    OK, this has gone been ridiculous! An all red painted Vader!

    And can you believe that SWS.com won't let anyone else sell this?!?

    Wow - compared to the adorable Jawas from last year and the Santa Yoda from the past, this figure seriously blows.

    Oh well one less thing for me to want to buy.

    What I found so funny was how hard they are trying to spin this figure in its description! It is obvious that this figure isn't going to sell itself on its looks!

    A little redeeming thing is that it says prototype pictured! Let us hope that is so!

    The Christmad R2 and 3PO were kind of neat. And I really liked the Santa Yoda. I never saw the Jawas bearing gifts. There is no way I'll buy this monstrosity.

    My theory: During the creation of the Lava Vader figures, there was a horrible mechanical malfunction with the red paint machines in the factory. As a result, we now have some "Christmas" Vaders laying around.

    My other theory: This is a test by Hasbro to see just how crappy an item they can create that the collector will still buy.

    Worst. Holiday. Figure. Ever.

    Wow compared to Jawas and Yoda this is just...bad for lack of a better word.

    Everybody knows I love Vader and he's mostly what I collect, but I certainly WON'T be buying this one! [face_not_talking]

    I had just one thing to say when I saw the pic of it......

    "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"



    :p

    Even if it is a prototype how much better could it get?

    Red Vader with a Santa hat?

    Actually that would be pretty cool.

    The only holiday figures I got were the droids. I passed on the others. Of course if they did a holiday Fett I'd get a couple..

    ^^I'm surprised they haven't done a Holiday Fett, yet. I'd buy a Fett with a Santa hat and a bag slung over his shoulder. :cool:

    As for Vader: This is awful. I thought it was a joke. :(

    I'm going out right now and making customs of this figure to sell on ebay...just gotta get my easter egg dipping tools, my red paint, and all my old POTF2 substandard Vaders...I'll make a fortune!

    Seriously, what a lame idea. That really, really doesn't say Christmas to me...red alone is not a Christmas color, idiots (the designers, not you guys), where are the greens at? Maybe keeping him all black but giving him a candy cane shaped like a lightsaber and a Santa hat with a present under one arm would have made him more appealing...anything but this...

    Nothing says, "Have a craptacular Christmas!" like celebrating it with this omega sucky Vader exclusive...

    I'm lucky to have found the first 3 Christmas exclusice. But with just one look I know that I will be skipping this one.

    [face_skull] This thing is just ugly. [face_skull] God have mercy on all the souls that buy this. [face_skull]

    Hmmm...perhaps...I guess there are a few crazy people out there. I would hesitate to have to buy it and own it long enough to sell it to someone else...I'd be afraid it would stink up the rest of my collection...I'm voting "no" on this one with my wallet...

    All jokes aside I'm going to wait for a final image on this one before I decided one way or another. There was alot of up roar over the carded Wedge until we saw the real thing. I'd point out that the holiday sets in the past have all matched the card almost exactly. Since the only thing on this card isn't a red vader there may be some hope for a decent set.

    I missed the droids, but I love my Holiday Yoda and Jawas. I had to buy this set to continue the line, but I have to admit that at this point he is Tha suck.
