This was posted over at Sideshowcollectors.com. Apparently revealed at Comic Con. More pictures are likely to follow of this guy soon.

hm, did Prowse have pectorals like that? The leather suit seems a bit too snug. There's hardly one crease. I like my ROTJ better :toothy

Yours is RotJ right? He had a more even look down the front than in ANH/ESB, so is probably not necessary.

Looks like a slightly idealized ESB/RotJ hybrid

yeah,
i thought it was ROTJ. because the lenses of the helmet appear to be larger like in ROTJ. but the pose and the base suggests ESB.
what else suggests its ESB besides the base and pose? is it the paint scheme of the helmet its self? becasue it appears that the cheeks and the bridge of the nose are a different(brighter) gun metal paint than the neck.
looks pretty cool though..not bad..not bad at all.

For sure they lost a knob on the belt box :wink:
BTW, the dome, the tusks, the cape hook on the chestarmor, and the chestbox are ROTJ

aahh yes..so this is a ROTJ then. what are the chances that this is one of Gino's life size statues that he is letting SS use for the comicon? just to show as an example of what SS it planing on doing for a life size Vader maybe? just a thought i had,

A fine figure to be sure but Gino's Vaders are more identifiable as "Gino" Vaders over what I would call screen accurate. (take that comment with a grain of salt) This was immediately identifiable as a Gino Vader or even a copy of a Gino Vader.

I'm not knocking it, just throwing my 2 cents in. I do have to hand it to those guys though for getting much better props replicas out to the general public than ever before regarding Vader.

Okay, let me rephrase that; RotJ with a touch of ESB :blah
Look at the dome (not just at the center strip, but the general shape), the dome placement (too low for RotJ), the shoulder armor (no cape hook).

BTW: I don't think we're looking at a Sideshow product here, but at Gino's RotJ Vader. :wink:

There is actually a cape hook but who's looking? ;) lol

If it is just for display (lets hope) looks like his earlier version items were thrown onto the figure.
