Nice, isn't it . I couldn't wait to display this even though I have no space right now so I just put it on top of its own box. Wonder how SS Vader will look next to this one? Would love to have the ATTAKUS Vader but Attakus statues are so expensive.
By the way, got my Medicom Vader yesterday. Wish I had bought two instead of just one. Too late now. It looks beautiful and I havent even taken it out of the box yet

Plo, do you have the GG Vader statue? It's a nice looking piece and makes a good substitute while we wait for the SS Vader . My online order arrived last month and except for the fragile chain around his neck, everything about him is tip-top.
I was tempted, but decided to stay focused...I've ordered the SS Vader & Grievous, and might get the Obi Wan too, so have to give the GG Vader a miss...
General Grievous was first released with an edition size of 1500, and was exclusive to the Sideshow Collectibles website. By buying this version you received something extra, an “expertly tailored fabric cape with clasp.” It is now sold out. However, the same figure is again available, but without the cape, in an edition size of 2500. It has been advertised very well to be available at both Sideshow’s website and other retailers.
The Darth Vader figure was done in a similar fashion, but with one very important difference. Again, it was first released to include something extra, this time adding a mouse droid (in a slightly larger edition size of 2000). However, when they released the regular edition that did not include the mouse droid, it was sold through retailers and not directly through Sideshow’s website. Because of this, many people do not realize that another 2500 pieces exist.
So, to summarize: General Grievous: 1500 with cape + 2500 without cape = 4000 total Darth Vader: 2000 with mouse droid + 2500 without mouse droid = 4500 total
We just want people to be aware of how many of these beautiful pieces exist, because an educated buyer is a happy buyer! Special thank you goes to Todd Thomas for pointing out some important facts for us."
Koto's Ep.III Vader has arrived in Msia. However, they made a small mistake with this first batch. All the Vaders have their chestplates in reverse order. The green and red buttons which are supposed to be on the left are on the right and the horizontal panels with the red stripes are on the left.
To me, this is a minor mistake. Nothing to worry about. But if you insist on accuracy then you'll have to wait for August. That's when Koto said they'll ship the correct version.
Actually, the mistake on the chestplate might just make this 'varient' of the EP3 Koto Vader a much sought after item...
I ordered the Koto vader ages ago so I'm sure I'll get this first one with the mistake. I'll probably get the new 'correct' one as well...
Exactly! Which is why im keeping the current ROTS Koto Vader i already own, and probably follow Plo's route as well. The #1 Vader is winking at me, teasing me to buy it, but wallet is screaming already, coz my Maul and the three color variant CloneTroopers are coming are arriving soon. Not to mention the Anakin ROTS and the ROTS CLoneTrooper as well!!ARGHHH!!!
