It's the most popular character on the most popular style of cards, the first new Vader release in two years, and the first one with a three-piece removable helmet. If you didn't see that coming, then I think you need to get your head checked. :p

Vader is a staple of the line so he's going to be released and rereleased every year. The sooner you get used to that the better.

Since we're on the subject of TVC Vader. I am a little annoyed that they stuck him on an ESB card again; but I'm pretty sure that we'll get SW and ROTJ versions soon enough. In fact I'm counting on it.

I would buy another Vader to keep carded on the SW card and there are two ROTJ versions of Vader that I would like to see:
1. with the "pointing" photo from the vintage release
2. labeled as "Darth Vader (with Removable Helmet)," using a reference photo of Sebastian Shaw in the Vader suit, and packaged with his helmet off and stored in a bubble above the figure.

I just wanted an excuse to link to the "No Button." I'm not actually complaining. :)

How will the three-piece Vader differ from the two-piece Vader? I assume the lower "harmonica" piece will be removable (though this is never seen on film, so why it's necessary is beyond me) but will the pieces fit together any better than the two-piece helmet that took a bit of boiling and forcing to fit properly?

I dunno, that's just what they said at Toy Fair. And my two-piece version fits fine, so I don't know why you had to boil anything.

I hadn't considered this... what would be the third piece, and why?

As this photo (http://www.rebelscum.com/photo.asp?image=/TLC/Basic/08Vader/TLC-633.jpg) shows, there can be a seem where the two pieces come together on the side and front. At first I could smash the top down flush but over time the plastic would reform to it's "original" shape and the dome would rise, in some cases popping off. (I think there is a thread waaaay back in TLC that discusses this being a relatively common issue.) Anyway, I boiled the pieces to be able to get them to rest more snugly without popping off randomly.

Hmm. Mine was always fine. I've had the helmet off for a long time now, as he's on my shelf that way. I'll try it again soon and see if anything's warped.

Then dammit maybe they should release the next one with a removable helmet and a kettle packed with it for boiling. Jeez.

I don't think one new vader a year is such a bad thing, or even a re-release of him. It's when they go and release 6 or so (I think it was 2007/8?) in one year that he gets insanely old really fast.

The top helmet part is just up too high.
