What made you think the Darth Vader thread was the right place for questions about General Grievous?

You're right, it was the wrong place. I asked the same question in the right thread and got messed with. It took hours for someone to come in there and set me straight. I waited so long, that I didn't think I was going to get an anwser. So... I came to thread that was hopping with posts. That was my bad, I'm too impatient I guess. It's a shortcoming I'll have to work on.

Now, as for my comment above. Threre's history between myself and they guy. He doesn't like me and his comment had malice behind it, trust me. He was being a smartass and acting rude when I was playing around with the Three Wisemen. It's a troll move and it's just not needed. His behavior reminds me of someone else on these boards.

I guess this is really more of an ROTJ version since I am familiar with lightsaber and that saber there is a Graflex not an MPP like in ANH and ESB.

devilof76
06-17-2012, 11:45 AM
That's definitely the ROTJ hilt, but assuming that it only comes with that one is like assuming we're only getting a mask, a dome, a wrist and a hand.

The lightsaber is painted so that means it is one of the first things completed. If it was gonna come with two sabers, they would have show two sabers.

Basically all signs point to a ROTJ Vader.

Then again, maybe SS was hoping no one will noticed that the sabers from ROTJ and ESB are different.

It was aid that majority of SW fans recognizes a character saber by their colour mainly and not so much on the hilt.

The point of the picture is obviously to show what they have in store for us in this release.

Hell, the chopped hand really pushes this figure towards ROTJ version.

In fact it has been speculated many pages back that everything points to an ROTJ version.

Bare in mind that Sideshow did go as far as to do separate lightsabers for the Farmboy luke and for the Bespin luke even though allot of people wouldn't have noticed the difference could be that Vader's TESB hilt just isn't shown.

To be fair, this is the Darth Vader thread like he had originally said. It's nothing to get upset about. The best thing to do would be to go to the Grievous thread and ask your question there.

Yikes! Way to win friends and influence people...

Kinda like Vader - he was a real "people person", too! Which brings us back to the topic of the thread. Any thoughts on what this bad boy might retail for? Part of me would love to get two, one for an Empire diorama, one for Jedi, but the $$$cost$$$ will likely rule that out.

I've also been thinking about the meditation chamber - would look cool, but they would have to cheat the dimensions to make it manageable, it would be expensive, and my space for such dioramas is finite. It would be a "pass" for me. I'm leaning the same way on an Executor bridge diorama for Vader and the bounty hunters, unless they have something incredibly clever in mind. I think the best environment for an Empire Vader would be a partial Carbonite chamber, the most visually arresting of the three (plus a great opportunity for the iconic duel between HT Luke and SSC Vader!) For Jedi Vader, the best display option would be a window to go with Emp's throne...would love to have SSC Vader and possible future HT Jedi Luke crossing sabers in front of the Emperor!!!

Sounds about right but that all comes down to a pretty standard load out if there is a whole lot to this figure, even more than they have shown the sky is the limit cause really this is a sellers market and they wont lose out on any vader.

TECHNICALLY, that's not 100% accurate.
Vader used an MPP-based saber in all three films for the hero prop.
The Graflex version that you're referring to was mostly for stunts.

I have to agree the thought that ROTJ Vader is all we are getting is incorrect I have seen both ESB and ROTJ Vader parts and pieces teased and shown. So if my hopes are real enough a ESB/ROTJ Vader could be peaking the horizon soon which would be super cool instead of 2 figures we get 1 that can be both which is better then 2 reveals in my book.

The RotJ cuts through the upper tusk tube and runs along the top of the bottom one, splitting them and leaving one on the upper face and one on the neck piece, whereas the ESB is cut above the upper tusk tube, leaving both tubes down on the bottom neck piece.

Red line shows the ESB cut and the green line show the RotJ cut.

That would be quite cool if Sideshow were to have 2 different helmets for the figure. So would that mean the neck piece would also have to be different?

If so it might be fun to have a little 1/6 display for the 2nd helmet when its not in use.

Also, I wonder if the mask will be hollow with internal details... or if it will be a solid chunk? I know the sculpt won't fit inside the mask, but I do hope there is at least the option to have the scarred back of his head visible if you take off the dome.

devilof76
06-19-2012, 07:34 AM
Yes to all of that.

I'm guessing that if they have a separate ESB head, you'll be able to remove the dome and expose the back of his head. For the ROTJ head, I'm sure the whole Shaw portrait will be separate.

If they can get details on the insides like the Han/Luke stormie helmets, they are reaching epic levels with this figure and I think the $200 barrier is toast.


Unfortunately, Too Much Garlic's diagram is no longer linked. But this new photo shows what he describes as the ESB reveal.

Looks like he fixed it.

Yeah, I'm thinking that as well... but this might also be a figure where Sideshow dumps a lot into in and intentionally keeps the cost a bit lower in order to bring new people in and/or attract collectors how dropped out of the line.

When Jedi Luke came out he seemed pretty cheap considering how much stuff he came with. But he hooked a lot of collectors in.

That's not so bad. I'm keeping my Obi-wan ghetto so he'll be right there with Luke. ESB will be center stage, so it will all balance out.

The real trick will be waiting for a DX Obi-wan after we get a DX Jedi Luke (or vice versa).

The armored body (like the hobbit) was developed with HT, and for Vader they had a larger version of it... that is why the ANH (if I recall correctly) has the HT logo on the bottom of the box.

In looking at teaser and PO images of the clones none of them have a HT logo, but the boxes all do because of the bodies.

And I admit I could be wrong about Vader having the HT logo on the box, but his body is basically an upscaled version of the Amored one which was developed with HT. So maybe they did the upscaling on their own so no credit need be given to HT, but its still the same pedigree.

Well I asked Sideshow on facebook for (another) definitive answer to this. Only thing is, with the clone they took credit on the first few. It may have been an agreement (as far as sales residuals) that after X number of clones they would cease to get a cut.

Per Vader, neither HT's company name nor logo has EVER been associated with it. Not that ANH version nor the ESB/ROTJ version. Anything else on anyone's part to implicate that HT had anything to do with Vader's development is pure speculation. You can't get out from under that.

Well now, you can choose to see the discussion how you wanted... but your initial post was that no HT Logos on anything meant no involvement from HT... which we now know is not always true.

I just assumed the same body would be used, but I was wrong... however I was not wrong about my assertion that HT was involved in the making of the first Vader even if in a very limited roll... ie the base body.

In response to your previous posts given what we now know:


:slap:thud::cuckoo:

Which as we know doesn't mean a lot, since you so expertly pointed out that the ANH does not either... yet Sideshow agrees HT did collaborate on the body.

So work done, credit not given (for whatever reason)


The Vader body was not developed by HT and I doubt that Vader will use a clone body so...... :dunno

Side note: anyone see on the news how the kid who played Vader in this commercial just had open heart surgery? He seems to be recovering just fine, poor l'il guy...

I think he had been having multiple surgeries and health problems before the commercial. I think that's part of the reason why he was in it. I read somewhere that this should be the last surgery he has to have and then he should be fine. Hopefully so.

The RotJ cuts through the upper tusk tube and runs along the top of the bottom one, splitting them and leaving one on the upper face and one on the neck piece, whereas the ESB is cut above the upper tusk tube, leaving both tubes down on the bottom neck piece.

Red line shows the ESB cut and the green line show the RotJ cut.

It was discussed that the height size will be corrected. But would it be the true type body? I'm sorry if this has been discussed before.

What I'm trying to say is if the new TESB/ROTJ Vader body is more bulkier and/or more articulate then I might do a head/glove swap w/ANH Vader.

Just to see how it looks.....:monkey3

I'm definitely getting this Vader, there is no way I can pass on him. I would be tempted to get two, but then I would be breaking my rule about sticking to "mostly" ESB stuff. It's just the most comprehensive movie for me.

Months? Try over a year; the news on this guy was dropped before last years SDCC (along with hints of Snowies and e-webb cannon). While I can't wait to see these guys finally come to light, I'd be more enthused if they actually put the Grievous that was shown at last year's SDCC up for pre-order before this year's ComicCon is over - lest I fear it will be a year+ before we actually get to order Vader... :impatient:

The silver (gunmetal) on Vaders face are painted highlights, so that the facets stand out- else- he'll just appear as a black blob...it's very characteristic of his expression to, so it's necessary with any reproduction of Vader...they are in all OT films -- the ROTS Vader is ALL black - clearer pic, plus symmetry was important to show his machine-like persona now...loss of humanity
