    My apologies it just begged to be done..

    Courtesy of hydrogen_helium and just be glad I didn't post that condom wrapping with Vader on it. [face_laugh]

    Though it does prove how much of an iconic villian he has become.

    Does this, by any chance include TFU? [face_whistling]

    The only reason I STILL play that abomination is for the first level. My cousin and I like to get the Wookiees all lined up on one of those suspended bridges, then aiming a charged up Force push so the bridge bounces them in all directions.

    We call it "The Wookiee Trampoline". It's a total blast, you can waste hours just sending Wookiees flying. [face_laugh]

    Don't I know that. Think I got myself five or six trophies just standing there killing them. You should try playing bowling as well, that's a fun time.

    I'll definitely give it a go.

    You know what else is awesome? Picking up a stormtrooper, then dangling him above another one so he frantically grabs onto the second trooper's leg to try to get back down, then throwing them both over the horizon. Two for the price of one! [face_laugh]

    Vader doesn't laugh at fools. He chokes them.

    :p

    Palpatine; however.... made Cackling into a diabolical artform.

    I just can't imagine Vader laughing. It's like trying to picture a completely new color in my head. [face_hypnotized]

    Doesn't he laugh in one of the Coruscant Nights books? Or am I imagining things?

    I need to reread them again soon anyways...

    Isn't that series the one in which Vader shook an entire building when he was P-O'd?

    Surprised, actually. And incidentally, Vader shook a Coruscant skyscraper in ROTS itself.

    Remember how the room shakes when Vader has his epic tantrum after finding out about Padme's death? Well, that room is, as per all relevant EU, at one of the top floors of the tallest building on that section of Coruscant, so for it to be shaking... [face_mischief]

    I always thought he "buckled" the room, not the entire building...
    Interesting.

    Buckled? The camera's acting like every bridge shot in the original Star Trek when the Enterprise took a hit.

    Rapid back-and-forth shaking during the height of the tantrum. Which indicates- to me, at least- that the whole room is shaking during that interval.

    Somebody should PM every Vader fan and tell them how bad the ending of TFU2 is...
    The entire fanclub will hate it.


    Its awful.

    Oh, and about the other thing- see my rant in the TFU thread in Lit. I think you might find it amusing what I compare Vader's treatment to in terms of utter ludicrosity. :p

    Do you want me to give you a full break down comparison to a movie helmet?
    Or would you like info on which helmets are more screen accurate?

    Other then the distinct price increase to £100

    On that helmet its several things.

    It doesn't have the silver and black colour scheme that the on-screen helmet possesses. (Or if it does, it's in the wrong colour)
    Theres also the 'neck flare' and lenses are set too far forward and are the wrong colour.
    I think there are a few more minor things too that I can't recall off the top of my head, although I believe those are the main ones.

    no problem. I know way too much about that subject.

    The helmet isn't 501st standard, but it still is okay and if you're looking for a semi decent helmet to wear for some fun and not looking to spend around £100 upwards £700 for anything completely movie acurate, its the way to go really.

    I have a modified Don-Post 1997 myself which cost me ~£130 and is pretty much acurate although it does need a little work doing to it still.
