Please Hasbro is you have any respect for the Star Wars Community is general you will destroy the prototype of the Holiday Vader and redo it. This has to be the biggest piece of crap you have ever invented. :upset: :upset:
Look to the cover of the comic Return of the Jedi weekly and make the vader that appears on the cover, not the disturbing Carrie inspired hunk of blood red plastic that is in prototype stage.
What were you thinking ???? Every other holiday figure had some sort of holiday tie in like, Santa Yoda and Threepio. Reindeer R2-D2, and the gift giving Jawa's. Not one of these figures decided to bathe in blood and call it a holiday outfit.
Do not kill a great idea with that piece of crap. :upset: :upset:

I second that. Lava Vader was a joke as well. All of these repaints are just a cheap way for Hasbro to make more money with little to no effort. I'm not buying that crap. Frankly, I'm losing interest in collecting period.

OK, for $15 smackers at least choose a good looking vader...like anyone of the OTC vaders.

That red is so Crimsony that I was to say YO JOE!

Ditto what they said. Scrap the idea and make a new one. Or re-issue the 3po and R2 for those who never got them.

this sucker only ordered one this time(wish i would have waited to order the clones so i could combine shippin). i got the first 3 so i felt like i needed it. my daugter(12) will dig it. she loves the other 3. also ordered the remote r2 to play with. enough exclusives though. just make more ewoks & droids.

Hasbro, with every new exclusive, you make it easier to not be a completist.

Guess I'm in the minority of folks who are looking forward to getting this. Meh. :)

Good thing you have a President who opposes such ideas, then. ;)

I don't know, the Vader by itself looks kind of goofy, but that goes for about 75% of Hasbro's offerings in the first place. Soooooooo when you put that average red Vader on a wicked cool card like that, I'd say it's shaping up to be a nice Holiday Exclusive #4. Definitely my least favorite of the bunch but I still like it. Oh well. :)

Yeah, you know, I am getting it if for no other reason than I have this thing about exclusives, but I will admit that I did hesitate for a second. I'm not sure what they were thinking with this thing beyond trying to dump some outdated product in a unique way. The other Xmas exclusives were so well done and appropriate. This just isn't quite up to standards unfortunately.

I posted this in another thread, but here goes again.

With just a little thought and PAINT, Hasbro could do much better and still use this figure. Click the link for a photoshopped example:
