Heres a picture of what has to be the best Vader Statue/Figure made. The bad thing is, it's only available in Japan.

I think I need a Japan Connection real soon.:eek:

Sorry no I don't know the release date.

A friend just let me know that Action Figure Express will have them, and they are taking pre orders already. I think it will cost $100.00 but I'm not sure.

I wonder if they would be cheaper in Japan. If you don't mind, I'd like to keep in touch with you and see what your friend can pick one up for over there.

Thanks,

DJ

Since I'm a total Vader freak..I hope this gets released in the U.S...even if its a exclusive,I'd do some extra-special hunting.

It's up, very wild stuff! I don't think I can afford the price to buy and import this figure, but I wish I could.

Absolutely beautiful! Is $95 the import price or the approx. price they will be in Japan?

I want that Vader, even if I have to pay $100 for him. I definitely want that figure.

Sure thing IJG! I think you may be right about this one being the best - it's really impressive.


BB, the article says the japanese retail price will be 9,800 yen, which translates into $77 US. They won't be imported "officially", as I understand it.

Hmm, I guess it's time to call in a favor to a buddy of mine in Japan. He got me a Gamecube before they were released in the U.S. :)

Have you seen the Clone trooper from Koto, brillant, Hasbro could learn a thing or 2 from them...

Yeah, even if these are model kits, Hasbro should start takin' notes.
