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.
Breezy with highs in the forties and lows in the upper twenties at night. Not as bad as Oklahoma where my son is going to school, though:
Ran a 5K race this morning in below freezing weather. At least it was sunny and not too windy. I ran faster than last year, but slower than two years

I just learned that a friend of mine got to meet Mandela in person, when my friend was on his Peace Corps. time in South Africa.
Rainy, upper 40s/low 50s, breezy and cloudy. Just like late fall/early winter is supposed to be, right? Even in SoCal.
Sigh. Buckeyes, you had a great "regular" season. We'll see where they go for their bowl, but now it's not going to be in Pasadena.
Awoke too early, then got about another hour's sleep. Amid light rain, dropped off recycling, for the only time I wasn't at home. Put up the outdoor
I was too busy mourning the death of Danny Wells. Of all the years for it to occur why did it have to be during Nintendo's "Year of Luigi"?
I liked this pace: an uncertain killer until close to the very end (with several of the suspects still "in the running" by then, too), Bones'
It's that time of year again. I hope you had a good day.
