Great thanks to GH for this news:

Our good friend Hunter of the German site 4-inches.de (http://www.4-inches.com/)sends in word of two figures coming down the plastic pipeline in the late fall. The first is listed as a Holiday Edition Darth Vader (product no. 85965) and the second is an Utapaun Shadow Soldier (pn 26823) for Target.

Hunter tells us these are slated for release in Germany in November. Both are retailer exclusives and the Shadow Soldier is more than likely the Target exclusive Stealth Trooper first revealed at Comic-Con (http://www.galactichunter.com/sdcomiccon05/). We're very interested in seeing what Holiday inspiration Vader will be based on.

Not bad, but I dunno if Im intrested all that much. Its just some tidbits for '06. :)

Every year seems to have a different store for the holiday exclusives. Just stick to one store Hasbro.

Germany is getting the Stealth Trooper??!!

For CRYING OUT LOUD... Canada is just north of the US and we NEVER get ANY exclusives ... but Germany does?? :mad:

Just what the hell does Hasbro Canada do anyway? :frus: :mad:

I'd like to see what the Holiday Vader is gonna look like. I'm assuming that it's along the same lines as the Yoda, Jawas, and R2 and 3PO ones of the past years.

Sounds like they will be nice when we get the chance to get them.

I liked the Stealth trooper, looking forward to that one. I have all the past X-mas exclusives, so why not one more :)

I want the "Stealth trooper" but history tells me I won't find it at retail. :(

BTW, Hasbro has gone a bit "Exclusives" crazy lately haven't they?

I'll get Holi-Vader for sure but probably not the Clone.

Cool, i like the stealth trooper, though i dont remember seeing him in the movie. Ive yet to get any of the holiday figures, if holiday Vader is good he may kick start the collection.

You didnt see him in the movie because he was Stealth.

08-10-2005, 12:27 AM
He was in the movie Stealth ? No wonder we never saw him . . . I mean who DID see that movie ? lol lol lol lol lol

LOL!! damn- you're on role tonight. :crazed:

I will buy them if I can FIND them. 'Nuf said.

I think the Holiday Vader is a Vader as Santa holding a package that says to Luke from Dad. It was featured on a corporate Christmas Card in the early eighties.
I hope they do make this figure, so far I have the complete set of Holiday figures and love displaying them around the house. :)

08-10-2005, 10:44 AM
Id have to see um first to decide whether or not I want them

08-10-2005, 03:45 PM
You didnt see him in the movie because he was Stealth.

And we won't probably see him in the stores either. :dis:

If anyone finds pictures of these please post them here.

I will probably try to find both of these. I want my holiday edition collection to be complete. I already have the r2/3po, yoda, and jawas.


08-11-2005, 09:42 AM
Yea I was thinking about the Holiday Vader, but it all depends if I can find them or not. I more than likely will come across them if released in stores, but I wont go out of my way for um.

08-11-2005, 11:23 AM
Well since the last two holiday figures were online exclusives perhaps they will continue the thrend.

08-11-2005, 11:29 AM
I think once I see pix Ill know wether or not to buy or not

*EDITED* Glad to Finally be a Jedi Knight! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
