Apparently, Sideshow has plans for a new RotJ Darth Vader.

Nice! Is it me or does the nose on this guy/ the look, hark a little tiny bit to Dave Prowse?!

At least in this lighting.

Again, look at his nose and eyebrows. lol!!

Just think they used the look of the full scale reveal bust head for the sixth scale sculpt.

I saw that and I'm reserving any judgement until I see more pics. The ANH had several flaws that I'm sure that you all know of, I wonder if the issues have been resolved for this release? It would probably be a great figure if I didn't know all of the details on the suits and helmets :lol

I read a post from the Guy who painted the prototype ( Nathan Eakins ) that the scupt is based on Sebastian Shaw , albeit a more sinister version of him.

Some updated information on this, the figure is supoosed to be a mashup of ESB and ROTJ in style. I'm hoping that both looks can be achieved from this.

I might get one of these. The question is what to do with Yeti ANH Vader? :toothy

Sell it while it still demands high prices on eBay.

I was never after high prices. I usually prefer helping a collector instead of asking ebay prices. I might try to find its box and decide what to do with it. This ANH Vader is anyway my replacement since the first one sent by SS was damaged be stupid FedEx (I love FedEx so much :violent )

If they made the dome bigger or wider it would probably look better.

Yep, they are getting there, slowly. Much improved. Lots of room for improvment still but likeable.

Not sure if I'll be getting this one. I don't really like their ANH version but don't like this one too much either. Need to see more.
