Ahh, "cross-over" was the word I was looking for, thanks MasterKit . I also 100% agree with you on producing the cross overs ONLY once the original has been made into a defintive form.

With the vast reduction in CW figure count and the elevated (and continually elevating) number of CW characters that I would love to own in action figure form, I would happily take them any way that Hasbro chooses to release them. However, I find it unlikely that Hasbro will venture too far from the "core characters" in the realistic line given their reluctance to venture too far from the "core characters" in the animated line.

Wow! What a difference in height, I was not expecting that. The TVC ESB Vader released in Wave 1 is too short and stocky compared to the Vader on screen. This new figure compliments Vader on screen quite nicely. I love the amber lenses, newly painted and refined chest plate, new cape, the height added and last but definitely not least, ball jointed hips. I feel these all worked very well in bringing us this new Vader. What are everyone else's thoughts?

I don't have the figure, but he looks great.

Despite the negative feedback over on the other forums.. I am still very much looking forward to this figure. I personally love how Hasbro has executed this sculpt. I love everything about it from the large gloves to the puffy shoulders. The depiction is spot and and is exactly how the character should be translated into an action figure, in my opinion. Don't feel bad leaving this figure behind as I plan to grab several of these and I know I am not alone.
