing the license on their own... if they did I think they'd have had more than 1 release (an not a single WIP image) since they first announced the DX07.

Khev
06-13-2013, 08:18 AM
I have yet to preorder this and with my ESB focus of SW figures including nothing more than HT Luke, SSC Yoda, and SSC Fett, ESB Vader would seemingly be a no-brainer but when I think about it I just feel I "need" to get him to round out the line-up. He's Darth Vader after all. But for the price I just don't pour over the pics marveling at the awesomeness of the figure like I've done for days now with the new Robocop and ED-209.

The same thing happened when ANH Vader was up and I ended up passing on him. I really have been shying away from forking over the cash for "pretty good" figures "just because." I end up having holes in my collection but I prefer to gush over the figures I have, not spend hundreds on placeholder figures because its still technically the "best" on the market.

I'd love a decent Bespin Han but that sure as hell doesn't mean I'm going to go hunt down SSC's old monstrosity just because its the "best." :lol

galactiboy
06-13-2013, 08:25 AM
I can understand that... Sideshow should have blown this release out of the water (and maybe they still will) but this has just been one confusing set of photos after another and we have a pre-order where I don't think there's a single image of the lights actually working :huh

As for Han, I highly reccomend buying the SSC figure, swapping out the body and boots and getting the Mando head. You'll probably drop $150 or so on the project, but you'll end up with one hell of a great looking figure :lecture

pixletwin
06-13-2013, 08:27 AM

I agree, it doesn't look like Shaw, nor Hayden. IMHO it doesn't even look like a combo of both. You hate to say it, but both Hasbro reveal sculpts were pretty spot on, the Shaw one and the Crispy Anakin one.

I don't blame Sideshow though, I'm sure it's all Lucasfilm. Thats probably what Anakin is "supposed" to look like now. I mean look at any Vader promo that you see now,is the ROTS Vader costume.

well they basically got Sub contracted by Sideshow to do it, in the latest interview with osr he states that their still working on doing more. Problem is Sideshow is being lent the rights from hasbro so its probably a whole lot of paper work and BS to get it done

I thought the same thing when some of the pics of the ANH Vader came out. I foresaw many comments about "Dwarf Vader" in the ANH Vader thread's future...

Hadn't noticed that... wonder if they're now planning a ESB as well, or if they realized a mash-up wasn't a good idea.

They do exclusives based on demand now, rather than a set number. They will eventually set an ES, but it won't be for awhile in order to get as many orders as possible.

But rest assured this one (like the ANH) will eventually sell out and will go up in value. Even if it is flawed, it's still Vader and the one figure people will want above others.

Whaat?!? Really?!?

*Goes to check Sideshow website*

Well would you look at that! I wonder if that means we'll eventually get an ESB Vader!

The pre-order e-mail notice had the ROTJ 30th Anniversary logo on the picture and I believe said that on the product page when the pre-orders opened, not really anything new there.

Post by me over a month ago. :panic::panic::panic:



....but stern is more generlizable given this is intended to serve both ESB and ROTJ.

Aside from that I agree the rest of the reveal, teases and final pics are a mess.


It is?

[B]I know that was SSC's intentions originally, but it is listed now as - very specifically - Return of the Jedi Vader.

Oh. Sorry 'bout that. I'll go troll back through the hundreds of posts until I find that info since I didn't read every post in this thread.

On second thought, nah, I won't. :)

Nice avatar, BTW. My friends have been telling me to check out Doctor Who for years and I just got An Unearthly Child from Netflix!

I recommend it. But be prepared. It is slow paced, low budget, and black and white. But as long as that doesn't bother you it's a fun beginning to a great show.

You got'd me on ignore? I posted it almost two months ago. :cool:


I just noticed that he has the ROTJ saber (even though someone already said it). It says Return of the Jedi on the order page too.

Doesn't seem as hybrid anymore. I wonder if that means we'll still get a straight up ESB Vader.

I wonder what other ROTJ stuff we'll see this year. It would be a perfect time to get out a ROTJ Fett but with the white proto I doubt that will happen.

But, I like a lot of people that no one likes. Like pixletwin. And King Darkness. I am not exactly the high watermark when it come to judging character.

No. It's because you moved to China and Sideshow's paint didn't get any better.
