View Full Version : Silly Vader!! ...What are you doing???

10-29-2001, 09:19 AM
I was just taking a look at the box for the "Imperial Attack Base". There's Vader up on top with his lightsaber all activated and swinging...! I was just thinking how funny it was that he was pictured like that on EVERY box (or so it seems). Lightsaber activated... warranted or not... Fzzzzztttt!!! Dark Lord is ready to duel... kinda like "Ha! Look at ME... I'M impressive!!!" I dunno... maybe it was just funny to me, but I wanted to throw it up here.

Sure, if it makes you happy why not.

Well, if you had a lightsaber imbedded in your arm wouldn't you want to show it off all the time?

Stormtrooper-"Oh looky, Lord Vader is whipping out his saber again. Okay everybody pretend to be impressed. Ooooooo:rolleyes:"

Darth Vader-"They love me! They really love me!!"

:D :D :D

Maybe Kenner thought the tip of the lightsaber looked too much like Vader had a finger extended, perhaps a middle finger. However, don't you all remember that Vader ingited his saber all the time: to open doors, to point to items far away, while in his TIE Fighter, on Hoth, while talking to the Emperor, threatening the bounty hunters, etc. ;)

The title of this thread would make a good signature line. I can just see one of the stormtroopers standing next to Vaderwhile he's choking Capt Antilles with his arms akimbo and shaking his head "Silly Vader...What are you doing..." That cracks me up.:D

"Silly Vader, mind tricks are for kids!"
"Silly Vader, JediTricks isn't a kid!"
"Silly Vader, yes you are! A-goo goo goo! A silly little Vader! Yes! Yes!"
"Silly Vader, Nilly Nader! Big fat Gilly Wader!"
"Silly, Vader. That's the word you want. 'Silly'."
"Silly Vader is the best kind of Vader."

Others? :p

"There's an awful amount of sill in here."
"All the better to sill you with, my dear!"
"Oh no! It's a Silly Vader!"

"Sill 'e Vader? Is 'at what he done? He done sill 'e Vader fer a dollah? Well, he'd a-been eble t' sill 'is Vader fer more-n 'at on that there eBay, I reckon."

"To avoid all that sill that's out there, use Sill Evader. By S.E. Johnson Wax."

"Vader. Silly Vader. Agent 00-1138."

Wasn't his name used in famous Apu lines from the Simpsons?

"Silly Vader, you cannot hurt the Twinkie."
"Silly Vader, a Jolly Rancher is not a sprinkle."
"Silly Vader, please do not feed my god a peanut."

Look out! It's Solo blastin' you outta the sky!

'Oh my god! I'm gonna die!'

Silly Vader,
I will not turn.
Silly Vader,
I'll make you burn.

Don't come fightin' me no more,
Don't wanna see your shadow form no more.
Know you used to be a war machine,
Don't wanna join the Sith team.

Now, Vader,
Stay away from m' dreams
Silly Vader
C'mon let me be.

Silly Vader...

"Silly Wader!!...You can't catch a fish in that sewer run-off!!!":rolleyes:

I was looking for an Imperial Attack Base thread and found this one instead.

Anyway, I just bought a vintage one still in the box. It was missing the Big cannon and one of the roof pieces to the little control thing in the back, but it still rocks! A whole bunch of these together would make a cool diorama. It got me thinking how cool the vintage playsets are compared to the newer ones. Compare this or the Rebel turret playset to that wimpy little Hoth playset Hasbro just put out. Euuch. What is that? A gun turret for Ewoks?

Do you think Hasbro will break out these old molds? They seem to be digging through all their old ship molds, so why not throw out this or the Rebel turret set or Yoda's Dagobah cave?

Well... I can see why the Turret/Probot one wouldn't be redone. They already gave us the Probot with the POTF2 line and there were a tonne of them clearanced. As for the Dagobah set... we've kicked that one around quite a bit. I still have mine even though the "swamp" has deteriorated. Need to just go find some grey foam and VOILA! The Imperial Attack base was cheap, but loads of fun. I never quite got why the Empire had this one. I thought this was more in line with Echo Base, but who am I to say?

...and finally to marry "Natalie Portman's face looks like a tuber" and "Silly Vader... what are you doing?"

"Silly Vader... your wife's a tater!"
