Well instead of saying sorry about your luck, I decided to start contacting people. I had a direct email address but lost it...so fro now use the CS form on their site...this is how fans help fans...w/o a profit I might add....

If you want a 25th anniversary Vader, tell hasbro, maybe with some prodding we can be sure to get a release in some form, through retail, fan club something...there is plenty of rumors nothing concrete...so let hasbro know what you think....
I couldn't drum up a direct email address but at least let your voice be heard:

just click or cut and paste and tell Hasbro what you think about the Toyfare vader....

one voice is a drop, many is a flood.

Nope, nothing concrete at all. Except for the fact that Hasbro stated at Toy Fair that it would be avaliable later on, probably in the same packaging, other then maybe removing the "2002 New York Toy Fair" printing on the sticker thru the fan club. :D

Sounds like a great idea. I like this, it's a positive approach to what's been going on around here.:)

Well done. Maybe if enough people write 'em a letter, Hasbro just might get the picture.....yeah right.

I asked 'em why they aren't making the figure available to the average joe consumer. I'll let ya'all know what they say when they reply.:crazed:

This is about the most generic brsh off I've ever heard. Has anyone else made a request to the link? If so, did you recieve the same generic response?

I wouldn't lose all hope. Though it's definitely a generic message, it could be an automated reply, or a canned response they require to be sent.

I think, despite how vacant Hasbro sometimes seems, even they must realize how hot a commodity this figure will be and wouldn't make it only a ToyFair exclusive. Especially if we make it known that we want that figure! :D

Well I got another reply today. All it said was that the Vader would be available through the FC in the near future.

Thanks for the UPDATE you dorks. We knew that already. What I wanted to know is can anyone purchase through the FC or do you have to be a member? Anyone know for sure?

I would assume you'd have to be a member. With a limited item like this, it might not even be fair to sell more than one to each customer (a la R2 Holo Leia), and they'd wanna reward their FC members over non-members.

I'm a FC memeber and I know when they decide to sell this it aint gonna be cheap,even with "special" FC prices. :greedy: :greedy:

You people are lucky, outside the US, we'll never get this figure because the FC is US exclusive.
