View Full Version : Which Vader do you want from Sideshow?

From which movie do you want Darth Vader to be from? In my opinion he is most iconic to me when he fights Luke. Especially when he reveals that he is Luke's father. So let the debate begin.

Exactly right Fusion. :rock

Noo that first time Vader walks through that smoke filled corridor, the Stormies just standing aside, dropping the dead bodies they were moving. He mercilessly chokes Capt Antilles, threatens his (unknown to everyone, Lucas included) daughter. And it's a very unique look to top it all off. The one, the only, ANH Vader!

Amanaman
07-12-2008, 04:05 PM
There was no ANH in '77, it was just SW. Yeah, it seems that everything after the first film is a derivative with more backstory and convoluted plots that cheapen the simple, threatening presence that Vader carried in the first act.

Mr. Fusion

"...So, you have a twin sister. Your thoughts have betrayed her too. Obi-Wan was wise to keep her from me, now his failure is complete. If you will not turn to the Dark side, then perhaps she will."
"NEVER!"

Ah, man. Also, because for a Jedi Vader, they'd have to make a removable helmet.:joy

ANH. Poll's over. Next subject.

Mr. Fusion
07-12-2008, 04:15 PM
In A New Hope, he takes orders from Tarkin, which dulls the power of Vader. He is ruthless in Empire, and kills the Emperor in Jedi. Don't get me wrong, he is powerful in ANH. I would be glad to get him in that version, but he is more iconic to me in Jedi.

Amanaman
07-12-2008, 04:18 PM
but you've gotta admit, he started getting soft by the end of ESB and through ROTJ..

Mr. Fusion
07-12-2008, 04:24 PM
Yes, but in Empire he chokes two officers with out any sign of regret. He doesn't take orders from anyone but the Emperor in the last two.

Memnoch
07-12-2008, 04:25 PM
The removable helmet is why I DO NOT want ROTJ Vader first. Let SS start off simple with SW/ANH Vader. And besides, I think the majority already shows SW/ANH is more wanted.. while if it's from ROTS it will only sell because it is the first Vader.

Memnoch
07-12-2008, 04:27 PM
Yes, but in Empire he chokes two officers with out any sign of regret. He doesn't take orders from anyone but the Emperor in the last two.

Only reason he took orders from Tarkin was because Tarkin was CO of the Death Star and Vader was not. Vader wasn't in any military position until after the Death Star went boom. He was always the Emperors right hand man though.

Mr. Fusion

Honestly, they all look the same to me. And please nobody post anything showing all of the incredibly subtle differences. Vader is Vader. His look is always basically the same. If I were to choose I would want a ROTJ Vader so that we could have a removable helmet (or at least a swappable head.) Although if they do a removable helmet, they would have to make sure that there is some kind of snap that is loose enough to allow it to come off with little force, but tight enough to keep it on when you want it there.

DarkArtist81
07-12-2008, 09:46 PM
For me, it's Jedi or ANH all the way. Jedi is the more iconic in my mind, just because of the super shiny armor and the memories I have attached to that film.

ANH would be nice too, but I never liked the tabbards over the armor.

I've never understood this statement, especially in regards to SW/ANH Vader and all the others because the changes there are fairly noticable. I mean, I noticed when I was 9. :lol

I think Vader in ESB and ROTJ are nearly identical. The SW/ANH version on the other hand, is pretty unique.

Quite right. It's just minor tweaks to the ESB/ROTJ armor and chest box, but SW/ANH and ESB/JEDI are like night and day.

Odowankenobi
07-12-2008, 10:43 PM
Ok, let me put it this way:
The changes in his costume from film to film are nowhere near as drastic as the changes to the other characters. There is little to require that multiple versions be made. Whereas with other characters, they have a variety of costumes that are distinct looks for the characters. Vader would be Vader to me no matter what version they do. Han, or Luke, or Leia would be easily tied to a certain film or scene depending on the costume.

Memnoch
07-12-2008, 10:47 PM
Sorry but still no. ESB/ROTJ is essentially the same costume but SW/ANH is in no way the same costume. Helmet has a widows peak, the lenses are red, the gloves are ringed, the inner robe is over his shoulder armor and the shoulder armor itself has a more worn look than the shiny armor of the last two flicks. Really, just look up the two costumes and you can tell the differences. I'll be fine with two Vaders (one ESB/ROTJ and one ANH/SW, never make a ROTS SS!) but I want at least two Vaders and will be quite pissed if we only get one.

That is exactly why I got a ROTS Hurricane Vader. While ROTJ would have been my preference... I had parts that lowered the cost and that Hayden sculpt was worth it. :rock

And still a great transitional Vader figure to have. I just want SSC to do ANH or Jedi. Or better yet, make one Vader that can be changed to reflect the OT films. :rock

Ok, now you're coming off as elitist. And you just completely disregarded what I said. What I am trying to say is that Vader's basic look remains the same across all of the films. There are slight variations, but none of them, to me, are drastic enough that they would require me to buy multiple versions. None of the changes are anywhere near as drastic as say Han's vest in ANH to his jacket in ESB.

Sorry if you think it's elitist but that is how I feel. To me ANH/SW Vader to ESB/ROTJ Vader is as big a change as ANH Luke to Bespin Luke. What isn't drastic to you is HUGE to others. When you redesign a lot of little elements and get an overall different look I think it warrants two separate releases.

Hmm and as an addendum, I may be the wrong person to debate with over weather small differences matter as I went and bought a different belt for my ANH Han because the SS one was simply wrong, wrong, wrong. To me it's the small details that can completely destroy or make an iconic look. And thanks for the compliment Marc! :rock

Very well. We can agree to disagree here. I'll be happy with whatever Vader we get, and you are quite welcome to enjoy all the small details that will make him specific to whatever film he happens to be from. We can each still get enjoyment.

Star Wars, LOTR - basically anything I spend my money on I want the little intricacies to be there. Change in material color, cut, etc. doesn't really fuss me, I can look past most paint issues, but I want the unique character details to be there and be accurate. Frodo's Ring and Han's belt are great examples. That's what I want in ANH/SW Vader. I want the widows peak, I want the dull armor, I want the red lenses and ringed gloves. It was a look that was unique to the first time we ever met Darth Vader, before we knew anything about him and that's what I want on my shelf. I want the mysterious figure in helmet, who no one knows and every one fears.

Didn't Sideshow state that they were only going to make one, and he'd be bits of them all, and not one specific to any one movie?

Yes, they have set themselves up, but it's Vader, he will kick ass.

JustinLuck
07-13-2008, 12:14 AM
There are many reasons why I wouldn't want a 'universal' Vader, but the main one is the end result of a Sideshow product: the Vader PF.

I don't recall hearing SS say anything about a mixed Vader. I guess it's possible, but if they had stated such a thing I'd have guessed it would have been talked about in the forum more.

Okay, drop that thought. I'm not big on Star Wars, so things may have changed since I heard that, it was quite some time ago, so it didn't bother me at the time. It may have been discussed, but I rarely post in this section, so haven't followed what's what.

Carry on as usual.

have to admit, i really loved the ESB Vader because he was the FIRST Vader i got to see as a kid. Growing up i never got to see ANH...no TV channel in the UK would show it, just ESB and ROTJ (for a good seven years i thought those were the ONLY movies).

So to me ESB Vader is MY "Iconic" Vader...and thats what it really boils down to isnt it...what is ICONIC to the individual person, there will always be an arguement between fans as to what is the iconic Vader because everyone has they're own opinions. Its like arguing about which Milkshake is better, Banana, Chocolate or Strawberry...everyone has a different tastes.....

I personall hope for interchangeable gloves, faceplates and domes for his helmet so the fans can assemble him in the way they remember him. As for the tabbard over the armour...that'll probebly be easy to change in the long run.

I'm as big a SW fan as the next guy (as long as that next guy is a great big SW geek) but I've gotta confess I can't really tell much difference between the OT Vaders. ROTS, yes, the helmet is all wrong somehow, but the other ones, aside from minor things like which lights blink in which sequence, or whether or not his inner cape covers his shoulder armor or not, I'm at a loss. Is the difference mostly in the shape of the helmet, or what?

It would be of great interest if someone could post a collage of pictures from each film to provide an easy comparison. Or perhaps someone could furnish a link? Surely there must be 100's of websites devoted to the topic.....

LoL!...

The for a bit of education, on the RotS DvD they talk about hopw the Vader in the film is the first to have a fully simetrical *spelling?* Helmet; i.e. its a mirror image, perfect...unlike the Vader helmets of the previous, and supirior films. (yes some of us are sad enough to watch the special features on dvd's) This is why it just doesnt "feel" right...we're used to a deformed, or...more HUMAN Vader, not a hollywood perfect Vader :P...no botox here please!

ANH (or as I used to call it, "Star Wars") for me. We haven't had this version in 1/6 since Kenner made 'em in 1978(?). Oh, sure, there was the Vader vs. Kenobi 2-pack back in the '90s, but that Vader looked more ESB to me.

For me, the first Vader is still the best -- and scariest. His armor looked metal in the first movie; it looks too much like plastic in the sequels (and prequel). Also, the widow's peak and red lenses added to his badness. And from a purely aesthetic p.o.v., I much prefer his robes over the armor.

Anyway, here's an excellent site that compares the helmets in all of the films:

I think a lot has to do with the shape of the helmet, placement of the tabbards over the shoulder armor, etc. Not huge things, but once you are aware of them you tend to notice them easier. Someone wrote a lengthy post on it if you want to go digging for past Vader threads.

Ok... I'm a big Starwars Fan... but I'm far from Fanatic. Like some I didn't know the differences either.

But after looking at that link... I realized this is too Geeky for me. Dorks!!!! ;)

I AGREE! I'm not sure if your being sarcastic or not. But if you are, then I agree with your sarcastic opinion! I don't like the entire Star Wars movie/universe, I just like lightsabers and Darth Vader. That link nearly killed on of those!

Since we already have Old Ben, Bespin Luke and Jedi Luke to fight Vader, anyone from the OT is fine with me, but I do wish to see all 3 in time. :wacky

the variances, while there are quite minimal though. and with Lucasfilms preference of "definitive versions of characters" i think we're likely to only get Darth Vader : Sith Lord, and possibly ROTJ reveal Vader later on. could be wrong, but just one man's opinion. personally, i do not care, to me, Vader is Vader, as far as I care, the differences in his wardrobe from film to film is just that, he decided to polish his armor harder, or wear his robe differently, or in the case of the lights on his ipod, he was just listening to different tunes.

just a thought, would i be the only one who would want a Farce unleashed "battle damaged" vader as a con excluse or some other limited run? Picture of hasbro figure for reference. http://www.brianstoys.com/store/images/products/Star%20Wars/2008/actionfigures/carded/2008_Carded_darthvaderburned.jpg

Give...GIVE!

I took the poll to mean which one you wanted most, because he should be made from all three movies (one for each duel; if you only want one then choose). So I picked ESB, because it's the best movie ever made, but I don't care which one comes first. It would be cool to go in order, I guess.

The only reason I can see that it would be worth making ROTS Vader is if they do a full display, with operating table and droids, but that would take up a lot of places in the course of one year's offerings, and I can see no good reason to do that before we get the OT versions.

Same with a battle damaged version. It would be killer to have one, but not first, second, or third.

Agreed, same for White Darth Vader I posted a few pages back...

ALL other Vaders must be done first...

That would really be a feat if the line went so deep as to reach a figure like the white Vader and blackhole stormtroopers. With figures like Praji, it suggests that they do intend to be that prolific, and if they can do that without sacrificing second and third rung film characters, I'm all for it. I'd love to see EU jedi and sith at some point (albeit some point in the distant future).

Didn't they have shirts in the 70's that said "Darth Vader is Gay"? I think I read it in Cujo.

A Battle Damaged Vader or ROTS version with op table would be sweet but as others have said, only after we get the OT versions in our hands.
