Can't see the point of this to be honest. If it had been a totally new figure with tons of articulation and features then I'd have been poking you in the eye to get one. I never understood the carded variant collectors at all. Just a sap and their money parted as far as I can see. Why is a metalised figure so exciting? I'm totally baffled by the fuss this has caused. And it is very amusing that there are people willing to pay so much for one on EBAY and then there's the fanclub churning hundreds out. :D Deary deary me....... :evil:
Now when hasbro get round to chucking out a decent figure that we haven't had six million resculpts of I'll get excited. I suppose the next fanclub thing will be the AOTC preview figures that are supposed to be in lmited quantities turning up in a years time by the millions at half the price. Aren't there laws about that sort of trading? What I'd give to be a fly on the wall at hasbro HQ. listening in as they plan all their rip off scams designed to part the gullible from their money.

I tried to verify this but the Fan Club nor Hasbro could NOT confirm... I tried several people as well... :(

After you have collected all the available figures it gets a little boring,so collecting variations and errors livens things up and if you have the money why not collect something that you enjoy. If you plan on coming to these forums and criticising other collectors don't bother posting replies.

Well said turbowars. I like the figure, and the card reminds me of buying figures back in the old days. Wish I still had my vintage collection, but really I prefer the new stuff. The vintage stuff was good for it's time. It's still very nostalgic. I definatly cannot wait to get one of these, so I can open it and display it. And the card I will save along with all my other 400 or so freed figure cards. :)

Well it should cost about $3-5.... so we'll probably end up paying $9.99 each. :p
The Vader figure, while just a repainted FB Vader on new packaging, I would like to have, I'm a completionist, plus I think it does kinda look cool, not anywhere above $15 cool though. :D
Oh well,ebays my only way of getting this.ahhhhh I hate it when they do this :(
