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.
I finished season II a few days ago, pretty good. Where are you at in the series Tycho?
The League Season VII, decent but it ran out of steam a few years earlier imho.
The Frozen Chosen ~ A documentary about sturgeon spearing
Its cool to see the respect she has been getting in the national media (and deserved imho). I read a story how she was watching the UT men's team practice
Currently at 12 to go.
I'd say it should start soon, say 10 to go. I'd assume they'll pop in live when he is up to bat with 2,999.
Work, run, food, sleep, work.
Mid 70's, sun and a breeze. Not too shabby.
That's the same thing for my maternal GM; it happened much faster (within one year) for my paternal GM.
Humid (don't know the percent, but easily over 40% from the 18% it had been) and hot (stretch of 100 or more over almost a week now). In the 5-day forecast:
Death Star in a Box. I like that.
