I picked up the "Emperor's Wrath" SW Black 6" Darth Vader figure exclusive from Walgreens today...

He's pretty doggone sweet...

he does come with a right hand and a light saber...but he's is too cool THIS way for that...  Razz

Here's a close up shot of the helmet...its translucent enough to see the chin and faceplate bits over the scarred head...its just really hard for me to capture it in a picture very well...

the fact that this movie has no false preconceptions (ie. Han, Luke & Leia), there's a pretty good chance that it'll be pretty good. Even with Forest Whitaker ( Sad )...

I'll be curious to see if a CG Peter Cushing makes an appearance...

I got the "Titan Hero Series" type 12" droid figure set from Target and picked up Chewbacca too, for good measure.

They're simple figures, but solid and pretty cool all on their own anyhow.

Love 'em. Smile

I went to the Disney Store and they had the big 14" talking SW figures on sale for only $20 each!!

I have the ones from the original trilogy, but I hadn't planned on getting the TFA ones...but at that price, I couldn't pass them up.  I didn't get the Chewie one, because they made one before.



I'm really glad I got them after all...they're pretty neat.

I got the 10 1/2 " Talking R2-D2 figure from the Disney Store thinking he'd go great with the Toys R Us Interactive C-3PO...

...and I was right!!!

they go together perfectly!!!

Ahhh, exciting times indeed!! The half a second back shot of Vader was a little disappointing though, I was expecting a little more, which is why I waited up all night for it... Nonetheless though, can't wait for this movie. bounce

Whereas Cruel Angel purchased the Hot Toys Darth Vader from A New Hope, I opted for the Sideshow one from Return of the Jedi.  

I prefer the super glossy helmet and the undercloak being underneath the shoulder armor.


The lights on the chest and belt boxes look great too.  Sorry they don't show up too well in the pic...

This close up is a little better...


Overall, despite not having the light up light saber like the Hot Toys version, I really love the Sideshow one.

I got both the regular release Star Wars Black Series 6" C-3PO from TFA and also the Walgreens exclusive one from the original trilogy.

Gotta say...they're great!  The gold paint is shiny, but not chrome, which i'm fine with. The articulation is actually pretty great...although, there is none in the elbows. 

This was taken with a flash, so it looks extra shiny...
