Has anyone else had issues with Vader's left arm (the one reaching out) staying up? Meaning if I put out his arm as if he's reaching for Luke, it just falls down by his side. Do I have a flawed figure or are they all like that?

Flawed arm? The whole figure is Flawed. It looks much better in the package. Mine was fine until my dog chewed it up.

Mine has had his left arm out in front for months now without problems. Occasionally, the figure pitches forward because of funky leg sculpt/pose issues, but the arm remains up.

I have mine with his arms raised and both hands on the hilt, he stands fine unless knocked over by heavy vibrations or something touches it, but I have his safety railing there to catch him.

No problems with mine. He always keeps it up.

Looks like I'll need to pick up another if I can find him.

Thanks for all the feedback!

yeah... sorry to hear of your troubles. It's nice looking figure, but useless. Great accessories, though!!!

:p


Try KEBco... they may have a few of those left in their possession!

My Vader's arm stays up, he just has difficulty standing.

Turbo is right, he looks way better in the package. I was so excited about this Vader, until I opened him up.....

Great lightsaber though!

Try getting some Real Stands or ProTech stands. That's what I ended up doing. Plus they work with GI Joe & other types of figures

Well, with the KB clearance going on I picked up another one of these figures. And with this one his hand stays up!

I also think this is fairly movie acurate. See my attached photos

I have issues with the WHOLE figure. I really cant stand it. One of the WORST saga figures ever IMO.

Wow, Vader's having problems "keeping it up?"

I suggest crushing a few viagra pills, and sprinkling it all over Vader's troublesome part, and hoping for the best.

Hey! Whoa, whoa whoa ... the biting sarcasm thing is my thing ... go get your own ... oh wait, no my thing is absurdism sorry.

That's a darn nice diorama by the way. It proves that this figure is only good for one pose ... otherwise making it a worthless toy.

LOL, my thoughts exactly, yes the Dio is awesome, but other than that the Saga Vader sucks. It's made so cheap and the crap has to go. I love him in the package though.

Yep, I agree. That diorama is cool. The Vader works in that pose. As stated, that is the only pose he's good for.

That is a good diorama and does adequetly show that Vader isn't entirely usless but for me (not much of a diorama builder) I think it's a usless figure... hopefully Final Duel Vader will make up for it.

I just bought a second one to open(for $2.50)and I agree,muuuuch better in the package..the plastic feels cheap,not to mention the figure is a bit loose(mine anyway)whatever another loose vader for my collection...
