Sorry, got distracted by the Snowtrooper in the background, still looks really sharp and I hope the production model looks that good.
Anyway, as for Vader, I'm excited by the idea here, but as an owner of Sideshow's ANH Vader there's a lot that seems similar which leaves me wondering if I'll bother with this. The helmet shape is similar (the ANH movie helmet is quite different from Sideshow's sculpt) and the chestbox and undersuit and codpiece and belt look the same (there I think are supposed to be some differences from ANH to ESB but they're pretty minor IIRC). Most importantly for me though, the height still looks way too tall just as the ANH figure did, Vader's eyeline should be just to the top of the Snowtrooper's helmet - but maybe this is a composite image done wrong, one can hope. I doubt I'll buy this Vader since I can recreate almost everything except the look of the gloves with the ANH Vader (basically just move the inner robe under the shoulder armor) but I am excited to see more pictures of this piece and its "deluxe" removable helmet with its separate stand, and maybe I can convince myself to buy it.

Maybe when we meet up, we can discuss attending WonderCon together. I'm very curious to find out what it looks like at the LA Convention Center.
Steve Blum was definitely playing more notes and moods this time. I thought he did a great job this week.
JT - I noticed the exact same thing...sort of a disappointment, but I suppose it's a trade-off for the really good detailing on the rest of the ship.
