    Lightbulb The Definitive Vader

    I think the Dagobah Ghost version is the most accurate of all the Vader sculpts Hasbro has done. Would anyone besides me like to see this figure reissued in regular black plastic to give us the best Vader figure ever?

    I do not concur. That Vader is good, I do not think it to be the best. I'd have to say that the Vader from the Sith Lords two pack is the best and most accurate.

    It seems that Hasbro is in the habit lately of re-furbashing figures to make new ones, so I hope that they would. Still I never trust them to do anything that they should
    If you want to find it you have to shop.

    The Dagobah Vader never looked right to me. I think the Commtech, Sith Lords, EW, and 25th Vaders are all more accurate.

    Although if we must get a new Vader, then give him a two-piece removable helmet, removable hand, cloth capes and a lightsaber with a removable blade. Add in tons of articulation and it is the last Vader figure Hasbro would ever need to make.

    Vaders...

    Which Vader figure is the Sith Lords version? And which is the EW version? Also, isn't the 25th Anniversary edition the same mold as the POTF2 Vader? Not sure, it just looks similar.

    The Sith Lords was a two pack with a newly sculpted Darth Maul and Darth Vader on a little stairway (I believe it was a stairway - I only saw it once, and I really regret not picking one up).
    The EW version is the POTJ Emperor's Wrath figure and the 25th Anniversary is a new sculpt. It and the EW are much more accurate versions of the Darth Vader, IMO, but I would like a normal one, like what BB stated. I've been waiting for an Ultimate Vader and Ultimate Jedi Luke for a long time...

    End .
    They call them fingers, and yet they don't fing. Noodle that one for a while.

    I like the commtech one personally, but it lacks articulation, and the soft goods cape has neve really looked right. The Dagobah one was cool too, but i agree with Barada; if we want a definitive Vader, we need a new sculpt.

    Which, unfortunately, is why we will NEVER see this made. Darth Vader figures are a hot ticket, so they will want to continue making as many versions as they can.

    If they made one as good as you say, then they wouldn't be able to sell as many of the future versions. Sucks for us collectors... but I guess buisness is buisness.
    Wha'choo talkin 'bout Hasselhoff?

    I agree with Bigbarada, alas we may never see this happen, cause Hasbro is in the habit of making money. More Vaders equal more dollars, to make one that is 100% correct. I doubt we'll ever see it happen.
    THANKS FOR THE AT-TE & FALCON HASBRO. NOW IT'S TIME FOR A LARGE TANTIVE IV!

    They could just re-release it every now and then like they did with the vintage line - they just released the same sculpt of the main characters and then cycled them through. That way more new figures could be made while still getting the best figure versions of the main characters.
