Rumored for a TRUS release. It's modeled after the Dagobah Spirit one and his saber is all silver; there's no red blade.

Nonetheless, it's cool getting one rather than paying $200 for one from Brian or something.

Same here. Next to Boba, he looks to be the coolest of them all so far :)

Hey Katarn07 do you know around when they are going to release them?

Confirmed by "tru employee"! The Silver Darth Vader figure that recently showed up online will be a Toys "R" Us exclusive this fall. It is now listed in the computer as "EX Silve Vader" and has a retail value of $9.99. For those interested, the SKN number is 532350. No order quantities or dates yet.

Sadly, no. I think we can expect it fall/winter though. It does say 2004 on the packaging but the silver clone did say 2003 didn't it? I think I got that right before summer this year.

Sandtrooper's Comic Con and that's happening the 22 I think. Does any online guy have it yet? If not, they'll definately have them once Comic Con begins.

I don't really like how it looks. Making the POTF2 Vader with Removable Helm woulda been really cool. :)

PotJ Emperor's Wrath/ Saga Imperial 4-Pack/ OTC Hoth is my personal favorite.

I thought that the recarded OTC Vader from ESB was gonna be 'Hoth Vader?' Are they having the Saga Bespin one then?

I forgot about that one. That is my favorite Vader. Then the PotJ Emperor's Wrath/ Saga Imperial 4-Pack.

There are three.

Saga Vader Throne Room Duel (RotJ)
Saga 4-Pack Hoth Vader (ESB)
PotF2 Commtech Chip (I think that's it; he has a cloth cape) (ANH)

masters of the darkside also has cloth cape, and that 4pk vader is a re-cast of emps wrath...so its basically emps wrath.

Might be Masters of the DS then. I'm not sure.

And the OTC Vader ESB is a recast of PotJ Emperor's Wrath and is therefore the 'Hoth Vader.' (that's what Rebelscum calls it). Whether or not he'll have a Bespin background or a Hoth background is a mystery to me. I think it should be Bespin to match the Luke.

I myself like potf2 commtech vader better, only because that pose is good for just about any scene..

i like the new vader except i think the lightsaber and his "eyes" should have that metallic red color like the toy fair one did. IMO it would make it look way better.:)

i agree, it would be better..

Katarn07

At the very least the saber needed to be red. The eyes woulda been cool too.

It's coming around the same time as the DVD and will be the last silver figure.

What? No silver Cantina Han Solo?
