We all know they suck, we just don't usually say it. But the cloth elements on Vader figures have been crappy for years now, at least since the thin, semi-translucent capes and skirts from the ROTS era. It's held these figures back from being perfect far too long, and having seen the results of Galactic Hunter's work here:
and the gallery for it specifically here:
it's clear that the realism that other armored figures have been enjoying the hell out of lately is lost on mainstream Vader figures only because of those godawful capes and skirts you've been producing. The wrong size, the wrong cut, the wrong opacity - that's what keeps Vader figures looking so toyetic. Hell, it's really a step back when you look at the rare good cloth capes like on the Masters of the Dark Side 2pack.
Vader could be nearly perfect if only you, Hasbro, would get your act together and complete what is still lacking in this design. We're so close right now, and yet clearly the example shows just how far we truly are. The TAC Stormtrooper with its new helmet design brings that figure almost to the realism level of the Medicom version, which is nearly photo-real. Vader should be there too, and judging by Galatic Hunter's example, it already could be.
