Does anyone have a Vader Bespin Duel with a closed fist that they can post a picture of or tell me were I could find one?

-Thanks:D

That is what I've heard but never seen. It is supposed to be a better representation of the scene in ESB with Vader making a fist but I'm not sure if it's a true varaition at this point or simply another rumor.:confused:

Vader with the closed fist is actually from the Unleashed line, and would be three inches taller than the basic figures:

Well, he has his fist closed on the insert, but I've seen quite a few Bespin Vaders, and I never saw one with a closed fist on the actual figure...I think it's just a rumor.

That's probably the root of the confusion right there. :)

Actually, the figure is based more on this scene, not the clenched fist scene of Vader talking to Luke. I doubt that there is a clenched fist version out there, there would have been pictures popping up by now, if it was true. I'll post the link of the version that mista_carrot did with the action figures, also. :D

Whoa, that's a really cool scene mista_carrot did. I thought it was the movie at first and I had to do a double take. Are the figures overlayed onto a still from the movie, or is that entire thing a diorama?

You guys are probably right that the rumor started because someone confused the Unleased with the Bespin Duel Vader.

Thanks for posting the cool pics JarJar. I was unaware at how close the figures poses matched that particular scene. Cool.:sur:

There is a Vader with a fist that is more closed than the one that is on display. I have both of them. I'm not sure if the 'variant' is a big deal or not, but I've only seen one of the Vader with the more closed fist. If I had the technology I'd put a picture up, but its certainly not an all the way closed fist.
Then how would Vader use his sweet force magnet gimmick!!!

Uh let me shed some light here. The figure has an open hand, the picture shows a closed fist. Basically they should have just used the open hand picture. Check the back of the Empire Strikes Back Video box to the non special edition and you'll see what I mean. There is no close fist version of vader as a Now Saga figure.
