If I should happen to win, I'll take pictures of it, from it's initial carded phase, to disassembling and melting it, to remolding it as a metallized, customized E-3PO.


Whoa, don't have a heart attack, I was kidding. :)

If I should happen to win, I intend to open it and display it next to my computer. And then I will also take pictures of it loose and send it in to Sir Steve so he can post them. And no, I am not kidding, I am gonna open it. :D

Well, if I win, I'm gonna open it and take pictures of me and Vader hanging out at Hooters, drinking beer and flirting with the waitresses.

Then we'll go to a local stri...dance bar and take pics of Vader stuffing dollar bills down...

Um, I gotta get out more often.:crazed:

Well, good luck to everybody who entered. I do want to see this figure open, so maybe I should be wishing SK99 extra luck. ;)

Well I'm one who opens to. I don't have anything that is not unopened. I just can see having the toys without being able to touch and hold them. Most of what I have now I would have loved as a kid but couldn't have. Now that I'm older :frus: I have the chance to have those that I wanted as a kid. So you bet.I will open it if I'm lucky to win.

I'm gonna study Episode II and figure out how to clone it, so I'll have one to open and one to keep mint!

Well, you could pay a few million and figure out how to clone a second one if you win, or just buy a second one thru the fan club for 14.99. Ya know, I feel sorry for the people that paid $150-$300 bucks on ebay for one...oh wait, no I don't. :D ;)

Yep, I'm serious, I noticed it yesterday. And I might add that they were Sold Out. I'm guessing they only had a few . . . but they did clarify that the Fan Club will be selling them at a much lower price later this year.

Gah, I just looked. That's just nuts. I think in this case most of us can actually praise the Fan Club for such a decent price. By the way here is what Brian's Toys had listed for the Vader:

Toy Fare Exclusive Darth Vader - SOLD OUT
This item will be available through the fan club later this year. We will be selling them at a much lower price (though they will not have the NY Toy Fare sticker)

Price: $295.95

I dunno, sounds to me from what I read on Yakface and what they have listed on various sites, including the Fan club that's selling it, that it will have the NY Toy Fair sticker on it. Oh well, guess we will have to wait and see. :D

That's a bargain! In Argentina, it would cost you 585.981 Peso's.
But it's nothing compared with 683,644.50 Peso's in Colombia!

Although in Bahrain, it would only be 111.558 Dinars, so you're better off picking one up over there.

I thought I noticed that specification on the Fan Club site when I ordered it too . . . either way I don't care because I am just interested in getting the same figure on that cool black backing card :)

What can you expect from a gut who's charging $19.99 for a stupid Eeth Koth? My Wal-Mart can't get rid of this guy for $6.44!!!

Holy criminy! It took nearly an hour to get my order through...at 1 in the freakin' morning to boot! Not that many people can possibly be up at this hour doing the same thing, can they?

Oh, well. Think of all the time and money I saved by not flying to New York...:cool:
