After a long struggle I managed to find a really cool UK seller who had the Sideshow Premium Format Darth Vader I was looking for such a long time. So finally Vader has landed in my back yard. [dv][OO]

The statue was MIB, I was the first to open the box to see what is inside. But didn't open it completely since I don't have a place to display this awesome piece yet. So I took a few shots and in the end I put Vader back in his original box and then stored it safely. This is until I move to the new house and find a display case for him.

Here are the pics I took yesterday afternoon:

Congratulations, that's one of the truly beautiful pieces out there, along with the MR Falcon. The light up saber is the coolest part. I have PF Leia, but I never display because once that white gown gets dirty there is no washing it. Vader won't have that problem. I would love to see one in person some day.

Thanks. Now I have to find a display box for him. Maybe an European or even better a Romanian plexi box producer. Anyone knows the exact dimensions that I need for the box?

I have the PF Vader also sergiurusu. Its one of my favorite pieces and one of the BEST Vader collectibles. I dont have it displayed either becuase of lack of proper display space -but I love it! Congrats on getting one.

Yeah, I've seen him a few times at various comic stores and he was one of the hardest things I ever had to pass up. (but alas I did, because if I ever got one PF I would have to have them all) unless they ever made a PF Bossk.....

I havnt looked into a case for mine yet. But I have Boba Fett also. I'd almost like for them to be in the same case but I'm undecided so far. I'd like to eventually get Ben to go with Vader.

It seems there is a company that makes display cases in Romania too : http://www.pleximet.ro/ Cool! I'll talk to these guys and save on shipping. :thumbsup:

I received the display case for my Premium Format Darth Vader. It was made by a Romanian company www.pleximet.ro and is really professionally made. It is very large and heavy, protected on each side by a plastic sheet that comes off when I'll get it ready for display. It costed about $70 including shipping.

No pics of it yet because I packed it up and brought it to my new house where it will wait until I move there and then PF Vader will have a display home :)

Please could anyone describe me the way Vader stays on the stand (pics if possible)? I mean on Vader's foot there a hole, and a similar hole is on the stand. The holes were filled with small wooden sticks (for protection I think) when I first opened the box to look at the statue. Does anyone know if Vader comes with a metal rod to fit in both his boot and stand holes, or he just stays like that? Thanks

don't have the piece myself (maybe someday)...but did you look at Vader's boots to see if there are pegs there? I know his saber lights up so maybe that's the way...

I only have Vader and I'd like to get some more imperials. Too bad the Scout on Speederbike is so HUGE, no way I'm going to have space to display this thing
